Fast food logos play games with your head

WASHINGTON — Have you ever noticed that a lot of fast-food logos look the same? Well there might be a reason for that.

You may have noticed many of the logos contain red, yellow or orange. According to famouslogos.com, these colors subconsciously spark your appetite and entice you to spend more money.

Famouslogos.com also reports that research supports the claim that people consume more food in rooms that are painted in warmer colors, including – also – orange, yellow and red.

For those who remain skeptical, try naming the mainstream restaurants who do not contain one of those three colors in their logos.
