The KFC Zinger Double Down King is an "all meat" burger comprising cheese, bacon and a beef patty sandwiched between two KFC breast fillets. In other words, it takes the OTT concept of the KFC Double and elevates it to ludicrous proportions.

Tragically, the Double Down King isn't available in Australia, but don't let that stop you from sampling its colon-clogging delights - as the following taste test demonstrates, it's possible to build your own. The results are spectacular... and probably a bit lethal.

Bugger me, it's cold. Dragging myself out of bed this morning was an effort worthy of the 12 labours of Hercules. If you're feeling similarly glum and frozen, a trip to Macca's may be in order: it's selling a limited-edition range of spicy sides just for winter.

The McDonald's McGold Card is a food-redemption ticket that provides the owner with free, unlimited McDonald's for life. The existence of the card gained international attention after actor Rob Lowe flashed his on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2015. Since then, it has been revealed that a range of VIPs and celebrities have their own version of the card - from Bill Gates to Warren Buffett. So how do 'normal' people go about getting one?

This infographic from Fairmont Hotels breaks down everything you need to know about seven popular burrito styles - from their storied history to the ingredients you need to make your own.

The KFC you know and love could soon be on the chopping block. The company is implementing sweeping changes to its UK menu with an emphasis on healthier, lighter eating. This includes a 20 per cent reduction in calories per serving and the introduction of vegetarian "chicken". No, really.

This video shows you how to make bona fide KFC chicken at home. (The good news is, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard already.)
