I’m sure we kind of already knew how fast food restaurants tend to exaggerate the quality and size of their offerings on their advertising, but this photo essay by Dario D is still a fascinating read. I especially liked the comment that McDonald’s Third Pounders burgers, as advertised, wouldn’t fit into the boxes they’re actually served in.

Food photography in general, though, makes compromises, since what looks good in a picture sometimes isn’t possible with actual food. So a question I have is, could you actually make a hamburger that looks just as it does in the fast food advertising and would it be edible? How many calories would it have versus what is actually served?
