We all know fast food isn't great for you, it's meant to be a once-in-a-while thing, but some people eat nothing but fast food. For those of you who live in the drive-thru, here are some comments that fast food restaurant employees have put on Reddit ...

  • "When I worked at McDonald's, I accidentally left a whole bag of about 100 chicken nuggets out on a counter for way too long. They melted. Into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets I once knew."
  • Wendy's Chili – "The meat comes from hamburger patties that sat on the grill too long to serve to customers. They take them and put them in a bin and then throw them in the fridge. When the chili is made they take it out, boil it, chop it up and dump them in the chili."
  • "I used to work at a restaurant where we deep-fried the Gardenburger patties in the same oil we deep-fried the bacon."
  • "One McDonald's employee confessed to slathering grilled chicken breasts with liquid margarine to keep it from sticking.
  • An ex-Subway employee described the defrosting process they used, which involved soaking the chicken in hot water for hours, then squeezing the "chicken water" out at the end of the day."


Do you eat fast food? A lot? When you hear things like this, does it make you swear off fast foods, or do you just try not to think about it?
