Takeaway Truth is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare marketing images to what you actually get served. More often than not, the discrepancy is striking. Here are the best and worst examples of 2018.


At Lifehacker, we consider every day of the year to be International Burger Day. But May 28 is the official day of celebration for burger connoisseurs. To make the occasion, we've assembled some of our tastiest burger posts for you to snack on. Whether you want to know how to make your own McDonald's special sauce or revisit the colon-throttling horror of the "Colonel's McWhopper", you'll find it all here.


Dear Lifehacker, McDonald's and Hungry Jack's both claim that their premium burgers are made from Angus beef. From my understanding, this is just a breed of cow rather than a special cut of meat. Do different types of cow really have unique tastes or is this just a marketing gimmick used to bump up the price of burgers?


Fast Food Face-Off is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare two seemingly identical takeaway products from rival stores to determine which offers the best value. Today: McDonald's Bacon & Egg McMuffin versus Hungry Jack's Bacon & Egg Muffin!


Takeaway Truth is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare fast food advertisements to cold, hard reality. While a little "artistic licence" is to be expected, sometimes the differences between the poster and the real thing are ridiculous. Today, we take a look back at some of the worst offenders of all time. Look upon Ronald McDonald's works, and despair.


Attention fast food-loving cheapskates: Hungry Jack's is now selling 10-packs of chicken nuggets for the absurdly low price of $2.95. That works out to around 30 cents per nugget. To put it another way, you can now buy your breakfast, lunch and dinner for under $9! (Um, don't actually do this.)


There's absolutely nothing wrong with having an occasional fast food blow-out. Some would even argue that it's good for the soul. However, there are some menu items that are definitely best avoided; especially if you're trying to lose weight. With that in mind, here are the unhealthiest products from each of Australia's major fast food chains. (You may be surprised to learn that Subway "beat" McDonald's.)


In recent years, the world's leading fast food franchises have been making a concerted effort to provide healthier eating options to customers. With salad bowls, grilled chicken and low-carb wraps on the menu, the takeaway chains of today look quite different to their '80s predecessors...And yet, there are still plenty of worryingly fat-filled meals on the menu. We trawled through the nutritional info on KFC's, Hungry Jack's and McDonald's websites to bring you the five worst offenders. (If you're watching your weight, these meals are definitely best avoided!)


At the end of last year, we asked our readers to vote for the worst-looking product from Takeaway Truth in 2014: that is, the fast food item that least resembled its advertised likeness. There were several strong contenders but in the end there could only be one "winner". Drum roll, please...


For a limited time, Hungry Jack's is giving away "free" BBQ cheeseburgers to customers in exchange for online feedback. However, there are so many hoops to jump through that the deal is arguably more trouble than it's worth. Read on to see what's required. (You may need a pen and paper.)


Takeaway Truth is a regular Lifehacker feature where we compare marketing images to what you actually get served. On today's menu: McDonald's Sausage & Egg McMuffin, McDonald's Hot Cakes, Hungry Jack's Sausage & Egg Muffin, Hungry Jack's Pancakes and Subway's Shortcut Bacon, Poached Egg and Cheese breakfast sub.
