‘So…it’s pretty much just an iced caramel latte but they just add whipped cream and charge you extra! A scam,” one angry customer commented.

Similar feelings of dissatisfaction were repeated everywhere.

“Don’t lie…you never mix the drink,” one woman commented.

“I got ripped off…Never had chocolate on it,” said another.

‘The Iced Coffee Frappes are so much better! I got one and was so disappointed.

However, there was equal enthusiasm for the sweet drink.

“When I get my Ps, I come to the drive-in every day,” one man commented.

Another was ready to commit to it: ‘That’s it, this is my new signature drink’.

But this isn’t the first time McDonald’s employees have used social media to wow customers.

A former McDonald’s employee has revealed three secrets she learned during her years working at the restaurant, including which items you can get for free.

Batoul, who runs a page showcasing Sydney’s halal cuisine, worked for the restaurant when she was a teenager.

In her viral TikTok video, the young woman said you can still get a free “jar of pickles” from the fast food giant.

“We used to have pregnant women coming in all the time for them,” she said while eating a McDonald’s meal.

The young woman also revealed that human error is usually the cause of the “breakdowns” of the serving machine.

“It’s usually because someone put shake mix on the side of the ice cream,” she said.

And admitted some staff might serve whole milk instead of skimmed milk at the drive-thru, hoping customers won’t notice.

His revelations caused a stir among his followers, especially pickle lovers.

‘So instead of asking for extra pickles and getting two, should I just ask for a cup? Great, thank you!’ said a woman.

“You really shouldn’t have told me about the free pickles, I’m on my way now,” one woman laughed.

Other former workers agreed with her, especially with the ice cream maker.

“If it wasn’t shake mix on the ice cream side, someone accidentally put it in to clean it up in the middle of serving,” one woman said.

“Half the time, nights, I’d say the machine wasn’t working because I didn’t want to dirty it again,” said a former staff member.

The popular video has been viewed over 650,000 times.
