Although people are getting a lot more health conscious, this doesn’t mean that fast food is on the downswing. In fact, it is actually the opposite.
Take in the US for example. Back in the ’70s, the industry made $6 billion per year. That figure might seem like a lot, however, according to Franchise Help, it has now grown to $200 billion per year in the US alone!
In total, the industry makes $570 billion per year, so clearly, the industry is still alive and well today, satisfying consumers’ needs whenever they arise.
But people often associate fast food with high calories. Truth be told, it really isn’t all bad. Below is a look at some passable menu items that can satisfy junk food urges while being pretty tame in terms of calories. With items from McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut, and various other fast food favorites, people don’t have to overdo it to satisfy their taste buds.
On the flip side, there are a few menu items that are not only bad, but even worse than anticipated. That’ll include anything from a double Baconator to even a McDonald’s salad. Can a salad really be more fattening than a Big Mac? Scroll down for a bit of a surprise on that front.
Here are passable fast food items and those that might be even worse than diners thought. Let’s get started.
