Traveling – it will open up your eyes, mind and soul to the new adventures…. and apparently your taste buds too!
Recently, while on the way back from South Korea to Montana, a fellow traveler introduced me to the world of ‘Secret Menus.’ He was wondering if Korean Jamba Juice would serve “White Gummy Bear Smoothie” and after a few: What?! Yeah, right! (from my direction), he was able to successfully get his rarely-ordered (I’m sure of it) drink.
I tasted this curiosity-infused beverage… It tasted ridiculously sweet, like a five year old, who mixed her favorite snack with Vanilla Ice Cream and then promptly sold it for $6/cup. Not my cup of tea, but it got me thinking. If Jamba Juice is special enough to maintain a Secret Menu, is it a thing among other restaurants as well?! Have I been missing out on some strangely concocted foods and drinks, which are probably overpriced but a total novelty item you just HAVE TO TRY?!
Apparently, Secret Menus are either a concoction of the restaurant itself or a customer’s own invention, which is passed on from person to person. So, you’re saying that if a certain item is gaining popularity, food establishments would rather keep it on the hush-hush, instead of making it a regular part of the menu? Seems counter-intuitive, doesn’t it.
Well, forget about waiting for the word of mouth to spread about your favorite chain’s Secret Menu, just pick one from HacktheMenu‘s extensive list and give it a taste! There are Secret Menus at: Burger King, McDonalds, KFC, 5 Guys, Starbucks, In-and-Out Burger, Chick-fil-A, Arby’s, Subway, Taco Bell, Dairy Queen, Chipotle, Wendy’s and the list goes on…
Oh my! How about a: McGangbang (McDonalds), Liquid Cocaine (Starbucks), Animal Style burger or fries (In-and-Out Burger), Suicide Burger (Burger King) or a Thank You Jesus Smoothie (Jamba Juice)?
