If you’ve ever driven straight to your favorite fast food restaurant after seeing an ad on TV or online, you’ll be able to relate to these fast food fails.
As it turns out, sometimes your order looks nothing like those slick ads!
Fast food advertisements vs. reality
NBC News visited Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonald’s and Subway to compare the items they ordered to the pictures used to promote them, and the results were certainly mixed.
Taco Bell – The Quesalupa featured in the report looked very similar to the commercial, which had lots of melted cheese.
Burger King – After ordering the Angriest Whopper, there was no reason to be angry. The burger looked a lot like the picture, leaving the reporter “impressed.”
McDonald’s – Not as good of news at McDonald’s. The Big Mac they ordered did not measure up to the commercial. It was much flatter and looked dry.
Subway – This is where things really got bad. In the commercial, the meatballs were so big they nearly spilled out of the Meatball Marinara. But in real life, you couldn’t even see the meatballs until you opened the sandwich.
