10 Times Fast Food Went Too Far (Part 2)

10 Times Fast Food Went Too Far (Part 2)

August 28, 2019 100 By Bertrand Dibbert


We have looked at some odd sounding menu items
from our favorite fast food chains – some that fall into the delicious category and
others that definitely do not. After that first video, you guys let us know some other
items that were odd enough to make the list. So we listened and are counting down the 10
times fast food went too far part 2. Red Robin Ramen burger The chefs down at Red Robin came to work one
day with this brilliant idea: why don’t we make hamburgers with Ramen noodles for
buns? Though this idea may seem very weird to most, the burger actually reviewed quite
well. It might not have been the most necessary thing to have ever been made by a fast food
chain, but at least this over-the-top item tasted good. The Red Robin Ramen burger is
exactly what you might think, a hamburger that is between two buns made of Ramen noodles.
The noodles were cooked and then mixed with a bit of egg to hold it together, it then
gets compressed into a sort of bun shape, and grilled on both sides to give it a bit
of a crunch. The bun isn’t the only thing that made this hamburger special though, if
it was, it would actually be pretty boring. Red Robin included some special flavorings too,
which made it stand out more and according to a lot of reviews, was the reason that this
hamburger was actually good. This limited time menu item included a Teriyaki and Chiu
Chow aioli, fried Jalapenos, and some chili-infused shredded cabbage, carrot and onion on top.
Though this menu item was not exactly something people had been begging for, and the buns
lost integrity quickly and became a mess of noodles, it actually went over pretty well
with a lot of customers, thanks to the flavors of everything else on the hamburger. Pizza Hut hot dog bites Pizza is a very popular food item, and over
the years, it has grown and evolved and become something completely different than it was
in the beginning. Some of these evolutions have been fantastic, but some of them have
just been downright weird. Pizza Hut is one of the leading makers of fast food pizza,
and apparently a few people who work in their test kitchens have some strange ideas of what
pizza crust should be like. Pizza Hut introduced the Hot Dog Bites pizza crust back in June
of 2015, and media picked up on this idea quickly, leaving a trail of mixed reviews
in its wake. Needless to say, there wasn’t a huge demand for hot dogs in the crust of
pizza before Pizza Hut came up with this gimmick. A lot of the bad reviews of this Pizza Hut
menu item talked about the grease content, which everyone expects when they order a pizza
from the fast food chain anyways, but according to multiple reviews, the hot dog bites crust
only added to that gross feeling you get when you know you made a mistake eating that greasy
piece of pizza. Whether or not you liked the fact that you could eat pizza and hot dogs
at the same time, this menu item isn’t something that ever needed to see the light of day. Papa Johns Frito chili cheese pizza Papa John’s isn’t the first pizza place
to come out with strange pizza toppings, and they most certainly won’t be the last. Many
fast food places are testing the boundaries when it comes to what people will eat on their
food, and sometimes the strangest items are the ones that actually go over well with customers.
The Frito chili cheese pizza from Papa John’s is one of those ones that fell sort of in
the middle with reviewers and customers, with people saying that it was pretty good for
the first few bites, and then it was just kind of boring after that, there was nothing
particularly exciting to make you want to eat this pizza over and over again. This isn’t
one of the craziest pizza toppings to ever exist, it’s basically like an already existing
dish called a Frito Pie, but it definitely wasn’t really something that needed to be
made. The Papa John’s Frito chili cheese pizza was nothing super special, and the sales
numbers show that, it was just sort of a basic pizza flavor profile. This isn’t the most
over the top menu item on our list by any means, and it didn’t take things too far
in the usual sense, but it wasn’t something that there was much of a market for, as the
pizza restaurant learned with the mediocre reviews. Carl’s Jr double loaded omelet biscuit This wasn’t exactly a fully brand-new menu
item for Carl’s Jr when it was released, it was a previously existing menu item that
the restaurant then decided to double up on, as if it wasn’t enough to have just one
option for the same sandwich on the menu. It was a mess of a menu item, and that is
meant literally; the large amounts of cheese contained in this breakfast sandwich oozes
out the sides and gets everywhere while you try to eat it. There’s no real reason that
Carl’s Jr needed to add this item to the menu, if people really wanted to double up
on their loaded omelet biscuits, they could have just ordered two of them on their own.
