I’m not sure if the margarita yogurt will be salty, but I’m positive it’ll be artificial sweetener-y. (Spotted by Stefanie at Giant.)

Jimmy Dean Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick (Apple Cinnamon and Very Berry)

Oh. My. Goodness. They’re multiplying. Oh, for those of you who haven’t been keeping track at home, these corn dog-inspired breakfast thingies started off with original and blueberry varieties, and for a while there was a chocolate chip one, but I believe these are the first new flavors in years. (Spotted by Paul at Acme.)

Here are five recent fast food news bites:

Love Mountain Dew Kickstart Black Cherry? Do you also love brain freezes? If that’s the case, here you go. (via Brand Eating)

If you eat a Dunkin’ Donuts Mint Oreo donut and some of its green frosting gets stuck to your face, I believe that still counts as you wearing green. (via PR Newswire)

Hey, Impulsive Buy readers who are Pizza Hut employees! Would this be a pain the ass to make if we had it in the United States? (via Japanese Snack Reviews)

To get a better understanding of McDonald’s Australia’s Chicken Schnitzel Sandwiches, I looked up the word “schnitzel” and found out it’s “a thin slice of veal or other light meat, coated in breadcrumbs and fried.” Thanks, McDonald’s Australia! My German vocabulary has been expanded by one word. (via Brand Eating)

Ingest half-price Sonic cheeseburgers on St. Patrick’s Day, then upchuck half-price Sonic cheeseburgers after too many green beers later on St. Patrick’s Day. (via Grub Grade)
