In my opinion, McDonald’s has the best straws of any fast food restaurant (maybe of any restaurant). I often go there just to get a delicious fountain soda and always find myself amazed at the awesomeness of their straws. When I discovered that my colleague at Lab42 loves Taco Bell’s hot sauce packets just as much as I love McDonald’s drinks, I realized that maybe we don’t just go to fast food restaurants for their main food items. What else do we love about fast food restaurants?
Lab42 surveyed 500 American males between the ages of 18 and 35 (typically assumed to be the target demographic of many major chains) to see if we were surprised by their favorite fast food restaurants, restaurant-going behaviors, or menu choices. In order to take the survey, these American males had to have eaten at one of six popular national fast food chains in the past three months.
We discovered some interesting trends and fun facts about the dudes around us. Check out this infographic to find out how many packets of Taco Bell’s hot sauce are kept at home days after purchase and the latest on the ongoing debate over best French Fries:

This survey was conducted online via social networks from May 18 to May 25, 2011 among 500 males between the ages of 18 and 35 that have eaten at a fast food restaurant in the past 3 months.
