YouTuber Moshe Tamssot Used McDonald's “Create Your Taste” Kiosk To Build The Most Astonishing Burger Monstrosity The World Has Ever Seen
Having the ability to build your own custom burger is great — but what happens when you take that idea and run with it? That's what YouTuber Moshe Tamssot tested out when he used a McDonald's “Create Your Taste” kiosk to build a burger with literally everything on it. I'm not kidding; he pushed it to the max—and the results, as you might have guessed, are equal parts stunning and horrifying.
The “Create Your Taste” kiosks debuted in a small handful of McDonald's locations towards the end of 2014; at the time, Bustle's Suzanne Samin wrote that the idea was “yummy,” but that it “[didn't] go far enough.” After watching Tamssot's video, though, I'm of the opinion that it probably does go far enough — as long as you know what to do with it. With great power comes great responsibility and all that.
According to Tamssot, you can add 10 times the standard amount for most toppings and sauces; patties, however, are limited to two Quarter Pounders, and you can only get one bun (so, no layered burgers. Sorry, double decker fans). Curious to see how it went? Here's the step-by-step; scroll down to watch the full video:
Step 1: Add Your Bacon
Technically I guess this is step two, as Tamssot has already started with two patties, but whatever. It's the first thing we see in the video, so I'm calling it step one.
Step 2: Choose Your Bun
Artisan roll. Good choice.
Step 3: Add Your Cheese
Pick ALL the cheese!
Step 4: Guac?
Step 5: Everything Else
Lettuce, pickles, red onions, tomatoes, grilled onions, tortilla strips, sliced jalapenos, grilled mushrooms… the works. All times 10, of course.
Step 6: And Now for the Sauce
Mayo, spicy mayo, sweet BBQ, creamy garlic, mustard, and ketchup also all get the times 10 treatment. This? This is the only step that kind of terrifies me. I can't possibly believe that all those sauces are going to taste good together, but, well… we'll see, I guess.
Step 7: Pay Up
This is how much a burger with literally everything costs. The cashier was so taken aback she actually went to get a manager to take a look at it. But then…
Ah! Much more reasonable.
The Finished Product:
They had to bring it out in a couple of different baskets because, as the manager put it while giggling, “That's the biggest we could make it without it falling apart.” Here's what it looked like after Tamssot assembled it:
Does anyone else have the strong urge to play Jenga all of a sudden?
