10 Stunt Foods That Are So Weird, You HAVE to Try Them

From cheeseburger pizzas to waffle tacos, these are our "favorite" artery-clogging fast food concoctions.
Published

In the digital age, going viral is an all-important way to spread your brand. For restaurants, an easy way to make that happen is to invent a disgusting and/or over-the-top food that makes people's arteries seize up just by thinking about it.

Customers feel compelled to try this "specialty food" — which is usually highly-publicized in the media, because it's just so ridiculous — and share the experience with their various social followers. Thus, the digital age has encouraged the proliferation of stunt food.

Here are 10 of our favorite attention-grabbing junk food offenders.

Readers, what do you think? Have you tried any of these stunt foods? Were they delicious or disgusti-licious? Tell us your favorite nightmare food, in the comments, below!

I was on a ketogenic diet, which is to eat as little carbs as possible (>50 grams per day) and make your body use fat for energy and lose weight.

It works. I lost 60 pounds in less than 6 months. And the Double Down is, compared to almost all other fast foods, quite low in carbs (11 grams) and that's because of the breading of the chicken patties.

I lost weight eating that. Does it sounds ridiculous and unbelievable? Absolutely, it does. Are there other factors? Yes.

But it is just two chicken patties with cheese and bacon in between. Its not like you're not already eating such a thing, except holding it with two pieces of bread.

The KFC Double Down was the grossest thing I've ever had from a fast food restaurant hands down (McD's Mighty Wings a close second). The chicken had a slimy rubbery texture and tasted like fatty under-cooked chicken skin . I kept having to take it out of my mouth to see if I was chewing on cartilage or chicken fat, but I wasn't. it was as if they injected the chicken with a greasy silicone sealant. Blech!

I tried the Tacobell breakfast taco waffle thing...it was not as good as it sounds. I thought that it would be sweet like a McGriddle, but the waffle had a bitter taste to it. I wouldn't buy it again.

I just wish someone would come out with the Taco Town Taco.
(favorite food skit ever!)

I am one of few people whose doctors told them to eat as much bacon (or other junk) as I could. post esophagus cancer (removed esophagus) I have had problems. Not wasting away to nothing was one. No Calorie Wasted!
