With the chewing gum industry already making their product out of pure plastic, and making over $3 billion dollars in the process, local retailers are starting to take notice.
“We figure that since they make chewing gum out of plastic, why not make our hamburgers and milkshakes out of plastic, too?” said restaurant owner Daren Rains of local Shakes ‘N Burgers in Peroria.
“We figure that we can save an extra 10 cents per semi-happy meal that we offer by going plastic. Now the toys are plastic, the hamburger, fries, and milkshakes will all be plastic. And they taste just delicious, I hear.”
With the Chinese already making plastic rice, plastic hamburgers were not far behind. This has the potential to really make a real difference for the businesses bottoms and lines.
