He warned not to get the pre-wrapped singles, but to get either an un-cut loaf or the package that’s “shingled” and not individually wrapped.

The former corporate chef also revealed that McDonald’s leaves their cheese out so that it becomes room temperature, and it makes a difference in the flavor.

“They are almost identical, there’s a little bit of difference in preservation,” he revealed.

Users flooded the comments with their thoughts on the tip coinciding with the video gaining traction on the platform.

“I love how you always make McDonald’s seem like the high-end delicacy,” one user replied.

Another said: “I was about to comment about the GV deluxe cheese! I’ve been using it for years!! Can’t beat it.”

This isn’t the first time Mike has gone viral, either. Just earlier in September, he explained why you shouldn’t order the Big Mac when visiting the restaurant.
