There’s a new champion in the world of unholy fast food mashups, and you’ll be able to find it at Burger King. In select Southern California locations that is.
Don’t worry though—something tells me that Mac n’ Cheetos is too amazingly preposterous to die in the testing phase. It should launch nationwide soon enough.
With that in mind, you’ll be happy to know that 5-pieces will only set you back $2.49 and each order will include ranch dipping sauce (because mac n’ cheese covered in Cheetos dust just isn’t a long enough trip to flavor country).

In an effort to bring the world food as it was in the 18th century, YouTuber Jonathan Townsend has recreated fried chicken using an old English recipe from 1736.
Sourced from Nathan Bailey’s Dictionarium Domesticum, the preparation differs from present-day fried chicken in virtually every way, though the results look the same. Instead of a typical buttermilk-based marinade, this recipe involves a three hour soak in lemon juice and malt vinegar, and replacing wet and dry breading with a single-step application of flour and white wine.
As for the frying itself, is is believed that lard or or clarified butter were typically used in place of vegetable oil.

There’s finally a way to get a deep fried Twinkie without having to go to a county fair – and we have Hostess and Walmart to thank. According to Associated Press retail writer Anne D’Innocenzio, the companies have joined forces to bring the product exclusively to Walmart shelves for a period of one year. [click to continue…]
DudeFoods has given birth to another fried creation that will cause widespread drooling and hunger pangs.
As revealed in the video below, the Deep Fried Doritos Breaded Qdoba Burrito involves dipping the burrito in egg, rolling it in Doritos and dropping it into some 375 degree oil. Unfortunately, there’s no word on how it actually tasted, but for many that question is likely already answered just by looking at the ingredient list. [click to continue…]
For San Francisco’s Stupid Sh*t No One Needs and Terrible Ideas “Hackathon”, Jonathan Marcus decided to utilize a process called “spherification” to actually deep fry water.
The method uses calcium alginate, which surrounds liquids with a membrane that gives them a shape and the ability to be handled like solids. Although spherification is utilized in upscale restaurants for all kinds of dishes and drinks, frying it is massively dangerous. One leak could allow the hot oil to contact the water, resulting in a violent explosion that could lead to fires and third degree burns. So the “stupid sh*t” and “terrible ideas” labels are very appropriate.
Check out the demonstration below, and be sure to never, never try it. [click to continue…]
Using a doll house set, mini tools and mini ingredient portions, the mystery chef at Miniature Space has shown the world how to create dime-sized donuts with chocolate and vanilla glaze.
Although the result makes the average Dunkin’ Donuts munchkin look like meal for a giant, we imagine that the calorie count is still depressingly high.
See how they were made in the video below.

If there’s one thing that Deadpool loves more than breaking the fourth wall and swearing, it’s chimichangas! As a nod to the Deadpool movie and its star Ryan Reynolds, Cantina Dos Segundos in Philadelphia added a new dish to their menu: the Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga. I’m sure Ryan would appreciate the nice Canadian touch to the dish, and Deadpool… well, Deadpool would definitely love this delicious-looking chimichanga.
Cantina Dos Segundos posted the dish’s ingredients on Instagram:
Braised short rib, French fries, Fried cheese curd Black beans, Bacon, Pickled red onion & jalapeño. served with a side of short rib au jus, topped with sour cream onion, scallion, cilantro.

Prepare to obsess over the “Fried Maltella”, a giant ball of fried vanilla ice cream, Nutella, crushed Maltesers malt balls and hot, salted caramel sauce.
Unfortunately, the only way to try it is to visit Sydney-based café Piccolo Me, or figure out how to make it yourself.
Eating it will likely spark a massively unhealthy obsession. Not being able to eat it will likely cause you to descend into madness. Either way, it will be your downfall.
Check out a Vine video of the Fried Maltella below, along with more mouth-watering pics—if you can handle it.

Starting on Dec. 1st, McDonald’s chains in Niigata Prefecture will be offering a 48-piece bucket of McNuggets for 1,800 yen ($15). If you’re counting, that’s eight more than the 40 piece McNugget bucket that’s available in the US.
The deal is part of a promotional tie-in for a idol pop group called NGT48, which is an off-shoot of the super popular idol group, AKB48.
NGT48 sounds a lot like “Nugget 48” after all.
When you purchase a 48-nugget set, you’ll receive a promotional container that’s decorated with images of NGT48 members. Chains in the area will also offer paper tray covers and limited-edition, collectible commemorative cards with each order.
The promotional sale will continue until those Niigata chains run out of the special packages.
Check out more pics after the break…
On Tuesday, McDonald’s U.S. President Mike Andres announced that the chain’s new mini cheese sticks will be added to their dollar menu nationwide in 2016.
Reaction was swift:
The move came after the mozzarella sticks were successfully tested at select restaurants earlier this year. To be honest, I’m not even sure why they bothered with the test. I mean, three cheese sticks for a buck. Duh.
