The Burger King Fry Burger.
The Burger King doesn't stay king by resting on his laurels. No, he stays king by constantly innovating (and by executing dissenters). New on the menu is the French Fry Burger, which is, you may have guessed, a burger topped with french fries. It costs $1, which should be considered a value and a red flag.
Peter: Since they're exactly $1 each, they can legally be used as currency.
Ian: And you can use actual dollars as napkins!
Mike: Dollar Menu is fast-food shorthand for "Day Old."

Chinese consumers have 1,075 McDonald's locations to choose from, but the variety inside the restaurant isn't exactly top of their tastes-- KFC does much better business here because Chinese diners prefer white meat over beef patties.

Recent news out of Vietnam intrigued us here at The Salt. Ho Chi Minh City is set to get its first McDonald's sometime in the next year, according to the company.
It seems Vietnam is ready for the iconic American food, and McDonald's is confident that Vietnamese consumers now have enough disposable income to get hooked on shakes, burgers and fries.
That got us thinking about the global reach of one of the world's most iconic food companies.
That Crunchy Taco will no longer come with a side of toy.
Taco Bell announced Tuesday that it is ditching kids' meals and the trinkets that come with them at its U.S. locations. The items will begin to come off menus starting this month, the company says, and should be completely gone by January 2014.
