A Selling Eating newsletter? Why not?

All you had to do was ask: McDonald’s will serve unfoldable eggs.

On the topic of secret menus and knowing what to ask and where to ask it, we have just learned from Serious Eats that people-in-the-know walk up to the counter at McDonald’s and offer a sly sidewise look, maybe a wink, then the phrase, “I’d like my [breakfast sandwich of choice] made with A ROUND EGG.”

And they get real eggs with their [breakfast sandwich of choice]!

Look at the beautiful fold on that egglike substance. Which is apparently a #4.

I love it.

You can’t fold round eggs, people. Ray Kroc tried and you can’t.

So the question that remains: will my personal breakfast sandwich of choice (which is a Sausage Biscuit with Egg) be better with a round egg? Or will I emerge disappointed, and feeling sort of weird that I’ve grown to prefer the artificial version of life like the disappointingly evolved humans in Wall-E…?
