You might want to pump the brakes if you see any fast food joints or chain restaurants announcing exciting news today -- it's April Fools' Day, and they're all trying to trick us. 

While McDonald's "new" milkshake sauce does sound intriguing, and a Halo Top face mask sounds delicious and refreshing, we should all be happy that some of these jokes are just jokes. Here are a few of the best pranks from chain restaurants. April Fools!
