    America's New "Worst" Food

    I am saddened to announce the recent defeat of KFC's Double Down sandwich by a newcomer named the "Big Catch" from Long John Silver's restaurant. The Big Catch more than doubles the sodium level of the Double Down as well as saturated fat. It also quadruples the daily recommended bad nutritional values according to the American Heart Association. See article for more info: http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-livin...150800343.html

    The sad thing is that the fish is really good - by itself, it would be pretty lean. I get their meal every once in a while, but the fatness has me concerned. I'd rather have their salmon platter where the whole meal is like 350 calories or something like that.

    Yikes! It's no wonder there's a problem with heart attacks n' shit. Here in Canada they don't have the double down or any of this kinda stuff.

    What's really funny, is I just got hired by KFC....

    It's nice to have a PT job just a 3-5 min walk from my place. Don't have to drive or anythin'. Hated how I had to drive to another town to work at HBC.
    I dunno why, but I know 2 people who worked there and they say if you ever work for KFC, you'll hate eating there for the rest of your days.
    I don't think I would tho.

    That's pretty much true for any work in the food service industry. It took me a good two years to really eat ice cream after my first job - I worked at a convenience store that doubled as an ice cream shop. Yeah, I know how to make floats, sundaes, and banana splits. . I still haven't had anything like that and it has been 20 years!

    Wait a minute. Is the fried chicken in those double downs functioning as bread?

    Indeed, the Double Down has no bread and is consistent with the low-carb Atkins diet for weight loss.

    That KFC thing looks...interesting.

    That fish looks a lot like fish you get over here, though. I'm sure there's a lot that's pretty unhealthy. Especially in Scotland...

    I'm guessing no one in America is selling the deep-fried marsbar yet? Or the deep-fried Creme Egg? (Are those sweets even avalibille in the US? If not, it's basically...chocolate with caramel in it, deep fried.) (And no, I have never tried one.)

    BTW why are they upset about fast food being...unhealthy.

    I'd actually be scared to eat the double down. That looks like it could do some irreversible damage to arteries in one sitting.

    For this and many other reasons, I'm embarrassed to be an American.
