Taco Bell's fried chicken taco and other over-the-top fast food

Cheapism Logo By Saundra Latham of Cheapism | Slide 1 of 24: Fast food used to be a simple burger-and-fries affair, but for many big-name chains, food stunts can create buzz and swipe curious customers from the competition. The most recent case in point? Taco Bell's Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco, a new menu item that aims to capitalize on the chicken sandwich wars happening among other fast-food chains. (For those interested, the fried-chicken stuffed flatbread offering will be available in Nashville, Tennessee, and Charlotte, North Carolina staring March 11). Beyond that, there was no shortage of drive-thru weirdness over the past decade, from Burger King's Halloween Whopper to lesser-known experiments like Jack in the Box's Burger Dippers. Curious? We've rounded up several of the zaniest items to grace U.S. menus in the past 10 years.
