I may never look at fast food the same again...... this brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "enjoy in moderation". If you're curious about any fast food joints you may frequently visit, this should help you make more informed decisions next time you look at their menu...(or maybe, you won't visit again?)...just wanted everyone to be able to make fast food choices that are right for you, regardless of your reasons. Obviously, many authorities would agree, fast food itself, is not a good choice for a healthy diet, but, again, in moderation...please, just don't try to live on the stuff.
After many hours of internet searches, this is the most complete list (no, it's not all of them) of the major fast food franchises that I could compile, so, lots of info...don't try to read it all in one sitting...trust me...just read a few you do visit, then whatever you're curious about (for alternatives?) later.
Nutritional info for the major US fast food franchises...on the upper left column, you will see an index for many major franchises. Click on the link, and it will show the menu items and nutritional info:
Individual franchise ingredients listings: note: for some sites, you may need to scroll down almost to the bottom of the document to view the actual ingredients in a specific prepared food item, as it may be combined with menu and nutritional value info, which appears first, at the top of the page.
Baskin Robbins: (index found in upper left column)
Blimpies: (unable to locate any ingredients info...broken page links, moved page, etc, on every seach, with exception to their main page and embedded links..sort of raised a red flag in my mind)
Dairy Queen: (unable to locate any ingredients info)
Godfather's: (very little ingredients info found for this franchise to date)
Godfather's gluten-free product release statement (03-23-09):
Quizno's: (not found in main page above...I had to dig a deep hole to hit this board message):

Some dated, but interesting info on MSG which popped up while I was searching for Taco John's ingredients listings:
