I know what you guys are thinking, no way! Well, the sad truth is somehow Mcdonalds can sell you 2 cheeseburgers and a large pop for $3. But when you go to the grocery store to buy a pound of beef, and buns and ketchup, pickles, mustard and pop it's going to cost you at least $15+. Poor people are the reason why Mcdonalds is so popular, because of its at least 50%+ cheaper to go to Mcdonalds to eat then going to buy the food at the grocery store. How is this even possible? So my question of the hour is why is eating off the $1 menu at Mcdonalds is cheaper than the grocery store?
