In PA, Ohio, WV, MD, VA, and NC a chain called Sheetz still uses trans fat based oil to fry their fries, they had a lot of flack for not switching, their owner basically said too bad don't buy them then you have a choice... also so does the Sonic Drive-In chain


I wish they were here.

I know right? I want heart disease with every portion of my fries.


Thank you doctor, I appreciate politicizing my junk food. Come talk to me when that roundup ready GMO foods are discovered to cause problems.

Sheetz has good fries. Even the ones with BBQ sauce. I haven't had them I. Awhile but damn they are good.

I just want them to sell beer here now.

A lot of people have very fast metabolisms and President Obama would be a good example. I bet President Obama could eat at McDonalds everyday and not gain 1 pound.

 

I would think his issue is smoking coupled with stress out the arse, rather than metabolism.

World's biggest fast-food chain seeks new ketchup for its famous french fries.

 

Maybe they can switch to good old "Rosella" tomato sauce, and dump that stupid "ketchup" name at the same time!

Heinz ketchup usually doesn't fare well in blind taste tests anyway, they could do much better.


Hunt's 100% Natural Ketchup is much tastier IMO. Very good stuff. That or I'll drag out my great-grandmother's recipe and do some homemade, which IS the best.

Wait so you'd rather have food which greatly increases heart disease, cholesterol and even infertility but are the right amount of crispiness you like?

 

It's nothing to do with politics. It's odd to me you'd take crispiness over your own health.

Well, it's nice to know that doctors and other eggheads have the power over individual choices. As long as people are aware of the health risks, do you really believe scholars should be able to force or limit peoples' choices? Why not ban alcohol, tobacco, and other stuff... us peasants need direction from the nobility. Oh, they are by driving up costs.

If the tyrants cannot influence change, they force it. What a wonderful world. You can choose to die for your country, but don't you dare risk your life with food that is bad for you.

Then you're ridiculous. Even a child could cook tastier, healthier food than the crap they sell at McDonald's.

They haven't used Heinz in the UK for a long while afaik. So this really isn't a big deal. Shareholders may not like it as much but that's what happens in business when something gets too expensive.

 

Either way, I can't remember the last time I bought Tomato Sauce, it's all about the HP.

Didn't answer my question. Typical deflection.

It's not the same. The used to add beef fat, not just stock. It's totally not the same.

Also, not all restaurants are the same. I didn't say Five Guys didn't cook fresh to order, I was merely saying that places like Mcdonalds cook several times a day and keep the patties in a warmer. I know a franchise manager and we have discussed this.

Hey, you guys can eat what you want. I know some regulars that rely on it get defensive, however, I don't like it anymore.

 

 

You don't like it, that's fine, but to tell us we have bad palettes, and you "don't know how we can eat that garbage" is trying to push opinion as fact, and telling us we're wrong for still enjoying mcdonalds.
