People claim McDonald's are using this sneaky technique to cheat you out of chips
An unusual conspiracy theory has sprung up on the commenting platform, Reddit, about how McDonald's serves its French fries. Supposed 'ex-employees' of the fast food chain have claimed that there is a little-known trick for giving fewer fries to customers.
According to the Reddit posters, the idea is simple, when a worker serves fries, they have to pinch the cardboard on the side while dispensing the chips inside. As a result, they feel that the container is full, when in reality it's not.
However, McDonald's have firmly disputed the claim and told the Mailonline: "'We believe that these claims are fictitious, there is no secret trick and we have very strict procedures to ensure that the portions are not under-filled".
