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.
Rock legends Crosby, Stills & Nash visited “The Tonight Show” on Monday night to promote the release of “CSNY 1974,” a box set collection of music from the group’s 1974 reunion tour with Neil Young. Though Young wasn’t onstage, host Jimmy Fallon filled in for him. It wouldn’t feel right to perform a CSNY song with the greats, so Fallon opted for something a little more campy — Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” (a song Fallon apparently likes a lot!).
Thankfully, the trio also performed original music, “Teach Your Children” and “So Begins the Task”:
“CSNY 1974″ is available July 8.

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.
