Is it because their lives are so busy they can not sit down to a proper meal, even then do they call a proper meal some thing that is out of a packet or tin. I think most fast food tastes disgusting, years ago fish and chips were a Friday night treat but now the vendors have lost the art, it seems to me they only wrap them in two layers of paper to soak up all the grease rather than keep them warm. A burger from a fast food place only tastes of the relish, what is in the so called beef burger i guess is any thing but lean beef. When on very rare occasions i go to the supermarket, i see trolleys piled high with packets and tins of so called food, i would not call it food i would call it a concoction of ingredients that sellers can legally pass on as food, it seems modern man expects to eat gunge that has passed through a grist mill and needs the services of a chemist to add flavour, and may be the packaging costs more than the ingredients. But i have worked in the food industry for over 20yrs so please keep tucking in or i will be jobless.
