About This Quiz

In generations to come, you'd better believe that psychologists will be spending time writing dissertations on the way fast food was like a gateway to the human soul.  Oh yeah, there's a lot going on there. Think about it - fast food is an incredible mix of an essential element for life and also a kind of unnecessary, often unhealthy additive to everyday living.  it combines the very thing we need to survive with so much that we feel is unnecessary for survival. Fast food is like the yin and yang of deliciousness. 

Because fast food is such a big part of the world around us, we often don't even think about what our choices reveal. If you love Burger King but hate McDonald's, what does that mean?  If you crave Taco Bell but despise KFC, are you revealing something about who you are?  The answer is yes. Totally. And if you tell us what you like and don't like about the world of fast food, not only will we learn a little about what makes you tick, we'll be able to condense that info into an eerily accurate guess at how old you are right at this very moment.  It may sound unbelievable, but take the quiz and you'll see!
