The Waffle House has become a road trip favorite. Mouthwatering hot waffles with scrumptious toppings are America at its best. It was reported that this establishment serves the most waffles per minute nationwide. On average, The Waffle House serves almost 150 waffles every 60 seconds.
The chain claimed that since its opening days in 1955, they have served altogether close to 900 million waffles. Pretty impressive.
They Are Still Chicken
McDonald's delicious chicken nuggets have had more stories behind them than McDonald's restaurants over the years. At one stage, it was thought they were not made of chicken at all, and they were sent to labs to give the verdict. We have conclusions.
Chicken nuggets ARE made of chicken. It might not all be chicken MEAT, but it's 100% chicken. The nuggets contain very little meat, and the rest is a mixture of fat, bones, and tendons.
And What About Strawberry Frappuccino?
Starbucks was founded in 1971, and besides its wonderful cakes and pastries, it is known for its fluffy frappuccinos. The cream and coffee-flavored delight has been a best-seller, however, not many know what it really consists of. Well, at least not until 2011.
Up until 2011, the regulations on beverages and edible goods weren't as strict as they are today. The red coloring in the strawberry frappuccino was sourced from cochineal beetles. The FDA brought this to an end, and today, not only Starbucks but all red food coloring is sourced from carmine, making us feel a lot less guilty when indulging in one of these.
Sbarro's Original Cheese Cake
Sbarro is not only for pizza. It is also the home of the chain's famous delicious cheesecake. One of the main reasons it remained so delicious for so many years is because the founder, Carmela Sbarro, used to make the cakes on her own without using any factory facilities.
It was only when Carmela's feet could not carry her any longer and when the number of cakes exceeded 1000 pieces a week that she realized that she needed help. That's when she turned to a supplier and accepted that the cakes won't be handmade anymore.
Krispy Kreme Is Almost 100 Years Old
In the hot summer days of 1973, Vernon Rudolph brought to life one of America's fast food icons, Krispy Kreme. It first began as a donut supplier for local grocery stores, however, very soon, that was about to change.
The demand was overwhelming, and before Rudolph realized what was happening, the first Krispy Kreme that sold its goods directly to customers was born. The donuts were sold on a sidewall through a window. How sweet.
