Grant Imahara of Mythbusters fame is once again teaming up with McDonald’s to demystify how their foods are made. We’ve previously seen him reveal the secrets of the McRib and this time it’s french fries.

Rest assured, the number one ingredient is potatoes. However, they do add a few extra, scary sounding things. Dextrose, natural sugar, and corn oil are okay, but dimethylpolysiloxane is a little hard to swallow.

If you head to a McDonald’s in Taiwan on New Year’s Eve, you might have your fries served with a side of cosplay. Employees are taking special occasions like Christmas or New Year’s and turning them into costume wearing occasions. I applaud this idea; let’s make every holiday like Halloween!

Apparently, the costumes are a way to bring in more customers before the year ends, and sometimes they even pay models to come in. Outfits have been based on Child’s Play, Frozen, Dragon Ball, and more. I think McDonald’s should build upon this idea and change the food names on their menus to match the costumes.

I’m about to surprise you: McDonald’s has released a commercial that’s worth watching. It’s all about bringing archenemies together over, you guessed it, a helping of McDonald’s. The illustrations are charming, and they feature a plethora of nerdy characters including Batman and the Joker, Bowser and Mario, Pac-Man, and more! The best part? It doesn’t even make you crave McDonald’s. Well played for getting me to watch an ad McDonald’s, but it fails on the inspiring me to stuff fast food into my face front. I’m okay with that.

Check out the commercial after the break.

We are not making this one up. This is truly a Black Sabbath cover band that dresses up like the iconic McDonald’s characters. Ronald is on vocals while Grimace, Mayor McCheese and the Hamburglar provide the music. They even have t-shirts for sale, which makes them as real as any other band (until McDonald’s finds a way to shut them down). You can see them in action as they play Frying Pan which you may know better as Iron Man.

According to Asahi News, McDonald’s will only serve small size fries in Japan.

This is a crisis of epic proportions.

Apparently, there’s a labor contract dispute going on in ports along the U.S. West Coast, which means that McDonald’s in Japan can’t get potatoes it needs to make the fries. Hence, smaller fry offerings at McDonald’s locations throughout Japan. Meals that typically come with medium fries will now be 50 yen cheaper.

One day you’re having fry parties and filling up colossal titan buckets and the next day you’re in the midst of a tiny fry nightmare.

People who are fanatical about McRib have probably avoided thinking about what goes into making it. That is especially true after this photo of frozen McRibs made the rounds on the Internet last year.

As part of their “Our Food. Your Questions” campaign with former Mythbuster Grant Imahara, McDonald’s is making an attempt to reassure customers with a behind-the-scenes video.

The video also features Wes Bellamy, the guy who posted the McRib picture seen ’round the world, taking part in the whole manufacturing process from beginning to end.

Watch the video after the break and let us know if it sets your mind at ease.

This McDonald’s shaped like a lunchbox was a pop-up that appeared in Melbourne, Australia to promote some new additions to the menu including four new wraps and a new salad. Those who happen by the lunchbox location will be able to try Mini Steak Taster Wraps. It’ll be in Melbourne through Friday and then heading on to Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney.

McDonald’s continually receives questions from consumers and media about what goes into its food. In an attempt to reassure everyone that they’re actually serving something edible, McDonald’s has kicked off a campaign featuring former MythBuster Grant Imahara called “Our food. Your questions.” Consumers are encouraged to submit questions about the food, and Imahara will find the answers. He’s spent years busting myths, so he’s a great fit for this campaign.

So far, McDonald’s has run TV spots and a webisode featuring Imahara at a Cargill plant where McDonald’s gets beef. There’s no pink slime, and you can see what the beef looks like in the factory.

Why eat a Big Mac with bread buns when you can make a version with macaroni and cheese buns? Dude Foods was inspired by a reader to make a macaroni and cheese Big Mac so he got the sandwich from McDonald’s, got rid of the buns, and created this. While it makes the sandwich difficult to eat, I have to admit it does look like grade A comfort food.
