I cannot think of any Children's Rhymes about Fast Foods or fizzy, sugar filled, Caffeine laced Drinks. The concept of these Food items being part of Children's Lives and Rhymes today, all be it considered "normal", is quite sad from a dietary viewpoint I think.
Then again I suppose this old Rhyme could be considered to be about a food item that is now considered unhealthy also.
As a Tongue Twister, my Daughters found it to be a lot of fun to say as quickly and as articulately as possible!
Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, the butter's bitter.
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter
Is sure to make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
