Fast Food Corner

Remember a time in the 1980's when Burger King was trying to compete with McDonald's Chicken McNuggets? Burger King introduced their Chicken Tenders and basically promoted it as being made with real chicken breast, not the processed kind that McDonalds uses in its Chicken McNuggets. The tenders were all shaped differently, thus "proving" they were made with real chicken breast.

What happened to that promotion? Not sure if you've had a Burger King chicken tender in the past few years, but now they are shaped like King's crowns ... so much for the "real looking" strips. I guess people don't care what their chicken nugget or tender looks like or what it's made of, as long as it tastes good, right?