This stack of eggs, cheese, breakfast sausage, ham and bacon, is probably not the best idea
for breakfast. Though the idea of fresh made biscuits sounds nice, the three different
meats and three different cheeses piled on this sandwich are excessive and unbalanced.
This item reviewed as average, with most complaints being how messy it is, and the fact that even
though there are three different types of meat involved, they are mostly concentrated
around the edge of the sandwich, leaving the middle of it sort of plain. All in all, though
this menu item wasn’t something new for Carl’s Jr, it wasn’t something that needed
to be added on the menu as a separate item. Sonic chocolate jalapeno shake If you’ve ever had a craving for a milkshake,
you probably weren’t sitting there thinking about a milkshake that involved both chocolate
and something spicy, let alone jalapeno peppers, though someone over at Sonic apparently was.
This menu item seems like something that you would get if you let a small child mix you
a drink out of whatever they could find in the fridge. Initially promo images showed
the milkshake containing small, chopped up pieces of the pepper mixed in with the chocolate
shake, but customers reported that the real menu item was in fact just a chocolate shake
with some rather large pieces of jalapeno in it. As if the idea of the milkshake alone
wasn’t enough to make you not want to try it, just imagine trying to enjoy the milkshake
and getting a large piece of jalapeno pepper caught in your straw – that should be an image
that would turn most people away from ordering this specific menu item. Consumers reported
that you didn’t really get the real flavor of the milkshake until you mashed your straw
around a bit to get the jalapeno pepper juices to really mix with the chocolate. The combination
of tastes did not go well, with most reviews of the drink being negative. It seemed like
the jalapeno and chocolate flavor combination was not something that the average consumer
enjoyed, you need a very unique sense of taste to enjoy something like the Sonic chocolate
jalapeno shake. Burger King Mac N’ Cheetos What’s better than good old-fashioned Mac
N’ Cheese, most Mac N’ Cheese lovers would say nothing. According to Burger King though,
deep fried Mac N’ Cheese inspired Cheetos bites are. Considered widely as one of the
most popular comfort foods, Mac N’ Cheese has been a household staple for a very long
time, so when Burger King decided to add a menu item to their lineup that included this
quick and easy favorite, it was hard to imagine that they could somehow ruin it. Against all
odds, Burger King managed to wreck this noodle and cheese filled dish by throwing it in the
deep fryer and coating it in Cheetos flavoring. Surprisingly, Burger King wasn’t the first
or only restaurant to do something along these lines. Despite the absolute trainwreck that
Mac N’ Cheetos were, they actually sold out fairly quickly, they were a popular item
among their customers. Though they sold well, the snack items weren’t pleasing to everyone.
Reviews from media outlets as well as blind taste tests conducted by several sources indicated
that half the people who tried them disliked the Mac N’ Cheese bites. Though this item
had mixed reviews, enough people seemed to like it that when they were first introduced
by Burger King in 2016, every location that offered them was sold out within the first
few weeks of launch. If this unnecessary menu item peaks your interest, you’re in luck.
