The waffle taco is dead. Long live the biscuit taco.

Taco Bell’s latest creation is the Biscuit Taco. It tested in places like San Antonio, Atlanta, and Los Angeles last year and it’s rolling out nationwide on March 26th complete with a biscuit shell, egg, cheese, your choice of chicken or sausage and jalapeño honey dipping sauce.

These McDonald’s french fry gloves will have you nibbling your fingers. They were designed by ad agency Moroch and sadly don’t appear to be for sale (until someone on Etsy gets wind of this anyway). So, you’ll have to console yourself with a trip out for dinner to get the real thing tonight.

Culinary mad genius Tym Bussanich has done the unimaginable: he somehow found a way to stuff an onion ring with a burger patty. He used an onion circle, wrapped it up with bacon, and then packed the circle with ground burger meat before deep-battering and then frying it. Just… wow.

Due to the rampant popularity of honey butter chips in South Korea, McDonald’s chains in the country are planning on introducing honey butter french fries fairly soon. The fries will be available from February 27 to March 8, and I have a feeling that they’re going to be a real hit.

I have to admit, I’m a little jealous. Honey butter French fries sound amazing don’t they?

Xbox fans will probably be happy to hear that Triple-O’s, a fast food chain in Hong Kong, has partnered with Microsoft to create a “Xbox One” burger. This is a limited-time only offer, and it looks like the burger either comes with a beef patty and Triple “O” sauce or a grilled chicken patty with honey mustard mayo. Microsoft is also planning on including vouchers with the burger for consoles bundles as part of a broader celebration of the Lunar New Year.

You’ve probably had bacon on your pizza, but now Little Caesars is wrapping bacon around your pizza. This limited-time offering is a regular deep-dish pizza with 3.5 feet of bacon wrapped around the crust. From USA Today:

“Every time you take a bite out of the crust, you’ll get bacon,” says David Scrivano, CEO at Little Caesars. The pizza also comes with pepperoni and has bacon sprinkled on top. The promotion replaces the chain’s Soft Pretzel Crust Pizza.

Now, all you have to do is order your bacon-wrapped pizza with extra bacon topping and your heart attack for dinner will be complete.

It’s rare that we pay attention to what’s written on the bags and cups that hold our food, but you’ll want to look a little more closely at your cup next time you eat at Chipotle. The fast food chain’s Cultivating Thought program was first announced back in May, but now we know it will include famous writers Gaiman, Jeffrey Eugenides, Amy Tan, Barbara Kingsolver, Paulo Coelho, and comedian Aziz Ansari decorating their cups and bags.

The words won’t just be straight out of works the authors have already penned, but new material designed to make you think about something you might not have considered. Gaiman, for example, chose to write about refugees for his cup. If you’re not a fan of Chipotle, you can still read everything at the Cultivating Thought website.

Rest assured, the number one ingredient is potatoes. However, they do add a few extra, scary sounding things. Dextrose, natural sugar, and corn oil are okay, but dimethylpolysiloxane is a little hard to swallow.

These fun photos are the work of Rebecca Rütten who is a German photographer. She took photos of people with modern-day fast food posed to look like paintings straight out of the Renaissance. She calls them Contemporary Pieces and explains them thusly:

During the conception of “Contemporary Pieces, “I became enamored with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. In the Late Renaissance, Italian and Dutch painters dealt with the middle and lower classes. In my opinion, Fast Food Culture represents these two social classes in the United States today. To eat healthy is expensive. However, one can buy large amounts of food at a fast food restaurant for a comparatively low price.

Tacos and donuts have never looked so elegant.
