has seen its fair share of new fast-food concoctions that are
questionable in terms of customers’ health and logic. What are some
more interesting ones that fast food companies thought would make the
world go crazy?
King – Taco
King decided to stray a little from its regular lineup with the
offering of a taco. Released in July, for just a $1, it was meant to
compete with the infamous Jack in the Box taco. There are mixed
reactions to this taco, with many considering not one of the greatest
creations to enter the fast-food market.
King – The Spicy Chicken Parmesan Sandwich
people love spicy food, so when BK introduced its spicy nuggets, they
were a hit. However, the Spicy Chicken Parmesan Sandwich didn’t
have the spicy reception the other spicy delicacies the fast-food
chain brought forth.
– Pancake Burger
certainly caught consumers’ attention last year when it changed its
name from IHOP to IHOB for a short time. This year, the restaurant
focused on making a pancake into a bun for burgers.
– Donuts and Fried Chicken
over chicken and waffles; there is a new player in town – the
donuts and chicken sandwich. This sandwich saw its origins begin in
September that helped to reduce the anger many felt about the
Popeye’s sandwich outbreak.
if the donut chicken sandwich wasn’t enough, KFC came up with
wings. Sure, it may not have seemed too weird given that it’s a
chicken place, but the saucy delectable were anything but delectable.
Perhaps KFC should stick to what it knows best… fried chicken.
– Cheetos Sandwich
you love Cheetos and chicken, then the KFC Chicken Sandwich may be
right up your alley. It looks like some college-aged kid came up with
it, and while it looks odd, it’s really not as bad as it looks.
so much attention on chicken this year, McDonald’s got in on the
action with its McChicken on McGriddle buns. Sure, it was something
new and different, but the two didn’t really sit well together.
certainly nothing wrong with fried dough, even though it’s
typically circular. However, McDonald’s aims to be different and
fried dough into stick shapes. These donut sticks were served with a
side of chocolate dipping sauce.
Hut – Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza
Pizza Hut Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza is shaped like Cheez-Its, is known
as a pizza, but doesn’t take like either one. Rather, it’s grease
tasting with even more grease added to it with canned tomato sauce
thrown on top.
– Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Pie
you love pumpkin pie, then the Popeye’s pumpkin and cream cheese
pie is one of those must-try foods on the menu.
– Tie-Dye Frappuccino
released its Tie-Dye Frap in July, which look more like a melted
rainbow than some tasty drink. However, for those who had it, it
tasted similar to banana candy.
Bell – Toasted Cheddar Chalupa
Bell went with the fry it method first. Then, the fast-food chain
decided it would smoother its food with cheese and fry it too. This
is the birth of the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa – another concoction
thought up by the college kid possibly.
– Breakfast Baconator
entered into the breakfast market with 300 test locations, offering
its Baconator with egg and breakfast sausage instead of a hamburger
patty. Needless to say, its market is doing quite well.
