Mark your calendars, because according KFC, April 14, 2013 will be “the greatest day in chicken history”. That's right, this Sunday KFC will turn the chicken world on its head as it releases its new Original Recipe Boneless Chicken.
Boneless chicken? Is that even possible? KFC claims it is. Their scientists worked around the clock to find a way to remove the bones of the chicken, using a process that I can only assume involves bone-melting lasers. Or magic. Or maybe they just cut the chicken meat off the bone... you know the same process used to make this boneless chicken. Or this. Or this. Or this. Maybe this boneless chicken isn't as revolutionary as KFC would like you to think.
Besides not having bones, what do you need to know about this new wonder of the chicken world? Well it comes in either white or dark meat varieties and it's seasoned with the Colonel's Original Recipe of herbs and spices, breaded and fried.
Is the new KFC boneless chicken healthy? How does the nutritional value of the boneless chicken compare to the original bone-in chicken?

After last week's Turkey Burger announcement, did you think Burger King was turning over a new leaf and becoming more health-conscious? If you did, you'd be wrong. Just take a look at the burger pictured above. It's a large ground beef patty, topped with fried onion rings, lettuce, tomato and mayo. You might be thinking “I could probably eat that without dying.” Well don't get so cocky, because there's more to this burger than meat's the eye (pun intended).
That ground beef patty may look ordinary, but it's stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese. That's right, there's bacon and cheese INSIDE this burger. Behold, the new Burger King Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger.
Now let's say you have an extremely strong heart and you're able to eat one of these Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burgers without having more than a heart attack or two. You might be thinking, is there any stuffed side dish I can order to go with my stuffed burger? You bet. Burger King has also just announced their new Loaded Tater Tots, also stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese.

Burger King has just announced a few changes to their menu that they hope will appeal to health conscious diners.
The first menu change is that the MorningStar Veggie Burger is now topped with red onions. This change has minimal impact on the nutritional value of the Veggie Burger, but may have a significant impact on your post-meal breath.
More interesting is the brand spankin new Turkey Burger that BK is launching. Char-grilled and topped with lettuce tomato, red onions and mayo, the Turkey Burger is meant to be healthy alternative to a burger. But is the Turkey Burger really healthy? How does it compare to a burger or a chicken sandwich?

We thought that the Wendy's Baconator was overkill with it's 6 strips of bacon, but it looks downright reasonable compared to the burger ordered by a Japanese Burger King patron. This gentleman ordered a hamburger with a mind-blowing 1,050 pieces of bacon. That's right, 1,050 pieces of salty, fatty, artery clogging deliciousness.
What's the damage done from 1,050 pieces of bacon? For starters, 14 pigs will have to donate their bellies to make that much bacon. As for the nutritional impact, 1,050 pieces of bacon has roughly 43,000 calories, 3,000 grams of fat and 197,000 milligrams of sodium. And don't forget that somewhere under all that bacon is a Burger King Hamburger, adding a few hundred more calories.
So how does this story end? Did the Japanese Burger King patron slay the thousand bacon strip beast before coronary heart disease could set in? Did he give up? Find out by watching the video.
