Pizza Hut The Ultimate Hershey s Chocolate Chip Cookie

Update: Click here to read our Pizza Hut The Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie review

For those of you who follow fast food as much as I do, I know what you’re thinking as you look at the photo above: Ugh. I need a real hobby and Papa John’s did it.

Well, Papa John’s version doesn’t come with the chocolate from the brown juggernaut known as Hershey’s. Pizza Hut’s Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie measures eight inches, will be cut into eight slices, and will average 165 Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips per cookie. If you happen to purchase one and are willing to count the number of chocolate chips, please leave your results in the comments.

The cookie will be $4.99 with the purchase of a pizza or $5.99 by itself.

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Sprite Blast Soda

Sprite Blast Soda

Wow. There have been two limited edition Sprite flavors this year. That’s gotta be some kind of record, right? According to this BevNet board post, the sweet and sour Sprite Blast is a 7-Eleven exclusive flavor. Wow. There have been four or five 7-Eleven exclusive flavors this year. That’s gotta be some kind of record, right?

As shown in the photo, Sprite Blast comes in a small 7.5-ounce can and it seems that might be the only size it comes in. I guess it’s so sour that no one could stand drinking a full 12 ounces. (Spotted by Sldy at 7-Eleven.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 7/14/2014

Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. If you’ve tried any of the products, share your thoughts about them in the comments.

J&D's Ghost Pepper Nacho Popcorn

I’m just going to proclaim 2014 as the Year of Ghost Peppers. Sure, there haven’t been THAT many ghost pepper products so far and we’re already halfway through 2014, but I’m going to keep saying it until it becomes true…or until it’s 2015. Whichever comes first. Chip Review got their hands on the Ghost Pepper Nacho ones. (Spotted by Dustin at World Market.)

Cherry Fanta Bottle

Last year, you had to go to another country or be fortunate enough to live near a restaurant with a Coke Freestyle machine to taste Fanta Cherry. This year, you no longer have to worry about plane rides or pushing buttons in order to get it. (Spotted by Aaron at Walmart.)

PowerIce copy

PowerIce

PowerIce has new flavors! Grape Score and Pomegranate Raspberry Rip! Let’s celebrate with exclamations points!!! And let’s celebrate Gatorade probably coming up with something similar in the near future…with exclamation points!!! (Spotted by Sylvia at Sprouts.)

Nestle Abuelita Mexican Chocolate Style Coffee-mate

I wonder what other little-known Nestle products will the company turn into Coffee-mate flavors. Carlos V? Kazoozles? Frosty Paws? (Spotted by Elizabeth at Walmart.)
