Advertised Fast Food Compared To The Real Deal

Advertised And Real Hamburgers Compared

I have to admit that I am not too much of a fast food junkie. I’d rather cook my meal myself and enjoy the rich flavors of real unspoiled vegetables along with a meal that I know what has gone into it. It’s easy to fall victim to the anti fast food campaigns though which pretty much spread through word of mouth, but I haven’t been affected too much by that. It’s just a genuine interest in cooking, and making my own food myself I guess. Recent research; however, has somewhat shown that red meat is a huge cause of cancer, not only in the stomach but also in the throat. Yeah, I guess we all got a little scared now, but remember that these are early conclusions, and it definitely depends on the amount you consume.

Let’s talk a little about the fast food that millions of people stuff their faces with each and every day, especially the millions of hamburgers that are consumed. Advertisements are one of the most powerful mediums these burger chains have to spread their reigns. We don’t seem to be phased by the differences between an advertised burger and the one that is actually in the package when we get it, and we consume it like our lives depended on it.

As with everything, there has been some research in this field as well. However, this time, it’s by a true consumer who wanted to point out the differences between an advertised fast food burger and the one you actually get to eat. The result should not really surprise you, yet it does. The difference is so intense, it is just mind boggling. Just have a look at these comparisons done by fast food consumer Dario D. I would feel a little cheated by the way they advertise their burgers, and the lump of dough you get in the box. It’s sad really, if you ask me. I guess there is a reason why they call it fast food, right? I mean, a food designer has all the time in the world to prepare the “one” hamburger that goes into these franchise advertisements.
