An ex-McDonald’s employee has shared secrets of the fast-food chain on TikTok, including revealing that the milkshake machine probably isn’t broken…

Taking to TikTok, Dessy Joseph has shared tricks of the trade after working at McDonald’s over the years. 

She gives people hints on how to get the best out of your experience at McDonald’s, including how to get fresher food.

For instance, if you make customisations to your order like ‘added cheese’, your burger will be made fresh so they can add an additional slice.

Dessy has over 560,000 followers on TikTok and has now shared 23 videos of tricks for Maccies lovers.

Another includes avoiding the ‘lunch hour rush’ where items tend to be pre-made for fresher food. She said: “During the lunch rush we would make a certain amount of food that were popular items and leave them on the belt – it was heated so you couldn’t really tell if your food had been left on the belt.

“Which is where customisations come in, to make sure you don’t get food that’s been sitting on the belt.”

She also confirmed that the legendary ‘secret menu’ is actually real. Dessy explains you can order ‘an Oreo McFlurry with caramel sauce’ or a ‘neapolitan shake’ which will include chocolate, strawberry and caramel in one cup.

Lol sorry I had McDonald’s on the brain when I filmed this 😂 #7eleven #secrets #jodessy #7elevenhack

And it turns out, the milkshake machine probably isn’t actually broken.

Dessy revealed that colleagues often lie about the machine being broken to avoid replacing the massive and heavy bag of shake mix.

She even said that in the McDonald’s store she worked in the machine wouldn’t be cleaned very often, and would frequently have bugs inside. 

She claimed: “Dead flies and dirt collect at the top of the ice cream machine, so if you slide the top off without wiping it first, all those little buggies go in the ice cream mix.”

The Mirror also shared some secret menu items shared by another ex McDonald’s employee. 

They include ‘Angus Fries’ which are unsalted fries with Angus beef seasoning from the grill. There’s also ‘Strawberry Sprite’ which mixes Sprite post-mix with four squirts of Strawberry Thickshake Syrup.

You could also get ‘Mega MAC’ which builds a big Mac with quarter pounder meat and buns and an extra slice of cheese.

And there’s even ‘McMuffin Pizzas’ using grilled muffin halves with sauce, cheese and ‘toppings’. 

BRB going to try and get something from the secret Maccies menu…

Greggs worker fired after exposing the ‘mountains of food that gets wasted every day’

The worker filmed several bin bags of food being thrown away at the end of her shift

A Greggs worker was fired after she exposed the ‘mountain’ of food the bakery chain allegedly wastes on a daily basis. 

Nicole Iwalowo had been working in a Romford branch in London for a month when she became aware of the massive amount of food going to waste at the end of each day.

Feeling guilty at seeing food go in the bin every day, Nicole decided to expose the bakery by filming the leftover produce, which included freshly made sandwiches and sealed packages of bakery goods like doughnuts and yum yums, and posting it onto TikTok.

Her video, shared back in November, shows six bin bags full of food being loaded up on a metal cage, which Nicole claims was later collected by bin men.

Nicole pointed out in the video that ‘there’s people starving around the world and all of this is going to waste’, noting that ‘this happens everyday around the world with the billions of food stores’.

Her TikTok post was quick to garner thousands of views and comments, with many slamming Greggs for the blatant hypocrisy surrounding its official policy, which states that it ‘hates food waste’ and that ‘donating unsold food to those in need is our priority’.

Greggs also claims that ‘all unsold food is 100% diverted from landfill’.

One viewer commented: “What’s frustrating is there are actual Apps around now exactly for this, to take end of day food for ppl [sic] in need. Its infuriating and why we should boycott these businesses until they change. Thank you for putting your job on the line to show this.”

@lord.nicc566

Watch me get fired for this 😵‍💫😂 #foryourpage #foodwaste

Another person who claims to have also worked for the bakery chain wrote: “I used to work at Greggs too and can back this up. and we aren’t allowed to give it to the homeless either.”

A spokesperson for Greggs has since addressed the video, saying in a statement: “We have a number of initiatives in place to help reduce food waste across our shops including the redistribution of unsold food to community groups and charities.

“We are continually working to increase the amount of unsold food given away to those most in need and remain committed to putting an end to food waste.”

In the days following the posting of the video, Nicole confirmed that she had been fired and was left looking for work in the run up to Christmas.

A safety alert has been issued over a batch of children’s car seats containing ‘potentially defective’ parts.

The notice from Cosatto reads: “We have identified a potential safety concern relating to the buckle used in the production of a small batch of car seats manufactured between September 2019 and June 2020.

“Unfortunately, the manufacture of some of the buckles did not reach the exacting standards set by our quality and safety protocol and contain components that can potentially become defective.

Cosatto

“We are truly sorry that this has happened. We are a values-driven, family business who want to do the right thing and have taken this action to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children of valued customers like you.”

It has also been revealed that any customer with one of the multi-group car seats (Groups 0+/1/2/3) for children from birth up to 36kg (approximately twelve years old) should stop using them immediately and contact Cosatto.

The company added that only those with batch numbers between 37/2019 and 24/2020 are affected, noting that all other car seats from later batches are safe to use.

Parents have been encouraged to immediately check the batch numbers on their car seats – all of which can be found on a sticker on the right-hand side at the rear.
