McDonald’s UK Restaurants Will All Be Closed for the Funeral of the Queen

Published

on

For the Queen’s funeral on September 19, all McDonald’s locations in the UK will be closed until later in the evening.

To Pay Respects

McDonald’s claimed that the decision was made to “enable everyone at McDonald’s to pay their respects” to Queen Elizabeth II via twitter announcing their decision

Due to the fact that it is a bank holiday, many companies around the UK will be closed for Queen Elizabeth II funeral, but some of those that would often be open have said they will be closing.

The decision to close for the day is left up to individual trusts, but thousands of hospital appointments are likely to be impacted.

While others are planning to remain open and broadcast the funeral, many of the biggest movie theatre companies in Britain will be closing their doors so their personnel can pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

Center Parcs came under heavy fire for ejecting visitors on the day of the burial, but they have already reversed course and will no longer eject vacationing families from their villas for the day.

As for McDonald’s, they intend to close its locations on September 19 until at least 5 p.m. The fast food juggernaut added that when it reopened after that, it will “vary from shop to store.”

The Queen (kinda) owned a McDonald’s

While some McDonald’s are open 24 hours a day, all of their fast food restaurants will close at midnight on September 19 in observance of Queen Elizabeth II burial.

Given that the McDonald’s in Oxfordshire’s Banbury Gateway Shopping Park is located on property held by the Crown Estate, Queen Elizabeth II actually (sort of) owned a McDonald’s.

It is unknown if Queen Elizabeth II ever visited, however according to her former chef Darren McGrady, despite her love of hamburgers, she wasn’t a great fan of the fast food restaurant.

As a child, he was taught that the only meal you should eat with your fingers is afternoon tea, thus Queen Elizabeth II always ate her hamburgers without the bread and with a knife and fork. He revealed this to Insider.

Some people thought McDonald’s choice to offer employees time to pay their respects was “a very decent call,” while others thought it was “going too far now” to actually close the restaurant. Opinions on the decision were divided.

Many criticized the McDonald’s 5 o’clock reopening, suggesting that customers going there after her burial is “what the Queen would have wanted,” while others said the company was in “McMourning.”

One individual said that reopening at 5pm would be a “PR trick” and that the fast food restaurant business should provide employees the “whole day or none at all” instead.

Many people expressed displeasure that McDonald’s will be closed during the funeral, and some said they wanted to eat at the eatery on their vacation.

The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will be held at Westminster Abbey London.

YouTuber to Face Massive Jail Time

*WARNING!!! This article may have content that could upset readers or cause discomfort*

After posting the video of herself dining into the enormous bowl of soup, teacher Phonchanok Srisunaklua, whose YouTube channel is called Gin Zap Bep Nua Nua and translates to “Eat spicy and delicious,” provoked controversy last week.

A Huge Deal

After recording herself consuming a bowl of soup made from a protected species of bat, the YouTuber was taken into custody. The outrage over Phonchanok’s film was not about the dark brown soup or the tomatoes floating in it; rather, it was about the Lesser Asiatic yellow bats in the bowl. There are innumerable channels on the internet devoted to food and eating.

Getting Ratings

Phonchanok recorded herself dissecting the bats and dipping them in a sauce, calling them “delicious,” as if having the bats in the soup wasn’t enough. To the shock of the viewers, who lambasted her for putting herself “at risk,” she showed the bat to the camera, pointed out its teeth, and crunched down on the “soft bones.”

Since then, the video has been removed from the original page, and Phonchanok was detained for breaking the Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act with the video. She might now spend the next five years in jail or pay a $14,000 fine.

Asda Employees, According to KSI, Are Peddling Prime Drinks at the Underground Market

According to KSI, staff at ASDA are selling energy drinks for a profit on the gray market, which is the source of the company’s frequent shortages.

Energy Drinks on the Black Market?

The YouTuber, 29, made the assertion in reference to his Prime Hydration energy drink, which was introduced in January along with fellow YouTuber Logan Paul, 27.

Although it is only $2, it turns out that the beverages are being resold on eBay for considerably more. As of the time of writing, one search turned up cans priced for as much as £13.85 per bottle.

The drink never appears to be accessible because ASDA staff members are selling it for a profit, according to KSI, who made this statement in an interview with The Fellas podcast that reappeared in a Dexerto report.

Man, it’s usually sold out, he remarked. Sincerely, it’s being sold on the black market.

“I sh** you not; Asda and the Arsenal stadium are the only places you’re supposed to receive Prime. However, people are purchasing it at gas stations.

Employees at Asda are no longer placing it on the shelves, he lamented. “They’re quietly shipping it out.

“What’s the point, they ask, if I place it on the shelf and it disappears right away? I’ll just sell it myself on the illicit market, f*** it.

That’s what they’re doing, bro, and people are earning money off of it because you can’t find it anyplace, KSI continued. It’s not like we aren’t providing enough; in fact, we are providing lots.

According to CoventryLive, some ASDA stores limited the common beverage to three drinks in an effort to stay up with demand, but it still rapidly sold out.

The news source claims that some individuals, allegedly youngsters, are prepared to stand in line beginning at 5am to obtain the beverage.

Prime Hydration comes in 11 flavors, including Blue Raspberry, Grape, Orange, Lemon Lime, Tropical Punch, Ice Pop, and the seasonal, limited-edition flavor Meta Moon.

Fans of McDonald’s Were Horrified to Learn What Was in the Sweet ‘n’ Sour Dip

Published

The majority of us are aware of what we’re getting into when we order Maccies, right? Depending on your diet, you might also eat some meat, salt, and carbohydrates.

Shocking ingredient

You might be startled to learn that the Sweet ‘n’ Sour variation of fries and chicken nuggets is actually made of a rather unexpected fruit if you want your food with sauce on the side.

TikToker Evan-May Gillott (@evs kii), who shared this with us, was as astonished as the rest of the UK when she learned the “hidden” component.

She said: “Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce, McDonald’s – am I the only one who didn’t know what fruit it’s made of? Have a guess.” in a video that has received nearly 350,000 views.

What then might it be? Recipes for sweet and sour sauce frequently call for pineapple juice, but what about mango, which is frequently used in a chutney?

You would be making a mistake if you choose one of these options. Evan-May revealed that it is actually an apricot.

She exclaimed, obviously astonished by the information, “It’s f***ing apricot… it’s an apricot.”

One person wrote: “I said mango SO confidently… I had no notion that it was even a fruit.” Hundreds of individuals have expressed their surprise.

The TikToker responded, “Honestly, I never really thought about it; I just ate it. However, while eating my chips, I was instructed to check the ingredient list, and I was shocked.”

Another person wrote, “Low-key thought it was pineapple,” and a third said, “I didn’t know it had fruit in it.”

Before you start asking, the answer is no, it is not one of your daily five.
