This won’t help your blood pressure, but you might want to know anyway.

The biggest margin items for fast food places like McD’s, BK, etc. are...fries and soft drinks. They are actually better off if you DON’T order other items, since they make the most off these two offerings. When you think how cheap potatoes and oil are (or filtered and carbonated municipal water and sugar) you can imagine the profit on a $1.76 order of fries or a $1.45 drink.

Soon as the traffic at the drive-thru slows up, that price WILL come down...
