You asked Jiz, but I can do it. Here it is, food porn, straight off their website:

I may be getting old but i don't remember any roast beef sandwich looking like this ever from anywhere.

Jiz, when you get a Hardees roast beef could you please post a real pic so i can relive old times?

Well of couse you didn't, I said it was "food porn." It's simulated food to make it look good. Now, federal law requires the food actually being advertised to be real, but not to anything accompanying it. And you would not like the food they're photographing.
It might be sprayed with hair spray to get it to set just right.
In the case of a cereal ad, the "milk" being poured over it is probably watered down Elmer's Glue.
A donut and coffee? If the donut is what's being advertised, it must be real, but the "coffee" might be 10W40 or Mobil One synthetic motor oil to get the most photogenic black coffee. If it's advertising a coffee and donut, then the coffee also has to be real, but the "cream" in the coffee might be off-white paint.

Food being photographed for advertisements is anything but realistic.

Detroit pizza from Pizza Hut. If this is in any way representing real pizza from Detroit then I have yet another reason to never go there.

Taco Bell Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito

Image

Note: Pictured is the "spicy" version where they add jalepenos to the outer cheese. I did not get this version.. and opted to use a couple of "Diablo Sauce" packets instead.

This actually turned out to not completely be BS! Taco Bell has been running a commercial for this thing almost non-stop lately featuring 2 Asian dudes dressed up like orcs for some reason. I guess the propaganda got to me, so I decided to give it a try today.

It was surprisingly good and tasted exactly like I expected it to after reading the ingredients; cheap ass steak, rice, nacho sauce, chipotle sauce, a little bit of sour cream, bits of red crispy things, and more cheese. This thing is huge too and well worth the 5.99 as far as filling you up. I shared some and still got super full eating 3/4s of it and a taco.

Did ZERO trauma to my stomach, which says a fuck ton for any fast food item. Not even gas. Today all I had to eat was a granola bar before doing 2 or so hours of moving leaves around. Was totally starving by the time I got to Taco Bell.. and part of me was questioning if this was a good idea. It was! I could see how perhaps a sloppy Taco Bell might fuck up the portions and such though so I would recommend doing like I did and eating it there instead of to go. If anything, so that the crispy bits will still be crispy or you can walk it back to the counter for a re-do if they massacre it.

OH Btw Casual Observer dude.. I noticed my local Hardees at this time only has the "Big and hot ham and cheese" buuut I'm pretty sure the one in or near Richlands, NC which I pass thru on the way to my beach place still has this item as well as on-the-bone fried chicken. I've been meaning to stop in there to relive the fried chicken from the late 80s/early 90s for years. It's rare you find a Hardees still serving it but it happens in communities that lack other chicken joints like KFC, Bojangles, Church's, etc.

Why does this remind me of Lou Bega singing out a listing of all the women he's been with in Mambo Number Five?
A little bit of cheap ass steak in my life
A little bit of sour cream by my side
A little bit of crispy things are all I need
A little bit of rice is what I see
A little bit of chipoltle sauce in the sun...

Because every post reminds you of a peripherally related (if at all) song lyric.

Please don't say that, because...
