About This Quiz

Fast food restaurants are a dime a dozen and it seems like new restaurants are popping up every day. But as with everything else in life, people will always have their favorite ones. We can go even further and say that even those favorites have favorite meal items. Why do you think some foods are so well-known. It's because they either taste really good or the company has made a point to market that particular food item to the point where people remember it, or both. And we want you to try to tell us where some of these favorites come from.

It is pretty evident that the Whopper is made by Burger King and that Popeye's is known for their biscuits, but can you tell us where the Blizzard, Frisco Melt, McNugget, Double Double and the Cheesy Gordita Crunch are from? You can prove your knowledge if you take this quiz.  All you'll have to do is look at each picture carefully and make a guess at which fast food restaurant it's served.

We'll be impressed if you get even half of these questions right. So sit down, tuck in and have a go at this quiz. We can't promise that you won't be hungry when you're done.
