10 strange fast food items abroad

In the US, fast food can get pretty predictable: Burgers, fries, chicken, and a taco or a fish sandwich, if you’re feeling adventurous. Leave it to our international brethren to show us how to loosen up and live a little. Take a look at ten wacky fast food items from around the world.

Ok, so it was a promotional gimmick, and it didn’t last long. But for about a month, the French fast food chain Quick offered a “Darth Vader burger,” complete with a black bun. The burger was part of a promotion for “Star Wars: Phantom Menace 3D.” As the Monitor’s Laurent Belsie wrote back in January:

 “It's structured like a Big Mac. It could almost pass for a Big Mac, except that the bun is ... well ... black. Not blackened, totally black. Like two well-formed pieces of charcoal.”

The promotion also included a Darth Maul burger with a bright red bun, as well as a Jedi burger, with a regular bun.

Would we eat it?: With our eyes closed, probably.
