The first round wraps up with a Food Trivia question about a highly coveted McDonald’s sauce originally released in 1998 to promote the Disney animated film, Mulan. If you’re still hungry to learn more, be sure to check out episode #37 of the podcast for a theme round of Fast Food Trivia!
Today’s Bonus Question is a follow-up to the Food question from the first round. The Team is asked to guess how many seconds the average McDonald’s drive-through transaction takes. One member of the Team points out that eagle-eyed visitors may even be able to spot a timer inside the drive-through window, which they use as their baseline for formulating a guess. Do you think they’re close enough to earn a point? Listen in and see if you agree with their logic!
