When you think of burger toppings, you think of the usual suspects, don't ya? Lettuce, tomato, cheese, that sort of stuff. Well, Wendy's thinks a bit differently. The popular fast food chain is mixing things up at their new restaurant in Tokyo by adding some flare with a new ingredient: Foie gras. Yup, the foie gras hamburger comes stacked with a hefty $16 price tag and is available RIGHT NOW!
Why does Tokyo have to be so far away?! Sure, fatty liver isn't my go-to burger topping, but I've got to admit the idea peeks my interest. Besides, when it comes to the crazy stuff fast food joints sell from Hawaii to Japan -- foie gras is pretty tame. Take a look at these 5 unconventional fast food items from across the globe:

McDonald's Spam McGriddle
Inside: Spam, pineapple, and rice. Rice? Next to Spam? On a bun? Thanks, but no thanks.
Pizza Hut's Double Roll Pizza
Inside: On one half of the pizza, there's mini sausage and bacon stuffed crust, paprika, corn, and hamburger. On the other? Sausage, bacon bits, ham, green peppers, garlic chips, tomato, and cheddar and mozzarella stuffed crust. This monstrous pizza is just WAY too much for me.
