Like most red-blooded Americans, the apex meal in my dietary regimen is a hamburger. As much as I love ground beef, though, if I could find an acceptable substitute I would switch to it for health and environmental reasons. Hell, maybe it'll keep my cardiologist off my back for a while.

Enter the Impossible burger. Made entirely of plant proteins, it's purported to convincingly emulate ground beef in taste, texture, aroma, and mouthfeel. I haven't yet had the opportunity to try it, but when that opportunity arises, I'm keen to give it a shot.

Admittedly this is one person's opinion, one which I could argue with on more then one occasion. But if you don't get hungry from this read, you're not alive.

Fast food chains across the nation have been been satisfying cravings for decades, but few people realize that many of those restaurants offer a second, secret menu with items that are regularly requested but rarely publicized.

Some of the selections combine two existing menu items, like McDonald's Big McChicken, while others are completely unique, like Burger King's Suicide Burger and Whataburger's Green Hulk Drink.

We've compiled a list of some of the most impressive (and horrendous) secret combinations that are out there today. They aren't always available at every location, but they're worth asking for next time you're ready to chow down.

There's a gif circulating again (the source video is years old) of a squid dish being served that shows the squid flailing its legs around upon being doused with soy sauce. Is it alive? Is it dead? Somewhere in between? Here comes the science!

Way back in 1983, Alan Drazen really did invent the Choco Taco. Not in Mexico. Not even in Texas or California. But it was along the border, where a mighty river separates two interdependent yet often hostile lands: Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Jackie Panuisiak hosts the annual Northern Alberta Lobster Festival in the community of Cotillion. She had ordered some 145 pounds of live lobster to be shipped from this province to Alberta. The problem is that the lobsters didn't arrive. The Lobster Festival was forced to eat hot dogs instead of lobster.

Minor league baseball teams have, in my baseball-hating opinion, exactly one thing going for them - they really inspire their stadium's concession crew to provide something unique for their hungry fans. Ergo,'s annual Food Fight, where you can pit proprietary ballpark fare against one another. Here's this year's leaderboard.

Despite its alcoholic-sounding name, Japanese company Bourbon actually specializes in chocolate. Still, its latest product seems like the kind of so-crazy-it's-brilliant idea born out of a flash of heavily inebriated inspiration. Behold: sliced chocolate!

As of 2013, at fifteen hundred locations across every state, thirty-three countries, and two territories worldwide, Chili's sells 60.4 million pounds of fajita meat per year, "four times the weight of an average U.S. military submarine," according to Brinker International, Chili's parent company. In this chapter, I'll make the case that no ingredient was more important than sound in making Chili's synonymous with sizzling fajitas.
