America takes a lot of flack for over-the-top fast food items like KFC’s Double Down Sandwich, but here’s proof that we aren’t the sole offenders. There are plenty of are plenty of strange, extreme fast food options in other countries (granted, most of them are still in American franchises) that give the Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos a run for their money. Note: Not all items are currently available; some were short-term promotional products, and others were probably run out of town by angry mobs.


30) Mega Mac/Double Big Mac (McDonald’s)


What is it? Remember that Big Mac jingle about “two all-beef patties”? So 20th Century. The Mega Mac (AKA the Double Big Mac) ups that to FOUR beef patties — and adds an extra slice of cheese to boot. You’re welcome.

Where is it? Japan


25) Cheesy Bites Remix Pizza (Pizza Hut)


What is it? The US has the Cheesy Bites Pizza (with a detachable cheese-filled breadstick crust), but Pizza Hut saved this special “remix” for the Middle East, alternating three seemingly non-complementary flavors of cheesy bites: Spicy Mexican Sprinkle, Cream Cheese and Sesame and Mozzarella and Parmesan.

Where is it? Japan


14) Kiwiburger (McDonald’s)


What is it? I’ve always wondered why beets exist, and now I know: to feed New Zealanders! This burger starts out fine — lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions — but then the Kiwis add the dreaded beets and, inexplicably, a poached egg.

4) McRibster (McDonald’s)


What is it? We in America deep-fry everything, so I’m not sure how we overlooked the opportunity to deep-fry a McRib sandwich, but the Austrians picked up our slack by not only breading and deep-frying this mystery meat product, but also topping it with bacon and cheese. It’s a hate crime on a bun!

2) Lasagna Sandwich (Tesco)


What is it? OK, so this isn’t from a traditional “fast food” restaurant — it’s from a British supermarket chain called Tesco — but it’s fast, weird and disgusting. As if buying a pre-cooked, pre-packaged slice of lasagna off the store shelf wasn’t sketchy enough, Tesco has shoved it between two slices of white bread. I don’t want to know what they do to it to make sure the bread doesn’t get soggy.

Where is it? UK
