There may be actual science behind why McDonald’s milkshakes are so satisfying. The straws may be designed to mimic the flow of breastfeeding when you drink the milkshake. McDonald’s are geniuses!
McDonald’s Japan founder wrote in his book, Den Fujita’s Business Strategies 2: Overwhelming Business Strategies, about the psychological game he plays on customers.
When humans drink something, the speed that produces the most delicious feeling is the speed at which babies nurse…McDonald’s straws are designed so that when used with a shake, the speed will be the same as that of an infant drinking breast milk.
This book, and information, is not new, Fujita died in 2004, but a few days ago a tweet went viral that had everyone’s minds blown. McDonald’s Japan is staying pretty quiet on this, too. Conspiracy!
So if you ever want to know what your baby likes so much that he stays latched for 12 straight hours just grab a McDonald’s shake.
