The Curse of the Black Whopper 21 of the Most WTF Fast Food Items ...

For a while there, people thought the Black Whopper was a joke – surely no fast food joint would offer a black burger to the hungry masses, right? Yeah, no, they did. Once the legitimacy of the Black Whopper was revealed, Whopper fans got kind of excited. It looked spooky, the premise was kind of cool, and the ingredients list included plenty of A-1 Steak Sauce. What could go wrong? Green poo. Green poo could go wrong. As Burger King's fellow fast food purveyors learned, however, plenty of other things can go wrong in the world of quick eats.

The Black Whopper

I know it features in the title, but I just have to include this. I have to because I wonder if Burger King didn't have a green poo problem when they were testing this item. Not that it's a huge deal, it's just … I imagine it's disconcerting to find that after you've digested.


Taco Bell's Bell Beefer

This was Taco Bell's attempt to create a sandwich. It wasn't a burger, of course. It was originally designed to be a sort of taco on a hamburger bun, although it resembled a Sloppy Joe. It hasn't been around since the '80s but there are still people clamoring for its return. Never gonna happen.



It might be surprising that simple spaghetti could qualify as a particularly WTF fast food item, but here's the thing – McDonald's should never make spaghetti.


McDonald's McSpaghetti dish is one of the most bizarre fast food items ever created. It's a dish that has been around since the early 1980s and is still available in some countries, though it was never widely popular. The dish consists of spaghetti noodles topped with a tomato-based sauce and either ground beef or Italian sausage. It is served with a side of garlic toast and a packet of Parmesan cheese.

The dish has been met with mixed reviews. Some people say the sauce is too sweet and the meat is too dry, while others find it to be an acceptable fast food item. The dish is also high in calories and sodium, with a single serving containing around 600 calories and 1,300 milligrams of sodium.

In addition to the nutritional concerns, some people are also concerned about the ingredients used in the dish. The spaghetti noodles are made with enriched wheat flour, which is a processed form of wheat flour that has been stripped of much of its nutritional content. The tomato sauce is made with high fructose corn syrup, which is a highly processed sweetener that has been linked to health problems such as obesity and diabetes.


BK's Enormous Omelet Sandwich

This was Burger King's answer to breakfast for a time. Unfortunately, it was also the answer to a question no one ever asked. It was too big for breakfast, too fattening, too heavy, and too covered in cheese.


Subway's Tuna Sub

So technically speaking, there wasn't anything terribly offensive about this – except for the fact that Subway made some tuna salad. That being said, once upon a time, there was apparently a label on Subway's tuna. It informed everyone that there were no turtles or dolphins in the tuna. Uh...


Subway's Tuna Sub is a classic sandwich that has been around for many years. It is made with tuna, mayonnaise, and other ingredients. Despite its popularity, Subway has been criticized for its use of tuna in the past. In the early days, a label on the sandwich informed customers that there were no turtles or dolphins in the tuna. This was meant to bring attention to the fact that tuna fishing has been linked to the death of sea turtles and dolphins. Despite the controversy, Subway's Tuna Sub remains a popular menu item today.


KFC's Double down

Really, what could be wrong with using two pieces of deep fried chicken as a bun? Maybe the inevitable heart attacks, I don't know. Then again, as much as I love the Colonel's coleslaw, I could never eat a sandwich made out of fried chicken.


Pizza Hut's P'Zone

In theory, this probably seemed like a good idea. The almost-portmanteau of the name suggests a combination of a pizza and a calzone. Cool, right? Yeah, no. the end result was a towering burger, on a bun, dressed with pizza sauce, pepperoni, tomatoes, banana peppers, and cheese sticks (I think). Ugh.


The Hulaburger

McDonald's has a history of coming up with regional and seasonal recipes. That's why you can still get McDonald's lobster rolls in New England (don't ever do it). That is not what this is. It might seem like a ploy to get people from Hawaii to eat more fast food, but Ray Kroc came up with the pineapple burger as a way to entice Catholics to eat fast food on Fridays, suggesting that he perhaps did not actually no any Catholics.


Jollibee's Tuna Pie

Jollibee is a fast food chain from the Philippines. It's had some luck in the States, mainly in California. Though the joint offers plenty of options, the Tuna Pie is … well, it's something. I can't speak on its taste, I can only speak on its appearance, which looks a lot like a fruit pie. Trying to imagine a hot tuna filling coming out of a pie shell just skeeves me out.


Pizza Hut Japan's Winter Double King Pizza

This is a real thing. This actually happened. Do you know what this pizza has on it? Mayonnaise. And shrimp. And corn. And crab. And a demi-glace. And a crust that is firmly stuffed with shrimp that has been filled with mayo. I promise I am not trying to trash talk any country or culture's individual tastes, but … come on.


Denny's Hooburrito

Denny's is more of a diner than a fast food restaurant, but whatever, you get that Rutti Tutti Fresh 'n Fruity plate pretty fast. The chain is known for its sometimes dubious collaborations. The Hooburrito was the spawn of Denny's “Rock 'n Roll Favorites,” a menu of late-night foods inspired by a variety of, ahem, popular bands. We have Hoobastank to thank for the Hooburrito, which was smothered in three different types of cheese and cheese-like products.


Friendly's Grilled Cheese Burger Melt

This hamburger has a bun made out of grilled cheese sandwiches. To eat this burger, you must also eat two sandwiches. The burger comes on two grilled cheese sandwiches. Oh my god.


The McAfrika

McDonald's came up with this during the Olympic games in 2002. It's a WTF item mostly because of unfortunate timing and really horrible marketing – like the name, for instance. The sandwiches concept was actually pretty good, but it purported to be an “authentic African recipe” and McDonald's intoduced it when South Africa was experiencing a devastating famine.


BK Satisfries

This made me sad because I love crinkle-cut fries. Unfortunately, in an effort to introduce healthier menu items, Burger King kind of forgot about taste. As a result, their Satisfries tasted more like crinkle-cut cardboard and salt.



Why so WTF? Well, you had to put the burger together yourself. It came in a Styrofoam container with the patty on one side and all the fixings on the other, so you could build your own burger. However, that's messy and inconvenient – even in 1984, McDonald's customers weren't feeling the idea of putting together their own burgers. Plus, oh yeah, all that Styrofoam was an environmental nightmare.


Pizza Hut's Priazzo

What the hell's the matter with Pizza Hut? This '80s wonder was marketed as Pizza Hut's take on Chicago-style deep dish. Unfortunately, it was awful. It had two crusts, layers upon layers of cheese, and a variety of pork-based toppings. It took forever to make and doesn't look like anything you'd ever want to put in your mouth.


Pizza Hut UK's Cheeseburger Stuffed-Crust Pizza

Seriously, wtf, Pizza Hut? Don't even make me describe this. This stuffed-crust trend needs to end. Unless you're stuffing crust with cheese, just stop.


Wendy's Triple Baconator

I just take issue with this because there is SO MUCH MEAT. I can't say much because my dad has eaten this (and lived to tell the tale), but seriously, there are three patties on this thing.


Dunkin' Donuts' Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

I know how gross this looks. It is gross. But it's also so delicious. So, so delicious.


Taco Bell's Waffle Taco

Same. I don't know what made Taco Bell decide to take on breakfast and I would like to say they shouldn't have, but sometimes … sometimes food like this is just the best thing you ever tasted.


Wendy's Pulled Pork Sandwich


What's the grossest thing you've ever seen and/or tasted from a fast food menu? Anyone succumb to the curse of the Black Whopper?
