RIP Society: Taco Bell Is Offering Taco Shells Made Out Of Fried Chicken

Fast food innovations are hit or miss. Taco Bell is especially familiar with this truism, as they are responsible for both the Doritos Locos Taco — their most successful launch to date — and this new monstrosity, the Naked Crispy Chicken Taco. Sounds healthy, you’re probably thinking. So what’s the problem? Well, first of all, it’s not at all healthy,…

Anyone who was excited when Taco Bell made a taco out of a biscuit will likely be blown away by this news: The fast-food chain will now be serving beer, wine, and alcohol “freezes,” the Chicago Tribune reports.

My Daily Prayers Worked – Taco Bell May Start Delivering to Your Door, You’re All Welcome

Likely sensing that Chipotle being classified as a great first date spot was mainly thanks to me, Taco Bell just upped its game big time to make a play for king of my fast casual dining loving heart: they’ll be testing a delivery service starting this year.
Given that the largest barrier to entry to dining at…

Burger King’s ‘Black Burger’ Even Has Black Cheese

Who knows how many cheeseburger-noshing rules will be broken by this new sandwich from Burger King, but hey—anything’s better than meat-scented perfume, right? BK Japan’s “Kuro Burger” (or “Black Burger”) is apparently hitting restaurants there on Sept. 19, according to promotional images shown on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Chris Martin Allegedly Took His Kids To A Fast Food Restaurant, Which Is So Delightfully Passive Aggressive

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s divorce, excuse me, conscious uncoupling may sound full of good, peaceful vibes, but a SHOCKING new report from In Touch (grain of salt, blah blah blah) suggests otherwise. According to the gossip mag, Martin was spotted taking his and Paltrow’s two kids, Moses and Apple, to a fast food restaurant where the three of them ate french

Domino’s Breaded Chicken Crust Pizza & 13 Other Crazy And Sort Of Disgusting Fast Food Innovations

I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means.

Even Kim And Kanye Eat At Wendy’s (Well, Kim Texts At Wendy’s)

I am overjoyed to see this Instagram photo of Kim and Kanye casually nomming on Wendy’s cuisine in Philadelphia last Friday (while Kim texts, of course).  You know it was Kanye’s idea, though. Kim was totally just humoring him by sitting in a fast food restaurant like a normal person. Do you think he bought…

Burger King, Get Your Lower-Calorie “Satisfries” Out Of My Face

When I decide it’s high time for me to procure myself some fast food French fries, the last (last!!!!!!) thing on my mind is their caloric content. No, when I decide that I done deserve some fries, I don’t care how many calories they’re gonna cost me, or where those calories are going. They are…

Living Between The Corporate Glass Ceiling & The “Sticky Floor” Of Fast Food Work

Most of talk around women in the workplace of late has been of the Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In variety. Women, argues Sandberg’s book, can break through the so-called glass ceiling by simply being more tenacious, proactive and self-empowered. The dialogue is often framed around getting women into positions of power, pushing for more female CEOs, and…

What Would You Do If A 7-Foot KFC Bucket Randomly Appeared In Your Yard?

“I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside.”

Jennifer Aniston Ate A Big Mac Once And It Was Awful

“I’ll never forget when Justin and I were on a road trip and we were so hungry. The only thing around was McDonald’s. I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that! It was like putting gasoline in a purified system. I am always trying to eat organic…

6 Fast Food Employees Caught Doing Disgusting Things To Our Food

I was already grossed out enough by fast food without having to see evidence of employees tainting the food I never wanted to eat anyway. I try to consume fast food as little as possible. I usually will only eat it on road trips if there’s nothing else. Reason being: I grew up in Phoenix…

Rip’n Chick’n Is Like A Weird Chicken Hand With Creepy Fingers

It’s really crazy what they’re doing with chicken these days. I mean, does this new Rip’n Chick’n from Popeyes look even remotely like something that came from a living creature? These look like bizarre fried finger tentacles of chicken, just waiting to brush your leg or arm. Which is to say, they are disgusting, and…

Cinnabon, You Have Failed Us With Your Pizzabon

When I heard that Cinnabon had created a new snack treat to add to its gooey cinnamon bun empire, I was thrilled. Then I found out it was a pizza-oriented treat called a Pizzabon. Double thrilled!
