    I don't like food that's really hot and spicy. I have to be careful not to use the wrong sauce when I eat at Del Taco because their mild sauce comes in red packets and their hot sauce comes in orange packets. At other places the orange packets are mild and the red packets are hot. Why does Del Taco have to be different?

    I've seen a lot of KFC and Sizzler restaurants go out of business but I don't think I've ever heard of a McDonalds going out of business. They all do well.

    AJC.com, Dec 6 2017 12:58 PM

    The previously unknown flavor of mystery Oreos creme has been revealed. After offering a $50,000 prize for the person who entered a correct guess on the Oreo mystery cookie website, Oreo parent company Mondelez revealed the source of the creme’s fruity flavor on Facebook: Fruity Pebbles cereal. When the contest was initially announced in October, the cereal was a popular guess. Many who tried the cookie wrote on Facebook that the flavor choice was not a favorite.

    "Fake news" is easy to identify -- but it's much harder to detect "fake food."

    Only one McDonald’s breakfast dish uses 'real' eggs
    Reader's Digest, Dec 12 2017

    McDonald's extended its breakfast hours in 2015 instead of cutting the morning foods off at 10:30 AM. If the later hours mean you've been ordering from the fast food chain's breakfast menu more often, you might want to know a secret about its eggs. Most of the egg dishes at McDonald's use a "folded egg." It looks like a standard omelet folded up but the egg liquid contains nonfat milk, modified food starch, salt and citric acid. The eggs are cooked and folded in another location, then frozen and shipped to the McDonald's restaurants.

    The scrambled egg sausage mix in a McDonald's breakfast burrito is made elsewhere and mixed with meat, vegetables, spices, sugar, dextrose and xanthan gum before being frozen. Restaurants microwave the egg mix to reheat it. Meanwhile, the liquid used to make scrambled eggs in the Big Breakfast contains just eggs and the preservative citric acid, and they're cooked fresh on location.

    To get the freshest egg possible, order an Egg McMuffin. Unlike the other breakfast sandwiches, McMuffins are made with a whole egg cracked into a metal ring that keeps the egg in the right shape.

    Subway is bringing back the $5 footlong — and franchisees are revolting against the deal
    Business Insider, Dec 14 2017 1:47 PM

    Subway is reportedly planning on bringing back the $5 footlong deal in January. More than 400 franchisees signed a petition to protest the deal, saying the chain's previous promotions have "decimated" business. Subway's sales are plummeting, with The New York Post reporting that traffic has fallen 25% over the last five years.

    One definition of "arch" is "deliberately or affectedly playful and teasing; mischievous; roguish." Think about that.

    McDonald's is bringing back one of its most expensive failures
    Business Insider, Jan 2 2018

    McDonald's is testing a new take on a high-profile flop. The fast-food chain recently began a test of Archburgers made with fresh beef at seven locations in Oklahoma and Texas. With the test, McDonald's "Arch Sauce" has returned to the menu for the first time since the late 1990s. Arch Sauce is a mustard-mayo combination that McDonald's debuted as a topping for the Arch Deluxe — a sandwich aimed at more sophisticated and "adult" customers — that debuted in 1996.

    McDonald's spent an estimated $200 million advertising the Arch Deluxe's rollout, which was, at the time, the most expensive promotional campaign in fast-food history. The fast-food chain's executives predicted that the burger would bring in $1 billion in sales in 1996. However, the burger cost $2.49, pricier than typical McDonald's fare, and failed to win over customers. It was discontinued in the late '90s.

    In 2018, McDonald's is once again trying to use Arch Sauce to appeal to more gourmet-minded customers, pairing it with fresh beef in the Archburger. But this time, the burger is more reasonably priced, starting at $2.19 for an Archburger with cheese, pickle, onions and Arch Sauce.
