Do you know Mcdonalds saves 20 cents now by selling a Mcdouble instead of a double cheeseburger since they made the change on their dollar value menu? They came up with the idea after they were boycotted in 2007 to make up the money they lost during the boycott. I was in Mcdonalds the other day and asked a worker what was the difference between a Mcdouble and a double cheeseburger and he said a piece of cheese. you only get one slice on a Mcdouble VS 2 slices on a double cheeseburger. The price different between a Mcdouble and a double cheeseburger is 20 cents where the double cheese burger is of course 20 cents more. But according to Mcdonalds, they will save over 4 million a year by making this change. The change was taking the double cheeseburger off of the dollar menu and replacing it with something called a Mcdouble, having only one piece of cheese.
