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.
An official says three people being evacuated from an area near a quake-damaged Japanese nuclear plant have been exposed to radiation.
The Fukushima prefectural disaster official confirmed their exposure but said they showed no signs of illness.
A blast Saturday at the nuclear plant blew off the walls and roof.
Yoshinori Baba says the three were in a group of evacuees who had waited in a school yard to be picked up by a helicopter.
Officials say the plant has released some radiation because of a cooling problem since Friday’s massive quake. They say residents are being evacuated from a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius as a precaution.
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.
