1. Right off the bat we can see that Wendy's has the most honest social media representation. That burger in the photo is the actual burger you'll be getting when you order, so in terms of honesty, Wendy’s is the winner.

But this isn't a photo contest so let's get serious.

2. According to the behaviour of these three fast food giants, Burger King's Whopper might be the big winner. Here's why:

Over the years, McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King have all attempted to copy each other’s products. Burger King tried to make their own Big Mac, Wendy's tried to copy the Whopper, and McDonald’s tried to make their own "Whopper Stopper" 6 different times!

On the other hand neither Burger King nor McDonald’s ever attempted to make a square burger, so it’s clear that in their competitor's eyes Burger King's Whopper is the burger to beat.

3. When it comes to taste the results are very different.

Burger King's Whopper is so wet that you need to eat it immediately, otherwise the lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mayo fuse into a disgusting goopy mess.

The Wendy's burger is a bit less messy, but the quality varies a lot depending on which Wendy’s you visit. Sometimes you get a burger that looks exactly like the one in the photo, and sometimes you set a sad, soggy mess.

The McDonald's Big Mac however is the most consistent sandwich of the three. It always tastes exactly the same and the ratio is never off.  McDonald’s bread also seems to have the magical power to be resistant to condiments, so the bread is never soggy.

The big winner is McDonald’s Big Mac. And according to Business Insider the Winner in the United States was also the Big Mac. 

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
