McDonald’s Plans to Print Nutrition Data INSIDE Food Boxes
Ok! But,
1. You have to buy and unwrap it first to learn the fat, calories, protein, carbs. See the New York Times photo.
2. No ingredients listed. Maybe because it takes 50-100 cows to make a burger…at minimum.
3. No label for Drinks. Even a “Child’s soda,” at 12 ounces, has 10 teaspoons of sugar and 150 calories.
4. Combo meals? No listing…because they start at over 1000 calories. Each.
5. No listing for trans fats–and that’s because you don’t want to know.
And the February 2006 Olympics, when this campaign is to launch, is far, far away.
So, what do fast food can you eat?
You can enjoy a McDonalds burger if you’re really careful. But otherwise, bring your own.
