When news broke that McDonald's would be rolling out mozzarella sticks as a nationwide menu item, we were pretty excited. While the menu addition sounded delicious, it turns out, they might be a major letdown.
The famous fast food chain has been facing a ton of criticism over the measly amount of actual mozzarella cheese in the mozzarrella sticks. One California customer is so upset, in fact, that he's suing McDonald's — for $5 million! According to Law360, the man has filed a class action lawsuit against the company for false advertising and damages. He is also alleging that McDonald's added starch to the sticks, instead of real cheese, as its advertising had suggested.
While not all unhappy McDonald's patrons are taking such extreme measures, many of them are sharing photos of the $1 menu item to prove that it just doesn't live up to the hype.
