Fast Food Fish Frenzy!
If you’ve been watching any television recently, you may have noticed that some special fish sandwiches are swimming back onto the menu of your favorite fast food joint. It happens annually around this time of year, and if you’ve always wondered why, you’re probably not Christian. Lent is the Christian season of sacrifice, which brings with it an odd tradition that forbids eating meat and encourages you to kill as many fish as possible for fast food sandwiches. The Catholic church specifically discourages eating meat on Fridays during the 40 days of lent, which is actually credited as the impetus for Mcdonald’s Filet-o-Fish being created.
It’s big business this time of year, and many fast food chains have joined in with their own sandwiches. Because nothing says sacrifice like eating a sandwich that you purchased at a drive-thru. Many of these offerings are seasonal items and advertised heavily during lent. Back in 2015, we scoured the sites of our favorite fast food chains to find their fish sandwiches and have come up with the collection below. As you can see, there are many sandwiches to choose from in our Fast Food Fish Frenzy and we’ve listed our clear favorite first. So enjoy your sacrifice, or sin along with us and have a tasty burger instead.
