** Their most popular menu item for a long time has been the Filet-O-Fish sandwich, largely due to the fact that observant Catholics in the United States couldn't, at the time of the sandwich's introduction, eat meat on Fridays, and still can't during Lenten Fridays. It's little wonder that McDonald's advertises the daylights out of the Filet-O-Fish at locations near Catholic churches during Lent. The [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=filet-o-fish number one definition]] for the Filet-O-Fish on ''Website/UrbanDictionary'' even refers to it as "the Catholic Big Mac".[[note]]NSFW warning -- the ''second'' definition, in true ''Urban Dictionary'' fashion, describes a made-up sex act.[[/note]] It's also become popular among Muslims, due to the fact that the sandwich's ingredients just so happened to meet halal guidelines.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Or [[GoneHorriblyRight right]] to some, depending on what happens and which side you're on. Some of their advertisement and promotions have ended up backfiring in their face over the years. Quite possibly the most (in)famous one was their promotion for the Olympics in TheEighties. To wit, in celebration of it, they ran a promotion for every game won by the U.S.A., they would give away free food or the chance to win a ton of money in the process. To make sure they wouldn't go bankrupt, they mostly offered it for events Russia usually sweeps up in... however, they did all this ''before Russia announced they weren't going to compete in the Olympics that year''. The end result was team U.S.A. sweeping most of the events Russia usually wins, and [=McDonalds=] losing millions of dollars in the process.

** McDonald's introduced mozarella sticks in November 2015, likely to compete with Arby's, the only other notable fast food chain on the market to sell mozarella sticks. In January 2016, the company recieved customer complaints due to the cheese sticks supposedly missing mozarella, the key ingridient. In not a long matter of time, the company was sued for allegations over the cheese sticks containing "fake" mozarella. The item was quickly discontinued, thus being a limited time offer.
