McDonald’s has a reputation of serving some of the best fountain Coca-Cola around, and now we know the reason. [click to continue…]

One would have thought that the humble drinking straw had peaked in terms of innovation—but McDonald’s wasn’t satisfied. They sought a solution that would deliver optimal chocolate and mint flavor to customers enjoying their new Chocolate Shamrock Shake. To accomplish this herculean task, they employed a team of crack aerospace engineers to put their considerable skills to the ultimate test. [click to continue…]

McDonald’s is calling it a “Big Mac ATM” but, whatever you call it, the bottom line is that a real machine that’s dedicated to dispensing the Big Mac, Mac Jr, and Grand Mac spent an afternoon delivering free burgers in Boston yesterday. [click to continue…]

You may have heard that McDonald’s recently gave away 10,000 bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce as part of an in-store promotion. Naturally, this freebie promotion has turned out to be little more than than a source of revenue for eBay sellers. Currently, many of the bottles are hovering around $100-$150, with one ballsy individual trying to move bottle number #6104 for $50,000. I mean, it’s not even #1! We know from past experience that a collectible like that can actually sell for over $15K.

Big Mac sauce is little more than thousand island dressing people! Don’t be fooled!

Once again, tasty treats that would sell like crazy in the US are being sold elsewhere. This time it’s McDonald’s launching an entire Oreo McCafe menu in Hong Kong. The list of stuff that we probably won’t be tasting any time soon includes Oreo Tiramisu, Oreo Tiramisu Latte, Iced Oreoccino and a Chocolate Cheese Tart that Brand Eating describes as “a baked Oreo tart shell filled with melted chocolate and cream cheese”.

It will be available for a limited time in Hong Kong, but here’s hoping that Oreo learns something from the Oreo Creme Egg situation and brings this menu to the states.

If you’re going to attack Wendy’s on Twitter, you had better have a solid argument because they aren’t going to lie down and take it with typical PR-speak. Apparently, they’re not afraid to embarrass you so badly that you feel compelled to delete your Twitter account. [click to continue…]

If you are the kind of person that doesn’t abide oily fingers, but feels that eating fried chicken with a fork and knife is taboo, KFC Japan has a solution. [click to continue…]

Say what you want about Arby’s food, but their Twitter game is unmatched in terms of nerdiness—especially when it comes to gaming. However, they aren’t afraid to tackle topics from all corners of pop culture. Take, for example, the following tweet featuring the Thousand Sunny ship from One Piece made out of food containers sailing on a sea of curly fries. [click to continue…]

The movie Napoleon Dynamite and tater tots are inexorably linked. Realizing the commercial potential of this bond, Burger King reunited Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez (aka Napoleon and Pedro) to herald the limited time return of the chain’s cheesy tots.

The downside is that they don’t appear in character – but since a sequel will probably never happen, we have to take what we can get. Watch it below. [click to continue…]
