The fruit and yogurt parfait is probably my favorite thing to ever come out of McDonald's. For a while, it was the cheapest food item in the food court of the mall I worked at too.

I love McD's egg mcmuffin so much. At home I like to have pancakes or waffles with fruit. Or eggs. Or oatmeal.

I'm pretty sure the latte has to have protein in it. Milk has protein, and that's the basis of the latte.

If I go to Dunkies I just got a plain old english muffin, no need for the egg and cheese.

I'd rather eat at Dunkies and consume more calories than go to either of those other places. Ick.
