Burger King’s Black Burger?

It sounds like the kind of crazy creation you’d expect to emerge from the kitchens of Heston Blumenthal or Marco Pierre White, but this black bamboo and squid ink burger is actually the work of fast-food giant Burger King. The chain’s Japanese franchises will offer the pitch black patty from September 28 to mark its fifth anniversary in the land of the rising sun. The buns are made from dough mixed with bamboo charcoal, and between them is paprika and tomato beef… slathered with black squid ink ketchup.” w/ photos

America’s Most Diet-Busting French Fries

Whether loaded with chili and cheese, or served simply with lashings of salt, the humble french fry is undoubtedly America’s favorite deep-fried treat. But knowing where to order the popular snack can make all the difference to your waistline, as a new book reveals that servings can vary wildly in terms of fat and calorie content. Researchers for Eat This, Not That! 2013: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution found that one portion can differ by as many as 1,200 calories. McDonald’s french fries were surprisingly among the healthiest on offer at 230 calories and 11g of fat per small serving, however a plate of Chili’s Texas Cheese Fries with Chili and Ranch is a serious diet-buster at 2,150 calories, with a staggering 144g of fat and 6,080mg sodium.” w/ photos
