“Chick-fil-A, which has been the target of a left-wing boycott campaign due to the problematic socially conservative views of its founder, has absolutely dominated the chicken market over the past decade. The chain’s sale have tripled, and its U.S. market share among chicken-centric restaurants has increased from 18 percent in 2009 to 33 percent, while its chief competitor, Kentucky Fried Chicken, has seen its market share fall from 29 percent to 15 percent over the same period. That’s what winning looks like. Congrats on the boycott, libs! …”
I love Chick-fil-A.
Unfortunately, I have had to cut back on those fried chicken sandwiches and waffle fries. I found that I liked them too much. It’s great food but makes you fat like fried food in general.
Love me some of that “hate’ chicken =D
Don’t forget they are gaining market share while only being open six days of the week.

I know the point of your post was political correctness, however…
Fast food companies do advanced studies on how to make people crave their products. Fatty, bready, and cheesey to make you crave their product when you aren’t there. It fires off receptors in your brain just like heroin does. The FF companies know the effects of their products, do a search on it if you don’t believe me,
I trained myself to think if it comes in a packet with a list of ingredients and preservatives it ain’t food. If we eat whole natural foods like our ancestors did we will look like our ancestors, where a at person was rare instead of the growing majority they are today.
It’s great and tasty.
I haven’t even started to get into Southern cuisine yet. We love our fried foods. Some of that is great like bacon but when you pair it with people being relatively idle and gulping down soda and eating lots of carbs it is devastating to their health. The supermarket is the best example that comes to mind of how we are already coping with an age of abundance.
The chemicals they put into packet supermarket “food” so it can sit on a shelf and not rot, stops your liver functioning correctly. Your liver removes excess fat from your blood. so If it isn’t functioning correctly fat goes on your hips instead of being filtered out of your blood. So it is not just caloric intake and exercise, its about your body functioning correctly.
Another thing that might interest you. I saw a chart that compared America’s weight gain with sugar consumption. When people started drinking bottled water instead of soda to reduce their sugar intake, it made no difference to the national fat stats, they kept increasing each year.
Then they compared it to America’s increase in consumption of cheese and it followed the national weight gain exactly. Americans didn’t used to eat a lot of cheese, but we eat more of it each year.
Cheese is what fires off the herion receptors in your brain, and the fast food companies all know the effects. They try to include it in as many dishes as possible. It is what gives you that warm buzz after you eat their product. It is what makes you want to keep eating.
Good info….especially about the cheese….no matter how healthy you try to eat, aomething gets thrown in there to derail the effort…..fast food places either flood the salads with cheese or flood the dressings w sugar.
@ Wally world- “Fast food companies do advanced studies on how to make people crave their products. Fatty, bready, and cheesey to make you crave their product when you aren’t there. It fires off receptors in your brain just like heroin does.”
Yes, that is accurate.
The McDonalds corporation refers to anyone who consumes their poison not as “customers” but as heavy users of their product.
I assume in the same way oxycodone producers label their consumers.
OyVey, so very “capitalistic”
Chick-fil-A is an interesting study in the winners and losers in today’s economy.
