Reading the daily news is a lot more fun when it's about celebrities.

The intersection between pop culture and food is undeniable. Not only do the year’s flashiest award shows and events necessitate lavish menus and accompanying parties at homes across the country (think of the Oscars), but in most cases, stars are just like you and me. They love food.

For the 10 Biggest Celebrity Food Stories of 2017 Slideshow, click here.

2017 was a bumpy year in general, and the food celebrity world was no exception. There were multiple big-name deaths, such as Mary Valastro and Australian celebrity chef Darren Simpson. But amidst those sad celebrity stories, others offered hope — as when celebrity chef Jamie Oliver offered his restaurant to help victims of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in London.

But not every big food story was rooted in tragedy. There’s some fun in the world too! Hello Kitty and Beyoncé brought joy to millions with a kitschy Spam meal kit and a lavish birthday cake, respectively.

So as we looked back at 2017, we combed through our most-read celebrity food news stories. And here they are to relive the good times and the bad.


10 fast-food restaurants with secret menu items

Sometimes what you see is much less than what you can get.

Secret restaurant menus aren't exactly a secret, but their contents can be, well, hidden. There are benefits to asking what's beyond the traditional menu, even if it means ordering a custom meal at a restaurant where you have a regular favorite.

Starbucks recently added Honey Citrus Mint Tea, also known as “medicine ball tea,” to its menu, but people have been ordering the formerly “secret” drink since October.

Medicine ball tea, regarded as the ideal cure for the common cold, is one of many Starbucks secret menu items. And Starbucks is just one chain with hidden options. Here are 10 more restaurants with meals you didn't know existed:

• In-N-Out Burger’s not-so-secret menu. While In-N-Out is transparent about the restaurant’s “secret” menu — which is just a list of popular custom orders — casual customers may not know you can get a 4x4 burger consisting of four beef patties and four cheese slices. Other popular orders include a grilled cheese, a “protein style” burger with lettuce instead of buns and the “Animal style” burger, which includes a mustard-cooked beef patty.

• Burger King. The restaurant goes big with the “Suicide Burger,” a four-patty cheeseburger with bacon and sauce. You can also order Frings — a combination of onion rings and fries, according to CBS News.

• Nando’s. While Nando's doesn't call it a hidden menu, there are multiple non-menu items customers can ask for, according to Nicola Davis, food manager for Nando's Peri-Peri USA. If you can't decide between the array of sauces, you can get multiple sauces split in halves or even quarters on your sandwich. Another non-menu option, which Davis said is "hidden in plain sight," is pineapple — on anything you order, whether it's a wrap or a salad.

• Five Guys. If the burgers and fries are getting old, treat yourself to the restaurant's very own patty melt. At Five Guys, you can add a beef patty to a grilled cheese sandwich for a spin on a classic, according to MSN.

• Taco Bell. If you ask your local Taco Bell employee to prepare “The Hulk” for you, they might stare blankly. It might be more effective to ask for a bean-and-cheese burrito with guacamole to transform a regular meal into, well, a green one. Other secret menu items include the Incredible Hulk — with even more ingredients — and a loaded Superman burrito, according to the Arizona Republic.

• Chick-fil-A. While spokesperson Amanda Hannah said in an email to USA TODAY that team members "may occasionally experiment with recipes in the kitchen," the company cannot confirm that chicken quesadillas — a commonly discussed non-menu item at Chick-fil-A — are available. Business Insider reported a list of non-menu items in 2015 including the quesadillas, buffalo chicken sandwiches and more. Hannah added that some customers like to combine iced tea and lemonade to create an Arnold Palmer.

• Chipotle. Typically, standing in a Chipotle line is an internal battle of burrito or bowl, but there are a few more options to throw into the mix, BuzzFeed reports. You can get a regular quesadilla from the menu, or you can fill a quesadilla with your favorite burrito fillings for a hybrid. The opposite option would be a quesarito, or a burrito that replaces the tortilla with a cheese quesadilla.

• McDonalds. If you're having a tough time deciding between a McFlurry and an apple pie, two classic McDonald's desserts, you can combine the two by ordering an Apple Pie McFlurry.

• Wendy’s. CBS News reports that the store secretly offers The Grand Slam, also referred to as the Meat Cube, because the burger with four beef patties resembles a cube of meat thanks to each patty’s square shape.

Starbucks recently added Honey Citrus Mint Tea, also known as “medicine ball tea,” to its menu, but people have been ordering the formerly “secret” drink since October.

Medicine ball tea, regarded as the ideal cure for the common cold, is one of many Starbucks secret menu items. And Starbucks is just one chain with hidden options. Here are 10 more restaurants with meals you didn't know existed:

• In-N-Out Burger’s not-so-secret menu. While In-N-Out is transparent about the restaurant’s “secret” menu — which is just a list of popular custom orders — casual customers may not know you can get a 4x4 burger consisting of four beef patties and four cheese slices. Other popular orders include a grilled cheese, a “protein style” burger with lettuce instead of buns and the “Animal style” burger, which includes a mustard-cooked beef patty.

• Burger King. The restaurant goes big with the “Suicide Burger,” a four-patty cheeseburger with bacon and sauce. You can also order Frings — a combination of onion rings and fries, according to CBS News.

• Nando’s. While Nando's doesn't call it a hidden menu, there are multiple non-menu items customers can ask for, according to Nicola Davis, food manager for Nando's Peri-Peri USA. If you can't decide between the array of sauces, you can get multiple sauces split in halves or even quarters on your sandwich. Another non-menu option, which Davis said is "hidden in plain sight," is pineapple — on anything you order, whether it's a wrap or a salad.

• Five Guys. If the burgers and fries are getting old, treat yourself to the restaurant's very own patty melt. At Five Guys, you can add a beef patty to a grilled cheese sandwich for a spin on a classic, according to MSN.

• Taco Bell. If you ask your local Taco Bell employee to prepare “The Hulk” for you, they might stare blankly. It might be more effective to ask for a bean-and-cheese burrito with guacamole to transform a regular meal into, well, a green one. Other secret menu items include the Incredible Hulk — with even more ingredients — and a loaded Superman burrito, according to the Arizona Republic.

• Chick-fil-A. While spokesperson Amanda Hannah said in an email to USA TODAY that team members "may occasionally experiment with recipes in the kitchen," the company cannot confirm that chicken quesadillas — a commonly discussed non-menu item at Chick-fil-A — are available. Business Insider reported a list of non-menu items in 2015 including the quesadillas, buffalo chicken sandwiches and more. Hannah added that some customers like to combine iced tea and lemonade to create an Arnold Palmer.

• Chipotle. Typically, standing in a Chipotle line is an internal battle of burrito or bowl, but there are a few more options to throw into the mix, BuzzFeed reports. You can get a regular quesadilla from the menu, or you can fill a quesadilla with your favorite burrito fillings for a hybrid. The opposite option would be a quesarito, or a burrito that replaces the tortilla with a cheese quesadilla.

• McDonalds. If you're having a tough time deciding between a McFlurry and an apple pie, two classic McDonald's desserts, you can combine the two by ordering an Apple Pie McFlurry.

• Wendy’s. CBS News reports that the store secretly offers The Grand Slam, also referred to as the Meat Cube, because the burger with four beef patties resembles a cube of meat thanks to each patty’s square shape.

Sometimes what you see is much less than what you can get.

Secret restaurant menus aren't exactly a secret, but their contents can be, well, hidden. There are benefits to asking what's beyond the traditional menu, even if it means ordering a custom meal at a restaurant where you have a regular favorite.
