To charge or not to charge for extra sauce
The matter has sparked a debate on social media, with some customers defending McDonald’s for charging extra sauce packets to manage costs amid rising global prices.
Others, however, argue that it is unfair to charge customers for something previously provided free of charge.
McDonald’s has not yet commented on the incident, but it is worth noting that the policy of charging for extra sauce packets may vary among different branches and locations.
As Malaysia’s cost of living continues to rise, customers are looking for ways to manage their expenses and save money.
The incident also highlights the importance of companies’ transparent pricing policies and informing customers about changes.
