    I haven't heard that one, but I always thought it was a bit of a confusing line to use anyway.

    Are they trying to say it's 100% beef... as in, not containing anything (in the patty) other than beef and s&p (since they do say they add s&p)... or are they just saying the beef they use is 100% Australian?

    Default Warning Labels On Fast Food

    Don't call yourself stupid. It's because these big companies hid the truth from us about what the nutritional contents of their foods were for years. Now we have all these daily intake labels that still confuse a lot of people.

    Better education on what foods are good and what foods are bad is needed and I think if done properly this way be a way to start the process.

    Junk food is okay in moderation.

    But I'm extremely aware of the nutritional contents of their foods, and even the calorie count of each burger, but I still eat it. I'm not confused, I just like the stuff. I do feel like an idiot, because what educated person would like that stuff really?

    Dunno. I guess they are trying to push that it is "100% Australian" and not imported. Not sure.

    I also heard that Wollies dont freeze and defrost fruit and veggies....but the company they buy off does. Again, not sure if its myth. I think thats for another thread...

    Lots Caz! These people don't make so much profit for nothing, or from dumb people only. It can be addictive... and boy do I want to drive through KFC when I smell that scent driving past

    See, I dont think Im 'addicted' ...I just like the taste and if I want it, I have it. I know it has basically no nutritional value and is full of this that an the other, but I choose to ingest it because I want to.
