The Fast Foodie: 7 Best New Fast Food Items Of 2014

2014 was an epic year in fast food. The chefs, marketers and culinary (evil) genius scientists at fast food companies really out did themselves in 2014 with a myriad of new items, combos, flavors, sauces, and more.

Until fast food joints start serving McRiceCakes or a Carl’s Jr. $6 Quinoa and Kale Salad, we will be forced to celebrate their most delicious and glutonous creations. With that in mind here are the top seven Fast Foodie reviews of 2014.


6 & 7) KFC Double Down and the KFC Korea Zinger Double Down

These are both close to the same thing – fried chicken in the place of the bun. I was only able to try the KFC Double Down as the budgeting for the Fast Foodie does not include international travel. The KFC Double Down was pretty darn tasty but — buyer beware — it is a greasy gut bomb that tops out at 36g of fat and 1620mg of sodium. Believe me, it feels like twice as much. Read full review …


5) Arby’s $10 Meat Mountain Sandwich

The aptly named off menu item at Arby’s is 2 breaded and deep-fried chicken tenders, 1.5 ounces of roast turkey, 1.5 ounces of ham, 1 slice of big-eye Swiss cheese, 1.5 ounces of corned beef, 1.5 ounces of brisket, 1.5 ounces of Angus steak, 1 slice of natural cheddar cheese, 1.5 ounces of roast beef, 3 half-slices of peppered bacon, all on a bun. Yes, you read that right. All of that in a sandwich so large that you need to unhinge your jaw like an anaconda to eat it. I tried to conquer this K-2, this Mount Everest of meats. I did lose to the Meat Mountain but it is the journey that really matters. Right? Read full review …


4) Papa John’s Fritos Chili Pizza

It sounds like something thought up by an 8-year-old or a very stoned college student. Pizza with chili sauce, onions, cheese, tomatoes, all topped with crunchy Fritos. It was a bit hard to eat and a bit embarrassing to order but quite tasty. Just eat it when it is hot before the Fritos get soggy. Read full review …


3) 7-Eleven’s Doritos Loaded

In the spirit of all things unholy and as far away from organic, gluten-free, and farm to table comes the Doritos Loaded. Imagine a mozzarella stick but it is process nacho cheese (cheez?) and the breading is Doritos. Sound good? You will love it. Sound God-awful? You probably would never eat anything found under the 7-11 heat lamps. Read full review …


2) Burger King’s Chicken Fries

Chicken tenders shaped like french fries with assorted dipping sauces. What is not to like here? Why did these ever go away in the first place? What other shapes can we make chicken tenders? Read full review …


1) Taco Bell Quesarito

The only item that I continue to crave and pine over. Luckily, it can be had for mere pocket change at any Taco Bell. ‘The Bell’ continues to be the gold standard for my fast food and the Quesarito is delicious. Try it. For real. Leave now. Read full review …
