As anyone who’s ever pretended to be a car to get a late night McFlurry will know, drive-thrus are a no-go zone for pedestrians. But thanks to some innovative people at McDonald's that trend could soon be a thing of the past.
A Welsh branch of the fast food giant has become the first McDonald's to trial a “walk-thru” lane for weekend party goers.
According to The Sun, the restaurant in Llandudno, North Wales now opens a pedestrian lane between the hours of 2.30 and 4am to help those feeling the effects of the night get their fast food fix.
A spokesperson for Mickey Ds told the paper that the “walk-thru” was set up by the local restaurant manager to help those attending the area’s recently re-opened nightclub go home happy.
Oh, what a time to be alive!
Seriously, what is it about alcohol that makes us crave a Big Mac or giant bowl of salty chips as soon as we have taken a sip! It does nothing for our healthy eating – excluding the drink of course!
Here are three ways to make you stop craving those extra calories:
Have a good meal before you go out
We’re talking a proper, hearty dinner, potatoes and all. Not only will it soak up the alcohol, it will also fill you up enough to not crave that chipper after.
Drink plenty of water
We definitely promote sensible drinking here at HQ! Not only will water help you to keep your senses, it also helps to prevent dehydration caused by the alcohol which causes you to think you’re hungry.
Simply drinking less than you normally would will help keep those cravings away. And leaving early is not nerdy… we promise!
