Fast Food Corner

As you probably already know, I tend to like fast food ... probably a little more than I should. So, I feel that it is a duty of mine to bring up issues or concerns I have about fast food restaurants and questionable tactics they employ.

For instance, Chick Fil-A offers a "healthy" alternative to french fries ... now, I don't think the fine folks at Chick Fil-A should ever worry about me choosing healthy over their waffle fries, but certainly there are some people out there who opt the healthier way. I believe the healthy option is some sort of fruit cup.

However, Chick Fil-A charges more for said fruit cup. Really? Fruit cups more pricey than fries? I don't understand. And, doesn't it look like Chick Fil-A is trying to discourage good health with this? (Again, keep in mind, I doubt I'll ever choose the furit cup over the french fry).

For some reason, this miffs me a little. And, I'm not sure if this is the case at other fast food restaurnats ... I mean, I hope it isn't. It doesn't seem fair to me. Will this prevent me from going to Chick Fil-A? No, probably not ... but still.

Yep. Costs more to eat healthy. Go figure.

Fruit costs more than potatoes, spoils faster, and is harder to freeze.
