Fast Food Mayhem

Road tripping season is upon us. The road conditions are much improved and Spring fever drives us to spend time out and about wandering around. When it comes to food, you can't always pack your own, so when it comes to fast food you can pick the lesser evil. Here are a few questions comparing Arby's, McDonald's and Wendy's. So where are you going to eat?

Most of the time, I would rather skip a meal and gorge myself on healthier foods when I get home, than force myself to eat fast food out of price/convenience if I can't get a homemade meal. But then other times, I just want a big ol' greasy meal. *shakes head* I don't get it!

2/4 right. I always felt Wendy's was 'healthier' compared to mcD and the like, but that's probably a misconception.

I just had Wendy's this afternoon...ugh. I eat fast food like once every two months, when i'm stressing out big time, feeling down about something, or just plain pms-ing. I feel like there's a layer of liquid fat on my tongue though. Eeeeeewwww.

I just did a trip from Florida to the Rockies. We hit Taco Bell (bean and cheese burritos) and Cracker Barrel (no sugar added apple pie) a good number of times on the trip with stops at a Whole Foods Market Deli when we could.

I agree about Micky D's vanilla cones. Delicious. Any food is OK in moderation even the dreaded FF. Come on get real!

wendy's and mcdonalds have good salad options, with low fat dressing...but your best bet is a subway salad or sub with sweet onion dressing

Sometimes I steal a fry from my boyfriend, but other than that I don't eat fast food. It's definitely possible to have a road trip w/o hitting up any of these places. I did get the fruit question right!

I worked at Wendy's in high school. Not sure that I have eaten much fast food since. I know how BAD bacon is for you. It has 8-9 grams of fat per piece! And I know that there isn't a Wendy's sandwich with less than 2 pieces. Even the Junior Bacon Cheese burger has a couple pieces of bacon. I think it has over 30 grams of fat. I also know that the "liquid" cheese is TERRIBLE. It is pretty much liquid heart attack! I'm surprised with the Frosty, those things are terrible for you too, more fat than a medium fry. It's pretty much frozen lard.. yummy. If I'm doing fast food, it is either salad, fruit, yougurt or a baked potato (which BOO to Arby's for getting rid of their baked potato.. it was the only thing I could get when the BF was craving Arby's!) I'm with the others here.. finally not embarassed to do terribly on a quiz!

personally, ignorance is not bliss...even if you don't eat the food, it is a good idea to know the healthy options...if not for you then for you to pass on to your friends and family.

Ha! I love your point of view Tidalwave...I too do not want to get these questions right cuz I try to avoid them anyway. If I have to do fast food...give me subway!

Only fast food I eat is Subway. On a road trip, I'd sooner drive another 100 miles before stopping some place without a Subway.

Oh wow, I thought for sure #1 would be the crispy chicken just because of the frying factor.

I would rather eat the bag the food came in than the food itself. Unfortunately when we vacation with my brother and his wife, they eat at these places. Sooo I've pored over the nutrition fact sheets when I'd go with them. Sometimes I'm successful in getting them to try new places with healthier fare... but overall I'm the black sheep of my family!

I think question 1 is wrong. i recently went to a nutrition meeting put on by one of the local gyms. All the information was put out recently (January 2008) and stated that Arby's bacon Beef and Cheddar was 562

0/4 For once I am happy that I sucked at a quiz!! I never eat fast food and had no idea what these places offer! I was glad to see that a few offer fruits, that's good!
