From Supersizing to Mini-sizing!
We always hear about how most Americans are on the heavy side, obese or even Huuuge! Well, there seems to be a new trend in the fast food industry. That new trend is mini-sizing. We have all supersized before, and why not. Who wouldn’t want more fries or a larger drink? There’s more to consume and there is more bang for your buck. We have this collective mind set that bigger is better. Now, the mini-sizing option is being offered by places like Dairy Queen. Customers can have the treat that they crave without having to down all of the calories. I think it’s a great idea. I’ve actually enjoyed a mini Blizzard. It was the perfect size and it filled the craving. Take a look at Starbucks…they have a “petite” line of desserts. You may not be able to pronounce all of the drinks or desserts….but you can point like a caveman and nod your head. LOL!!!
Lastly….Even the Big dog is jumping on board. McDonald’s is trying to give the option of a lighter fare….testing out their “chicken bites” and “Angus snack wraps.”
Overall, it’s a good idea. Though, if you want to really be healthy….scrap the super size, skip the mini-size and just exercise!
