Burgers, Shakes and Dimethylpolysiloxane.

Which one of the above doesn’t belong?

Well, technically they all belong depending on where you choose to get your burger fix. I accidentally came in contact with an empty box that once contained Frozen french fries from a certain national Mcburger chain. The ingredient list was on the side so I couldn’t stop myself from looking. Like me, you’d assume there would be more to the list than simply potatoes, and you’d be right, see for yourself.

Don’t worry, I won’t be held Mclibel for exposing their big secret, this can easily be found online.

As a general rule, Doctors recommend not eating food with ingredients you can’t pronounce. As a footnote to that rule, I recommend not eating things that are vital components for making of Silly Putty and Cosmetics.

Why on earth do you need this much stuff in french fries? I looked on the back of the bag of organic fries I buy for my kid to eat on occasion. They are still good until the end of 2012. There are only 4 ingredients and none of them are used to preserve anything. Were I to make fresh hot fries at home, I would use 3 items. Potatoes, Oil and Salt.

Excuse while I channel Mr. Seinfeld. What’s the deal with beef flavor? I mean, in a majority of cases, people are consuming these fries WITH a hamburger, so is the extra helping of beef flavor really necessary? As far as I’m concerned, it’s the constitutional right of a burger, in a burger joint type scenario, to be the lone representative of beef flavor. Cows everywhere should be offended.
