Out of the deep fryer

Raymond Chen

McDonalds anonunced that it would no longer offer “Super Size” on its menu. The ostensible reason was that the addition of newer healthier options didn’t leave room on the menu for “Super Size”. This was of course laughable on its face. Now it’s even more laughable, because it turns out that the so-called “healthy” options are even fattier than the burgers. You can see for yourself on McDonalds’ own Interactive Nutrition Counter. A Caesar Salad with Chicken Premiere contains 18.4 grams of fat, compared to 11.5 grams of fat in a cheeseburger.
