Secret Menu Items Confirmed With Undercover Investigative Journalism

A reporter at the Arizona Daily Star decided to put our little Secret Menu Items post to the test by ordering the items at some of our nations finest fast food eating establishments.

What did he discover? Secret menu items are for real.

On the Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla: “It’s so good that I tell them they should have it on the menu, to which the kindly lady who prepared my food wistfully says, “Hopefully, it will be, someday.”

On the Subway Pizza Sub:
“There are like nine pepperoni slices on it, and maybe it’s just my imagination, but I could swear I felt my arteries hardening with every bite.”

On the Jamba Juice Pink Starburst Smoothie:
“It tastes — wait for it — like a pink Starburst candy, albeit in liquid form. And instead of being done with it after a few seconds, I have a giant cup of it.”

We sort of want to try that chicken quesadilla. He made it sound really good. —MEGHANN MARCO
