Something very interesting I heard last night about, for example, 7-11s and the like stores here in Japan.
Everyone knows their usual “grill” menu in America- taquitos, hot dogs, etc. And we all know that back in the States, that stuff can sit there all day if no one buys it and still be sold later. Not in Japan.
Stuff like corndogs and other grilled items will await potential saviours for up to 3-4 hours, after which they’re all sent on their way to trash. Fresh new recruits replace them, and cycle begins once again.
Besides the fact that there isn’t any chemical sugar added to these goodies, that’s what I can quality even in fast food.
