In general, fast food is not good for your health. Sometimes the reason is because the food is not treated the way it should have been. In one Reddit thread there have been many workers who have shared the worst food you could possibly order in their restaurant. It might be because of dirty equipment, old ingredients, gross practises or others. Here is a list that will forever change the way you eat at the most popular fast food chains.
Most people go to McDonald’s for the burgers. It is no surprise that this one is not the most popular choice. This is the reason why the fish is not fresh. A worker has shared that they usually cook this sandwich around 11 AM and from then on it is just staying there ready to be bought. It is not until 3 PM that usually someone picks it up. After that what is left is thrown away.
Sonic Chicken Sandwich
A man who has worked at this place has claimed that the Sonic chicken is not actually made from chicken, but didn’t share more on the topic afterwards. Another problem is that it is said that the chicken is not fresh, so keep that in mind.
Taco Bell Beans
The Mexican food chain should have been known for its wonderful beans. However, they turn out to be bagged and require water to turn to the beans many people love. A former employee has been advising people to stay away from the steak and the beans that are being sold there. At first, she said that the latter resemble cat food and employees are required to just pour some water and stir it until they can no longer see white anymore.
Starbucks’ Secret Menu
Employees have shared on Reddit that there are no secret menus. The barista will usually try to find out that it is that you are ordering and make something including this base drink. You should never order from the so-called “secret menu’’ since it doesn’t exist. It’s better to know the base drink and the modification and just order that. If you tell the barista some strange name, he/she will come up with a drink to give you.
The fries at this place are said to be very old. In most cases they are even served cold so best if you just stay away from them.
Dunkin’ Donuts Donuts
The donuts at this place have to be a staple and the best thing on the menu, but they turn out not to be as fresh as they should be. They have also been delivered frozen. There are many other places where you could go for a good donut.
Subway Oven-Roasted Chicken Sandwich
It might sound delicious, but the truth is that the sandwich is boiled in a microwave which is not delicious or healthy at all.
Sonic Ice Cream
This goes for most fast food chains. Most of the employees have not been properly trained on how to maintain and clean the machines. This means that if you look closely you might even be able to find mold. Best to be avoided.
KFC Original Chicken
In case you feel like visiting KFC for some fried chicken, you should know that it is not the best time to go right before they close. If you do, the chances of getting an older chicken, or one that has been dropped on the floor are high.
McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets
Those are one of the most best selling items on the menu. However, you should know that they are not fresh – usually they would stay a few hours before someone picks them up. A trick is to ask for fresh chicken nuggets when ordering. There is a timer which indicates when it is time to make new ones and throw away the others, but most of the times it is ignored.
