What happened to fast food restaurants just serving good, old-fashioned burgers and fries?!

Though fast food has always been synonymous with convenience, there have been some menu items in the past that have left customers scratching their heads or, truthfully, feeling sick to their stomachs. And KFC’s latest endeavor – the Chizza — may just be one of those items. 

From random ingredient combinations to downright bizarre concoctions, fast food chains have occasionally missed the mark in their attempt to appeal to adventurous palates. Let’s take a closer look at the top 10 grossest items fast-food restaurants thought we’d love.

The KFC Double Down

Ah, the infamous KFC Double Down — a monstrous creation that replaces the traditional bun with two fried chicken fillets, sandwiching bacon, cheese, and sauce in between. With an astronomical calorie count and saturated fat content, this heart-stopping sandwich is certainly a coronary catastrophe waiting to happen.

McDonald’s McRib

While the McRib has its dedicated fan base, its mysterious rib-shaped patty and unnatural appearance raise questions about its origins. Where did this exactly come from?! And, with a laundry list of unpronounceable ingredients and questionable texture, it’s certainly not for everybody. 

Burger King’s Mac n’ Cheetos

Do we really need to be combining Cheetos and mac n’ cheese?! Burger King’s Mac n’ Cheetos is essentially macaroni and cheese encased in a crispy Cheetos-flavored shell. While it may sound like a dream come true for junk food lovers, the reality is this menu item leaves diners feeling more guilty than satisfied.

Arby’s Meat Mountain

This is for meat lovers and meat lovers only. As its name suggests, Arby’s Meat Mountain is a towering monstrosity of various meats, including roast beef, turkey, ham, and bacon, all piled high between two buns. While it may appeal to carnivores looking for a protein-packed meal, the Meat Mountain is simply way too much meat.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

People love mixing savory and sweet, especially when it comes to their breakfast. However, this Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich is not the best combination. While it may satisfy those with a sweet tooth, the combination of savory eggs, cheese, and bacon with sugary donuts is a culinary abomination that’s best left untouched.

KFC’s Chizza

What do you get when you combine pizza and fried chicken? The Chizza, of course! KFC has just released this international sensation in restaurants across the country and, well, it’s certainly unique.

The Chizza — which originally launched in the Phillippines back in 2015 — comprises of two pieces of fried chicken filets topped with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni. While this may be popular around the world, the jury is still out on whether Americans will give it a shot. 

Pizza Hut’s Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza

In a bold attempt to reinvent the classic pizza, Pizza Hut introduced a crust stuffed with mini hot dogs and topped with mustard drizzle. However, the question must be asked — do we need to reinvent pizza?! The answer is no.

In fact, the combination of savory pizza and processed meat proved too overwhelming for many taste buds.

Jack in the Box’s Bacon Milkshake

Yes, you read that right — a bacon milkshake. Blurring the lines between sweet and savory, this beverage combines vanilla ice cream with bacon-flavored syrup, topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. While some adventurous eaters may appreciate the novelty, the overwhelming artificial bacon flavor left others feeling downright sick. 

Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chalupa

In a departure from traditional taco shells, this item features a shell made entirely of fried chicken, filled with lettuce, tomato, cheese, and avocado ranch sauce. While it may satisfy cravings for both tacos and fried chicken, the truth is, does anybody need to be eating tacos and fried chicken at the same time?!

Burger King’s Bacon Sundae

Bacon Sundae

Ah, another bacon item. This dessert from Burger King features vanilla soft serve topped with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and — of course —crumbled bacon. While bacon has found its way into numerous unexpected dishes, its inclusion in a sundae is certainly a divisive choice.
