People Are Pissed Because Their McDonald's Mozzarella Sticks Are Missing A Key Ingredient

These poor cheese-less people.

Last year, cheese lovers rejoiced when McDonald's announced it would begin selling mozzarella sticks for just $1.

And people eagerly raced out to get their hands on the delicious fried cheese.

Mmmm, cheese, the world thought.

But recently, social media users have been reporting a very troubling development when they have tried the sticks out for themselves.

The sticks seem to be missing a pretty important ingredient.

@McDonalds no cheese in the mozzarella sticks thanks!

Um, where's the cheese?

Yoo @McDonalds really just gave me 4 mozzarella sticks with no cheese in any of them 😂😭

What a disappointment.

Thank you for the three mozzarella sticks with no cheese @McDonalds

"Thanks for nothing @McDonalds," one man fumed.

Thanks for nothing @McDonalds Tried your "mozzarella sticks". Too bad there was no cheese in any of them. 😤

This problem is apparently not new. People have been tweeting about their cheese-less sticks since September.

@McDonalds how about these disappointing mozzarella sticks? No cheese what so ever. So disappointed when i got home.

And it is not an isolated incident. A search for "mozzarella sticks no cheese" on Twitter brings up many results, with the term growing in popularity around the end of last year.

Most of the people are referencing McDonald's, though a few earlier posts also call out TGI Fridays and Sonic.

Lunches across America have been ruined!

When you get mozzarella sticks but there is no cheese in them… 😞 @McDonalds #lunchruined

Even people in the U.K. say they have been affected.

@McDonaldsUK no cheese in my mozzarella sticks... What is this madness?

This is just tragic.

Craving mozzarella sticks. Excited that @McDonalds has them! Just to get home to have hollow breading :( #sad

McDonald's said in a statement to BuzzFeed News it was sorry for the "low volume" of customers who were sold cheese-less sticks.

My girl got mozzarella sticks from McDonald's and they gave her them with no cheese 😂😂😂😂 @McDonalds y'all slacking

"In these instances, we believe the cheese melted out during the baking process in our kitchens and shouldn't have been served," spokeswoman Lisa McComb said. "We apologize to any customers who may have been affected. We are working to fix this in our restaurants."

Let's keep these poor people in our prayers.

Really @McDonalds there is no cheese in my mozzarella sticks


BuzzFeed News has investigated this cheese mystery by getting some of our own mozzarella sticks. Purely for investigative purposes, of course. Here's what they looked like:

I just went to the McDonald's around the corner to find out if their mozzarella sticks contained cheese. Behold:
