BBQ Shapes are the best flavour of Shapes, no question. (Don't @ me.) So it only makes sense to add that delicious fake BBQ flavour to other delicious foodstuffs, right? For the next three weeks, Deliveroo is offering three unique BBQ Shapes inspired dishes in conjunction with Arnott's, and we've tried one of the offerings. Here's what we think.

Coffee and energy drinks are a staple part of my diet. Despite this, I tend to roll my eyes at special edition flavours of energy drinks. The Coconut Edition Red Bull didn't seem like something I would enjoy so I bought some to find out for sure.

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.

Mad Mex is going full vegan, with dairy- and lactose-free cheese now available at all Australian restaurants. (Best of all, it's currently free to add to any menu product.)

Mad Mex swears on the eyes of orphan children that its new product looks like real cheese, tastes like real cheese and melts like real cheese. We conducted a blind taste test to uncover the truth.

As part of a promotion run by The Economist, a pop-up ice-cream stall opened in Martin Place for the day, right near our offices in Sydney. Awesome! I love ice cream! I'll go check it out, I said. The catch? The ice-cream was filled with insects. I was already in too deep to back out.

Now you, dear reader, get to experience what it is like to fill your mouth with dairy and dirt-dwellers. Hakuna Matata.

Lifehacker has indulged in some highly unorthodox taste tests over the years. From bacon milkshakes to placenta pizza, we've stuck a lot of weird and horrifying things into our mouths. To round off Friday, here are ten of the grossest gastronomical nightmares to squelch into our office. (You might want to read this one on an empty stomach.)

We were invited to KFC's flagship store in Mascot NSW to see how the company makes its chicken first-hand. We were shown every step of the process; from how meat is stored and prepared to the various ways KFC keeps its "secret" herbs and spices out of the hands of suppliers. Read on for a full kitchen tour.

To celebrate the 2017 Lunar New Year, KitKat is bringing two of its famously exotic flavours to chocolate connoisseurs Down Under: the Citrus Creme Brulee KitKat and Red Bean and Toasted Coconut KitKat. For the princely sum of $68, you can purchase a selection of both flavours in a Special Edition gift set. That's $68. For some KitKats. Let's see what they taste like.

Pumpkin pie. It sounds weird to anyone born in Australia, where pumpkin is reserved for soup, roast dinners and occasionally for mixing in with mashed potato to make it a little bit healthier. We certainly don't see it as a sweet food, much less a dessert, though as it turns out pumpkin pie is actually a delicious dessert that every Australian should try at some point in their life.

The NcNutella Burger (AKA Nutella Sweety) is a dessert-based burger exclusive to McDonald's Italy. As its name implies, it's essentially a burger bun filled with creamy hazelnut cocoa spread in place of a meat patty.

Sadly, the Nutella Sweety currently isn't available at McDonald's Australia - so we decided to make our own. The results were surprisingly good!
