The 21st century’s real innovators don’t work in Silicon Valley. As my colleague Alison Griswold explains, they’re in fast food. Who can doubt the genius of KFC’s Double Down, Taco Bell’s waffle taco, and the Domino’s chicken-crust pizza? And these gastronomical inventions don’t stop at the drive-through window: How’d you like a foie gras-topped cocktail, bacon-beer milkshake, or goat-brain beer to wash that down? Now’s your chance to get in on the entrepreneurial action. Plug your name and your favorite cuisines into our fast food generator and we’ll spit out a novelty food that’s built just for you. Enjoy your breaded sausage bucket!
