Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About Fast Food Chains

A lot of people love fast food even though we know it’s bad for us. Even if it makes us feel guilty, there’s something about a burger and fries that’s hard to resist. In fact, over 25% of Americans consume fast food every day. Maybe because it’s easy to get, quickly served in a casual environment, and tends to cost less than a week’s wages.

In the early 2000s, we were obsessed with the quality of hamburger patties and the meat used to make them. Nowadays we read about bugs being used for red coloring in milkshakes and a handful of other gross facts about the food we love so much.

So, how about some things you may not know? These ones are guaranteed NOT to make you disgusted with yourself the next time you chow down on a super-sized combo meal.

1. Ronald Had A Funky Hat

After Santa Claus, Ronald McDonald is the most recognizable figure in America. In 1963, Ronald’s first look had him with spaghetti-like hair, a red and yellow striped suit and with a tray with hamburger, fries and a milkshake worn as a hat and around his waist.

Two years later, Ronald got a major makeover which gave him the look for which he is best known. 2014 gave Ronald a new wardrobe: though he’s kept his big red shoes, instead of the old jumpsuit, he now sports yellow cargo pants and matching vest over a red and white striped rugby shirt.
