To celebrate Hannukah, Burger King Israel has unleashed the "SufganiKing" — a Whopper that's sandwiched between two halves of a fried doughnut and topped with ketchup jam. Amazing or disgusting? We'll let you be the judge.

First it was the Crunchwrap, and now the quesadilla is being invaded by the bright orange snack. You'll have to travel to Taco Bell's Philippines division to get your hands on the real thing — which is stuffed with jalapeno-flavored Cheetos and their three-cheese blend — but we can't imagine recreating your own at home would be all that hard.

Whether or not you're already planning on fleeing the country based on the results of the election, this just might entice you. McDonald's Italy is now serving Sweety con Nutella — AKA your favorite hazelnut spread in between two pieces of bread. While it might not look incredibly appetizing, the combination of chocolate and carbs has never sounded better.

PUMPKIN SPICE FRENCH FRIES
There is such a thing as too much pumpkin spice and McDonald's new menu item is the perfect example. After the success of their chocolate-covered fries, the chain's Japan division decided to roll out their signature French fries covered in chocolate and pumpkin sauce, just in time for Halloween. Pumpkin aficionados can get their hands on the bizarre sweet/savory snack September 28 through October 31.

Meat lovers, rejoice! Bacon, chicken and beef come together in three different versions of a calorie-packed burger at Burger King New Zealand. The chain is releasing the Full Meaty, Half Meaty and Bacon Meaty as part of its "Meatatarian Range." Two beef patties, a chicken patty, six bacon strips, two slices of cheese, barbecue sauce and onions make up the Full Meaty. The Half Meaty has one less beef patty and slice of cheese. The Bacon Meaty loses the meat patty and includes two chicken patties, six strips of bacon, two cheese slices and barbecue sauce. So if you’re ever in New Zealand and want to try these burgers, just make sure you come really, really hungry.

If ever there were two words that didn’t seem like a natural fit, it was “Doritos” and “pizza.” But tell that to Pizza Hut Australia, where patrons devoured pies made with mozzarella cheese, smashed Doritos and cheddar. The company called it “not only seriously loud, but delicious."

Bread was a no-show in this protein-packed sandwich, called the Zinger Double Down King, at KFCs in South Korea. A bacon-topped beef patty was nestled between two fried spicy chicken fillet "buns," then garnished with barbecue and white pepper sauces for good measure. Vegetarians ran screaming.

It was a whopper of innovation: Burger King Japan’s Kuro (black) burger included black cheese made from bamboo charcoal and black sauce courtesy of black squid ink on a charred black bun.

How's this for an, um, appetizing combo: minced fish, soybeans, onions and carrots that are McNuggetized into bite-size pieces? Though they're shaped and deep-fried just like their chicken cousins, nothing else about McDonald's Japan's Tofu Shinio Nuggets seemed remotely familiar. Even the ginger-flavored dipping sauce covered new ground.

That age-old dilemma – should we have pizza or Mexican for dinner? – was solved by Pizza Hut New Zealand, where diners could order up a pie masquerading as a quesadilla (beef and jalapeños stuffed between two crusts) or grab a slice of the nachos pizza, a mashup of beans, chili flakes and burrito sauce.

PANEER SANDWICH WITH CREAM SAUCE
Who's chicken now? KFCs in India served up the Paneer Zinger, a crunchy, double-layered paneer (cheese) patty filled with a spicy, creamy sauce and topped with lettuce on a sesame bun.

Merry Christmas! Or is it "Berry Kristmush?" For the holiday season, Burger King Japan came out with this stunner: a bacon-topped black pepper-mixed beef patty that is covered in a sauce made with raspberries, cranberries, blueberries and red wine.

O Canada – how could you? The thinking must have been, If they love poutine – the classic Canadian dish made with fries, cheese curds and gravy – Burger King customers there will love it with a little chopped beef, mustard, ketchup and pickles.

CHICKEN POT PIE
Since it feels like such a classic American comfort food dish, it seems odd that KFC served chicken pot pie (a mix of chicken breast, mashed potatoes and gravy) only in Australia.
