Interesting slide show on some amazing fast foods in other cultures.  Actually more creative than the U.S.A.  A great resource if you travel a lot.  I wonder how healthy they are?  FYI – McDonalds  is set to expand its test of chicken wings called “Mighty Wings” to Chicago after a year of successful testing in Atlanta.The wings are being sold in servings of three, five or 10 pieces with prices starting at $3.

There are 480 calories in  5 pieces and  31 grams of fat.  The good news – no trans fats or sugar, but loaded with sodium at 1450 mg.  I don’t think that includes the sauce.

Compare those numbers with 6 pieces of Chicken McNuggets – 280 calories with 17 grams of fat.  The sodium is much better at 600 mg.  Do we really need more chicken with more calories?
