Business Insider recently served up a list of the most popular fast-food chains in the U.S., put together by food-industry research firm Technomic; McDonald's rated the number-one slot. And in her own analysis of that fast food list, Jenn Wohletz confessed to having contributed to the financial health of some of those enterprises -- but has also eschewed others in favor of her own health and well-being.
I used to love fast-food in my twenties, when I'd drop a stupid amount of cash in Taco Bell, Pizza Hut or Burger King after nights of partying. These days, I prefer to eat less junk and spend more money in the local restaurants. I won't ever trash these joints, though. There's a lot to be said for cheap, fast and tasty.
Do you have something to say for cheap, fast and tasty? Post it below.
