Cheeburger Cheeburger is a small chain with a handful of restaurants in about 20 states. They're best known for their "invent your own taste" menu with over 30 free toppings that you can mix and match. Check it out.
McDonald's introduced new Fruit & Maple oatmeal to its breakfast lineup. I rarely eat breakfast and even more rarely eat oatmeal, so somebody will have to let me know how it is.
In response to a class action lawsuit filed by a single individual in California claiming Taco Bell's meat is only 35% real beef, Taco Bell responded with a volley of media announcements as well as this You Tube response from the company's president:
In a statement on the company's website, Taco Bell said "The lawsuit is bogus and filled with completely inaccurate facts." The statement went on to say "The lawyers got their facts wrong. We take this attack on our quality very seriously and plan to take legal action against them for making false statements about our products."
Fast Food Source will follow this story as it develops. Meanwhile, Taco Bell, I love you but how about taking the opportunity in the spotlight to announce some unique menu items with unique quality ingredients, rather than parading out a Beef Crunch Burrito that gets its crunch from FRITO'S?!
Why is it that McDonald's cannot master a decent chicken sandwich? I tried the Chicken Club premium sandwich the other day. Nice touch that you can opt for grilled rather than fried, but the kudos stop there. Look at what I got:
Does this look appetizing to you? The sandwich was as boring, dry, and tasteless as it looks in the pic. Built from the bottom up, the ingredients are assembled as heel, chicken breast, swiss slice, tomato, lettuce leaf, mayo, and crown. Interestingly, these are the same items in the superior Carl's Jr. and Hardee's Chicken Club. But while Carl makes his sandwich juicy and flavorful, McDonald's take is bland and uninspiring.
McDonald's - it is time for you to step up and put together a chicken sandwich worthy of your status at the top of the (fast) food chain.
More than once, I have lamented the passing of classic, old school french fries swapped out in the prime of life for flashy new fries with unnecessary seasoning bells and whistles. Still, encouraged by Jack In the Box's changed fry earlier this year, I gave Wendy's the benefit of the doubt in trying out their new Natural-Cut Fries with Sea Salt. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
Wendy's did not abandon the ideal that a french fry should taste like a potato. Instead, they appear to be willing to let the potatoes speak for themselves. The sea salt coating is generous, and being a prominent part of the name it shouldn't be a surprise that these fries are saltier than the old version. In fact, a quick comparison of the nutrition information on the Wendy's website with the data for the old fries found at fastfoodfacts.info shows that a medium order of the new fries have 500mg of sodium vs the old fries' 340mg. They also have more calories (420 vs 390) and more fat (20g vs 17g).
But Fast Food Source is not a nutrition site. We are a fast food fan site. So taste matters. Wendy's new fries are a worthy addition and, in our opinion, the best of the "new" fry offerings.
