The United States recently lost to Mexico its long-held title as the most obese nation on the planet. Saddened by having been relieved of this crown, we hung our collective heads in shame, only to discover that lost bit of drive-thru burrito stuck in the fold between our chest and full moon of a stomach. See? Every cloud really does have a silver lining, and it’s delicious.
America long held the title due to our twin loves of fatty food and lethargy. Bringing those two passions together in an orgy of cardiovascular disease and ever flatter seat cushioning is the fast food drive-thru. If you have a hankering for a nosh in your Nash, or a burrito in your Buick, then you don’t even need to bother getting out of the car, you can just… drive through.
The thing of it is, most food that may be ordered through a loudspeaker is stuff that’s pretty easy to consume whilst sitting in your ride. Sometimes however, that mix of convenience and cleanliness misses the mark, and the food you desired turns against you even before it gets to your rapidly constricting arteries. That’s why it’s less likely that our Canadian friends would order Poutine in their Porsches. What has been your experience with road food, specifically drive-thru fare, and more importantly, what has been the worst conceived – as far as mess goes – food on the go?
