I barely have to see the colour yellow to start craving chicken nuggets, but Full House actor Candace Cameron Bure has said she hasn't eaten fast food in 20 years.
The actor, 47, made the statement seemingly out of nowhere in a post on her Instagram Story recently, claiming there's only one fast food restaurant she's visited in the last two decades.
The lucky chosen store is In-N-Out Burger - a restaurant which claims that unlike other fast food restaurants, it doesn't 'freeze, pre-package or microwave' food before serving it to its customers.
Instead, it claims: "We make things the old-fashioned way."
The quality of the In-N-Out's food is obviously good enough for Candace, but she said she's never sunk her teeth into any menu items from some of the other classic restaurants, like McDonald's and Burger King.
In her post, the actor explained: "I haven't eaten fast food except for In N Out for 20 years. Some days I wonder what a burger and fries is like from McDonalds or Burger King or Wendy's or any of those other places I've never eaten at."
Candace went on to tease her followers, suggesting that after so many years, she might be about to give in.
"Today is that day. Am I going to find out?" she wrote.
However, she quickly shut down the tease by adding: "No."
"And no, I've never had Taco Bell or anything similar. I don't regret it. You can't convince me otherwise," Candace added in a follow-up story.
The post caught a lot of attention from viewers, though some suggested she may not have been completely honest as internet sleuths tracked down an image of her enjoying a Chick-Fil-A with her son in 2012.
The snap was accompanied by the caption: 'We love chikin!" though Candace was only holding a drink in the photo, so we can't say for sure whether she tucked in to any food.
The actor has previously been open about her relationship with food, admitting she had an eating disorder in her early 20s.
Speaking to Fox News in 2020, she said: "It’s something I still think about in terms of making good choices for myself to stay on the right track. And so I think the biggest key for me that was like a lightbulb moment was just understanding and listening to my body, and ultimately realizing how much better I feel when I make good choices.”
