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.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is making its largest ad buy of the head-to-head contest with President Barack Obama.
Officials who track ad purchases say the presumptive Republican candidate is spending $3.3 million in the coming week in Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the Romney campaign has not announced the advertising plan.
Romney’s team has already released ads outlining what a Romney administration would do in its first days in office. This new wave of advertising is the largest so far and is a signal Romney is ready to spend heavily on television and cable stations.
Romney’s allies at an independent super PAC have been on the air for weeks while Romney raised campaign cash.
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.
