Ready to indulge in some awesome and downright decadent fast food? If so, you’ll gain inspiration from this list of 10 fast foods you need to try at least once in your life. These choices aren’t low-calorie fare. They are designed to satisfy even the most intense fast food cravings.
10. Deep-Fried Big Mac
To sample this incredible delicacy, you will need to grab a Big Mac from McDonald’s and then head for your home kitchen. The deep-frying part will be up to you, because deep-fried Big Macs aren’t on the menu at Mickey D’s. Once you have your burger with special sauce, it will be time to gather a few tasty ingredients and get to work. Dazzle friends and family as you turn a commonplace Big Mac into a deep-fried burger that is definitely worthy of an Instagram post. You may want to consume a few TUMS after you eat this burger, or eat a few pieces of fresh ginger. Any assistance you can give to your digestive system will be helpful. To prepare this beauty of a burger, you’ll need oil, Panko breadcrumbs, toothpicks, a plastic knife and eggs. Coat the Big Mac in eggs before adding your breadcrumbs. Then, deep-fry it in oil until it has the perfect, golden-brown finish. Once you fish it out of the oil, and please be careful while you do so, let it cool a bit and then stab it once with a plastic knife. Pretend you’re a Game of Thrones character while you do it. The knife doubles as a convenient stick that should hold this burger up. Some people garnish their deep-fried Big Macs with extra Big Mac sauce. They usually make homemade Big Mac sauce from “dupe” recipes that they find online. Hellman’s makes a Chunky Burger Sauce which is another, easier option. This extreme fast food burger isn’t for the meek. It’s going to provide calories and fat galore. It’s going to be very filling. There may come a time when you decide that this burger must be a part of your life.
9. Triple Treat Box From Pizza Hut
Pizza Hut Canada is currently offering a Triple Treat Box which is really a show-stopper. It’s retailing for $33.99, as of late May of 2019, and it comes in a big pizza box with three separate drawers for the goodies. The top drawer contains one medium pizza with two toppings or one recipe pizza. The middle drawer has another medium pizza with two toppings or another recipe pizza. The bottom drawer is loaded with a side dish and a tasty dessert. The side is regular breadsticks and two dips are included. The dessert is a big cookie known as the Ultimate Hershey’s Chipits Cookie. This Triple Treat Box may not be around forever, so be sure to get one soon if you want a unique fast food experience. The packaging of the limited-time-only Triple Treat Box is just one reason why pizza fans are excited about this special Pizza Hut promotion. The packaging definitely offers a lot of novelty. Getting a side and dessert as part of a two pizza package deal is also appealing. While nothing about this box deal is particularly astonishing, it’s just fun. It’s a different way of enjoying pizza, breadsticks and dessert. Maybe the Triple Treat Box will be so popular that it becomes a regular menu item. Ordering your own Triple Treat Box may help to make that happen. This special offer will be fun for office meals or family get-togethers. Or maybe you’re hungry enough to put a big dent in this extravagant box all by yourself, or with a little help from a friend.
8. KFC Double Down Sandwich
Oh, the legendary Double Down! It’s a fast food menu item that has gotten so much press. It’s a fast food sandwich with two fried chicken fillets in the place of typical sandwich buns. The sandwich also features a couple of strips of bacon, mayo and cheese. The bacon, mayo and cheese are the filling for the sandwich. It’s a standout menu item that positively screams fast food decadence. Unfortunately, the Double Down isn’t on the KFC USA website right now, and we checked the Chicken, Sandwich and Promotions categories to make sure. KFC didn’t pull this crazy sandwich off the menu due to lack of sales. It got huge sales while it was being offered. It caused a sensation, so maybe KFC will bring it back at some point. Sometimes, fast food chains create buzz and excitement by bringing back menu items that drove the public wild. Holding back these menu items sometimes triggers insane demand. It’s a marketing gambit that works. The Double Down doesn’t seem to be on the menu in Canada, either. Canadian KFC fans were able to get a variation on the classic Double Down in 2018, which was enticingly named the Waffle Double Down. The Waffle Double Down is no longer on the online menu at KFC Canada, but it sounded exceptional. It featured a couple of fried chicken fillets, with a Belgian-style waffle in between. The Waffle Double Down was finished with a drizzle of aioli that had Canadian maple flavoring. It’s hard to believe that the KFC Double Down sandwich will never be on the menu again. It’s got to come back, right? When it does, get it while you can.

Fast food experts at Taco Bell recommend sipping water while you work your way through this burrito, or taking sips of a cool and refreshing Baja Blast to help it all go down easier.

Fast food doesn’t need to be incredibly innovative to be amazing. At Five Guys, the delightful Large Cajun Fries feature awesome seasoning that makes them addictive, but most of us have enjoyed Cajun seasoning in the past.

It should be consumed in moderation. When it is consumed in moderation, it’s a guilty pleasure that is really just a lot of fun. Filling, tasty, bacon-y, beefy, cheesy fun!

If you want something diet-friendly, go for Greek yogurt and fruit, or something like that. Maybe some steel-cut oatmeal?

Maybe Canadians can cross the border into the USA to get these breakfast treats.
2. OREO Cookie Pizza From Domino’s
This limited-edition menu item was very popular. It is not available these days, but it may return for an encore. We’re mentioning it here because it gave people with sweet tooths a dessert pizza experience that was wonderful. Crafted with a graham cracker-style crust and topped with vanilla icing and crumbled OREO cookies, it was perhaps too sweet for some people, but perfect for those who love sugary treats. Sweet icing was drizzled on this dessert pizza once it came out of the oven. When launched, this dessert pizza was available for just under four bucks, with purchase. Domino’s partnered with OREO to make it all happen. Domino’s desserts vary by locality and country. In Canada, Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes are available, which are actually pretty darned good. They’re very affordable, too. They arrive warm and they aren’t much different from the lava cakes sold in fine restaurants. They have luscious, soft centers. Until the legendary OREO dessert pizza returns, Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes may be a great substitute. Domino’s in some countries, like Australia, offer a wide array of desserts to choose from. In Canada and the USA, the selection of desserts is minimal. Check your country’s Domino’s website to see what’s available for dessert. Keep an eye out for any limited-time offers. With any luck, the OREO cookie dessert pizza will return.
