Ground Rules

  • Food has to be ready in 5-7 minutes
  • Grocery store food does not count as it is pre-prepared and just thrown under a heat lamp
  • Nomination will stick with mainstream fast food chains (rather than local)
  • You can make an argument of dollar value of food to make your case
  • Can be a food or drink
