On a recent episode of bob’s burgers, the health inspector, who is also a former food and drug attorney, decided that his favorite foods were “bad.” The inspector had his favorite foods labeled “good,” which he then proceeded to eat to prove that he is perfectly healthy, and that there was no way that they were bad. The inspector’s health inspector’s best friend.
To be fair, Bob’s Burgers is a popular chain restaurant with a lot of healthy food choices. I know that they are not alone in this claim, because a few months after our episode aired, the health inspector decided that if he was going to eat a salad he was also going to try the salad dressing.
I remember our episode as a time when we were reminded of how many people like to eat the way that we do and how many of them can’t seem to understand that when they eat the way we eat, it is usually not just healthy. But, I also remember the health inspectors health inspector telling Bobs Burgers that his salad dressing was actually made from the same ingredients that made the burgers.
I don’t think I could go down to the local health inspector’s office and say, “Bobs Burgers sucks, so now you can get your salad with extra dressing.” That would just be a waste of time because I don’t think Bob’s Burgers really sucks, I think they’re making me hungry.
I don’t get it.
Bobs Burgers is a beloved, beloved chain restaurant chain with over 15,000 stores in the US and Canada. The last time I was in a Bobs Burger, the salad dressing was made from orange juice.
So you think the reason Bobs Burgers sucks is because of their orange juice salad dressing? Or because of their hamburgers? I have no clue. I know I will be getting it if I am ever at Bobs Burger (and I do plan to go at least once a week) but it does seem like a waste of time to go down to the health inspection office and say that. You think I care that it might be true? No.
For a company that has a lot of health-related claims, most of which probably are not true, it’s hard to justify the time and effort it takes to go to an inspection office and say “Oh, wait a minute, I can help you there. I’ll get you the salad dressing as a reward for your trouble. That’s how responsible we are.” Bobs Burgers are doing quite a lot of business in the U.S. and Canada.
Its a shame that Bobs Burgers needs to have these claims inspected. I personally would have been happy to help them out. After all, its one of the few companies that is voluntarily disclosing its health status to the public. And as a proud supporter of the American Heart and Stroke Association, Bobs Burgers has been working to improve people’s health all over the world for years.
I was recently informed by my doctor that I have high blood pressure. I was very happy to hear this because my doctor was very happy to tell me that he was very happy to hear. He was also very happy to tell me that his patients were very happy to hear. And so I was very happy to hear him say this because I now know that he was right.
