Breakfast Roundup: The fast-food restriction that can lead to depression; a child runs away from home (baby sister in tow) after being told no candy for breakfast; and the breakfast food that deserves one more mention

LOS ANGELES , March 10, 2024 () –

The latest in what's going on in the world of breakfast:

Can a restriction on Sausage McGriddles lead to depression? One non-medical official says yes!

Any reputable medical professional will tell you there are countless reasons why people can become depressed. But one TikToker has a theory that, if true, would baffle science:

It's because Sausage McGriddles are no longer on McDonald's all-day breakfast menu.

Yes, that's why people are currently depressed, according to @yellz1, who complained to her 1.2 million followers in a recent video that McDonald's decision to now only offer the Sausage McGriddle during breakfast hours (not to mention doubling the price of the menu item to $4) has led to a rise in depresssion among the people of Earth.

Now: This Tik Toker isn't a medical professional by any means, but more than 2 million people have viewed this video and heard this theory. Could something become true if enough people believe it?

Maybe McDonald's should offer the Sausage McGriddle all day long, just to be safe.

A child's journey for a home that serves candy for breakfast

Any parent will tell you that it's not uncommon for a child to throw a tantrum when told that he or she can't have candy for breakfast. But one child recently took things a step further by packing up his stuff (including his baby sister) and running away from home...well, somewhat.

One TikTok user who goes by the username Yana_Mom_ shared a clip of her son leaving the house after she refused to let him have candy for breakfast.

In the video, the mom zooms her phone's camera through a window, focusing in on her son walking on the edge of the road while pushing along a black stroller with his baby sister inside with one hand and pulling a silver suitcase with the other. 

The child, who appeared to be dressed for winter weather, wearing a black coat with a blue beanie, had even brought his stuffed polar bear with him, which he placed on top of the luggage. His baby sister was also dressed for winter weather and wrapped in a blanket.

And what was Inside his luggage, you ask?

A Monopoly doll, Nintendo Switch, two apple juice boxes, a pair of socks and a single diaper for his baby sister.

In other words: The essentials.

THIN MINTS PANCAKES!! (clap clap clap clap clap)

Yes, we already mentioned it last week, so technically it's old news.

But c'mon: Surely this current IHOP menu item deserves one more mention:

Thin. Mints. Pancakes.

What else need be said?
