This epidemic has caused many foods and celebrations to seemingly lose their authenticity as many people show up to gathering and events with a store bought snack. In my opinion, this ruins the fun of having a potluck, where everyone brings a dish and everyone shares, style of celebrations.

The movie did a phenomenal job with portraying how the companies work in order to achieve their goal of keeping their fast food in today 's society.
