    Very random, but does anyone drink this? I hear MickeyD's has been selling this in the South for awhile now but I guess they just decided L.A. people might enjoy it too...lol

    I was driving and thirsty and saw the sign, so for $1 I got a ginormous cup of sweet tea. It was really really really good! It is real brewed tea (not powder mix) with sugar and lemon. I got another one from a different McDonald's a few days later and it was not so good. It kind of tasted like it was made in a dirty coffee pot....eww

    I googled it and it seems there are very strong opinions on the stuff - some people saying it's nasty and too sweet, some saying it's delicious and tastes like "real" southern sweet tea, and some saying it tastes different at different McDonald's.

    Who's tried it?

        I live in FL and I love McDonald's sweet tea, actually that is the only thing I will get from there. I miss it when I am up north, where they look at you funny if you ask for sweet tea.

          Oh wow, I haven't seen it yet in Seattle, but I have to say I am a BIG fan of the Arizona Sweet Tea which you can get in huge-o-mungous jugs on sale at Walgreens for like $2.50. No clue if that is close to the real deal either, but it sure is good!
          Now I'm on the lookout for McD's version! Ooh, ICE!

            haha..the fries are good!

            The last two times I went it was only for the tea...the drive through people were like "that's all?". I'm going back to the spot that had the good tea. It's been really hot here and it is so refreshing and has lots of ice! And 32 ounces for $1!

              OMG what I wouldn't do for a McD's french fry right now. I would give up BDW for the rest of the work day (1 and a half hours!) for just one lovely golden fried frenchie from McDonalds. AHHHHHHHHH. YUM!

                  I too am a Mickey D fry lover! Yummy!

                  I haven't had their sweet tea...but have you had their iced coffee? It is so good and way cheaper than Starbucks. I was shocked!
