Remember this next fact for your next trip to Buffalo, NY. If you happen to find yourself there, hungry, with no money, and in desperate need of a space to pray, look for Rev. Darius Pridgen’s True Bethel Baptist Church.
This church is much more than it seems. It’s a Subway franchise, it offers jobs for those with no work, and it feeds the hungry. Oh yeah, and it is also a church.
Not a Very Healthy Salad
Next time you plan on having a salad, or anything else based on vegetables at McDonald's, hold your horses and count the calories. Some of the salads the chain has to offer are not as healthy or low cal as you think they are.
The Bacon Ranch Salad, for example, which aside from lettuce, had a generous helping of crispy chicken, can reach up to 680 calories. The big mac only has 540). So, what is it going to be?
A Different Kind of Ring
If McDonald's hadn't changed their original plans and the idea that came up in the mid-1980s would have actually turned into reality, the chicken nuggets as we know them today would not have existed.
In 1983, McDonald's recipe writers created the onion nuggets to accompany the salads they had on offer. Thankfully, the taste testers weren't so impressed by the new creation and the chain continued to work on the nugget recipe.
A Puzzle of Beef
In recent years, McDonald's has been trying to improve its menu, use better products, and support sustainability and other save-our-planet organizations. This next one will make you think before buying your next hamburger.
The chain has admitted that one single hamburger patty can consist of parts sourced from more than 100 cows. Again, more than 100 cows. That's a lot of moo. Maybe too much moo.
You Can Smell It in the Air
When it comes to quality, Arby's is in the lead. In 2014, the chain invested a lot of time and money but gained so much respect and customers that it was all worth it. Arby's had the longest tv commercial ever, which aired for more than 13 hours, all in one single shot.
Arby's wanted to show how delicate their craft is and how seriously they take their work. They filmed a piece of brisket being smoked without skipping a single minute. They proved how dedicated they all were to the famous brisket sandwich.
