Employees Reveal What Not To Order From Starbucks, KFCs, McDonald’s and Other Restaurants

You better think twice before ordering any of these products.

Most of us love fast food because it is convenient and tasty. Sure, it is quite unhealthy but millions of customers still love it. For the last 15 years, the rate of consumption of fast food did not slow down. You might not be too health conscious enough to care about what fast food does to your body but if you’d know how the process of making the comfort meal that gets delivered on your table goes, you would probably change your mind about going to fast food chains, like KFC, McDonald’s, coffeehouse chain Starbucks and other restaurants.

On Reddit, employees from the aforementioned food and beverage companies spilled the beans on what not to order in response to a question from another user. And you’ll be surprised your favorite menu might just be on the list.

#1. Secret menus

“Starbucks — don’t order something from the “secret menu”. We sure as s–t don’t know what a Snickerdoodle frappuccino is, as it is not a menu item. Employees would be more than happy to make you a drink if you just explain the recipe rather than the name of it. I’ll make you diabetes in a goddamn cup if you just tell me what you want in there. Just don’t get mad at me for not knowing a whole menu customers created.” – justine7179

“Anything off of the “Hidden Menu.” Most people working don’t know how to make it and you’ll probably just receive a giant glob of assorted ingredients on a bun.” – rps_killerwhale

#2. Salads at DQ

“Salads from DQ are a rip off. They just recently down-sized them while changing the bowl to make it look like the same amount. Over $5 for 3 oz. of old lettuce, cabbage, carrots and even older grilled chicken.” – obeyyourbrain

#3. Tacos at chipotle

“I used to work at chipotle, and never ever ever order the Tacos. You get less than half the regular portions. Instead, order a bowl with whatever you want in it, then ask for the taco shells, hard or soft, on the side.

When i was there, the shells were free to get on the side. Im sure they still are but im not 100% sure” -KourageWolf

Peace Village: North Korea’s Mysterious Fake Town

They’d go this far to make people believe that life in North Korea is perfect.

By

North Korea has always been an enigma - it is a territory shrouded with mysteries and is filled with harrowing tales of hunger, suffering, and fear. Yet the country's citizens hail its ruler and look up to him as if he's the Messiah who will save them from all the darkness in the world.

One village in North Korea seems to beat all the other places in the country when it comes to its mysterious nature. Located in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the border between North and South Korea is the town of Kijong-dong, also known as the Peace Village. It is visible from South Korea and appears just like a normal, quiet village. The North Korean government claims that about 200 people live in the village and that it has the facilities required to support its residents; the small town even has schools and a hospital. When you look at it, it will truly give you the impression that North Korea maybe isn't really as bad as people say it is.

The only problem is that, when you look more closely, you will realize that nobody actually lives there. Yep. Zero. Nil. Nada....
