Nutritional Information on McDonald's Iced Coffees

  • July 15, 2007

My girlfriend asked me to help her track down some nutritional information on McDonald's suspicously tasty iced coffees. I found nothing but dead ends on their website, which was [somewhat horrid (http://www.mcdonalds.com/). It wasn't listed on their nutritional information page and I even found a site that had an actual response from McDonald's regarding this lack of information. However, after some digging I found some intriguing broken javascript on Mcdonald's website and after some trial and error, I managed to retrieve the actual nutritional information:

  Total: 180 8 5 0 30 60 26 0 1
  % Daily Value**: - 12 25 - 11 3 9 0 -

Here's a link for reference: http://app.mcdonalds.com/bagamcmealprocess=item&itemID=1216

This begs the question - why post this on my website? My motivation is simple. It's a little experiment to see if I can get this page to come up when people are searching for this information, and how long it will take McDonald's to notice and do something about it.

Hey McDonald's...when you read this, how's about making your website actually useful for people who are looking for information regarding your products.
