The fast-food industry has a history of releasing bizarre items.
Many were found overseas.
See some of these strange items.
Pizza Hut released this wacky item in Singapore. The two-crust pizza was essentially a pizza-in-a-pizza, with one crust stuffed with three cheeses and topped with turkey, ham, veggies, and salsa, and another stuffed with chicken sausage, cheese, and topped with zucchini, chicken, and sauce. There was a cherry in the middle, too.
In 2012, Pizza Hut Middle East released another Crown Crust Pizza, this time featuring mini cheeseburgers in the crust. According to a commercial for the wacky product, it was topped with beef, fresh vegetables, and a special sauce specific to Pizza Hut. The commercial makes it look like the product was targeted towards people who craved cheeseburgers when they dined at Pizza Hut, as it featured a man ordering a cheeseburger. His friends laugh, but his waiter introduces him to this outrageous product.
In 2012, Taco Bell debuted a new and bizarre morning beverage called Mtn. Dew A.M. Like a bizarre mimosa without the champagne but with Mountain Dew, the beverage was a sugary mix of orange juice and Mountain Dew. The company now serves a rebranded version of the beverage called Mountain Drew Kickstart Orange Citrus.
KFC's Double Down is pretty over-the-top as it is -- but then KFC Korea launched this insane item, which, as the ad says, is 'no bun. All meat.' Like its predecessor, there was bacon and cheese -- but there was no bread, just two chicken patties serving as the mechanism to hold this 'sandwich' together.
In 2013, Brand Eating reported McDonald's Hong Kong released 'Black and White' burgers. The website reported the 'white' burger featured the odd amalgam of a bun with black sesame seeds, lettuce mashed potatoes, a fried chicken patty, pepper mushroom sauce, and bacon. However, the 'black' burger was even more bizarre, as the bun was made with squid ink and topped with sesame seeds. Inside of the burger were two beef patties, lettuce, bacon, mashed potatoes, and truffle sauce.
Last summer, As Eaten on TV shared a photo of this outrageous doughnut at the New York State Fair. Grub Street accounted for its mash-up of unhealthy ingredients: the obviously fried doughnut, buffalo sauce, and even tortilla chips -- which the website pointed out was just for decoration. True to its buffalo wings inspiration, the doughnut was also available in a 'mild' flavour with ranch dressing.
This pizza might be the most bizarre menu item of all. Pizza Hut Korea's star-shaped pizza was loaded with seafood, meat, and dessert in the crust. Brand Eating noted the over-the-top pizza came fully equipped with shrimp, calamari, sausage, bacon, steak, and crusts filled with cranberry and cream cheese or a cinnamon-apple-nut mix alongside cream cheese. The commercial shows just how over-the-top and bizarre the product was, too.
