Odd Foods From Everyone's Favorite Fast Food Places

10 Unique Food Items Fast Food Chains Introduced Over The Years

It seems as if fast food restaurants are constantly trying to reinvent themselves with new, innovative, maybe somewhat odd, foods. Some of them have been hits, while other misses. Here are 10 unique food items introduced over the years by popular food chains.

1. Burger King: Lucky Charms Shake

I am a fellow Lucky Charms cereal lover myself and was quite intrigued when I saw that Burger King had invented a vanilla shake around it. Now, some people may question what they were thinking here, but I think it was a great idea. Definitely unique and very innovative. What’s great is you can get it today!

2. Sonic: Pretzel Dog

Sonic has recently re-introduced their new Pretzel Dog, which takes on an interesting twist to a traditional hot dog bun. This new hot dog transforms a regular bun into a gourmet pretzel bun. Having the option to try out a different bread was a smart move, especially for pretzel lovers. I had the chance to try it the other day, and it is definitely something everyone should sample at least once.

3 Taco Bell: Waffle Taco

Taco Bell had come out with a Waffle Taco a few years back, and I am sure that this discontinued item is missed by us all. It was a waffle shaped as a taco, with eggs and sausage inside, and syrup on top if desired. What is better than your favorite breakfast items compact inside a waffle? Someone, please enlighten me.

4. McDonald's: Green Burger

Green and burgers never seem to mix in any situation. However, that did not stop McDonald’s from creating an 'Angry Birds' themed green burger. I do not necessarily know if I would have the stomach to try this creation, although I imagine it’s not too bad considering its immense popularity in China.

5. Krispy Kreme: Jelly Bean Mix

Krispy Kreme only makes doughnuts? Well think again. Krispy Kreme has come out with Krispy Kreme Jelly Bean mixes in bulk or in gift sizes. Every flavor from Original, Strawberry, Chocolate, Cinnamon Apple to Blueberry glazed doughnut flavored beans. Quite an interesting take on two distinct snacks.

6. Pizza Hut: Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust

Did anyone ever think that a staple food such as grilled cheese would come together with pizza? Well this unique food item came to the menu in 2016 and seemed to be quite a hit. I think I’d like to try it sometime if it were to ever make a comeback.

7. Red Robin: Beam-N-Boozy Bacon Shake

Bacon in a shake is something we all have wanted to secretly try. Red Robin had come out with their Beam-N-Boozy Bacon Shake that consisted of Jim Beam Maple, bacon bits, caramel and, of course, an entire strip of bacon for that extra flare, all inside a vanilla shake. It is definitely one of those drinks you need to try just to say you have!

8. Dairy Queen: Guardians of the Galaxy Blizzard

Who says that a huge block buster movie can’t be a success in the kitchen as well? Dairy Queen introduced their Guardians of the Galaxy Blizzard for a limited time. The ingredients included brownies, chocolate, cookie pieces and caramel. I wish I had tried it!

9. Whataburger: Hulk Drink

The Hulk is a very popular Marvel character, which is probably why Whataburger wanted to dedicate an entire drink to this superhero. This green drink features Powerade and Vault Soda to resemble this fictional character’s identifiable green skin as closely as possible. Quite refreshing on a hot, summer's day.

10. Jack in The Box: Hella-Peno Burger

For those of you that crave the heat, Jack in The Box came out with their cleverly named Jalapeño based burger, the Hella-Peno Burger. Pepper lovers have finally been given their favorite snack. Honestly, who would have thought about pairing the two; but aren’t we glad they did.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
