1. A woman in South Carolina named Cecily Hennigan
went to the drive-thru at McDonald's and sang the whole "McDonald's Drive-Thru Song" from YouTube. And the worker on the other end was totally with it.
2. Sour Patch Kids Candy Corn Will Be Out This Halloween
Listen, I’m gonna review some Halloween candy in August and ya’ll are just gonna sit there and take it. I got these Sour Patch Kids Candy Corn at Dollar General and am pleasantly surprised at how much I like them. Going with only orange & grape was a bold, bold move, but I’m especially in love with the grape. It has a powdery sweetness and tastes like a sour, kickass version of Big League Chew. The orange is less special but good nonetheless. The best part about this candy corn is that is doesn’t taste remotely close to candy corn. Happy Halloween, ya idiots. I dictate your calendars now. 😈
3. McDonald's Is Testing a French Toast McGriddle
McDonald's has started testing a new FRENCH TOAST McGriddle at over 200 locations in Minnesota. Instead of mini-pancake buns, it's two pieces of French toast. And if it's popular, they'll start selling it nationwide.
Unlike the normal McGriddle that comes with one type of meat, the French toast version has bacon AND sausage, plus eggs and cheese. And they're using the circular egg they put on McMuffins, not the folded-over scrambled-egg kind.
They've been selling the original McGriddle since 2003, and this would be the first major update in 15 years. So at this pace, we can expect a McGriddle with waffle buns around the year 2033.

Another food ranking list that is wrong. What upside down world do you live in where Taco Bell fries are ranked above Whataburger?https://t.co/YDafh1JhED— DCiphered (@DCiphered) August 14, 2018
5. Could Electric Forks Replace Salt?
Most of us have way too much salt in our diets, because it makes everything taste great. But a new study found you might be able to accomplish the same thing without all the salt by literally SHOCKING your mouth while you eat.
Researchers at the University of Maine created a set of chopsticks that deliver an electric pulse every time they touch your tongue. And they found it enhanced the flavor of food without ANY salt. They used chopsticks, but it would work with forks too.
They were able to make foods taste salty, sour, and even bitter, just by changing the frequency. But they say a lot more research is needed. And it's not clear if there are any side effects.
