Because of Michelle Obama’s Shake Shack order last Monday, among other food stops, more people are buying burgers, fries and milk shakes. FLOTUS visits are mini-stimulus for restaurants — except these stimulus actually seem to work.

Washington Post:

Obama Foodarama is reporting that Shake Shack and Eatonville are reporting a “Michelle Obama Effect” — a spike in visitors after the first lady racked up the calories during visits last week. Apparently, you can now order “The Michelle Obama Special” at Shake Shack, and you’ll get a burger, french fries, a shake and a Diet Coke, just like Mrs. O.

If you order the “FLOTUS Happy Meal” you’ll get all of the above, plus a toy: plastic BMI calipers imprinted with the “Let’s Move” logo.

Remember, that meal was in no way in violation of current healthy living guidelines, because nutritionists defended it. The Diet Coke must somehow act as an offset. The USDA was going to include it on their new “Dinner Plate,” but there wasn’t room.
