McDonald's will soon begin posting calorie counts at its more than 14,000 U.S. locations, both on the menu board inside the fast-food restaurant as well as on the drive-through menu.
That means customers will soon be face to face with the fact that a large order of those crispy, salty, golden brown slivers of deep-fried goodness will pack on 500 calories.
Our sister blog, Money & Co., reports that the menu change comes as "diners increasingly demand more healthful dietary options and nutritional disclosures."
We buy the part about healthful dietary options. But do you really want to know the cold-hard facts about fast-food calories? Or do you just want to eat those French fries in peace? Take our poll, and tell us.
