List Rules List of The Best, Most Recently Introduced Fast Food Items

This is a list of the best new fast food items of 2012, as voted on and ranked by experts and fans alike.

The world of fast food is a very competitive one and each restaurant is out to beat the others as the most favorite chain in The United States and around the world. Eateries like McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, and Pizza Hut are all vying for your hard-earned dollars via your taste buds. This year, many of them went beyond their usual menu items and introduced a slew of new and improved goodies for mass consumption.

We all acknowledge that most items on a fast food item are not good for you, which is why most franchises have decided to go healthy, like over at McDonald's with their Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal and Wendy's with their Berry Almond Chicken Salad. The guys making the decisions over at each chain's headquarters didn't want to lose the demographic that tend to be worried about their weight and about their overall health. Other restaurants, though, have decided to not seek that market and go straight for the gut, so to speak. Places like Burger King, which introduced the Bacon Sundae and Taco Bell with its Doritos Locos Tacos, know that not everyone in America is worried about how high their cholesterol may be or if they're on the verge of developing Type I diabetes.

That's not a complete slam on fast food though. For the most part, the notable food items on this list taste pretty good, especially if you're short on cash and are on the run. And frankly, sometimes you just need a little comfort food to get you through the day.

Please vote for the favorite fast food items to be introduced this year. If you don't see the comfort food you choose to eat whenever you're in one of the major eateries, feel free to add it to this list so that other voters could see and then decided if it's one of their favorite goodies as well.
