Kleenex, Buonasera, Good Afternoon,

Good posts on fast food chains ... I had read your one on Wendy´s as well ...

In Spain for example, the locals who frequent fast food chains, are predominately people with children ... They cater to the local tastes, and thus, have to keep changing the cartes ... They also use, local regional products which are very different than the products in the USA ...

In India, the burgers are lamb or chicken ... In Pakistan, no pork ground can be used, nor in Morocco. In Spain, the burger has Spanish type PATATAS BRAVAS, which are double fried potatoes cut in thick wedges and served with a Spicy Smoked Pimentón Paprika made from La Vera, Extremaduran Cayenne ...

So one can see, they are innovating ... and prices have dropped due to the crisis.

Thanks for posting ...

Margi.

Gravy Queen: I have never eaten there either

I receive their foreign press relations, as I am a professional journalist.

I am from another generation ... I have never eaten at Burger King or Kentucky Fried or Wendy´s ...

I eat very little red meat and when I do, it is a Roast made at home or in Uruguay and Argentina ... or a very select restaurant, as I do like a rare thick steak every so often ...

Not my cup of tea ...

Kind regards.
Margi.

I recommend watching "supersize me".

The only fast food I can stomach is Schlotzsky's.

Sorry buck I should have expanded . I only ever took my kids to Maccy D when they were younger as a treat . Now none of us ever eat there . Plus watching Supersize me would put anyone off (or perhaps not).

It's not even interesting when I expanded lol .

I suppose in my royal deluded head I am far too grand for Maccy D and my sophisticated palate . Jeeves pass me the sherry and a turkey twizzler ! Hic.
