A place to ask questions, connect with others, and stay in the know
We had such great participation with our "Fast Foodies trivia event!" Thank you to all who played. Many people answered the bonus question, which leads me to this exciting news…there was a TIE for first place! So, @Matt Lawson and I will come up with something fun and clever to crown the top champion. Stay tuned after the holidays. I'll reveal the two winners in a bit, but first, here are the answers to the Fast Foodies trivia questions:
(The first White Castle opened way back in 1921 in Wichita, Kansas! They sold burgers for 5 cents each.)
(Fast-food chains often have specialized menu items for the countries they are in.)
(In 2015, Burger King created its own limited-edition cologne in Japan which smelled like flame-broiled meat and cost $55 a bottle!)
(Arby's aired a 13-hour and five-minute spot in 2014 in Duluth, MN showing a single shot of a beef brisket being smoked.)
(Carmine is a common ingredient that is used to make the reddish coloring of some menu items and comes from crushing up cochineal beetles!)
(Oddly enough, in 2013 Subway entered the fashion industry with "Project Subway," a competition for designers to create clothes inspired by the Subway brand.)
(It also included buns and cheese that were blackened from bamboo charcoal.)
(The sale of this sandwich is particularly high during Lent.)
(Since 1975, KFC in Japan has offered a $40 Christmas Barrel that has become so popular that they often sell out before the holiday arrives.)
(Pizza Hut delivered a pizza to the International Space Station in 2001 as a promotional stunt. They added extra salt and spices to the slices because space travel reduces the sensitivity of astronauts' taste buds).
(The seller used the money to fund local kids attending a summer camp.)
Now that you know where you stand, it's time to reveal our "tied for first place" winners! @Ashiesh Sharma and @Kathiravan Srinivasan, CONGRATULATIONS! We will do a tie-breaker after the holidays to see which one of you gets to take first place and your choice off the Prize Wall!
Are you all hungry for more? Don't worry! We've got another great Trivia Event coming Nov. 30th-Dec. 2nd, themed "Big Buy Brainteasers," where we'll do all of this again. Be sure to mark your calendars because we LOVE giving out prizes!
