Fast-food thinking slow: food items that just don’t belong

Countless fast food restaurants continue to push food items that no one asked for.

Let’s start here. Chick-fil-A’s wrap has no place on the menu because literally nobody orders it.

When you go to Chick-fil-A, their scrumptious Chick-fil-A sauce is a must, but they have an item on the menu that would impossibly be just as gross with their best sauce on the menu – the Chick-fil-A Cool Wrap.

Why does someone feel the absolute need to order a healthy option at a place that is known for delicious unhealthy food? I’ll tell you who, young moms whose kid really wants chicken nuggets.

In a way, yeah I get it, the mom does yoga and tries to avoid fried food; that’s why mom gets a wrap, a whole grain wrap. But come on, mom should treat herself. Get actual bread. Live a little.

Items that have no place on restaurant menus don’t stop at Chick-fil-A. There are quite a few more.

If you have ever been to The Cheesecake Factory, you know the portions are abnormally large, and they have just too many options.

One item on The Cheesecake Factory menu that really gets me riled up is their Carolina Grilled Salmon. This item has barbeque sauce glazed on the salmon. No type of sauce that is at a summer cookout belongs on salmon. At all. That’s like putting ketchup on a very expensive $70 steak, you just don’t do it.

Let me ask a question, if you were either offered a Big Mac or a McDonald’s salad, what would you choose?

That was a redundant question, of course the Big Mac, it’s what McDonald’s is known for. You can get a salad at a normal restaurant. You always got to go with a Big Mac.

I cannot get started on how much these items really disappoint me. Nobody orders them, and quite frankly, these restaurants all have better options.

What about other restaurants? What other food items? How deep does the well run? How many restaurants actually sell items that just don’t belong? \Well, there are just too many.
