Fittingly Mad: McDonald's Fruit Salad

Fittingly Mad: McDonald's Fruit Salad

For most people, holidays equal traveling. It's inevitable that when you're on the road, you're going to get hungry.

When I was traveling over Christmas weekend, I wanted a snack and had heard about McDonald's fruit and walnut salad. I thought, "Well, that can't be too bad for me."


So I stopped in and ordered what I thought was going to be a pretty healthy snack.

Well I'll have to give McDonald's credit - the apples and grapes were actually real fruit. Plain old cut up Granny Smith's and red grapes, just the way nature intended.

But here's where Mickey D's screwed up big time. The apples come with a yogurt dip - but there was nothing yogurt about it. Might as well call it liquid frosting.

Annoyed, I moved on to the walnuts. They were in a little plastic packet and my eyes happened to glance at the back and there were a bunch of ingredients. This confused me because the last time I checked, the only ingredient in walnuts was walnuts.

Oh, but McDonald's thought they'd do me a favor and sugar-coat the goodness out of all those nuts. Thank you so much McDonald's, for ruining a potentially healthy snack.

Fit's Tips: I don't think I need to tell you to steer clear of that disappointing "salad." Instead, if you're going to be traveling this holiday, plan ahead. Pack your own snacks and meals in a little cooler, so you won't have to resort to frosting flavored yogurt.
