Top 7 Fast Foods with Cult Followings

It's McRib season, ladies and gentlemen. While some people are suspicious that McRib's limited availability is a mixed conspiracy of exploiting low pork prices and creating artificial demand by limiting supply, others keep their mouths shut and only open it to eat as many glorious BBQ sandwiches as humanly possible.  In honor of this week's return of the McRib, here's a list of the 7 fast foods with the largest, most rabid, dedicated and seemingly inexplicable cult followings.

These followings pine for these foods and franchises in the same way all of America pines for those special three words every single year: "McRib is Back." These foods are especially popular with stoners.

What are the best fast foods with cult followings? You may be surprised to learn of some the foods on this list, yet you really shouldn't be knowing the diehard fans that these restaurants have.

    WHAT IS IT?
    Small slider hamburgers (that can also be purchased at your local supermarket if you don't happen to live in an area with White Castle establishments) that are inexpensive and supposedly some of the greatest stoner/drunk food around. Why? Because they're greasy, EXTREMELY inexpensive and can be consumed almost like popcorn.

    THE PHENOMENON
    When you have a whole movie named and set about your product and store, you know you've touched "cult" level of popularity.

    The natural thing to call them? Cravers. Besides the slightly creepy zombie-like connotation, their menu can reach crazy proportions of consumption-implication. Known for their sliders (named so because they’re so small that they can just slide down your esophagus in one gulp), the chain offers prescription food to the addicted craver in big sizes.

    By "craver", for the most part, what is meant is "stoned or high individual", at least in popular culture. Much like Taco Bell has gotten a reputation for being a great stoner food, White Castle is the end-all, be-all of stoner foods... supposedly.

    But more on their portions: If you want it bad enough, you can get a Crave Case or even a Crave Crate. 30 sliders for 15 dollars or 100 sliders for 50 dollars, respectively.

    Only fast food restaurants can get away with selling that much food to cure an addiction, and only one with such a loyal following (enough for one of the most iconic Stoner Movies of all time to be built around the establishment/food product) can continue to operate on a platform of such extreme excess.

    One thing the White Castle consuming community has adopted which is notable is the building of impressive structures using their used hamburger cases like so: A White Castle castle.
