Well, well, well—It looks like the junk food mad scientists have been up to their usual tricks. My friend Alex sent me this article the other day, and I could not believe this stuff.
Exhibit A: Pizza Hut restaurants in the UK are set to unveil a hot-dog-stuffed-crust pizza with a mustard drizzle.
I’m sorry, but that just doesn’t even sound good. Hot dogs and pizza in the same bite? I dunno…
Also mentioned, Burger King is testing a “Bacon Sundae” in Nashville. Apparently, the sundae comes with your traditional toppings like fudge and caramel, but it also includes a strip of bacon. Huh. I guess they want to compete with Denny’s Maple Bacon Sundae and the Jack in the Box Bacon Shake that was introduced earlier this year.
I don’t want to sound like the food police here, but um, what about that obesity epidemic? It kind of gets to me that fast food companies are rolling out even more over-the-top crap. I guess one of the ways people line their pockets is by lining the public’s organs with fat. Ew. I went there.
What do you think? Does it bug you when you see advertisements for fast food?
