Want a burrito from the Panda Express?  No Problem… but only in Cali

Want a burrito from the Panda Express? No Problem… but only in Cali

I think it’s safe to call Panda Express “inauthentic” Chinese food. And now, we can call it inauthentic MEXICAN food too.

Because there are four Panda Express locations in southern California that are now serving ORANGE CHICKEN BURRITOS. The burrito shell is a scallion pancake, and you fill the burrito with rice or chow mein, orange chicken, and toppings.

There’s no word on whether they plan on taking this nationwide.

A Woman Sues KFC Because Their Buckets Aren’t Overflowing With Chicken Like in the Ads

A Woman Sues KFC Because Their Buckets Aren’t Overflowing With Chicken Like in the Ads

By the time you’re like six years old, you figure out that fast food in real life looks NOTHING like it does in the commercials.  In ads it looks beautiful and delicious . . . in real life it looks like glistening squashed roadkill.

A 64-year-old woman named Anna Wurtzburger from Hopewell Junction, New York has apparently managed to live for seven decades without figuring that out.

She recently got a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC, but when she got home, she found it wasn’t BURSTING with gorgeous pieces of fried chicken like in the photos.

Quote, “They say it feeds the whole family, they’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken.  You get half a bucket!  That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family.  They’re small pieces.”

She called KFC’s corporate offices to complain, but when they kind of blew her off, she decided to SUE.  She just filed a $20 million lawsuit against KFC for false advertising.

Something tells me this is NOT like the time Subway got in trouble for making footlongs that weren’t a foot long.  KFC called the lawsuit, quote, “meritless.”

A Guy Lost 140 Pounds by Eating Chick-Fil-A

A Guy Lost 140 Pounds by Eating Chick-Fil-A

Whenever you hear about someone losing a ton of weight by eating fast food, people always compare them to Jared from Subway. It’s safe to say we will NEVER make those comparisons again. Do NOT be like Jared from Subway.

There’s a 25-year-old guy in Denver, Colorado named Alton Ward who lost 140 pounds in one year, just by eating Chick-fil-A.

He says when he was at Texas A&M University four years ago, he was 355 pounds. He says he tried Jenny Craig, Atkins, no carbs, juice diets, and every other thing . . . but none of it worked.

But there was a Chick-fil-A on campus, and he liked their food. So he started working out, and he’d eat Chick-fil-A once or twice a day.

He’d go for their healthier stuff, like grilled chicken wraps and sandwiches, soup, and salads . . . and over the course of the year, he dropped 140 POUNDS.

Now it’s four years later, and Alton says he’s kept the weight off. He still eats at Chick-fil-A because, quote, “I was on my way to a heart attack or just having a stroke or diabetes . . . it’s literally helped me change my life.”

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

There are hundreds of restaurants around the country with extreme eating challenges. Usually you have to finish, like, a five-pound hamburger to get a t-shirt or something. Forget about that. THIS is a real prize.

A Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, New York called Don Chingon has a new eating challenge that’s probably the hardest in the world . . . but it definitely has the most lucrative prize.

If you can finish a 30-POUND BURRITO in one hour, they’ll make you an OWNER.

The burrito uses a tortilla with a diameter of about three-and-a-half feet. It’s stuffed with chicken, steak, carnitas, chorizo, cheese, rice, beans, and salsa. Oh, and you also have to drink a margarita that’s made with a ghost pepper.

You can’t take a bathroom break or throw up, and it costs $150 just to try. But if you succeed, you become a 10% owner of the restaurant . . . which could be worth some serious cash over time.

The team at Don Chingon says they felt like ownership was the only fair prize. Quote, “If you’re going to gain 25 to 30 pounds in a single sitting, you deserve real compensation.

“Some restaurants put your name on the wall . . . we’ll GIVE you the wall.”
