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

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. The “goth-like” burger, as the Guardian calls it, will feature beef patties coated in black pepper, black cheese and buns made with bamboo charcoal, and an onion-garlic topping made with (wait for it) squid ink, Narinari.com reports via Kotaku.

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

CONSCIOUS UNCOUPLING TIPS

How to divorce like Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Read More »

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 fries. If that isn’t the most wonderfully specific passive aggressive move ever, I don’t know what is. Paltrow, after all, is a complete psycho about what goes into the temple that is her body and is no doubt as fastidious about what her children eat. Not that I’m advocating for fast food — generally, that shit is gross and bad for you — but it just tickles me that Martin, finally freed from Gwyneth’s oppressive food policies, might have been like, “Hey kids, who wants to consciously couple their stomach with some deep fried starch?” I still hate Coldplay, but damn, Chris has suddenly earned my admiration.

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. (I’m guessing genetically engineered chickens with no heads and 17 breasts, but I could be wrong.) Initially I was picturing a pizza pie with crust made out of, I dunno, minced chicken cooked and shaped into a circle — GAG — but it turns out that this chicken pizza more closely resembles that pull apart garlic bread. Each “pizza” is comprised of 12 chicken bites that, uh, are sort of stuck together in an oblong shape, and topped with various pizza toppings. When you really think about it, this is not altogether different from, say, chicken parmesan … except Domino’s is going a little nuttier with their “flavors.” They’re launching with four varieties: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon. I dunno, sounds like overkill to me. This is one fast food innovation I’ll be saying NO to. [Eater]

And lo and behold, here are 13 others! Hot dog pizza? Pasta bread bowls? God help us…

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 her a Frosty? [Instagram]

Lucky Arby’s Customer Gets A 28-Inch Curly Fry

Luck Arby's Customer Gets A 28-Inch Curly Fry

French Fry enthusiasts, behold one of the world’s longest curly fries. The 28-inch fry was scored by one Gary Young of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on a routine trip through his local Arby’s drive-thru. Young was digging into his hot roast beef curtain combo meal on his way home when he discovered the inconceivably long curly fry. “I was shocked. That’s like the biggest fry I’ve ever seen. I thought it was a snake,” he said. Luckily it wasn’t a snake. This would be a whole different kind of story if it was. Keep reading »

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

Burger King debuts new lower-calorie french fries

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 a treat, and why go sucking all the fun out of treats with things like nutrition facts and diet plans? Why, Burger King, why must you introduce “Satisfries,” with 40% less fat and 30% fewer calories than your regular fries? I mean, maybe the 70-calorie decrease makes more sense if Burger King fries are a staple of your everyday eating, but if you’re a once in a while, gotta-have-my-fries type like myself, why even bother? Especially when you consider that a small order of these new crinkle-cut fries will run you $1.89, as opposed to the $1.59 a small order of regular fries will cost you. My takeaway: for a difference of 70 calories, and a 19% markup, go for the regular fries. Just go for it. [Gothamist]
