As part of a new promotional partnership with Nintendo, Sonic Drive-In restaurants will begin offering Mario & Luigi Paper Jam toys with their “Wacky Pack” meals starting on April 19 and running through June 30th.

There are five different toys to collect. Fortunately, I’m secure enough in my manhood to buy something called a “Wacky Pack” without a child present.

Fast food fanatics will no doubt be flocking to St. Joseph, Missouri to take advantage of an all-you-can-eat fries offer from a new McDonald’s that will open in July.

But this won’t be just any McDonald’s. This new location is being touted as the “McDonald’s of the future”—a 6,500 sq ft restaurant that will also offer new menu items, customizable burgers, a private play room and push-button table-side service.

Take a peek inside after the break…

Bots! They’re not just trying to get your credit card info via AOL Instant Messenger anymore. Now they want to sell you tacos. Taco Bell has partnered with community messaging service Slack to introduce a chat bot that you can use to order… well, whatever you like, be it a couple of beef tacos or a Cheesy Gordita Crunch. It can also help you select your fillings and make recommendations—and it does it all with a little personality.

Love Taco Bell but worry about where all of the ingredients come from? Maybe you just want to improve the quality or get more for your money. If so, the Brothers Green can help.

The duo have created a series of videos showing how to make the chain’s classic menu items at home, including (among others) tacos, Mexican pizza, quesadillas, Baja gordita, chalupa and grilled stuffed burrito as well as the basics such as ground beef, refried beans, fire sauce and nacho cheese sauce.

The creations can reportedly be made using ingredients that can be found a typical supermarket, although they will likely require you to “splurge just a little”.

McDonald’s Japan is gearing up to supersize the Big Mac with a new “Giga Big Mac” burger that will be taller and wider than a conventional Big Mac and offer four, rather than two, beef patties for “2.8 times more meat”.

It’s described as being perfect for diners looking for “a satisfied sense of accomplishment”.

Yeah, make sure to take a picture that’s suitable for framing.

The chain is upping the ante further by selling “grand size” add-ons such as 1.7 times more fries and drinks that are twice as large as a conventional offering.

The Giga Big Mac and associated add-ons will debut at select McDonald’s locations in Japan beginning today.

If you never experienced the sh*tty rite of passage known as a retail or fast food job, YouTuber “theodd1sout comic” has provided a video to help fill you in.

The animated clip provides an overview of one man’s adventures working at Subway (or “Sooubway”)—and by “adventures” I mean dealing with micro-managing bosses, bacon fires, uncooperative security alarms and pothead co-workers.

Through a series of videos, HellthyJunkFood is teaching the world how to make healthier examples of fast food items.

The most recent production, filmed at cost of $70 over a 10 hour period, takes aim at In-N-Out Burger’s entire secret menu, including the 3×3 and Flying Dutchman, right down to the grilling techniques used on the chain’s Animal Style burger.

YouTuber “Tito4re” recently decided to find out what would happen to a Big Mac if it was doused with molten copper. As you’ll see in the demonstration video after the jump, the burger actually put up a decent fight, especially considering that copper’s melting point is 1,984°F.

See how it turns out in the video below.

Just in time for Easter, McDonald’s Australia is rolling out a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry that combines the iconic chocolate eggs with a McFlurry’s staple soft serve ice cream. The result contains a whopping 14 teaspoons of sugar—which makes my teeth hurt just to think about.

The Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry is available down under for a limited time.

Did you need to know what a Whopper looks like when topped with $80 worth of pickles? I sure as hell didn’t. Yet here we are.

As part of their ongoing series of articles about ordering Whoppers with ridiculous quantities of adornments, RocketNews24 sent one of their Japan-based writers to a Burger King armed with a 10,000 yen bill – approximately $88-ish dollars – and told him to spend the bulk of that money on pickles. Pickles. Having it your way just went horribly wrong.

This burger is adorned with slightly over 700 individual pickles, and weighs in at 1.7 kg (just under four pounds).
