I grabbed the table from the site and dropped it into Excel. Added a column to calculate price/protein(g). The top 10 protein values: \$/gram. McDouble wins again.

McDouble 0.0455
Extra Crispy Chicken- Thigh 0.0500
Double Cheeseburger 0.0516
Beefy 5-Layer Burrito 0.0521
Crispy Chicken Caesar Wrap 0.0582
BK Breakfast Muffin Sandwich 0.0588
BK Single Stacker 0.0588
Original Chicken- Thigh 0.0588
Big Cheeseburger 0.0604
Grilled Chicken- Thigh 0.0625

That's pretty interesting. I just did a quick calculation on the price per gram of protein in a 1lb bucket of Whey protein.
http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/whey.html

I used the nutrition and price of that one and, assuming my math was correct, the price per gram of protein comes out to right around the same as the Mcdouble.

I thought the whey would be a lot cheaper.

Sned one of those over to me, I just had a grave tragedy. I hadn't been to this McD's in a while. I was shocked to discover when I got there that they had raised all the prices. McDoubles were 1.29, dbl cheeseburgers were 1.49, even the apple pies were more expensive. I understand that they're downtown in one of the largest cities in America, but they had always been a low-cost provider of meat anyway. But this is the sort of nonsense up with which I shall not put.

Also, because it's snowing all afternoon, I'm skipping the gym this evening.

The confluence of those factors meant I only had one McQuad.

Yep, that's what it comes out to. Whey is a convenience food and good when you want only additional protein. Otherwise, it's not a thrifty choice.

Still a dollar here... the manager got on the mic and "made sure" they heard me right. hahaha I got two McChicks and a regular box of the new chicken things.

Yeah, it's typically \$1 everywhere, but this is an exception because it's in an extremely expensive neighborhood. Bastards. All of them. Bastards.
