We’re building the A-Z of the fast food world; if you’re ever confused by an acronym, saying or fast food slang – we hope this list can come to the rescue. Drop us a line here if you think there’s something we need to add to the dictionary!
Baglers – Every looked longingly at your empty fry packet, then looked down into your takeout back, only to find leftover fries – eyes wide open in joy? Those forgotten fries are known as baglers, and many fast food aficionados praise their surprise existence.
Chicken Sandwich Wars – This epic fight for supremacy started in 2019 when Popeyes wowed with their crunch-tactic fried chicken sandwich. They battle has been fiercely contested ever since with virtually every major fast food brand getting in on the action. We track every shot fired and report on the war here.
Cridges – The Habit Burger put forward this term in early 2021, as a way to describe the crevices and crinkles that fried food lovers crave – specifically with fried chicken sandwiches.
LTO – You’ll see this acronym all through the year. LTO? Limited Time Offer. LTO’s are the time limited specials you will see on fast food menus through the year. Think McDonald’s McRib or Shake Shack’s Korean Fried Chicken. LTOs might be a one time only affair, or they might come back time and time again.
