The McDonald's Item You Had No Idea You Could Buy
By MARGARET MCCORMICK
If you’re in need to host a picnic or backyard barbecue, you’ll need a lot of ice, be it through an ice maker or making your own ice cubes. Or, instead, you can head to McDonald's for the ice you need and might even be able to pick your ice up at the drive-thru window.
You might think you know everything there is to know about McDonald’s, but the news that they sell bags of ice is a bonafide revelation to many. Although bags of ice aren't on the menu at McDonald's, the well-informed people have known about McIce for a long time.
The ice sold at McDonald's is not crushed but cubed and if you want it crushed, you'll need to do that yourself. The price varies from one McDonald's location to another, but you can expect to pay between 99 cents and $1.50 per bag. Given how you can order it at the drive-thru, this seems like an excellent value.
