Investigative McDonald's French Fry Report Reveals Portion Size Deficit

Amounts measured down to the gram

Everybody loves McDonald's french fries, right? So what better topic for some investigative reporting than whether portion sizes are living up to their advertised amounts in Japan. 

 

RocketNews24 bought 10 packs of L and M size fries to see whether peoples' nagging feelings that they aren't getting enough are valid or if they just wish there were more, regardless. There is video:

 

Now for the startling results...

 

The official serving amounts:

L - 170 grams

M - 135 grams

S - 74 grams

 

Results of measuring the fries held in each of the 20 packages:

-  149 / 155 / 155 / 157 / 158 / 161 / 164 / 166 / 167 / 169 grams
M  111 / 124 / 125 / 126 / 127 / 134 / 135 / 136 / 139 / 141 grams

 

Average grams per package:

L - 160 

M - 135 

 

Biggest discrepancy: 

L - 19 grams fewer

M - 24 grams fewer

 

None of the L size made it all the way to the official serving amount, and therefore…therefore! We are surprised? Not surprised? Outraged? How do you feel about this revelation?
