New and Old Fast Food Options on the Menu


Kahri Odum, Contributor

Most of us love fast food. It’s convenient, quick, and cheap. Eating the same burger and fries can get pretty boring after a while. Lucky for us, fast food companies combat our boredom by doing limited-time offers with new menu items or by bringing back retired menu items. If you’re tired of ordering the same old thing, maybe you should switch it up. Here’s a list of some new and old fast-food menu items available:
