Because you can never have too much meat on a burger, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are introducing the “Most American Thickburger” on May 20th. This behemoth will feature a beef patty topped with a split hot dog and a layer of Lay’s potato chips.

Forget about the diet because this thing packs 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

You’ll be able to get one for $5.79 on its own or for $8.29 as a combo with fries and a drink, because you know you want fries with that.

Domino’s is introducing a new ordering system on May 20th which will allow customers to order a pizza by tweeting an emoji to @Dominos on twitter. Their CEO told USA Today:

It’s the epitome of convenience…we’ve got this down to a five-second exchange.

Details on how they’ll know exactly what kind of pizza you want or where you live haven’t been announced. I just hope setting things up isn’t too complicated. After all, I’m way too lazy to order a pizza over the phone or through an app.

The problem with getting a bag of food from McDonald’s is finding a way to eat it without making a mess. Sometimes it involves hastily arranged napkins on your desk or balancing food in your lap, so McDonald’s Hungary and agency DDB Budapest have tackled the problem with a brilliant new bag design.

The bottom is made from reinforced cardboard with a tearaway strip so the whole thing can serve as a tray. It’s big enough and sturdy enough to hold a large-sized meal without collapsing. Clever!

McDonald’s has introduced a Create Your Taste menu that allows you to make exactly the kind of burger that you want to eat. There’s kiosk where you make all of your selections, so of course someone had to see just how big a burger they could build. You start with an “artisanal bun” and two quarter pound patties, then add:

10 slices of sharp white cheese
10 slices of pepper jack cheese
10 pieces of bacon
10x pickles
10x red onions
10x guacamole
10x tortilla strips
10x lettuce
10x tomatoes
10x jalapenos
10x grilled onions
10x grilled mushrooms
with 10x mac special sauce, 10x mayo, 5x spicy mayo, 10x sweet BBQ sauce, 10x creamy garlic sauce, 10x mustard, 10x ketchup

Moshe Tamssot built this monster which he calls “The Big Max”. He also ordered fries and a Diet Coke. It all came to just under $25 and weighed almost 4 pounds.

The aptly named Sticky’s Finger Joint, a chicken fingers chain eatery in NYC, recently unveiled their latest creation: cotton candy French fries. The dish blends delicious cotton candy with salty French fries, and special orders come with strawberry Pop Rocks and caramel sauce. God help us all.

Everybody loves spaghetti and meatballs, right? Well, there is one downside to the dish–you can’t exactly eat it on the go. Not to worry, because Los Angeles-based eatery The Carving Board has just solved that particular dilemma with their Spaghetti Meatballwich.

The sandwich features buns made from spaghetti along with meatballs and gooey mozzarella. Honestly, how amazing does that look?

Say hello to the “Whole Damn Farm Burger.” This 2,000-calorie, 10-inch tall beauty was crafted by Splendid Kitchen in Manchester, England and it features… well, pretty much every farm animal between two buns.

We’re talking two beef patties, a fried chicken thigh, something called “bacon jam,” normal bacon, “ham chunks” and barbecued pulled pork. Geez, how do you even take a bite out of that thing?

Joel Burger and Ashley King have known each other since kindergarten, but they didn’t start dating until college. Clearly, it was their destiny to fall in love and get married. The Burger King wedding is on.

They are currently trying to get drink koozies with the company’s logo and it looks like Burger King has taken notice. They’ve reached out via twitter in hopes of contacting Mr. Burger and Miss King.

See a picture of the couple at Burger King and the company’s tweet after the break.

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.
