10 Fast Food Chains That Surprisingly Aren’t In NYC Yet

10 Fast Food Chains That Surprisingly Aren't In NYC Yet

I think of New York City as the neutron star of America; a tiny island, densely crammed with just about everything you could dream of. That’s why it’s so strange that there are still a number of fast food chains that haven’t made it onto the NYC scene. Some of them you’ve heard of, some you haven’t, but all of them are welcome to the east coast as far as I’m concerned. More »

In The Great Fast Food Race, Chick-Fil-A Gets High Marks...McDonald's Not So Much

The results of Consumer Reports’ latest fast food survey are in, and there are some surprising winners, as well as some very expected losers. In the categories of Best Service, Best Chicken, and Cleanest, Chick-Fil-A tops the charts. Chick-Fil-Friggin-A.

Doctors Want Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Canceled, America Probably Disagrees

Doctors Want Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Canceled, America Probably Disagrees

The Fourth of July means a lot of things to America. On that day in 1776, we adopted the Declaration of Independence, establishing our sovereignty from the British Empire. On that day every year, loved ones can spend the day off together to watch brilliant colors explode in the sky. And on that day, every year, a select few Americans gather on Coney Island to demonstrate what America is possibly best known for: how much we can digest in a single sitting. But if it were up to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, then Nathan’s Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest would no longer be a thing. More »

This Fake McDonald’s Commercial Is The Most Honest Ad Ever

This Fake McDonald's Commercial Is The Most Honest Ad Ever

Fast food commercials are to food as magazine covers are to women; nothing looks that perfect in real life. We all know McDonald’s ads are notorious for making value meals look like something you’d actually want to eat, instead of the limp patty you find at the bottom of a grease-stained paper bag. But this spoof commercial takes honest advertising to a whole, disgusting new level, by listing the actual ingredients found in Chicken McNuggets. More »

One woman recently found the next best thing in her Sonic order: a bag of weed. The wackiest part? She actually complained about it! Hasn’t she read our blogs?!

When It Comes To Your Food Portion Size, Less Really Is More

When It Comes To Your Food Portion Size, Less Really Is More

A new study has come out that shows the Greeks were onto something when they said “Everything in moderation.” At least when it comes to your portion size. Research has demonstrated that people who ate a smaller amount of food enjoyed their meal more than people who ate a larger portion. Too bad this research wasn’t out when former Mayor Bloomberg was declaring war on big sodas. More »

Kid Finds A Towel Inside His KFC Chicken, Making Their Food More Inedible Than Ever

A U.K. child bit off a more disgusting bite than he could chew when his mum brought home a meal from the local KFC. Upon biting something inedible, Krystal Henderson examined her step-son Oliver’s boneless chicken to find a deep fried piece of blue hand roll. What a rip off! I mean, what’s the point of ordering boneless if you still have to eat around the hand roll? More »

McDonald's France Introduces American-Themed Summer Menu That Has Nothing To Do With The America You Know

For my money, I’d bet that McDonald’s in France has that, oh, je ne sais quoi, that makes its fast fare superior to the golden arches found here in the US of A. That is, until now. The French franchise has introduced a limited-time ‘American Summer’ menu, featuring sandwiches loosely based on the states of California and Florida. More »
