Fast food chains make a regular appearance in most of our lives, and if they don’t in yours, then good for you! Seriously, what are your secrets? For those of us who do eat fast food more often than we probably should, we know that we each have our favorite places to go to. But have you ever wondered which fast food restaurants would be popular book characters’ favorites? If so, then keep reading to find out!
Peeta Mellark and Panera Bread
Panera Bread. Panera. Bread. Need I say more? Peeta, from The Hunger Games of course, is the boy with the bread. It’s what he knows and what he loves. I think he would have a wonderful time trying every single kind of bread that Panera has to offer. You also wouldn’t catch him ever ordering soup in anything but a bread bowl. With a side of bread. He’d also probably try to start helping the bakers in the back with the bread. Yes, Panera would undoubtedly be his favorite fast food restaurant. (Okay, technically its considered fast-casual, but it still counts to me.)
Annabeth Chase and Chipotle
I’m feeling like Annabeth, from Percy Jackson and the Olympians, would probably very rarely go to fast food restaurants. She knows how bad they can be for your health, plus, there are much more wise ways to spend your money. But when she does go, I think Chipotle would be her top choice. It’s fresh, better for you than a lot of other greasier options, and it is extremely customizable, which is perfect for someone as particular as Annabeth.
Samwise Gamgee and Shake Shack
After everything Sam went through in The Lord of the Rings on his journey with Frodo to destroy the ring at Mount Doom, including only eating plain lembas bread for months, I think he would appreciate just about any fast food restaurant. But I think he would have a special love and preference for Shake Shack. From their famous ShackBurger, to their delicious shakes, to their bacon and cheese fries, Sam would probably have an out of body experience the first time he tried Shake Shack. He might even go as far as to call it the one fast food restaurant to rule them all!
Percy Jackson and Culver’s
While he would have originally gone to Culver’s in hopes that they served blue food, I’m sure he would have been won over by their Butterburgers and delicious custard. Even though blue food is Percy’s favorite, he doesn’t discriminate against good food. The only fast food restaurant he will not tolerate is Long John Silver’s. Percy can’t understand why there would be an entire fast food chain dedicated to eating his poor fish friends. Especially when it doesn’t even taste good! (Sorry not sorry to all you Long John Silver’s lovers out there, if you even exist.)
Queen America and Dairy Queen
America, Queen of Illéa, from The Selection Series would most likely try Dairy Queen to see if it was, in fact, fit for a queen. However, since she spent so much of her life in poverty and often hungry, her standards wouldn’t be as high as someone born into luxury, and I think that she would find their food quite tasty. The blizzards would be her favorite item on the menu (aren’t they everyone’s favorite?) and she would have a special preference for the Royal New York Cheesecake Blizzard.
And those are what I think would be the favorite fast food restaurants of those five beloved book characters! It may not be the kind of food they are each used to, but sometimes fast food is just the way to go, especially when you are in a hurry. Now I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely starving after all of that fast food talk!
