This is just the next bad food to come out of the fast food industry…
The next time a fast food chain sends its nutritionist to speak with health writers about improvements to her company’s nutrition, pull up this post. Burger King has just unleashed an abomination that makes its Chicken Fries even more deplorable than before. The new product is similar to the original, but includes a “crispy Cheetos-flavored breading”. Here is the ingredient list for the original version (the company has yet to disclose the ingredient list of the new product):
UNCOOKED CHICKEN BREAST STRIP FRITTERS WITH RIB MEAT: Chicken Breast with Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning (Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Flavoring), Modified Potato Starch, Sodium Phosphates: BREADED WITH: Bleached Wheat Flour, Modified Wheat Starch, Rice Flour, Salt, Spices, Dextrose, Paprika, Monosodium Glutamate, Dehydrated Garlic, Dehydrated Onion, Soybean Oil, Maltodextrin, Natural Flavor, Extractives of Paprika. BATTERED WITH: Water, Bleached Wheat Flour, Corn Starch, Modified Wheat Starch, Maltodextrin, Potato Starch, Modified Corn Starch, Methylcellulose, Mono and Diglycerides, Leavening (Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate), PREDUSTED WITH: Bleached Wheat Flour, Modified Corn Starch, Dextrose, Monosodium Glutamate, Salt, Maltodextrin, Corn Starch, Sugar, Soybean Oil, Paprika, Spice, Onion Powder, Extractives of Paprika, Garlic Powder, Turmeric, Natural Flavors. Breading set in Vegetable Oil. CONTAINS: WHEAT
The list does not include the oil in which this “food” is deep fried. We can venture to guess that the Cheetos edition includes even more artificial flavors, as well as an artificial color, Yellow #6. Photos from the real world (not the BK ad), make this product look quite ugly as well.
KISS Fact: I’m sure you didn’t think that these chicken fries were anywhere near a good idea to eat. Just use common sense to figure that out. How make orders of Cheetos chicken fried do you think will be sold? Are poor kids have no hope if parents are feeding these types of food to their kids. Do not think it just a treat for them, even a little bit of cocaine is bad for you.
