The American obsession with “secret” off-menu fast-food items is crippling the nation. Right about the time you learn that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny aren’t real, you realize that you can believe in elusive foods like McDonald’s McGangBang, Fatburger’s Hypocrite, Jamba Juice’s Sourpatch Kid, and Chipotle’s Quesarito. They’re all absolutely ridiculous, which is what makes MAD Magazine’s parody so entertaining. Are McDonald’s Chicken McFlurry (reduced-fat vanilla soft-serve with McNuggets swirled in, with caramel and barbecue sauces on top), Taco Bell’s Saucedilla (six hot-sauce packets folded into a tortilla), and KFC’s Mass Grave (chicken carcass by-products buried in mashed potatoes) real or fake? Dare you to attempt to order those off-menu items and find out. [Food Beast]
