According to the official McDonald’s website, the orange juice dispensed by the giant bag comes from manufacturers at the Coca-Cola-owned company Minute Maid. McDonald’s first partnered with Coca-Cola, which acquired the company in 1960, all the way back in 1955 when the first McDonald’s franchise opened in Des Plaines, Illinois.
Given that consumers are generally used to seeing orange juice presented in plastic bottles or refillable cups, many viewers of the TikTok expressed concerns regarding the aesthetic of the industrial-sized bags of Minute Maid OJ, leaving one commenter to express, “I will never buy OJ from there again.” Others were far more understanding, with some comments stating, “Still good. Just bc it’s in a bag doesn’t make it bad. My gosh people. It’s a fast food restaurant it’s to make things faster and easier.” and “Yeah I was aware y’all weren’t juicing oranges in store.”
