Hidden menus are nothing new to restaurants. In fact they are pretty fun. They can make you feel like you’re part of some hidden club, where everyone may not know your name. But you know the secret handshake to get tasty food both hidden and unlisted. I am a card-carrying member of In ‘N Out’s hidden menu. “Animal Style” me baby! That was my mantra. Until the mystique wore off and I realized super dry over-fried french fries was a form of internal abrasion I did not need. But I still love a good old Animal Style burger.

But did you know that McDonald’s also has its own hidden food items not found on the menu? We here in the Bay Area have seen the Mc10:35. It’s the marriage of an Egg McMuffin and McDouble–the Mc10:35. Get it? Now I give you The McGangbang. Living up to its namesake, this one services more than one type of meat. (I’m gonna burn for this).  The Gangbang actually has more bread than a Big Mac. I didn’t think such a thing possible. Flesh-wise, it consists of two burger patties and a single breaded chicken fillet. It’s essentially a McChicken wrapped in a double cheeseburger with more buns than Nicki Minaj in a house of mirrors.

Some say the hidden menu is just a way for food chains to circumvent nutrition guidelines. You don’t have to make them public if the food item doesn’t exist–at least on the menu, that is. But no matter what your level of promiscuity may be–eat one of these things and you’re arteries are thoroughly f–*.
