Some of these stories legit freak me out. It makes me sick to think I have eaten some of these foods
Um as someone who worked at dunkin Donuts for 8 months this is utter bullshit.. Our donuts where never ever frozen… sooo i don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about..
I’m not sure what fancy DD you worked at, but my brother has worked there as a manager for 3 years and not once have they ever had fresh, from scratch donuts. They all come as frozen “shells” which are then prepared, filled, and frosted. The finished product isn’t frozen, but the empty/unfrosted dough round is. He’s got frostbitten fingertips to prove it.
I’ve also toured their warehouse and analyzed it in detail for a logistics course and can attest that they most definitely are frozen. Same goes for Tim Hortons. Doesn’t mean that they aren’t any good, they’re delicious! But it’s not economically possible from a time and money stand point for them to do that, given the scale and customer expectations.
As a former employee of McDonalds, I can also tell you to stay the fuck away from McCafe and the ice cream. Literally, never, ever cleaned. Not even once. If you want ice cream, go to Sonic. When I worked there we had to clean and sanitize the shake/soft serve and slushy machine twice a day. The Sonic I was at was so clean and well maintained that you could probably lick the floor and be fine. The health inspector loved us.
Never worked in fast food, but my dad worked for Coke when he was younger and he NEVER gets fast food beverages because he used to see how gross the machines were when he had to go to the fast food places to refill the machines or whatever. It’s been like 25 years since he worked for them but to this day he only drinks bottled drinks unless he’s at a sit down restaurant.
My sister worked for Atlanta Bread Co. and she said their drink machines were pretty nasty too.
Personally it doesn’t stop me because I don’t dwell on it, but I thought I’d put it out there
