Taco Bell is back on the hunt for the next crazy item to add to their menu, and it looks like they’re taking inspiration from KFCs infamous Double Down. Enter the Naked Crispy Chicken Taco (sort of a terrifying name, really) that’s currently being tested at select locations in Southern California.

A Reddit user spotted the taco on the menus of two Taco Bells in Bakersfield and Lost Hills, and it runs for about $2.99 (or $4.99 for a combo). It features a “taco shell” that’s actually crispy chicken, along with lettuce, cheese, avocado ranch sauce and tomato.

sushi-cake

Sushi for dessert? What if it’s shaped like a cake? With my current cooking skill set, I think layering sushi ingredients would be easier than rolling them up.

Using a bowl as a guide, take two sheets of nori paper and cut them into circles. Add the first layer of rice, then avocado, and last the sushi.  Finally stack both layers on top of each other to complete the cake. Then grab some spicy sauce and chopsticks and call your friend over. Or keep it for yourself, I won’t judge.

Lately Australia’s milkshakes have become increasingly outrageous, but photographer Alana Dimou has brought them to a whole new level of insanity. She created three ridiculous milkshake concoctions: S’Mores Chicken, Bacon Burger, and Coles Baked Fresh Today Bakery Aisle. The last one is basically a family sized breakfast, in a milkshake.

On her blog Alana explains what these extreme shakes are all about:

“Be inspired. Eat marshmallows and chicken. Milkshake flavours are irrelevant now, the duty falls upon whatever lies on top. May God have mercy on us all.”

These towering treats are not for sale, but they are amazing to look at. Check out close-ups after the break.

Get me a spoon and a plane ticket to Sydney, I need to nom these. My Sweet Boutique coffee and waffle food truck makes incredibly mouth-watering Nutella waffle creations presented in personalized mason jars. They’re like chocolate breakfast baristas that can spell.

Those Aussies sure do know how to make over the top milkshakes.

Say hello to the Tella Ball Shake.

It’s the brainchild of Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery in Sydney, Australia, and combines a doughnut, Nutella and a milkshake into one extreme dessert. Running at A$10, this formidable sweet treat features a sugar-coated, Nutella-filled doughnut ball that’s plopped on top of a Nutella-based milkshake.

Aki Daikos, the owner of the cafe, and his business partner Simon Kappatos came up with the idea for the shake after they decided to combine the cafe’s two top desserts (the Tella Ball and the Nutella Shake) into one item. So far, shake sales have been good–almost too good. Daikos told Mashable Australia that the demand has been non-stop.

“We made 400 Tella Balls today, and we ran out at 11 a.m. this morning,” he noted. “We used around 30 kilograms of Nutella today, it’s been really crazy. We had to close early today as we ran out of milk.”

5-sausage-corn-dog-1

Standard corn dogs are pretty delicious, but Nick from DudeFoods figured out a rather clever way to ratchet up the flavor factor–he created a corn dog that includes the five different “racing sausages” featured at Milwaukee Brewers home games (bratwurst, chorizo, hot dog, Italian and Polish) along with a batter recipe from Allrecipies.com.

Nick posted a video on Instragram (which you can check out below) that shows how these magnificent corn dogs were created.

freakshow-milkshakes

Update my Facebook profile now, because I am having a serious relationship with these milkshakes. Canberra, Australia-based café, Pâtissez is responsible for the milkshake to end all other milkshakes, and it is aptly named The Freakshow.

These dangerous looking desserts take the traditional recipe of milk and ice cream and stuff syrup, whipped cream, candy, pieces of cake, and your wildest dreams into a mason jar and then hand you a spoon. They’re as big as your head.

Yes. Please.

Aside from these gigantic sugar-rush drinks, Pâtissez creates a wonderful array of whimsical cakes. Check out more mouth watering pics after the break…

bacon-french-toast-roll-up

Two of breakfast’s favorite menu items have joined forces to become powerfully delicious bacon French toast roll ups. It’s so simple I don’t know why I didn’t think of it.

Thank the foodie gods that Recipe Tin Eats had a moment of brilliance and shared this marvelous treat with us. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a professional chef to make these salty and sweet snacks at home. Just cook bacon slices as usual, grab some super fresh bread (you don’t need anything fancier than regular sandwich style), roll it, dip it in eggs, and then fry those bad boys up.

I believe we shall all have a wonderful morning, starting tomorrow.

Check out more mouth-watering, bacony pics after the break.
