I have just returned from another jolly to mainland Europe .
Folks who know me will appreciate that I like McDonalds Mcflurry – an ice-cream dessert (priced at 99P)
Can anybody please explain how a shot of finest (black, not opaque) espresso topped with a good sized ” dob” of ice-cream costs just 1€? In Europe.
This delicacy is known as an helado e café. One Euro, 70p roughly – how does a McFlurry cost more? Does a shot of espresso in Europe cost 29p? No, we’re being ripped off here in Britain: overcharge for everything, forget “please” and “thank you” and dispense with customer service.
My local golden arches can’t even do me an espresso, never mind a coffee with a dob on top…when challenged to come up with a price, they reached nearly £3.00
I would use the phrase “wake up and smell the coffee”, but the UK’s McCoffee is probably pants too.
