10 Things You Don't Want to Find in Your Happy Meal

ten foods happy meal grossYou don't have to be a parent to drive through for dinner. But having kids helps justify the decision, especially when they're clamoring for the toys that go alongside their burger. Even the most health-conscious parent gives in to the call of fast food every now and again and lets the kids have the French fries covered in salt alongside the latest action figure. But one family in Sweden got even more than they bargained for at the fast food restaurant Frasses: A swastika tattoo.

Needless to say, I'd be sending that "happy" meal back, even if I'd already eaten the lingonberry jam. Because a swastika has no place in a family dining establishment. The restaurant apologized and blamed China for manufacturing the tattoos they give out to the kiddos. (Although I'm pretty sure people in China know what a swastika is, too.)

Regardless, this major slip-up will have me on alert the next time I pick up food for my kids. I'll be on the lookout for the following:

  1. Fried Butter
  2. Crickets
  3. Ortolan Bunting
  4. Hepatitis
  5. Tequila
  6. Pop Rocks & Coca-Cola Mix
  7. "Funny" Brownies
  8. KFC Double Down
  9. Pussy Natural Energy Drink
  10. Jamie Oliver

And I swear, if I find even one of the above in my child's meal, I'm getting a full refund or I'm suing the pants off of someone. Except maybe Jamie Oliver. As long as he comes to my house and cooks for me, au naturel.

Have you ever found weird things in your fast food?
