I was already horrified by #11. I'll certainly be paying more attention to what I'm drinking at restaurants in the future. These drinks are simply deplorable!

Most of those you can tell are complete vile shit just by looking at them.

The only ones of those we might get are the Star Bucks ones.

But I wouldn't know because like KFC, Pizza Hut, Subway, Mc Donald’s and pretty much all the other American brands... I've never had it.

I know cheap shitty food for zitty, over weight, chain smoking ugly single mothers on benefits pushing ugly babies in ugly third-hand baby strollers when I see it.

That site has some huge gripe against calories. It mentions nothing about how they taste like.

I don't care if it has 2000 calories. If I go out at morning and run for a day with some friends and come back at night and want a 2000 calorie drink, I drink it. I just want to know if it tastes good or not.

What if I split this with 3 other friends? that's 500 calories each, not that much.. Is it still a bad drink? Why?

What a bunch of anti-corporate crap going on in that site.

Yes, that's why they give corporation-produced alternatives to each of the unhealthy drinks listed: Because being healthy automatically equates to being anti-capitalist. :roll:

Please use some common sense before jumping to conclusions.

Funny story, they stopped selling soda at my high school and only sold SoBe. Cuz its healthier.

My favorite part is how most of these 'drinks' are sold as health drinks. Isn't that sad? Should that even be legal?

Jersey still doesn't have any of those chains then?
They didn't when I was last there (15 years or so ago)

there's nothing better than a subway at 2am coming out of the student bar.

I wouldn't eat these things now but they're an integral part of childhood!

But Subway isn't necessarily an unhealthy place to eat, depending on what you get.

Here's what this site says:
Quote
If Jared was able to shed 245 pounds on his own Subway diet, than surely you can find a decent meal to keep your gut in check. There's one big problem with Jared's story though: It misleads people into believing that they can do no harm in the sub shop. Researchers call this the "health halo," and affected patrons tend to reward themselves with extra cheese, mayonnaise, and soda, none of which would have helped Jared lose a single pound. Avoid the halo shine and you'll be fine at Subway.

SURVIVAL STRATEGY
Don't order any sub with meats other than ham, turkey, roast beef, or chicken. Then load it up with veggies and try not to spoil it with fattening sauces and dressings (remember, calorie counts at Subway don't include cheese, mayo, or dressings). If six inches isn't enough to fill you up, order a cup of soup or double up on the meat—both of which are vastly healthier options than going for the full footlong (even if it is just five bucks).

We do,
KFC, Pizza Hut, Mc Donalds, Star Bucks and a few others but I really don't like them... I would much rather have something from a local place like 'Joshuas' they do the best Bacon, Egg, Cheese burgers ever... Real burgers not that shit that looks like its been sat on from Mc Donalds.

But the only chain place I really really like to eat at is Pizza Express fuck their pizza is amazing...

Hey if you would rather eat Mc Donalds then a sandwich with mayonaise in it...so be it.

But until you have platted bacon you know nothing about food.

MCd's also puts disgusting amounts of mayo on everything. I like actual restaurants, not fast food as well.

I don't know if its 'healthier' but it taste way better.

I was just pulling your leg, I hate McDonalds a lot too. I prefer normal restaurants, too.

Though, I gotta admit I have a soft spot for Pizza Hut. Their deep dish crust is amazing and their chicken wings are maybe the best I have ever had.

I have a soft spot for Wendy's and Arby's. Don't have them much (maybe once a year) but they are mm-mmm good.

I haven't been to either restaurant in years, though I do like both of them. I can't remember the last time I had a roast beef sandwich or a Frosty.
