Recently, McDonald's created headlines when a leaked internal memo outlined the company's plan to attract Millennials to the golden arches. According to the McMemo, Millennials (aged 18-32) prefer healthy foods with high quality, fresh ingredients. That's right, some people actually like food that doesn't suck... and McDonald's is just now realizing it.
So what is McDonald's doing with this revelation? Well, they've created a new product to win the hearts of Millennials: the new Premium McWrap. The memo proudly calls the McWrap a "Subway buster" and claims that a full 22% of McWrap customers would have gone to Subway had the McWrap not been on McDonald's menu.
Is the McWrap actually healthy? Does its calorie and fat content really compare favorably with Subway? There's only one way to know for sure... to the nutrition facts we go!

For a limited time, Arby's will be serving up their famous roast beef on King's Hawaiian sweet roll buns. If you've ever had a square, buttery dinner roll from a cafeteria, odds are it was a King's Hawaiian roll. For those who haven't had the pleasure, the King's Hawaiian website describes their rolls by saying that they are fluffy and moist and that "you can taste the aloha inside". Um... delicious? (sorry I don't know what "aloha" tastes like)
In addition to being served on these aloha-filled buns, the King's Hawaiian Roast Beef Sandwich has 1/3 more roast beef than an Arby's Classic Roast Beef Sandwich. Is a sweet roll and extra beef not enough to please you? Well then the King's Hawaiian Roast Beef and Swiss Sandwich is for you! It adds Swiss cheese, pickles and a creamy Dijon sauce.
So what kind of nutritional punch do these King's Hawaiian Roast Beef Sandwiches pack? Are they loaded with calories? Are they a healthy lunch option?

Does removing the yolk from the Egg McMuffin actually have a significant impact on the nutrition facts? It actually does.Keep reading to learn about the nutrition of McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin.

Mark your calendars, because according KFC, April 14, 2013 will be “the greatest day in chicken history”. That's right, this Sunday KFC will turn the chicken world on its head as it releases its new Original Recipe Boneless Chicken.
Boneless chicken? Is that even possible? KFC claims it is. Their scientists worked around the clock to find a way to remove the bones of the chicken, using a process that I can only assume involves bone-melting lasers. Or magic. Or maybe they just cut the chicken meat off the bone... you know the same process used to make this boneless chicken. Or this. Or this. Or this. Maybe this boneless chicken isn't as revolutionary as KFC would like you to think.
Besides not having bones, what do you need to know about this new wonder of the chicken world? Well it comes in either white or dark meat varieties and it's seasoned with the Colonel's Original Recipe of herbs and spices, breaded and fried.
Is the new KFC boneless chicken healthy? How does the nutritional value of the boneless chicken compare to the original bone-in chicken?
