After a long day, sometimes we don’t feel like cooking and we find ourselves in the drive-thru at a popular fast food joint. For many of us, this has only become more true as the lockdown has continued, leaving fast food and drive-thru’s some of the last remaining safe forms of escape we have. 

As scrumptious and convenient as a fast-food meal may be, 5 minutes of burger bliss has the potential to sabotage your daily calorie goals. Here is the nutritional information for Canada’s most popular burgers so that you can make a smart choice next time you pull up to the drive-thru window.
