The Pumper Nic

Only in Argentina can a fast food store whose logo is a hippopotamus. Well, it's not like they did so well either.


Only in Argentina can a fast food store whose logo is a hippopotamus. It's okay to be honest (it's even laudable), and we all know that   junk food   is not the best for the body, but tell us so on the face that we're going to get fat to limits. unsuspected may not be the best way to promote food. Well, it's not like they did so well either. The chain disappeared, “gobbled up” by  Ronald . The marketing department may have been part of the blame.

If I have to be super honest, I don't remember the taste of Pumper Nic's burger, but I do remember perfectly that I chose it over any other restaurant. Is it because he was the first I went to? It's likely. But there is something that arrowed me for life and I pay a little tribute every time I go to eat at a fast food: I never ask fries, I always, wherever I am, ask “Frenys”.

From here I want to send my most heartfelt tribute to Pumper Nic, along with the Ital Park, the  Billiken , the  figurines “Garbage” and the He-Man dolls. They are all fundamental pillars of my past. My childhood wouldn't be what it was without those companies. They say a man's homeland is his childhood. Well, if so, in my passport I should say “Frenys dining room.”
