Random Food Report: Replace The Bun And Stack It High

1. Oh, Canada.

"It started as a joke, but a Wendy's in Canada eventually began selling the nine-patty monstrosity known as the 'T-rex' burger for real," Gawker reports.

And then this happened:


C'mon, Wendy's. The T-Rex! Make it part of a family pack! Let's reward innovation, not stifle it.


2. McDonald's Also Has T-Rex News.

"McDonald's Singapore is selling a 'Durian Crunch McFlurry' that combines soft-serve ice-cream with everyone's favorite stinkily delicious T-Rex-testicle-looking fruit," Boing Boing reports.

Singapore bloggers Donald and Cathy explain:

Regarded by many people in Southeast Asia as the "king of fruits," the durian is known for it's strong pungent odor.

The fruit has a very distinct odor that is strong and penetrating even when the shell is intact. We have not tasted it yet, but we have come to recognize the smell. You can identify it a mile away. It truly is hard to describe . . . a sweet, gross, stinky smell like a very overripe piece of fruit or leaking gas.


Should've gone with a nine-patty Big Mac.


3. Joe Rex.

"Take a long, deep breath and look out on the bountiful expanse, for we are at the top of this roller-coaster ride we call America," Gawker reports.

"Our apex comes in the form of the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe, and though our swift decline will accompany a deep rumble in our bowels, we should have no regrets. This is what we were always meant for."

And how:


Now just stack it nine-high.


4. Jack Rex.

"Jack In the Box recently unveiled the 'Big Waffle Stack,' in which two 'lightly sweetened, toasted maple waffles' take the place of the bun," Huffington Post the reports.


So the trend is Bun Replacement. Adjust your portfolio accordingly.


Comments welcome.
