The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let F&W do it for you. Here, four of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
King Cake Burger: As if Mardi Gras wasn’t debaucherous enough, Food Drunk, a New Orleans food truck that serves dishes designed specifically for the inebriated, is offering a king cake burger. It is comprised of a Black Angus brisket patty and a slice of cheddar cheese on a sweet brioche bun frosted with icing and sprinkled with yellow, green and purple sugar crystals.
Chipotle Burrito Feat: Chipotle burritos are huge. Finishing just one in a lunch hour is impressive. So think about finishing four of them—plus a giant Diet Coke—in three minutes. Competitive eater Matt Stonie did just that with incredible (and somewhat alarming) ease. Amazingly, finishing the Diet Coke appeared to be the most difficult part. Brain freeze hurts.
