McDonald’s myths are easy to come by and we all know that fresh, organic food is not only healthier but tastes much nicer, right?

Wrong - at least according to Life Hunters’ YouTubers Sacha and Cedrique.

The pair visited the annual food convention in Houten in The Netherlands, where they asked unwitting gastronomic experts to taste samples of McDonald’s food and offer their opinions on this “new, organic alternative to fast food”.

“Delicious”, “fresh”, “tasty” and ”firm” are just some of the adjective used by the food critics in a video posted on YouTube.

“It’s nice and firm, it has a good bite,” says one.

Another adds: “It rolls around the tongue nicely; if it were wine I’d say it’s fine.”

The foodies were then cajoled into making a direct comparison with McDonald's. Asked how the “organic” fare shapes up in comparison to the fast food giant, one individual says: “It’s definitely a lot tastier than McDonald's, you can just tell this is a lot more pure.”

And another replies: “It tastes a lot better, and the fact that it’s organic is definitely a good thing. It’s just better for you. The taste is a lot richer.”

Sasha and Cedrique concluded: “If you tell people that something is organic, they’ll automatically believe it’s organic.”
