Not the Prettiest Burger on the Block...

If you are like me, your expectations of a fast food meal are about as low as they can get. As a matter of fact, I could probably rummage blindfolded through the dented can cart at Aldi’s and come up with a more appetizing meal than some of the menu items at the local McDonalds, Rally's, or the like. However, there are times when you are on the go, in a pinch and find yourself at the drive through window.

When you order, you think about the hamburger you see in the ads, all neat and orderly,like this:

It kind of even looks apetizing, perhaps just reminding you of an earlier time in your life when you were addicted to them without being concerned about all the fat you were eating. Then, to bring you back down from your saturated fat euphoria, you open up the bag to find something looks like it was slopped together in about 2 seconds with no care or consideration, and is visually more in line with the nutritional beauty of the sandwhich like this:



Well, to get to the point, I stumbled across an interesting explanation of the great lengths they go to when getting a hamburger ready for the photo shoot to be used in commercials,magazine ads, etc. It is a 10 step procedure that has pictures along the way. You can enjoy it HERE. Kind of makes me wonder what taco bell goes through to make their crap look edible!!

  • pretty gross isn't it? to see something on TV that looks so good and to think what the heck they've done to it to make it look so good!

  • I actually have to sympathize with the producers of these commercials. I try to take pictures of food I make for my food blog, and it can be very difficult to make delicious home-cooked food look good.
