McDonalds Hiked The Price Of A Soft Serve To 50 Cents And Hoped You Wouldn't Notice

Super sized prices more like!

The world's biggest food chain has nearly doubled the price of some of your favourite food items in a swift, cynical kick in the guts.

The Australian stores have lifted the cheapest (and arguably best) soft serve cone around from 30 cents to.... 50 CENTS!

That's a price increase of 60%. Nearly double the price. WTF.

The most deflating news you'll hear all day: McDonald's 30c cones are now 50c

A McDonalds customer service representative told BuzzFeed it was part of a routine price rotation and other items like frozen Cokes and choc waffle cones would be cheaper.

She also told BuzzFeed, small fries would rise from $1 to between $1.80 and $2.10.

And apple pies would also be going up.

Apparently we now live in a world where shrapnel isn’t good enough to purchase some of the great delights in life.
