2014's fast food atrocities
Burger King's black cheeseburger: Made with squid ink and bamboo charcoal, arguably a symbol of meat's destructive effect on the planet. Only available in Japan.
Authorities say a small plane crashed on a San Diego golf course, killing a woman and seriously injuring a man and three children.
San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque (loo-KAY’) says it’s unclear whether any of the five people aboard the single-engine, home-built plane were related. He did not know their names or ages.
Luque says the plane went down around 12:45 p.m. Monday near the 11th hole of the Admiral Baker Golf Course in the city’s Tierrasanta area.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot took off from Montgomery Field and radioed the tower that he had an open door and was going to try to return. The plane was headed for Fullerton Municipal Airport.
Domino's Specialty Chicken: It's like regular pizza, except instead of a crust, there's fried chicken. The company's marketing officer calls it "one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had” -- brain power put to good use.
KFC'S ZINGER DOUBLE DOWN KING: A sandwich made by adding a burger patty to the infamous chicken-instead-of-buns creation can only be described using all caps. NO BUN ALL MEAT. Only available in South Korea.
Taco Bell's Waffle Taco: It took two years for Taco Bell to develop this waffle folded in the shape of a taco, the stand-out star of its new breakfast menu.
Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger: Only attendees at the San Diego County Fair were given the opportunity to taste the official version of this donut-hamburger-heart attack combo. The rest of America has reasonable odds of not dropping dead tomorrow.
Taco Bell's Quesarito: A burrito wrapped in a quesadilla inside an enigma. Quarantined to one store in Oklahoma City.
