How did a bunch of staunch Catholics and their Lenten diet help create one of the most popular fast food dishes of all time? Why did McDonald’s ever consider a pineapple sandwich? Do you really even want to know what was on a “Hula Burger?”

This basically counts as going to Church… just so you know. Hallelujah!
