Fast food has come a long way from simple burgers and fries. In the past decade, big-name chains have been competing to create the most outrageous and attention-grabbing menu items to attract curious customers. From unexpected flavor combinations to peculiar food mashups, fast food menus have seen a burst of creativity and unpredictability. Let’s take a whirlwind tour through some of the most over-the-top fast food creations of the last ten years that left diners both intrigued and bewildered.
KFC Doughnut Zinger Burger (2021)
KFC made waves with their limited-edition Doughnut Zinger Burger, which appeared in South Africa in 2021. This audacious creation featured a Zinger chicken sandwiched between two glazed doughnuts. The internet’s reactions ranged from horrified to eager anticipation, making it a prime candidate for a bigger menu release.
Dunkin’ Cookie Butter Cold Brew Coffee (2022)
For the true cookie butter aficionados, Dunkin’ introduced a trendy delight in 2022 – the Cookie Butter Cold Brew Coffee. Slow-steeped like traditional cold brew, this beverage is topped with a dollop of cookie butter cold foam. And if that’s not enough, you can take it up a notch with a cookie butter donut on the side. A caffeine kick with a cookie twist!
Del Taco Stuffed Quesadilla Tacos (2021)
Del Taco’s mission was clear – never force customers to choose between quesadillas and tacos again. In 2021, they combined the two beloved items, creating the Stuffed Quesadilla Tacos. Two tortillas packed with melted cheeses, and stuffed with a choice of fried chicken, grilled chicken, or carne asada, alongside classic taco toppings, all in one delightful package.
Jack in the Box Burger Dippers (2019)
Jack in the Box aimed to make burgers more road-friendly with their 2019 creation – Burger Dippers. This “burger you can eat like a fry” came with a chopped hamburger patty wrapped in a crispy coating, topped with sesame seeds, and served with ketchup or ranch for dipping. A fast food invention that combined convenience with deliciousness.
Pizza Hut Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza (2019)
Pizza Hut surprised everyone with their 2019 limited-time offering – the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza. Resembling a calzone dressed as a Cheez-It for Halloween, this creation featured a Cheez-It-flavored crust, stuffed with either plain cheese or cheese and pepperoni filling. Marinara sauce on the side for dipping made it a stoner cheese lover’s paradise.
Arby’s Arbynator (2018)
In 2018, Arby’s indulged our craving for more with the Arbynator. This half-pound sandwich was a meat lover’s dream, piled high with roast beef, cheddar sauce, Arby’s sauce, curly fries, and served on a sesame seed bun. Although it’s no longer on the official menu, it remains a secret delight that fans can still request.
Taco Bell Firecracker Burrito (2017)
Leave it to Taco Bell to take a childhood candy favorite and fuse it with a burrito. In 2017, they introduced the Firecracker Burrito – a seemingly innocent blend of beef, rice, cheese, and sour cream. But the nebulously crunchy red strips, red tortilla, and packets of “cayenne popping crystals” launched it into another dimension of flavor excitement.
Popeyes Sweet and Crunchy Tenders (2017)
Before the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich craze, the chain tried out Sweet and Crunchy Tenders in 2017. Battered in shortbread cookies and served with a jam-like dipping sauce, it proved to be a sweet, crispy, and controversial delight.
Tim Hortons Buffalo Latte (2017)
Tim Hortons surprised (or pranked) Buffalo, New York, with the Buffalo Latte in 2017. This daring concoction mixed espresso, steamed milk, mocha, Buffalo sauce, whipped cream, and a sprinkling of Buffalo seasoning. A unique and unforgettable flavor adventure.
Burger King Mac n’ Cheetos (2016)
In 2016, Burger King took indulgence to a whole new level with Mac n’ Cheetos – fried macaroni and cheese shaped like giant Cheetos and coated in Cheeto dust. It was a flavor explosion that captured the essence of fast-food shock and awe.
