We’ve all been lectured by nutrition-minded friends about fast food, but when someone who has actually worked in the industry tells you to avoid something, it’s probably wise to heed that advice. And, through one reddit thread, many current and former fast food employees have leaked just such intelligence. Here’s what they say you should never order.
20. Dunkin’ Donuts – Frozen Coffee Coolattas
Donuts are, obviously, covered in sugar, but they’re reportedly not even the most sugary thing on Dunkin’ Donuts’ menu. Yes, its frozen coffee “Coolattas” are apparently loaded with sugar too. Indeed, a large one has 141 grams of the white stuff. But to make it worse, redditor 883Guy claimed that they’re “18 percent cream if you get a coffee one or vanilla bean.”
19. Cookout – chicken strips
Chicken strips are probably one of the most popular items on the Cookout menu, and they’re about to be ruined for you (sorry). According to former Cookout staffer CDC_, the strips take so long to cook that during busy stretches “people would pull them out of the fryers early and just throw them onto a tray. People brought them back for being undercooked all the time. Which tells me, lots of people were probably not paying attention and just stuffing them, half raw, into their facehole.”
