Joel Burger and Ashley King have known each other since kindergarten, but they didn’t start dating until college. Clearly, it was their destiny to fall in love and get married. The Burger King wedding is on.

They are currently trying to get drink koozies with the company’s logo and it looks like Burger King has taken notice. They’ve reached out via twitter in hopes of contacting Mr. Burger and Miss King.

See a picture of the couple at Burger King and the company’s tweet after the break.

mcdonalds breakfast

Starting in April, several McDonald’s locations in San Diego will finally give customers all-day access to the breakfast menu.

In a company statement to the Chicago Tribune, McDonald’s notes:

“We know our customers love McDonald’s breakfast and they tell us they’d like to enjoy it beyond the morning hours. So next month, we will begin testing all-day breakfast at select restaurants in the San Diego area. We look forward to learning from this test, and it’s premature to speculate on any outcomes.”

McDonald’s has avoided the all-day breakfast option in the past noting a lack of shelf and grill space as the main factors. However, the move makes sense given the fact that breakfast accounts for 25 percent of the company’s sales, and a recent National Restaurant Association survey pointed out that roughly 70 percent of Americans want to dine on breakfast dishes around-the-clock.

Those two factors, combined with the company’s recent struggles, may have finally given McDonald’s the push it needed.

The waffle taco is dead. Long live the biscuit taco.

Taco Bell’s latest creation is the Biscuit Taco. It tested in places like San Antonio, Atlanta, and Los Angeles last year and it’s rolling out nationwide on March 26th complete with a biscuit shell, egg, cheese, your choice of chicken or sausage and jalapeño honey dipping sauce.

These McDonald’s french fry gloves will have you nibbling your fingers. They were designed by ad agency Moroch and sadly don’t appear to be for sale (until someone on Etsy gets wind of this anyway). So, you’ll have to console yourself with a trip out for dinner to get the real thing tonight.

Japan will be getting a Burger King fragrance called “Flame-Grilled” in honor of Whopper Day on April 1st. Yes, even though that is also April Fools’ Day the product appears to be real—as is the unofficial holiday. Burger King Japan even registered it with the Japanese Anniversary Association.

According to Fashion Snap, the word “whopper” can also mean “lie” so making April 1st the official Whopper Day makes some sense. Again, it’s far too early to be celebrating April Fools’, and there’s nothing that indicates that this is a joke thus far.

So, assuming that this is the real deal, the limited edition scent will go on sale for 5,000 yen or about $42 and will come with a Whopper. It’ll be one to a customer when they go on sale at 10:30 in the morning.

And because smelling like a burger isn’t enough to celebrate Whopper Day, they’re also offering a Whopper Pass for 30 days of Whopper meals from April 1st through the 30th. They usually cost around $6.93 each and the pass will be $41 so that’ll be quite a steal, assuming you can manage 30 of them in a single month.

Cap'n Crunch Delights

The people who design the dessert menu at Taco Bell must be tapped into the 2 am collective munchiness because they consistently come up with some of the most insane but delicious ideas ever.

Continuing their tradition of desserts that make you want to make a run for the border, they’re introducing Cap’n Crunch Delights—which are basically fried cereal balls stuffed with “sweet cereal milk” icing.

Taco Bell is currently testing them at select Bakersfield, CA locations, but if they test well, they’ll be rolling them out nationwide.

We’re pretty sure that they’ll pass that test with flying colors.

Due to the rampant popularity of honey butter chips in South Korea, McDonald’s chains in the country are planning on introducing honey butter french fries fairly soon. The fries will be available from February 27 to March 8, and I have a feeling that they’re going to be a real hit.

I have to admit, I’m a little jealous. Honey butter French fries sound amazing don’t they?

KFC recently announced that they will be offering Seattle’s Best coffee at its UK locations, and decided to take the launch a step further by pouring the brew into specially designed edible cups.

The chain teamed up with food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

With names like “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and “Seattle’s Best Coffee”, you’d think the states would be the perfect place to debut such an item – but for the time being they will only be offered at a limited number of locations around the UK.

Xbox fans will probably be happy to hear that Triple-O’s, a fast food chain in Hong Kong, has partnered with Microsoft to create a “Xbox One” burger. This is a limited-time only offer, and it looks like the burger either comes with a beef patty and Triple “O” sauce or a grilled chicken patty with honey mustard mayo. Microsoft is also planning on including vouchers with the burger for consoles bundles as part of a broader celebration of the Lunar New Year.

Two teens in Australia bought this McDonald’s burger for a friend in 1995, but the friend didn’t show up. So, instead of finding its way into someone else’s stomach or the trash, it was stored… for 20 freaking years. There are plenty stories about old McDonald’s burgers floating around the Internet, but this one might be the oldest. As you might have guessed, it is also completely bereft of mold.

It is now rock hard and lives in a padlocked wooden box. Imagine the surprise of some future treasure hunter who digs that sucker up.

If this wasn’t weird enough, the duo recorded a song called “Free The Burger” that explains the whole story. Check it out after the break along with an additional pic.
