LOOK – we love a cheeky McDonald’s as much as the next person. Arguably, MORE.
But there’s nothing worse than unpacking what you thought was a fresh Big Mac only to find it was sitting out the back a while – i.e. freezing cold and bone dry.

Sound familiar? Then you might just want to make a note of this employee’s top tip.
He claimed: “In the UK, we have 2 periods which are known as Gapbuster Times.
“Basically between 12-2 and 5pm-7pm workers have to be extra careful because that is when gapbusters (mystery shoppers), who are paid, visit McDonald’s restaurants and rate their experience.”

He added: “If you ask for a receipt in that time everyone will be immediately alert that you could be a potential gapbuster.
“They’ll make sure to serve you the freshest burger and fries and give you priority over everyone else!”
What’s more, this TikToker – who also used to work in McDonald’s – said customers should make one single tweak to a staple menu item to ensure it’s freshly made.
He revealed: “I used to work at McDonald’s and I picked this tip up when I was a kid working there.
“If you want your sandwich or your fries, anything you want, made fresh, make sure to add something special to it – whether it’s no pickles, no onions, light ketchup, no salt on the fries. They have to make it fresh.
“No one wants an old sandwich that has been sitting there for a while, so if you order something special, they have to make it fresh.”
