Extra sauce also need to pay?

Seems like some companies are asking customers to pay additional cost for, and the explanation "reduce wastage", "save earth" etc...

Sometimes makes me wonder, if these charges really do what they said to do or.... :moneyflies: :?

:siam:

US, Aust. If you want any ketchup or condiments, gotta pay something like 20cents per pack. Not just in Macs, KFC, Burger King oso.

Sauce makes fast food even more unhealthy.


Anyway, read on CNA that

6 piece gets up to 2 pack free, 3rd chargeable
9 piece gets 3 packs
20 piece gets 4 packs ...... Er ... This doesn't seem logical. Shouldn't it be 6 or even 7 packs?

Yalor
6 piece 2 pack mean 3 pieces per packet,
9 piece 3 pack also mean 3 pieces per packet,
20 piece why only 4 pack? Mean 5 pieces per packet leh. Should be 6 pack at least.

You can buy 2 of the 9 pieces nuggets set to get 6 packs of sauce, but you pay more for this combination. If you want to pay less by buying a 20 piece set, then you get fewer packs of sauce :rotflmao:

:siam:


The explanation is valid ONLY if they reduce the price of the food, say, $4 to $3.85, and charge for the sauce at $0.20

Else, whatever they say is just BS.

But, to be fair, if there is few packets free, and only charge for the nth packets onwards.. I feel it is quite ok lah..

As they say.. reduce wastage..
