What if Eve offered Adam the fruit and he refused to eat it? According to Burger King, all you need to do is slice it up to look like a French fry to tempt the appetite. In late 2007, BK started test marketing apples cut to look like fries and served in “frypods” as part of their kids’ meals.
And now they’ve arrived in Vegas. I suppose some people will applaud BK for offering healthier alternatives, but I just find it disturbing. Why can’t kids just eat apples that look like apples? And really, don’t most kids like apples anyway? It doesn’t strike me as a playful or whimsical way to get kids to eat healthily, like cutting their sandwiches into hearts or stars on occasion. Instead, it just reinforces the supremacy of the French fry. If they could get the average kid to eat asparagus and jicama, then maybe I’d be impressed.
