Fast Food Worker's Advice For Which Menu Items To Avoid

Fast food workers took to Reddit offering first-hand advice for the menu items customers should avoid at all costs. On Tuesday, Reddit user theonlybluecow submitted a thread asking, "Chain restaurant employees, what should customers not order from your menu?"
It's since gained nearly 13,000 responses -- responses that won't just have you avoiding particular items, but avoiding fast food in general.

One fast food employee pointed out that the veggie burgers are cooked on the same grill as the meat patties anyway. However, don't think you'll be any better ordering pizza.

hylianbarista posted:"Starbucks barista of six years here. First and foremost, Frappuccinos are 99% sugar, fat, and empty calories and the rest is instant coffee. The coffee roast is an instant pack we mix with water and you get a few pumps. Add that to whole milk, all different kinds of syrups, inclusions, thickening syrup (gives it the consistency) and whipped cream, and you've got nothing nutritious for you. Even a basic coffee frappuccino is almost 500 calories."

The only healthy fast food option may be taking the option that's not fast food.
