Our local McDonalds must mess it up.  It's not worth trying here.  Bandana's BBQ here in town has a sweet tea that passes the taste buds of my Texas friends, but for now I'm passing on the McDonald's version.

I tried McD's sweet tea, and nope, not impressed.  Too much sugar, not enough flavor.  Like most crap designed for the masses.

Apologies to those southerners if Mcd's got the formula close and that is what it is supposed to be, but I doubt it.

Here it tastes to me like they are trying to stir it in and not cook it in.  It makes a big difference.  It also taste to me like they are using a poor quality tea.

They may just not sell enough tea. If you let tea sit too long without keeping it cold it starts to taste nasty, sweet or unsweet. Brewed tea really should be refrigerated if you don't go through fast. I can always tell when yankees let their tea sit too long because it tastes like it.

I've heard sweet iced tea called the table wine of the south. (I grew up in Memphis, where it's hot and flat and cotton is still king.)

I like Tarter Sauce with my Fish (Halibut) & Chips, don't ruin the fish with it but it's better than Catsup on the fries.

My own tartar sauce is great on the fish but has to be mixed w/catsup for the fries, sour cream mixed w/catsup is good for fries too!! grin  Jody

My Mom always did fries and gravy - it was her favorite side dish, a good dark gravy, thick too and a nice pile of fries.

I think their tea is good.  I went in the other day to grab a $1 tea and they were making large batches right there.  (doing it correctly by adding sugar to the warm tea).  Of course, for a $1 I can make a huge batch at home.

Here, sweet tea is the only way to go.  Especially when enjoying a chicken biscuit from Chick-fil-A.

Here in the hills, its ice tea or sweet ice tea....with real sugar, thank you!  None of that wussy Sweet'n'Low or Splenda!  I have to order it in the restuarants as the chlorinated town water is not palatable and can almost be masked by the ice tea!  Not quite, but almost!  Nothing better than sweet ice tea from a mountain spring, though!

When I lived in Pa, we called it ice tea (not iced), but we drank it sweetened because a friend from Fl taught us how to make it.  I live in Ga now, and when I order ice tea in a restaurant, the waitress lookes at me funny and askes if I want sweet tea.  Also, the sweetened tee that I drank in Pa would be concidered unsweet compared to the tea here.

I've tried their sweettea . I like it . Here in South Central Kentucky everyone drinks sweettea .
Here is something else that may seem weird to people not from here , All softdrinks are called cokes
Pepsie is called coke , 7 Up is called coke etc.
(example) I'm going to the corner store to get a coke .  Wink

I know what you are talking about we do the same around here. alot of times we will say something like " hey get me a coke" and the reply is "what kind" to that they will say "Dr Pepper or pepsi or diet coke" its crazy but true
