McDonald's Downsizing Double Cheeseburger

Say it isn't so! Where else are we going to get our overstuffed caloric intake? McDonald's announced it would remove the double cheeseburger from its dollar menu for a sandwich with less cheese. They're asking franchisees to replace it with the McDouble -- two patties with one slice of cheese. Yup, while it may be cheaper to produce (it saves $0.06 per sandwich, resulting in about $15k in more annual profits per store) it still sounds just as tasty and healthy. And we kid. [Crain's]
