2017 Was Also The Year Of Insane Fast Food Menu Items

Published

2017 has had its fair share of ups and downs. But regardless of what happens in politics or pop culture, food has always been there when we need it. Several fast food chains tried to shake things up this year with some menu additions.

Unfortunately, these following 10 items left folks with sad wallets and upset stomachs.

Naked And Free

Taco Bell

To be fair, chickens are always naked. It’s too bad Taco Bell didn’t get the memo. Their Naked Chicken Chalupa was pulled from stores one month after being released to the public.

Sweet Dreams

Popeye’s managed to cause a disruption online with their Sweet & Crunchy Tenders. Shortbread cookie coating gave tenders their sweet taste, but people thought the whole ordeal was sour.

Despicable Food

Despicable Me 3 was one of the biggest movies of the summer. McDonald’s decided to share the love with nothing but Minions. In Singapore, the franchise released food based on the animated creatures.

The Incredible, Edible Naked Egg

Taco Bell

Taco Bell is apparently clueless that food can’t wear clothes. Their Naked Egg Taco was basically a glorified omelet. Nothing to see here, people.

Szechuan Disaster

If you want to talk about a fast food nightmare, the Szechuan sauce beats them all. Thanks to Rick and Morty, thousands of folks camped outside McDonald’s for an opportunity to own this elusive item.

Chocolaty Catastrophe

Taco Bell

Break me off a piece of that Taco Bell? The taco company joined forces with Kit Kat for the Kit Kat Quesadilla. This obscure combo could only be found in Wisconsin.

Taste The Explosion

There are two things that don’t mix well with pop rocks: soda and burritos. Unfortunately, Taco Bell ignore this and delivered the Firecracker Burrito. Spicy pop rocks mixed with beef is not a good feeling.

It’s Magically Disgusting

As a kid, the idea of Lucky Charms being tossed in a shake would’ve been delightful. Burger King took it upon themselves to ruin those childhood dreams with their Lucky Charms Shake.

Chip On My Shoulder

Taco Bell

McDonald’s has its uncanny McNuggets. Taco Bell has its Naked Chicken Chips. This item, which was released in May, continued the store’s downward spiral into chicken creations.

A Weak Eruption

In the beginning of the year, Taco Bell delivered their Volcano Crispy Chicken Chips to little fanfare. Fortunately, this item was only available in Knoxville, Tennessee for a limited time.

These Celebrity Doppelgangers From The Past Have Us Seeing Double

Time travel is a mystifying concept. Much like the idea of extraterrestrial life, it has captured the human imagination for as long as we have existed. Today, it’s at the forefront of famous movie plots, most famously ‘Back to the Future,’ and pops up in late-night conversations about the universe and meaning of life. As of now, scientists have not been able to confirm whether traveling through time is possible, and though there isn’t any kind of hard evidence that proves human beings can time travel, these photos of celebrities alongside what appear to be them in other time periods will sure make you wonder.

The Holiday Season is upon us and you know what that means – time to watch Die Hard!

We know the debate has raged on for nearly 30 years: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? We’ve done the leg work (watched Die Hard so many times we’ve lost count) and we have the definitive answer. Yippee ki-yay it’s Die Hard season!
