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.
MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Security has been increased at American missions around the world following an attack that killed the U.S. ambassador in Libya.
Guards and police special forces were seen carrying assault rifles outside the U.S. Embassy in the Philippine capital. Guards gestured to a photographer to stop taking pictures.
Traffic was busy as usual on a boulevard in front of the main entrance. A police pickup truck with a machine-gun mounted on the back was parked under a tree, and Philippine coast guard vessels patrolled Manila Bay around the embassy.
President Barack Obama ordered increased security at U.S. diplomatic missions overseas and vowed justice for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed the ambassador and three other people.
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.
