National Fast Food Day

National Fast Food Day is celebrated on November 16 in America. The holiday embraces the very food your mind and stomach demand! Burgers, french fries, pizza, nuggets, sodas… While this may not be the healthiest product, it is simply impossible to pass it by. Even if you are on a diet, you can relax today!

History

After the First World War, cars spread among the population, so there was more demand not for homemade, but for street fast food, which would always be available. This is convenient when traveling out of town or on long journeys: you can easily drop into a cafe and order a delicious snack or a full meal.

White Castle is an American hamburger chain with 377 locations in 13 states. The first restaurant opened in 1921, but there was not much choice then. Full-fledged work began in 1950. Since that moment, the love for fast food has spread all over the world: now it is difficult to find a corner on earth where there is no such harmful (according to nutritionists), but such delicious food.
