Greatest Hits in American Fast Food History
If one 100-percent-pure American beef patty topped with a slice of American cheese is enticing, then two can only be that much better, or so thought the masterminds who introduced In-N-Out's famed Double-Double in 1965. The Double-Double stacks two beef patties, two slices of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, white onion, and In-N-Out's secret family sauce (the same recipe since 1948) atop a freshly baked bun. Feeling like a double-dare? Order a "4x4" off the Not-So-Secret Menu for four patties and four slices of cheese.
Wendy's Chocolate Frosty
The Frosty has become as synonymous with the Wendy's restaurant chain as the redheaded, pigtailed icon herself. While consumers may come for the old-fashioned hamburgers and natural-cut fries, they end up staying for the Frosty, a thick-and-creamy frozen, blended dessert made with whole milk. Founded in 1969 by the late Dave Thomas, the Wendy's chain has grown to more than 6,500 locations in 28 countries around the globe and has expanded its line of Frosty-inspired treats to include a variety of flavored shakes, fresh fruit parfaits, and floats.
KFC Original Recipe Fried Chicken
In 1976, white-bearded, bespectacled Colonel Harland Sanders ranked as the second most-recognizable celebrity behind then heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. While the company has changed its name from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC, the Colonel's secret recipe (involving 11 herbs and spices) has remained the same, ensuring fast-food aficionados keep coming back for those giant red buckets of fried chicken served at more than 17,000 locations worldwide.
