The fast food world is always changing. It has to, it has no choice really. The food business is so competitive that standing still pretty much means failure, and this is particularly true for fast food. Coming up with new products is where it is at for these industry giants. Sometimes, okay...most of the time, these products fail, but that doesn't stop them from continuing to try.
There are so many fast food places competing for the almighty buck. There are the industry giants of course, like Wendy's and McDonald's, but there are tons of up and comers like Sonic and Carl's Jr. to fight off. And then to top it all off, more and more Americans are trying to eat healthier, and are trying to eat more local and organic food. All of this means less dollars are going towards fast food, and makes the competition for these dollars even tighter.
Because of this, teams of marketing and production people gather constantly to try and think of new products. Most of them fail, like Kentucky Fried Chicken's horrific Double Down Dog, which was basically a hot dog wrapped in Chicken (ummm, gross) or things like McPizza, but they just keep trotting them out. What follows are 15 products that are either new in 2016 and are out now, or are items that are being tested in small markets. Let's hope you are hungry because here are 15 new fast food items you might be able to get this year. Eat up - just don't try them all at once.
15 Burger King's Mac N' Cheetos
14 Taco Bell Flamin' Hot Fritos Taco
13 The McChoco Potato
12 Carl's Jr. Flamin' Hot Cheetos Burger
11 Dunkin' Donuts Bacon Sausages
10 Burger King Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger
9 Taco Bell Croissant Tacos
8 McDonald's Sweet Potato Fries
6 McDonald's Mozzarella Sticks
5 Taco Bell 2wister Tacos
4 McDonald's "Chef Crafted" Customization Options
3 Real Rotisserie Chicken And Carved Turkey Sandwiches At Subway
2 Wendy's Bacon Mozzarella Cheeseburger
1 McDonald's Mini Meals
If these look kind of familiar, well they are. The Happy meal is a meal for kids that you get with the little toy inside. Well, it turns out that a lot of adults order it for themselves as well so McDonald's decided to market the same thing towards adults. Mini Meals all have a sandwich, small fries and a small drink for under $4. This makes sense on a lot of levels. It isn't that fast food is so bad for you, (although it kind of is) it is more the enormous portions. If you just have a small amount of something that is not that good for you, then you still get that fast food hit without all of the calories and grease. It being economical is also a factor- mini meals get you back to the days that you could get some fast food and not have it cost you ten bucks, and that in itself is a good thing.
