See How Real Fast Food Looks Shockingly Different Than It Does In Ads

The fast food advertising industry is dedicated to making items appear bigger and better.

The blogger Dario D decided to compare major fast food product advertisements to reality. He posted the results on his blog at Alphaila, along with his methodology.

“After a lifetime of disappointment, bafflement, and frustration with the food, I decided it was time to do a little test, and compare the food you get with the ads,” the blogger writes.

The results are startling.
