So we all know how we made our New Years resolution about how healthy we would be for the year 2015 ?
Well so far , I can seriously say that resolution is almost out the window, just almost.
Unfortunately for me , those 8 count chicken nuggets at Chic-Fi-La dipped in the delicious, addicting Chic-fi-la sauce have gotten through to me.
And I gotta say, I enjoy a good burger and fries every now and then . And I am no stranger to some nice donuts at Dunkin Donuts with my coffee every now and then.
Safe to say we can all conclude that , I have not being healthy one bit for these past couple of weeks, that's why you could imagine my surprise when I saw this article on Minq. com about some fast food items that you should never order according to Employees themselves.
I decided to share this list with you guys, since ignorance is not bliss and I'd want to know if what I was eating and buying was not a good choice at all.
In all actuality there is more items than just 10, but I decided to not ruin everyone's appetite just yet ;)
So this is for all my food lovers, brace yourselves.
Starting off with number 10 on our list is ..
I have to say I am the least surprise when it comes to this food item, Because I have gotten some dry and semi cold nuggets before. But according to employees, McDonald's usually let these nuggets sit around in a warming bun, until they are ordered by a customer .*sour face emoji* . Their best suggestion is that you use the phrase "fresh Mcnuggets" every time you order
9. Taco Bell Steak and Beans
Whooo, this looks painfully delicious right? Well don't look too much according to one employee at Taco bell, he warns all customers to stay away from anything containing beans and steak. Why? Apparently because the beans are made from a rehydrated mix of ingredients and when the steak sits too long, then it starts to look like hair gel. Wowza! looks like I won't be hitting up this burrito anytime soon.
8.Panera Bread's Pasta
Now this one I have to say it's not so bad. According to an employee, Panera bread pastas are not cooked fresh as it appears to be. Apparently the pasta is usually already frozen and when a customer orders it, then it is heated in the microwave and served to them. If I was to be smart I would stick to the freshly made sandwiches and salad. But I gotta say their white mac and cheese is bomb, and I don't plan on giving that up just yet. Oops
Okay one I have to say, I'm not really a fan of Chili in general and two I have never eaten at Wendy's before. But according to an employee the Chili is made from left over hamburger from the grill that has not been used, which is then collected into a container until there is enough to be made into a Chili...... Enough said.
6.Kfc Barbeque Sanwiches
According to one longtime woker at Kfc, customers should stay away from ordering this item. Because apparently the chicken used in them is so stale that it couldn't even be given to homeless shelters. So instead of throwing it out, workers soak them in barbecue sauce and leave it in theheater for a month until it is then served. Okay all I gotta say is Echh!, thank goodness I've never actaully tried one of those before. SMH
5.Eggs from Einstein Bagels
4. Donuts from Dunkin Donuts
This one broke my heart just a tiny bit, Okay so apparently these donuts aren't as great and freshly made as we thought. The donuts are delivered to the store frozen and then cooked on the premises. I mean hey at least they are cooked right, so I have to say it's not so bad, we can't all be perfect lol. Plus they taste good so..
3.Basebal/Footballl Staduim Hot dogs
I always knew there were something odd about the taste of the stadium hot dogs. Now everything makes sense. Employees say that they are kept hydrated in warming water and the unused portion gets refrigerated and recycled for the next event. So safe to say, you could be eating a months old hot dog. Who the heck in their right mind recycles cooked hot dogs for days, and weeks and months. SMH DOUBLE
2.Movie Theater Popcorn
Apparently if you are getting popcorn at an early show, then you should be aware that chances are the popcorn was kept in a garbage bag overnight and simply reheated in the morning. As if the price of the popcorn weren't high enough , now you have to deal with recycled and possibly stale ones. It's better to just go to a late night showing, where popcorn is supposedly made fresh then.
Once again another food item of McDonald's, appear on my list again. Why am I not surprised. Well according to a long time employee the Mccafe machine is the most neglected part of the cleaning process.. Apparently most workers and managers aren't trained in how to properly clean this machine. So chances are that the drink you are sipping, came from not so clean tubes. It appears my days of Mocha Frappe at Mcdonalds might be over,Starbucks is slowly calling my name.
And that's all for today guys! Its unfortunate that there are even more stuff out there that we order and eat and are not safely prepared for us. We should really try to be informed and cautious about the things we buy in and out outside of our homes , because some of these things are just trifling.In fact the names of some of these food should be called Diarrhea because that's exactly what's going to happen to you ,when you eat them.
After finishing this blog, I am starting to think that maybe I should stick to my New Years resolution after all.
Safe to say this blog goes under the Ickey List.
