So before I announce this week's topic, let me admit one thing: I am a fast food junkie! I try not to eat it more than once a week, but sometimes I get the craving and just can't help it. Yes I am aware it is bad for me. Eating bad is probably the worst habit I have though. I don't smoke, I rarely drink, and I have never done any illegal drugs in my life. Therefore, if the occassional cheeseburger is what I crave, I don't see the problem with that :). If I ever eat so much that I can qualify to be on the "Biggest Loser",trust me I will stop cold turkey. However, my Wii fit still tells me that I qualify as "normal" when it comes to BMI, so I don't have to worry just yet. Now that all of that has been said, my topic for this week is:
"My 5 Favorite Fast Food Items"
1. McDonalds Fountain Coke
Let me state one thing right now. I am a Pepsi person. I rarely buy Coke, unless it is a great sale and even then I mostly just buy Cherry Coke. However, McDonalds somehow has the BEST fountain Coke! I don't know what makes theirs so much different than all the others that sell fountain Coke, but trust me it is. I go through periods where I will crave that every day and stop at Mickey D's just for an ice cold Coke. The fact that they are still only $1 is also a huge plus!
Okay well I can't narrow this place down to just one item. I LOVE everything I have ever had here. Everything is so fresh and "real" tasting. They also don't skimp on the toppings like Taco Bell does. They may cost more than Taco Bell, but it is very much worth it! I can barely eat at Taco Bell anymore since I started eating Qdoba.
3. Cookie Jar Blizzard from Dairy Queen
Well I don't even want to know how many calories I am eating when I order one of these. I do get a small though! Whoever thought of this concotion is a genius! Oreo cookie pieces, cookie dough, fudge swirl, and twist ice cream! LOVE IT!!!! Order this almost everytime I stop at DQ!
4. McDonald's Chicken McNuggets
Back in the day when I was a kid and used to get the chicken mcnugget happy meals, I used to break them open to see which ones were actually white meat and which ones were the other weird ones with the random parts. Well a few years ago, McDonalds got a clue and started making all of their mcnuggets with just white meat. Now there is no need to look inside them before sticking them in your mouth. Every one is equally delicious!
5. McDonalds Filet O'Fish (tie)
McDonald's has the best fish sandwiches in my opinion. I don't know if its the steamed bun or the cheese, but no other fast food joints fish sandwichs can even come close in my opinion. If I am feeling really bad, I go ahead and spend the extra 30 cents for extra tarter sauce.
5.Subway Club (tie)
Okay yes I know I cheated this week by having six, but I just remembered the Subway Club after typing up the filet o'fish. I used to work at Subway and would eat there every single time I worked and never got sick of it. My favorite sub to eat would have to be the Subway Club though. Ham, turkey, roast beef, provolone cheese, light mayo, mustard, tomato and pickle! Can't beat it. The fact that it is the newest $5 footlong makes me uber happy too!!!
