Fast Food Fish Friday Choices

I’ll have to find a link to the story, but it was just revealed that subway tuna is not actually tuna, but rather a combination of all kinds of disgusting things. Again, I’ll post the link when I find it, but a quick Google search may reveal the scandalous story.

I saw that.  It looks and tastes like tuna to me.  If it's fake, they did a good job of it.

For a fast food fish choice for Friday, and there's nothing I like better than seafood, I might have to go with Burger King's, which used to be called A Whaler.

We often have Popeye's or Church's fish filets. We used to do Long John Silver's, but the one closest to us closed and hasn't reopened. 

Lately we don't eat out as much though. I have to be careful with my diet when I'm pregnant, so these days it's usually lemon rosemary catfish or blackened shrimp + rice for fish options made at home.

So not at all different from their "seafood" sub which is just random fish parts formed to look like crab meat (I still like it). As for the tuna, I mean, I hate tuna salad already as it is, so that only solidifies my opinion.

Tuna (pre-cooked and either canned or bagged) is sort of nasty to begin with, so as long as it doesn't contain meat, I'm not sure I'd consider myself deceived if I ordered this...

Here's a new one to try if you live near a Popeye's. It launched yesterday, just in time for Lent, which I doubt is a coincidence.

Popeyes has a new fish sandwich, but can it top that viral chicken magic?

As far as my choices, I'm with Jack. Of course, here in Wilber, I'm never out and about in such a way that I can't just come home to eat. I can walk across the entire town in about 15 minutes! But, if I'm somewhere else, Filet-O-Fish or Subway tuna sub. However, the nearest Micky D's is 10 miles away in the next town north. We do have a Subway here in town, but we quit eating there last year after an absolute customer service fiasco. Here's a blog post I wrote explaining what happened.

Why I Won't Be Eating at Subway Again

Here's the end of the post:

In other words, they are so dedicated to customer service that they have an auto generated, boiler plate response designed to thank people for being loyal customers who have just informed them that they will no longer eat at a Subway restaurant!

Don't you just LOVE corporate America and its 'screw the customer' attitude?

Nah, midwest.  If I lived on a coast, I'd probably try to find it fresh rather than buying frozen at a warehouse store.  :)

I just asked because people seem to have no idea what Old Bay is if they aren't from somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic.
I thought he was from Maryland too. (Hi, from Maryland. **waving**) I feel unexplainably territorial about Old Bay. Haha

You can even buy it in little, rural towns in SE Nebraska. Wilber's population is about 1,700 and our grocery, the Food Mesto, has it on the shelf.

Now I feel guilty about the lobster tails we had last Friday even though they were on deep discount.  Will definitely tone it down during Lent though I think lobster and calamari, for that matter, never used to have quite the cachet (and price) in the past.  

My brother-in-law from SoCal introduced me to Old Bay.  Not sure where he picked it up…maybe from a fishing trip with some Marylanders...
