Restaurants Pretend To Not Know What's In Food

Here are the funny PR responses from when Men’s Health asked the PR people for several different restaurants for the nutritional information of their foods:

Outback: “Ninety percent of our meals are prepared by hand…Any analysis would be difficult to measure consistently.”
IHOP: “We do not maintain nutritional data on our menu items, so I am unable to assist you.”
Hooters: “Because of the millions of combinations available and our desire to frequently give you new menu options, it is impossible to provide accurate nutritional data,”
Fuddruckers: “Providing nutritional info would be “very extensive [sic] and timely.”
Papa John’s: “At this time, we have no additional regular menu items that are targeted toward eating lighter.”
Magginao’s Little Italy: “Sorry for the delay! I had to wait for corporate’s approval. Unfortunately, they have declined to participate.”

So they spend lots of money to focus group every aspect of their business, but don’t know their menu’s nutritional content? We’re not buying it.
