Posted in Random » Wow   5 Jun 2012   / 13915 views

If you thought you knew everything about fast food, think again.


One in every eight American workers has been employed by McDonald's

McDonald's is Brazil’s largest employer

In England you can buy a McDonald's Bacon Roll

It is literally just bacon and ketchup on a roll

A McDonald's Corn Muffin has more Calories than a Glazed Doughnut

McDonald's in Germany sells beer

In Japan you can buy the McDonald's Bacon Potato Pie

Which, again, is literally just a pie stuffed with bacon and potatoes.

Antarctica is the only continent on the planet without a McDonald's

In Australia because of a copyright conflict Burger King is called Hungry Jack's

You would need to walk for 9 miles to burn off the calories of a Double Whopper with cheese

Chinese Burger King's started carrying a Black Truffle Angus XT

It had truffles on it and endive instead of lettuce. Shockingly, it only cost $5 American.

Burger King made the first ever fast food attack ad in 1981 which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar

Wendy’s offered the first ever value menu in 1988

This guy is eating all of it at once...

Wendy's claims it created "the first modern-day, drive-thru window" in 1971

Frosties at Wendy's the Philippines come with coffee-flavored jellies in them

Wendy's has a 1 lb. burger not listed on the menu called the Classic Home Run

When KFC first translated the slogan "finger lickin' good" into Chinese, it came out as "eat your fingers off."

The only complete, handwritten copy of KFC's 11 herbs and spices is kept in a vault in corporate headquarters

This list comes pretty close though...

In some locations you can buy 'Mashies' – balls of mashed potato cooked in batter

Wendy's founder Dave Thomas invented the KFC paper chicken bucket when he was a franchisee of several locations in Ohio

The bucket's original design

Chinese KFCs sell a porridge of rice with pork, egg, pickles and mushrooms called "Congee"

Colonel Sanders' full name is Harland David Sanders

Taco Bell has failed twice in Mexico, the second time even trying to advertise as "authentic American food"

In China Taco Bell is called Taco Bell Grande and serves alcoholic Margaritas

The Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Canada are the only places where Taco Bell offers French fries

Chalupa is a Spanish word that means boat

Spanish Taco Bells sell a Chocodilla, which is a chocolate quesadilla

"The Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Canada are the only places where Taco Bell offers French fries." This statement is not true, they sell these in Costa Rica.

there are only a few burger kings in China (most of the american fast food restaurants ar McDonalds and KFC). Old ones were in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Last years they opened some on Beijing (train station) and other cities (like Tianjin, don't know about Shanghai though) so I don't think many people knows about Burger King in China. Also, the taste of the burgers in Shenzhen is crappy if you compare it to the same burger in HongKong.

True story bros!
