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.

2. Darth Vader burger (Quick, France)

Couresty of Quick
The "Dark Vador" burger was available in Quick restaurants across France earlier in the year.

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.
