Total Fat 7g

The yellow Casio G-shock on your wrist shows 1:32pm. You still have not had lunch. Just wanna grab a quick bite before heading back to your office by 2:05. You spot a fast food chain 1 block away and walk straight towards it. Look around and you notice that the happy place is packed with school kids and office workers. Minutes later is your turn to place an order.

Cashier: Sir, how can I help you?
You: Yes, I would like to have a Meal #2 please.
Cashier: Do you want cheese on it?
You: Yes, and can you please super size it please.
Cashier: Alrightt! Anything else?
You: Nope
Cashier: For here or to go?
You: To go.
Cashier: Ok. Your total is $4.86

So you walk out with a huge burger, a bag of supersize fries and a drink thinking that you've just paid less than 5 bucks for lunch. Sitting under a tree, you open up the bag and swallow the whole meal in about 15 mins. Look at your wrist watch again, it's about time to get back to your office.

Here are my questions to you:
Do you care about the nutritional facts of fast food? Will consumers(children or adults) eat less because of those facts? Do you know that McDonald's will soon be printing nutritional facts?


PS: I have nothing against Mickey D =)

well i guess we'll still continue eating fast food tho they put on those nutritional facts.
Probably wont double size it thats all.

even if there are nutritional facts on healthy food and products, do you think ppl would care ?

-NO- . it's the taste that matters :p

In all honesty, personally no.

We sort of treat fast food as a big snack, like chips (crisps) and chocolate, so we've expected it to be unhealthy for us.

But they sure taste good eh?

Woof! :D

Hmmm... Of course I know, but it won't change my mind to give a bite, although I not eat Mcd very often.

Hmm... maybe yes. I'm getting more and more health-consious lately. Anyway, I think we all better cut down on fastfood although once in a blue moon is okay.

Warrior,
Yes, I think most girls would care about their calories... It will be very helpful if they put on the label. It might turn some of us off...

Winn - So you like fastfood????????

furkids- Alright, add a bag of fries to the 2 bones which I already owe you :P

Gina - You know, nobody is forcing them to eat, so why do people still wanna sue???? Come on G, we all know that you are a great dancer *wink*

chinyi - Don't you think German food is healthier than fastfood?

day-dreamer Health conscious? Then you better stay away from fastfood regardless of the color of the moon.

I don't really fancy fast food ever since i outgrew my teenage years. Morgan Spurlock, the fella who made the movie, "Super Size Me" is crazy to risk his life by eating McDonald's for every meal of the day for one whole month. Fast food is safe as long as you eat it once in while. I only take it once a month or a few times a year.
