  1. I buy my chicken whole, 50 lbs at a time straight from Maple Lodge Farms…Takes me an hour to cut it up the way I want it and freezer bag it and that lasts me nearly 6 months (having a chicken meal twice a week)….If you eat more than 2 fast food meals a week. you need to take a cooking course…Or watch more youtube cooking vids and learn how to feed yourself.

  2. They needed at least one or two black person and Hispanic, also Asian person, to make it fair in judging the chicken

  3. Even as a Professional Chef, I sometimes have cravings for Fast Food (probably from my childhood). Big Mac, Filet of Fish from McDonald's and the Spicy Crispy Chicken W/Cheese sandwich from Wendy's are my Go To choices. When I eat these things I'm very aware that it's probably not the healthiest thing for me to eat, but when I get Fast Food, I know this. Don't think that the grocery stores aren't doing the same. Those bags of loose chicken pieces that say "up to 15% broth added" are just the tip of the proverbial Iceberg. As a chef I've noticed the texture of most store bought chicken that's not "organic" has a rubbery texture these days and the taste is flat. The meat also doesn't really have a strong grain pattern either. I'm not an organic buyer, but chicken is the one exception.

  4. That Chef kept making faces when they ate his so he gave it away that it was his so basically they saw that and voted for him ..awkward ….

  5. I don’t eat fast food period. It’s not that difficult to learn to cook. My go-to meal when I’m really hungry and pressed for time is a extra crunchy peanut butter sandwich (whole grain wheat).

  6. “Two thirds of your daily limit of salt”. That nutritionist just lied. You can consume just over 10x that limit & it will have no effect on your health. It all goes in your pee.

  7. I decided to watch this video since I was walking to Subway to grab a chicken sandwich……… let's just say I'm super glad I did

  8. I really thought this video would be a wake up call to subway but 2 years later… still the same boring old quality.

  9. Not real chicken? That's clucked up.

    Is it just me or did the dude next the old lady have like no elbow room?

  10. anybody that actually cooks there own chicken properly should be able to tell how bad those other chicken pieces actually taste

  11. I rarely eat out. I buy all my food from Aldi. No GMO. No artificial flavors, grass fed, organic meat. I cook all my meals at home. Salads. Rarely eat meat. I was over weight after being a nurse for 15 years. I packed on the pounds. I lost over 40 lbs. just by not eating fast food and eating healthy food at home. No fad diets. I didn't even exercise. No pop.

  12. Who on earth does NOT know that fast food products are just pure crap ?
    People who have been living in a cave for a century ?
    Thank you anyway for these documentaries which inform us.
    Comment from France where food is considered as hugely important since we eat 3 times a day.

  13. For crying out loud! SODIUM IS PERFECTLY SAFE! Sodium Chloride (NaCl) IS FREAKING SALT! THESE POOR PEOPLE WERE TRICKED INTO THINKING SODIUM IS DANGEROUS! It's perfectly fine. Just like calories.

  14. Fillers in meat can cause health issues – this is why Celiacs won’t eat anything that doesn’t say gluten-free, even when it’s something like grilled chicken, because who knows what’s inside. “Natural flavors” can include wheat. This is common in sausage, hot dog, bacons, lunch meat, and any other processed or flavored meats. Most people just don’t even realize because they don’t have the health issues and haven’t dug into what’s really inside their food.

  15. Fast Food 🍔 isn't healthy? It's made with processed ingredients? Whaat?! I'm shocked OMG 😱 seriously!!!!

  16. AGAIN: it's not "processed" ingredients that is the problem. Organic foods are processed. You need to process the grass-fed beef with the quinoa (or whatev") to get it into the bowl. SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS, CHEMICALLY SYNTHESIZED and ARTIFICIALLY ENGINEERED are more appropriate words! How come I need to teach yanks/anglos to speak their own language!?!??????!!!!!

  17. 16:31 All approved as SAFE?? How about you call out the many GMOs loaded with BT toxin: canola, corn (maltodextrin, dextrose, citric acid etc.) and soy! Only missing is cottonseed oil, LOL!

  18. The end commercial = Whoa! And here I thought the hoity-toity canucks were supposed to be angels up there, what with their lib presitard, TruduQ! (You read that right!) And here they are, worst scammers than yanks. Tourist tax?? LOLOL! Tax on the sick?! Burn in hell!

  19. Well considering Subway hired someone who they knew is a pedofile to represent their company, it doesn't surprise me that they're questionable in their representing of the food they sell

  20. even 100% chicken now adays can be shite.they can cook the resedue of the bones.sinues and memrane ,cartilage the make it into a paste and can reconstruct a chicken from crap

  21. There's something in Subway bread that makes me very nauseous, Only the bread… and only Subway bread products. Obviously, I don't eat Subway anymore but just thought I'd pass it on after many trials to see which part of Subway's products was making me feel like puking. Now, just the thought of one of those foot long's is enough to turn my stomach. Anyone else found this?

  22. I'm more of a Burger man than a chicken man. I have always loved McDonald's because of the taste of their burgers & fries. Usually when I go to a fast food joint I order two burgers and fries. Usually when I'm at home, I eat chicken patties and popcorn chicken and chicken tenders and tenderloins and pizza rolls.🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔🐓

  23. I keep watching and laughing at the idea that the chicken from a fast-food chain is healthier. There have been several studies that these so-called healthier options are actually worse for you than the regular menu.

  24. Can you folks do a show on Copacabana Steakhouse Rip-OFF Report!

  25. I stopped eating chicken 4 years ago and cow unless it was a fast-food burger 1 year ago… Im vegan now and have never felt so good… I have always been thin until I hit 52 and then I chnaged everything. stop eating that crap if you can.

  26. I worked for one of the suppliers of subways chicken in the usa and we made the long patties shown in video and the strips the grill marks are placed while in the oven and im 99% in America at least the chicken is all chicken unless subway specifically tells them to mix stuff into it since ive never been in the back where they make the chicken ive only seen it cooked and frozen, everyone there eats the chicken the plant produces though. We made all kinds of chicken that I know was 100% real chicken for schools and such but subways stuff is kind of remade into certain shapes or breast is grinded up into massive patties and cooked and partially frozen then diced then frozen solid, that stuff is a pain to make and always leaves a huge mess!

  27. Who cares I still love subway. Honestly if you compare a sub sandwich and everywhere else mentioned here subway is healthier even with the chicken.

  28. Had a Wendy's homestyle chicken sandwich and couldn't eat it. It was still cold and the texture was like tendons. I left a comment on Yelp that it was today's fresh roadkill. This was 2 years ago and haven't been to a fastfood joint since. It's cheeper and tastes better if you cook meals at home. Also, you don't have to wonder if someone spit on your food, stomped on it with shoe, or handled your food with their hands after peeing or pooping and didn't wash afterwards.
