The barnyard burger is a secret menu favorite at Wendy’s. You won’t be spending more than $6 for this glorious meal. Simply order an asiago ranch chicken club and a bacon cheeseburger and combine the two. Your stomach will thank you, and so will your wallet for this cheap and easy lunch!

2. Sonic Pickle-O’s
If you’re anything like Snooki from the Jersey Shore, you love a good pickle. Fried pickles are an uncommon delicacy that the world definitely needs. Luckily, Sonic’s secret menu has the wonderful Pickle-O’s, which are pickles smothered in batter, then deep fried until they’re crisp and golden. Don’t knock them until you try them because you will love them.

3. Frito Pie
The frito pie might not look too appealing, but wait until you taste it! Dump a bag of fritos in a bowl, and drown the chips in chili and nacho cheese. Basically a messy nacho bowl, but ten times better! If you’re dying to try it for yourself, make your way over to Sonic!

4. Arby’s Meat Mountain
The meat mountain sandwich can make you feel full just by looking at it. With chicken tenders, roast turkey, ham, angus steak, corned beef, brisket, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, roast beef, and bacon, it’s difficult to believe this secret menu item actually exists! Eaters take caution, you could have a stomach ache for the next week!


5. Burger King Suicide Burger
If four patties, four slices of American cheese, bacon, and secret sauce stacked on top one another and topped with a bun sounds appealing to you, you will love the Burger King suicide burger. Though the name has a worrisome title, it’s a testament to the burger’s intensity. If you’re watching your calories, steer clear of this secret menu item.

6. In N Out Flying Dutchman
Where this burger got its name is a mystery, but we guarantee you it has nothing to do with Spongebob Squarepants! The In-N-Out flying dutchman is a burger that uses beef patties as the bun and two slices of cheese as the toppings. A very atypical meal, but one you won’t want to miss. Take plenty of napkins, because this burger is pretty messy!

7. Mega Mango Jamba Juice
Got mango fever? Just looking for a fruity refreshment to keep you cool during the summer? Jamba Juice’s secret menu is full of fruit-blended treats, but your go-to smoothie should be the mega mango! With mangoes, strawberries, pineapple juice and orange juice all blended together, you’ll fall in love with this tropical smoothie.

8. McDonalds Land Sea Air Burger
For this secret menu item from McDonald’s, you’ll need to have $10 handy as it can be costly with so many different components. You have to order three sandwiches in one, a Big Mac, filet-o-fish, and a McChicken. This massive sandwich gets its clever name from the fact that beef represents land, fish represents the sea and chicken represents the air, though it’s not quite clear what chicken has to do with air. Only the strong-willed order a side of fries with this one.

9. The Nutella Frappuccino
If you’re the type to put Nutella on everything from a sandwich to celery stalks, you just have to try it in your daily Starbucks frappuccino.

Share this one with your Nutella-loving friends!

10. Butterbeer Frappuccino

You don’t have to attend Hogwarts for this one!

11. Shake Shack Ice Cream Sandwich
If you’re looking for a traditional ice cream sandwich, go to your local ice cream shop, but if you’re looking for something new, get to a Shake Shack.

12. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie
