We don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little fast food craving once in a while but, unfortunately, you can take it go overboard sometimes. It’s not your fault, though. Some restaurants just take things too far—like these 7 fast food picks that we’re classifying as the grossest foods you definitely don’t want to eat. Now, some of these have pretty big followings but, trust us, these weird, gross and otherwise unhealthy fast food menu options should definitely stay off your radar—and out of your stomach.
1. Taco Bell's Waffle Taco
Taco Bell's Waffle Taco
The Mexican fast food giant is currently testing what they're calling the "waffle taco", a low-priced breakfast menu that features a sausage patty and scrambled eggs folded into a waffle. It's available at only a few locations in California so we haven't been able to try it yet, but the combination is enough to make me gag already.
2. KFC's Double Down Sandwich
KFC's Double Down Sandwich
Have you actually taken a close look at this thing? It looks like a wrinkled monster eating cheese, bacon and a "special sauce". It is, in fact, a sandwich whose "bread" is actually two slabs of fried chicken. Can you say "heart attack"? We're pretty sure that our arteries are clogging up just looking at this thing. Yuck!
3. McDonald's McGriddle
We know this breakfast sandwich has a lot of followers, but there is absolutely nothing healthy about a combination of sausage, egg and cheese in between two "griddle cakes" (basically, pancakes) with maple syrup baked inside. Combining the sweetness of pancakes with the other savory breakfast foods is fine--just not all together in one big bite-able mess.
4. Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza
Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza
They say that all pizza is good pizza, but is that really true in this case? They hit a classic success with their own cheese stuffed crust pizza but this one's taking it a step too far. Who has ever heard of hot dogs on a pizza, much less actually inside of it? Seriously, Pizza Hut, we think this is one BAD idea.
5. Dunkin Donuts' Kolache
Dunkin Donuts' Kolache
You can only get these weird beauties in Texas, but they were definitely enough to make us scratch our heads. Similar to the hot dog stuffed pizza and not quite as awesome as a corn dog, these soft, sweet yeasty rolls are stuffed with a cheese sausage link. Okay, so maybe it doesn't sound THAT bad, but it's still pretty gross in our book.
6. Burger King's Meat'normous Omelet Sandwich
Burger King's Meat'normous Omelet Sandwich
There is, definitely, too much of a good thing. Now, there's nothing wrong with a breakfast sandwich per se--but there's something seriously gross happening when it's as huge as this one from BK. Featuring two eggs, two slices of American cheese, a sausage patty, two slices of ham and three slices of bacon on a toasted sesame seed bun, we say: too enormous!
7. Domino's Bread Bowls
Domino's Bread Bowls
If you've ever wanted to have an instant carb overload, then this might be the dish for you. It is literally a bowl made out of bread, filled with some sort of pasta dish and typically including lots and lots of cheese. Now, bread is good. Pasta is good. Cheese is good. This combo of the three, though? Definitely NOT so good.
