Hey Kids, Have A Snack!
I happened upon an interesting picture that made me think: just how wacky is the food we are currently eating?
I don’t mean chocolate-covered insects, or disgusting snake head soup – even if it exists, this isn’t the kind of food that interests me. I like the concept of this:
Say Hello To My Special Friend!
Yes, I am obsessed with the concept of a “Cheeseburger In A Can”. Go hiking in eastern Europe, and most stores will sell you this to take along.
So I decided to cruise around the internet and see where I landed, to see what was unique, different – yes, WACKY – but edible, and to many, delicious! Here we go:
Thanks to the website Ranker.com, I found this:
A Taco Bell Cheesy Double-Beef Burrito Wrapped In Sausage – a Taco Bell Cheesy Double-Beef Burrito wrapped in a fully cooked, juicy Jimmy Dean Premium Pork sausage.
This was baked by a sausage enthusiast who wraps everything in sausages. It comes in at 146g of fat and 1790 calories. Needless to say, eat at your own risk…
In the past decade, we have heard about state fairs, carnivals and conventions serving up a wide variety of deep-fried goods. Snickers, Twinkies and even Butter have been deep-fried. And now they’ve taken it to a new level. Coke.
Frozen Coca-Cola-flavored batter is deep-fried and topped with Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry.
This was apparently discovered in Texas, and is estimated to have 830 calories per cup and 28 grams of fat…less if you order Diet.
Humma Humma Hummos!
You like hummos? Do you LOVE Hummos? Well then, here you go, 4 metres of it!

Behold The Haggis!
In the mood for something different? Then head to Scotland and dig into some nice Haggis! What is haggis? Well, how about this: oatmeal and spices stuffed tightly inside a sheep’s stomach. You can find Haggis prepared in the traditional way, the stomachs filled with “pluck” (a sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs). The dish is traditionally served with a big glass of scotch and potatoes. Enjoy.
The World’s BIGGEST Burger!
First of all, I would like to thank AP for taking this picture, much as I appreciate the children standing there to keep the size in perspective. Yes, this is the world’ biggest burger…order one today!

The three-foot-high sandwich packs 540,000 calories, takes 22 hours to cook and sells for $2,000. Manager Jason Jones says it comes with fries and a drink.

Darth Vader Burger with Black Bun
Yes yes yes, the French have done it again! The fast food restaurant Quick is selling a Darth Vader burger!
“In connection with the 3D release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999), the French fast food restaurant chain Quick will be selling a Darth Vader burger with a black bun and a Jedi burger (shown in the picture), both available from the 31st of January.”
I found this and other fun stuff at the Website Fastfoodfever.com
And remember, if you have too much to eat, then just take one of these and all is going to be just fine!
