Personally, I do not like anything from McD's. I do not care if they make their own coffees these days. I am sure they also add tons of aspartame laden sweeteners too. Just another way to dumb us down and turn us into zombies. Do you know about aspartame and the dangers of it? If not, here are some articles on what it does to your brain. http://www.mercola.com/article/aspartame/dangers.htm http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-566922170441334340&ei=U_FoSfL0C6S2qAORi5XbAQ&q=aspartame

I like the coffee and cappaccino that comes from Speedway gas stations. I think they taste better than Starbucks and McDonalds. They are also cheaper and if you have a speedy rewards card you earn points toward different things. Also, after the purchase of 6 drinks, you get a free one.

I like McD's coffee more than Starbucks. First is because it's cheaper but more of I do not prefer the too bitter taste of coffee on Starbucks. The coffee is way too thick and bitter compared to McD's coffee that I drink when we go there on lazy mornings.

I didn't know there were dangers linked to aspartame, I just know I didn't like it from jump. Don't use enough, its like not using anything at all, use too much, and your drink is bitter. I would rather have regular sugar, but if I couldn't have that, I would use Splenda or a similar sweetener without aspartame. However, these kinda sweeteners cause their own problems. These lower the strength of the immune system, so they aren't too good either. I say, unless your health is affected by it dramatically, use sugar.

I'm not sure they put Aspertame in it. Anyway, I hate Starbucks coffee, and I love Mcdonald's coffee. It has nothing to do with cost. Good tasting coffee is good tasting coffee and I hate starbucks.

If it comes to specialty coffees, I prefer Starbucks or Panera bread. But regular coffee from Starbucks is too sour for me and McD's is good considering that I don't use artificial sweeteners.
