MCDONALD'S fans have been left fuming after noticing the fast food giant has apparently introduced a new charge.
Customers have been taking to TikTok in droves to complain after noticing signs that have been popping up throughout the eateries and drive-thru.
Samantha Butler's video showed a McDonald's employee sticking one of the "Dips from 10p" signs on a self-service machine inside a restaurant.
"McDonald’s charging 10p for dips now," she captioned her video.
"This is the beginning of the end of the world," one person commented on the clip.
While another added: "PARDON???! They used to be free, what happened?"

As another wrote: "well… when people want 8 sauces for one ten piece nugget, the company got to do something."
