Happy National Fast Food Day

 

Here are today’s five things to know about fast food:

Today’s Food History

  • 1620 The first corn (maize) was supposedly discovered (by European settlers) by some Pilgrims led by Myles Standish, while exploring the area near Provincetown, Massachusetts. They named the spot Corn Hill.
  • 1867 Leon Daudet was born. French journalist and novelist, well known gastronome of his time.
  • 1913 The first volume of Marcel Proust’s ‘Remembrance of Things Past’ was published. On January 1, 1909, he ate a piece of tea-soaked toast whose taste caused a flood of childhood memories. In his 7 volume allegorical novel Remembrance of Things Past,’ the character Swann has a similar experience when he bites into a lemon cookie (a madelaine) which brings on a similar flood of memories. This is one of the most widely quoted allusions in literature.

Happy Fast Food Day!

Consider this a good time for that ‘cheat’ day

#nationalfastfoodday


Here are today’s five thing to know about McDonald’s:

  1. Antarctica is the Only Continent without a McDonald’s
  2. They Serve 46 Million People Everyday
  3. McDonald’s has served 100 Billion Burgers and Counting
  4. In England, you will find a McDonald’s location that is housed by an extremely old building. In fact, one of the walls of this location dates back to the 13th century. It’s rare for McDonald’s to have historic locations here in America. Americans are known for building bigger and better things. Even the location that housed the first McDonald’s drive thru was tore down and rebuilt.
  5. The most popular international McDonald’s location is located in Moscow. The location is found on Pushkin Square and serves an outstanding number of people each day. In fact, this one location serves an amazing 40,000 people each day.
