So BK Apple Fries are NOT Fried Fast Food Afterall
Its worst than I thought.
Those Burger King Apple Fries are NOT fried.
Funny – why call them fried then??
Has the fast food’s industry’s multi-billion dollar campaign to sell our kids fast food convinced them that if something ISN'T fired it doesn’t taste good??
I would have liked to have been at the focus group of 5 to 10-year-olds on this one.
“Who’d like some fresh apple sticks.” Dead silence in the room.
“OK then – who’d like some Apple FRIES?”
“Me... Me too… I want some… give them to me!”
But that brings up another question.
Can you call something fried that isn’t?
You can’t call something Kosher - when it’s not.
You can’t call something all beef – when it’s not.
So why can they call something fried - when it’s not??
I smell fertile ground for a lawsuit here.
Distraught mother, ”I ordered Apple Fries for my little boy. He bit into one and discovered they were NOT fired, and now he's been traumatized for life. I want one million dollar for our pain and suffering.”
They’ll settle out of court for $250K.
PS - I wonder if the new Burger King King scares the kids as much and he does me?
