This is one of the most popular options, especially during Lent. Did you know that around 75 million Filet-o-Fish sandwiches are sold during Lent? And this sandwich was originally created with the Catholic crowd in mind, which is no wonder why it’s such a staple during this time of year. But now, you can try some other fast-food options during Lent.

Burger King Fiery Big Fish
