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.

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.

Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille in Pittsburgh, PA has raised the bar for ostentatious beverages by offering this happy hour Bloody Mary that’s garnished with shrimp cocktail and a fried soft-shell crab.

The drink also includes two olive eyeballs that will give you a bizarre and haunting blank stare prior to being consumed.

If you’re a Jets fan, you probably think there’s nothing that can be done to make the team palatable. However, their home turf at MetLife Stadium may have found a way to keep you coming to the games while helping to offset the bitter taste of defeat with this new Jumbo Jet Breakfast Bagel. The 10″ everything bagel boasts two pounds of sausage, four slices of American cheese, potato hash, and four fried eggs in addition to a side of “Jet Fuel” in the form of a spicy green chimichurri sauce – all for the staggeringly high price of $50.

Hopefully they’ll create a version of this for Giants games as well, because they way things are shaping up, their fans will need it more.

For some reason, YouTuber Matt Stonie thought it would be interesting to deep fry a McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich eight times and then eat it.

The process is revealed in the video after the jump, which shows the steps of batter, fry, repeat over and over again until the result looked something like a football on a bun. He then ate layers of pure fried batter, made his way to the tiny fish core, and continued until there was nothing left.

Viewers will no doubt find his thin frame just as surprising as his ability to stomach this thing.

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.

You can’t fault KFC Hong Kong for attempting to combine two of the world’s favorite foods, pizza and fried chicken, into one insane product. But they were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.

Details on the “Napoli Crispy Pizza Chicken” are scarce, but I’m sure it would run amok on your taste buds.

If fairs have taught us anything, it’s that pretty much anything can be fried, put on a stick and sold for an absorbent price. In that spirit, the folks at Peep My Eats created this deep fried Big Mac that was made by coating the burger with eggs, covering it with breadcrumbs, and dipping it in the deep fat fryer and impaling it on a stick for quick and easy food porn.

Amy of Oh Bite It! is always pretty clever when it comes to creating simple, unique and insane snacks and treats. But I have to say, deep fried s’mores are really something else.

Amy placed some chocolate, graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow cream inside a wonton wrap, sealed the sucker up and then fried it. The end result is essentially a s’mores egg roll.
