They Stole My Idea
"Burger King pledged Wednesday to offer healthier fast-food items for American children under 12, with plans to sell and market flame-broiled Chicken Tenders and apples cut to resemble thick-cut french fries....The fast food chain is also developing what it calls BK Fresh Apple Fries. The red apples are cut to resemble french fries and are served in the same containers as fries, but they are not fried and are served skinless and cold."

I just want to say (and most of my sisters can back me up on this), I had this idea years ago. I used to take an ordinary egg slicer and make french-fry-esque apples slices, which I would eat plain or with peanut butter. I even called them "apple fries."
Man, I coulda been makin' millions with that.