Burger King has brought this item back twice since the initial launch, so they may just
come around again. Dunkin Donuts glazed donut breakfast sandwich Breakfast sandwiches are a popular item, an
easy way to eat breakfast on the go, it includes all of the delicious items most people love
about breakfast: eggs, bacon, and in this case donuts. If you were to ask most nutrition
experts, they would tell you all the things you should have in the morning to equal a
balanced breakfast, and they wouldn’t include a glazed donut in their list, but Dunkin Donuts
would have to disagree. The Dunkin Donuts glazed breakfast sandwich adds the sugary
fried dough to your morning. There’s no surprise with this item, it’s exactly what
it sounds like, a regular breakfast sandwich with a glazed donut cut in half and used as
the bread. This isn’t some revolutionary item, it’s been done before, but never really
on a larger scale at a well-known fast food restaurant. It would be an easy enough dish
to make at home if you really wanted to try them, or if you really like to combine eggs
and donuts. It wasn’t a very revolutionary or gimmicky menu item for Dunkin Donuts to
add. Though this sandwich probably tasted alright, most doctors or generally health
conscious people would never suggest that you should have a donut or two for breakfast.
The Dunkin Donuts glazed donut breakfast sandwich wasn’t ever something that the public needed
access to, and as it adds no real nutritional value to your breakfast, I would suggest just
skipping the glazed donut. Domino’s specialty chicken The name specialty chicken suggests that it
would just be some new flavor of chicken wings or a new take on chicken nuggets, but
instead of keeping it simple like that, Dominos decided to create a monstrosity that no one
really asked for, though you have to give them credit for coming up with a way to make
a chicken based dish that is so simple, and yet so off-putting. This menu item sounds
like something they decided to add just because they can add whatever they want to the menu,
and for no other reason than that. Put simply, the Dominos specialty chicken consists of
some chicken tenders, cheese melted on top of it, along with various ingredients and
some sauce. The whole thing just looks like a dish that was dropped on the floor and hastily
scraped back onto the plate and served while the waiter pretends like it wasn’t dropped
and it’s supposed to look like that. It’s a mess of a dish, but despite its looks, a
lot of reviews said it tasted alright. Reviews state that the sauces were pretty bland, and
the cheese at the bottom of the box was burnt to a crisp, but other than that the chicken
itself was what you’d expect out of Dominos chicken, and the toppings were the same ones
found on the pizzas already. All in all, this menu item seems like something that someone
threw together hastily with the left overs in their fridge, and then charged you too
much for it. Burger King Bacon Sundae Burger King seems to enjoy taking things that
have already been done by other restaurants and rehashing them in their own locations.
The Bacon Sundae is another thing that they weren’t the first to offer, but they definitely
should be the last. For most people, the idea of vanilla ice cream and bacon mixed together
doesn’t seem appealing. Not only did this limited time menu item include bacon and vanilla
soft serve ice cream, but it also came with chocolate sauce and caramel sauce on it. Despite
the fact that no one should have ever made, or even thought of making, a sundae with this
many flavors, lots of people actually enjoyed this dessert. Some reviewers were disappointed
with this sundae, not because of the odd combination of ingredients involved, but because they
thought that the ice cream was going to be bacon flavored as well. Even without the
bacon flavored ice cream, the strips of bacon alone in this sundae were enough to
push it over the line from delicious ice cream treat to just completely over-the-top unnecessary. Friendly’s grilled cheese burger melt Stuck deciding between grilled cheese and
a hamburger? This menu item solves that problem, combining both grilled cheese and a hamburger
into one ridiculous sandwich that most people never asked for. Friendly’s introduced this
dish with absolutely no regard for the health of anyone who eats it, packing a ridiculous
number of calories and sodium, the grilled cheese burger melt is something that absolutely
no one needs to consume in their lifetime. Though the combination of both grilled cheese
and a hamburger sounds delicious, the reviews on it were mixed. Setting aside the dangers
to your health, some people found that this hamburger wasn’t that exciting, simply just
a hamburger with twice the bread and some extra cheese, it wasn’t really something
that all consumers were going to get a second time. This item wasn’t really as popular
as Friendly’s probably hoped it would be, a lot of people were simply put off by the
daunting amount of calories included in this sandwich, and it made headlines for a
lot of the wrong reasons, most media outlets reporting only on how outrageously bad for
you the Friendly’s grilled cheese burger melt was, which was not great marketing for
the grilled cheese burger melt. Stick around and tap that screen to check
