He was the main or only shareholder in McDonald's South Africa. Not sure about Burger King, but it doesn't look like it.

Why oh why would you befoul your body by stuffing buggar king into it?
Or even McGonads?

In a country with amazing meat, what has gone wrong with your life to visit such a place?
If you have a death wish, rather buy a Jabi..

:lol: :lol: This bring back sweet memories. We used to stuff 20-30 Chappies in our mouths at once to have enough reading material for a couple of minutes. I even won a Chappies competition back then and the price was a shoe box full of Chappies. :D Must start chewing Chappies again!

There I agree. Especially in the drier areas like the Karoo for lamb and Kalahari/Nam for beef =P~ . Free range of course.

Interestingly enough their patties are made in SA (Burger King)

Just for the record I never eat BK or McD, maybe once every 2 years...

Taking a wild guess, something to do with injection molding equipment used to make the honey comb thing? Do you know?

Don't think its the molding thing. After all they used to be made in SA> My guess applies to all the products mentioned in this thread that are now foreign made.

too expensive to have made in SA or is it also a casualty from that Cadbury halaal saga? It originated from the US.
