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.
British author Michael Morpurgo’s beloved 1982 children’s novel, “War Horse,” has already been adapted for the theater on both sides of the Atlantic, to great acclaim (the Broadway version recently won the Tony Award for best play). A new film adaptation, directed by Steven Spielberg, will be in cinemas late this December (only five days after another Spielberg film — his Tintin adaptation — is released).
The movie follows Joey (a horse) and his young English master, Albert; separated at the beginning of the First World War, they navigate England and Europe alone, each experiencing a wide range of wartime realities as Albert remains devoted to the recovery of his friend.
Here’s the trailer:
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.
