Save The Skin!

I'm glad to hear McDonald's offers apple slices to its customers, and is even toying with the idea of using them as substitutes for French Fries in happy meals.

However, why in the world would they offer peeled apple slices? Removing the skin takes away every shred of fiber.

By providing peeled apple slices, McDonald's is denying consumers three important grams of fiber.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Because McDonald's wants a product that consumers can identify so that when they crave the pre-sliced and pre-peeled tasteless apple, they can drive around the corner and pick one up. Because McDonald's makes apples, not farmers, right?
