Proof

Really most food you see in pictures isn't even edible. Everything you see on a hamburger, drink, nacho platter, bowl of ice cream, etc was strategically placed there by hand by food stylists. They get paid A LOT for presenting you with tasty-looking lacquered chicken.

Most of the time ice cream in pictures is really Crisco.

Yeah, I remember when I first tried KFC's Famous Bowl I was pretty scared to eat it for awhile.

Wow, those sandwhiches look more banged up that usual, but yes otherwise that is a perfect representation. Still, I am hungry now... damn.

Yeah, I don't think they always look as bad as -those- pictures, but ... still no surprise really.

Mr. Ward, my old Workman teacher used to work for fast food commercials, and told everyone what the food is ACTUALLY made of.

Its actually just clay and other materials to actually make it LOOK like food.

Google it sometime, its there somewhere.

I always knew they never really looked like their ad counterparts. I looked at the food reviews, as well.

Wendy's got the highest rating.

Damn straight!

I noticed this a while ago. Especially when I was young and still ate fast food. I would ask my dad why it never looked as good in real life and he would tell me "It's all about the outside son."

It looks like they tampered with those sandwiches to make them look worse, but point taken.

Suprisingly...

Except for the hamburgers, I thought that the real thing looked better than what was advertised. I would eat it.

Although, the taco things need more sour cream.

Some of those really do look tampered with as I swear I've seen some of those look better than they portrayed it.

The chicken bowl looks like they brought it home and stuck it in the microwave while a couple of the hamburgers look a little smashed.

Otherwise, the Subway sandwich looks right, as do several of the sandwiches. I can't speak for the chili salad as I rarely hit up Wendy's for anything more than 99 cent nuggets.

Yeah, all of those sandwhiches looked like they were at the bottom of the carry out bag with the rest of the order on them. I never had a arby melt that looked like that, or even a bigmac that was that horribly jacked up.

I would also agree on the fake food they use to take those pictures, but what do you expect? Even if it was a real piece of food in that picture, they had the best quality control people to make it just perfect. If they took that long to make every piece of food that perfect looking, we would wait forever for our food to be done.

But I digress, food is food. As long as it doesnt taste bad and whatnot, I am eating it

Well my subway was extremely tasty. And it didn't look half bad. It wasn't full and exploding with meat like in the picture but it certainly looked delectable. I guess it depends on who makes it and such.

Actually, none look tampered to me, I've had orders look about as bad as all those, except for the stuff in bowls because I never order non-sandwiches at fast food places.

In fact, the first one on the list, the Arby's Beef and Cheddar? If I didn't know better, I'd think that was a picture of a lunch I had a few months ago (yes, my memory's freaky about food...)

Still tasted good.

I believe it. Even though most of these things look gross they still all taste pretty darn good. Of course you have to like the food for it to taste good. But I have eaten some things that look really nasty but they taste extreemly good. Nachos are a good example. With guacamole, sour cream, tomato's, beans, and cheese all put on top of chips some of them looked pretty gross. However they were some of the best I have ever had.

Actually, on the rare occasion that I go fast food, it looks pretty good, tastes decent enough.

They've got the right idea, though. Making food look all pretty and stuff. Makes you want to eat it...

But if it was made the same every time, then I would start to wonder if it was frozen perfectly and then just zapped to perfection. Which I guess wouldn't too much of a bad thing.... hmm..
