The 10 Worst Fast Food Trends of 2012
After the great meat fiasco of 2011, in which Taco Bell's meat was discovered to be less "meat" and more ground gym mats or something, what did they do? They followed up their blockbuster 2012 release of the Doritos Locos Taco with a Cool Ranch version. It actually happened. It wasn't a dream.
5. KFC Philippines "Streetwise" Cheese Top Burger
This one deserves its own place on the list. We still have so many questions! What about cheese melted crudely on top of a burger bun is "Streetwise"? How do you eat it? Why didn't they put the cheese on the burger?
4. The Ridiculously Expensive Delivery Pizza
This is Domino's Prestige Quattro pizza, which is not a sequel to the 2006 Hugh Jackman film. It had snow crab, truffles, some fancy-ass pork and it cost $50 (U.S.).
3. The Grand Canyon Burger at McDonald's
Japan McDonald's bizarre Big America 2 campaign, which featured four Hulk-fist sized America-themed burgers (the "Texas 2" burger featured "flavors of the Lone Star State with spicy chili beans"). We'll look past those for a minute to marvel at the absurd, looks-like-it-was-built-by-a-stoned-high-schooler Grand Canyon burger. It's got egg, mozzarella, cheddar cheese and steak sauce with soy and liquid smoke.
2. The Star Wars Burger Line, Including the "Dark Vador"
So here's what you're looking at: The Frenchy-Belgiany fast food chain Quick, in honor of the Star Wars: Episode One Phantom Menace Shit Show in the Three Dimensions released earlier this year, created burgers with a dyed-pitch black bun. As Yoda would say, disgusting, this looks.
1. Pizza Hut's Crown Crust Pizza & Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza
Pizza Hut U.K.
Well, you win, North Texas-based Pizza Hut. With this many ridiculous entries on the list (global ones at that), we have to crown crust you as the winner. Specifically, we recognize Jabba the Pizza Hut for the following two releases:
1. The Crown Crust Pizza, which had a crust made of tiny burgers.
2. The Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza, which had a HOT DOG STUFFED CRUST. And, as you can see, the mustard drizzle.
Congratulations Pizza Hut Worldwide for adding greatness to our world. Now, with that said: Mayor Mike, what can we do to get Hot Dog Crust Pizza over to Dallas?
