Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re part of a secret club? While joining the Friars is probably not your bag, there’s a far tastier way to feel special. Read on to discover your new favorite fast foods–no weird, secret handshake required!
Dairy Queen – Frozen Hot Chocolate
Reminiscent of a Frappuccino, this frosty hot chocolate drink could potentially send you on a treasure hunt, as most DQ chains only offer it as a seasonal option. Some outlets, however, will be happy to make it for you year-round if you ask. Serendipity at its finest.
Burger King – Frings
Half fries, half onion-rings. You really can have it your way!
Chick-Fil-A – Blueberry Cheesecake Milkshake
Apparently, all you have to do is ask your very patient server, who hopefully had their coffee this morning, to blend a slice of blueberry cheesecake into your vanilla milkshake and voila! Your daily fruit quota has never tasted so good.
Sonic – Pickle-O’s
These “discontinued” deep-fried pickle slices are no longer listed, but their memory lives on in the form of a secret menu item. They’re most popular in the southern states, but since pickles and fry batter are always on hand at Sonic, it’s really no problem to accommodate the request anywhere. Go ‘head and ask.
Shake Shack – Beer Float
This adult version of the root beer float resides in Las Vegas, for when your sweet tooth has the nerve to interrupt your buzz. It’s a scoop of vanilla custard in the beer of your choice. Delicious? Maybe. Necessary? Absolutely.
Taco Bell – The Incredible Hulk
Not to be confused with The Hulk, a bean and cheese burrito loaded with guacamole, this overloaded sibling is a five-layer burrito made with guac instead of the standard nacho cheese sauce. All the green monster with none of the radiation.
Red Robin – Cure Burger
Initially introduced as a New Year’s Day hangover cure in 2015, this burger — a beef patty topped with bacon, cheese, chili, mushrooms and a sunny-side up egg on a sesame bun — became the chain’s first secret menu item. Death: The ultimate hangover cure.
