It is being replaced with, “Would you like chips or carrots?”
At recent visits to Cosi and Panera, I have discovered a new phenomenon: America is finally starting to become health-conscious.
Cosi and Panera are two sandwich chains, both of which have stores close to the Northwestern campus. At Cosi, when I ordered a sandwich, I had the choice of chips or carrots. Panera offered me four choices with my sandwich: a French baguette, a whole wheat baguette, chips, or an apple.
And apparently, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and other fast food stores are also offering more healthful options.
What is this country coming to?
I’m not saying that I’m the healthiest person ever. And really, I’m not going to pick the healthful option each time (at Cosi I got the carrots and at Panera I got the French baguette: You win some, you lose some). But it’s just nice to know that if I want it, I can have it.
Kudos to you, American food joints. Together, we can fry unhealthful foods.
