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.
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.
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.
They Are Still Chicken
McDonald's delicious chicken nuggets have had more stories behind them than McDonald's restaurants over the years. At one stage, it was thought they were not made of chicken at all, and they were sent to labs to give the verdict. We have conclusions.
Chicken nuggets ARE made of chicken. It might not all be chicken MEAT, but it's 100% chicken. The nuggets contain very little meat, and the rest is a mixture of fat, bones, and tendons.
And What About Strawberry Frappuccino?
Starbucks was founded in 1971, and besides its wonderful cakes and pastries, it is known for its fluffy frappuccinos. The cream and coffee-flavored delight has been a best-seller, however, not many know what it really consists of. Well, at least not until 2011.
Up until 2011, the regulations on beverages and edible goods weren't as strict as they are today. The red coloring in the strawberry frappuccino was sourced from cochineal beetles. The FDA brought this to an end, and today, not only Starbucks but all red food coloring is sourced from carmine, making us feel a lot less guilty when indulging in one of these.
