I did find one customer who had noticed the calorie labels: Dick Nigon of Sterling, Va. He and his wife, Lea, had stopped by McDonaldâ€™s after seeing an exhibit at the Renwick Gallery. Dick had ordered for the couple, noticed the calorie labels and liked them.
â€œI like that you have the information before you order,â€ he told me, when I asked about the labels. â€œItâ€™s better than some kind of government health mandate in Obamacare.â€
I told him that the calorie labels were, in fact, a government health mandate in Obamacare.
â€œWell that changes things a bit,â€ he responded. â€œI thought this was more of a voluntary sort of thing. Now Iâ€™m not quite sure how I feel about it.â€
