... I'm glad I don't eat any of those!

The baconater is quite tasty.

So is my grilled chicken salad sandwich with balsamic glaze, baby spinach, red onion, sun dried tomatoes, sharp provolone on lightly toasted panini.

With blueberry acai lemonade! Mmmm blueberry acai lemonade.

I distrust the sudden fascination with acai berry.
Also, it tastes like bitter poop on its own. BITTER POOP, JAG.

One of the things that makes me glad to be an american is that i know I won't be passing out on a hot day.

God bless the united states of sodium and no where else!

I'm re-actively hypertensive just reading those numbers.

New York has started requiring the nutrition breakdown of food to be on menus of major corporate restaurants. There's also a stir to limit or ban the amount of salt that can be used.

I'm not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, modified sodium is the reason people crave nearly everything in those center aisles of the grocery. On the other, I don't want to eat in a restaurant where the cooks aren't using salt. On the third hand, DOUBLE DOWN YUM YUM EAT EM UP!

So salt can be bad, right, but it's mostly the quantity of it in all this fast food. Do you think they'd go so far as to ban salt levels enough to impinge on non fast food places?

NY is the greatest Daddy Knows Best state ever.

I nearly spit out my drink laughing while I read that last sentence.

I loved the Frappuccino drinks when I still ate sugar, especially the java chip one that was like a bajillion MGs of caffeine.

And I used to wonder why I was so fat....

Look, if it didn't have enough caffeine to make my heart skip enough beats I thought I was in love with the barrista, I didn't bother.

Why hate them? Because of the two scoops of corn starch thickener love?

I tried a Double-Down. It was actually fairly tasty... the chicken was plump and juicy, and the sauce complemented it well. I won't have another one, though, because the idea is fucking stupid. We put bread around messy things for a reason.

The sad part about some of those items is that they'd actually fill me up a lot better than that Double Down and, in the case of the salad, don't include another 300 calories from the fries.

Ratios before calories!
