My husband said it isn't even flavorful in any sense of the word. This is just.. gross

My husband and I stopped eating fast food all together January 1, 2013. It has been the best decision for us and articles like this give me the strength to overcome the marketing, and memories of fast food. There is nothing good about the items! I can't believe people would have this information at their fingertips and still make the choice to eat it :(
