For years, I have been purchasing something intended to be a substitute for something else. There was no legal, financial, or physical barrier to me purchasing the original. So why didnít I?

Were you, in fact, intending to use the thing you bought as a substitute for the other? or did it have a different use for you?

Is the replacement healthier? Are you allergic to the original?

Are you substituting an ingredient in a recipe with something else?

Would the original food be found on the "food pyramid" in:
Grain?
Fruit?
Vegetable?
Meat?
Dairy?
Other?

Same q's for the substitute food.

Dairy?
Other?

Same q's for the substitute food. Same answer.

Hee! You and the 'cheezburgur'. Oddly, I didn't write this puzzle with you in mind but...YES-ISH for both original and sub.

Doriana
Is the original food a fresh item?
frozen? processed? Same questions for the substitute.
Um, for both - 'fresh' when I got them, probably processed and likely frozen before I got them.

Do you still buy the substitute? No actually...
The original thing? Yes to this though.

did you get teh cheezburgur from one place, and now get it from a different place (but now you've gone back to the first one, judging by ansur to doriana?)

burgers? This one.

Maybe you thought you bought cheese but instead you got cheese analogues? Not like this.

Kayleetonkslupin
a hamburger? Both are burgers.
a burger made with other meat than beef (chicken, fish, etc.)? Nope.
a gourmet cheeseburger (such as you might find at Red Robin?) Nope, but may I just say "Yuuuuum!".

a fast food meal (cheezburgur, fries/other side, drink?) No, but OTRT

did you get teh cheezburgur from one place, and now get it from a different place (but now you've gone back to the first one, judging by ansur to doriana?)
No b/c of an FA here.

HINT:{I realized after I posted this that I'm using the word "substitute" with a specific connotation that might not be obvious at first glance.

By substitute, do you mean that the McD's burger was intended to be like/mimic BK's burger? In much the same way that McD's southern-style chicken sandwich is a intended as copycat of a Chick-Fil-A sandwich (although in reality the McD's so-style chicken don't actually taste anything like Chick-Fil-A's, they just look alike)?

In much the same way that McD's southern-style chicken sandwich is a intended as copycat of a Chick-Fil-A sandwich (although in reality the McD's so-style chicken don't actually taste anything like Chick-Fil-A's, they just look alike)? Pretty much...though since I don't care for either sandwhich, the "substitute" is rather lost on me in that case.

I don't remember the last time I've eaten at either restaurant, and I never, ever order burgers at either one, so I have no idea if these two sandwiches are similar to one another, but...

A RECAP, as requested by the lovely Kaylee kitteh.

For years, I have been purchasing something intended to be a substitute for something else. There was no legal, financial, or physical barrier to me purchasing the original. So why didnít I?

For years Iíd purchased the BigíNíTasty at McDonaldís, which was intended to be like Burger Kingís Whopper.

So why didnít I just buy a Whopper instead of the BigíNíTasty?

It was not because of:
- Ethical reasons
- The product packaging
- The cost of the burgers
- The toppings
- Someone else preferring McDs and dragging me there.

HINT: While the Big'n'Tasty disappeared from menu boards in January 2011, I could not have posted this puzzle until earlier this month.

***** SPOILER *****

As of January 1, 2011, the Big NíTasty was removed from McDonaldís menu. Not being a frequent guest at McDonaldís, I didnít really notice until some months later. It wasnít until I found information about the sandwich on the Internet that I discovered that the burger was devised to resemble Burger Kingís Whopper.

Noel mentioned McDonaldís Southern Style Chicken, which is a pretty obvious answer to Chick-fil-Aís signature sandwich and much like that comparison (why order the McDís version unless you canít get to Chick-fil-A??), when I think about the two burgers, thereís NO competition. If Iím going to eat that many calories, I want a Whopper. I just never realized the two sandwiches had anything to do with each other.

Now that I know itís actually pretty funny. If given the choice, I highly prefer BK and I think itís amusing the McDís burger I liked best was the one modeled on another chainís signature burger.

Being down in North Carolina (but only for a few more days; summer starts soon!), there's a Chick-fil-A almost everywhere. There's even one on Elon's campus.

Well, there is not one here, but there is one in Oakland, and apparently one in Fairfield, so they exist in California at least. Still. *Does not go to Oakland, it is not fun* Fairfield has the Jelly Belly factory. Perhaps I shall find it next time I go there.

Huh. *Re-checked website* Google had it wrong. Not Oakland. But Fairfield was right. And Sacramento, apparently. Hrm. Well, anyway, apparently they were or are going to put one here, but there isn't one yet. Who knows...
