Millennials mock Inc article about favourite ingredient

  • The storm began after Inc tweeted a story about a kale burger at McDonald’s

If there’s one thing millennials love more than avocados, it’s being sassy on Twitter.

So when a news article claimed that a new McDonald’s burger contained their ‘favourite ingredient,’ they came up with some hilarious alternatives for what that ingredient could be.

The Twitter storm began after Inc tweeted out its article with the headline: ‘McDonald’s Just Rolled Out Burgers With Millennials’ Favorite Ingredient’.

Though the magazine was referring to kale, young Twitter users had several other suggestions for what their favourite ingredient might be: including student loan debt forgiveness and a front-facing camera.

Several millennials also criticised the article for naming kale as their so-called ‘favourite ingredient’ rather than avocado.

But the majority took the opportunity to mock Inc with hilariously absurd suggestions for what they would like most in a burger.

One questioned how you could make a ‘front facing camera delicious,’ while another mused what ‘communism’ tasted like.

Several said that ‘universal healthcare’ was an unusual topping for a burger, and one joked that they didn’t know you could eat ‘being content with yourself and not being emotionally exhausted in an age of social media’.

Others merely couldn’t believe that Inc was alleging kale to be their favourite ingredient as opposed to avocado.

Many accused McDonald’s of being at least 18 months behind food trends, though one asserted it was more like five to 10 years since kale had been considered an ‘It’ food.

The Twitter furore erupted after Inc reported on McDonald’s trialling a new burger, the Signature Sriracha Sandwich, that features baby kale, which is available in the US. 

Though the article predicted millennials would get excited about the new addition to the fast food menu, in fact they only got enthused about mocking it.
