If you've ever been curious why your car seems to steer itself into the Chick-fil-A parking lot every time you drive by one, it's the chicken. But while that's no mystery, you might be surprised at all the preparation and meticulous execution that goes into the poultry. This is exactly why that chicken tastes so darn good.
It doesn't take a food scientist to figure out that a good chicken sandwich starts with a good piece of chicken. While some fast food giants have come under fire for the chicken they use, Chick-fil-A claims to use only the best chicken when creating its menu. According to the company's website, they refuse to ever use chicken meat that's been ground or separated, and all their chickens are raised cage-free and without any added steroids, hormones, or antibiotics.
Aside from that, Chick-fil-A chooses smaller chickens because they result in better tasting and juicer meat. According to David Farmer, Chick-fil-A's vice president of menu strategy and development, "The industry has gone to a larger bird because if you're a chicken producer it's more efficient to grow a bigger bird. But we don't like bigger birds. We like the texture that comes from the smaller bird. We want the tenderness of that meat."

Onions contain sulfur—that stinky chemical behind a myriad of unpleasant smells, like rotten eggs. They also contain an enzyme called synthase. Cutting into the onion forces the sulfur to react with the synthase, resulting in a chemical compound called syn-Propanethial S-oxide. That compound creates a gas that floats upwards and triggers your tear ducts.
…and there you have it. Click here on how to cut an onion so you don’t cry.

When you visit Panera, do you expect all their menu items to be freshly prepared? If the answer is yes, we'll let you in on a little trade secret: Some of Panera's menu items aren't half as fresh as you think.
You've heard the claims:
"When Panera began, we decided to get up every day and bake fresh bread from fresh dough."
But is it true? Well, it turns out the crew at Panera really does bake their bread on site, but the dough reportedly isn't made from scratch on the premises. Every day, prepared dough is evidently delivered by truck from a source close to the restaurant, and it may or may not be frozen. A former employee told Refinery29:
"[The frozen dough came] from a town about an hour away."
If it's any consolation, editors at Refinery29 mentioned that some Panera policies and practices have changed since that comment was made. But as recently as 2018, a supposed former Panera manager said something very similar on Reddit, writing that:
"Dough is sent fresh nightly from a regional facility and baked fresh every night for the next day."
So… close enough?
