FAST FOOD NEWS: Dunkin’ Matcha Lattes

News Dunkin Matcha

Dunkin’ is expanding its tea offerings with its new Matcha Lattes.

According to the coffee, donut, and, I guess, tea chain, its new lattes feature high-quality Matcha green tea powder that’s produced in the Nishio region of the Aichi prefecture in Japan, where the finest Matcha has been grown for more than 800 years. Dunkin’ takes that powder and blends it with your choice of milk to create its lattes, which are available hot, iced, or frozen.

A large Matcha Iced Latte with whole milk has 304 calories, 12 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 35 milligrams of cholesterol, 170 milligrams of sodium, 44 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 43 grams of sugar, and 13 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts

News KFC Chicken and Donuts

After a successful test last year, KFC’s Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts is now available nationwide at participating restaurants through March 16, or while supplies last.

There are three ways to experience the savory fried chicken and glazed donut combo, with prices ranging from $5.49 to $7.99:

  1. Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Basket meal: chicken on the bone or Extra Crispy chicken tenders, paired with one donut. Also available as a big basket meal, which includes two donuts.
  2. Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Sandwich: an Extra Crispy chicken filet sandwiched between two glazed donuts.
  3. Customers can also add a donut to any meal for an additional cost, which makes me hope for Instagram photos of folks topping their KFC Famous Bowls with a donut.

If you need to read more about this sweet and savory combo, we reviewed Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts during its test run.

If you’ve tried this in any form (hopefully with a Famous Bowl), let us know what you think of it in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: McDonald’s Oreo Shamrock McFlurry

News McD Shamrock Oreo

McDonald’s Shamrock Shake turns 50 years old this year. But we really should subtract a few years for all the times the soft serve machine was going through the long process of being cleaned. (Although, that has gotten shorter.)

To celebrate the occasion, McDonald’s is bringing back the Shamrock Shake nationwide for the first time since 2017 and offering the new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry that features vanilla soft serve mixed with minty Shamrock flavoring and Oreo cookie pieces.

Both treats will be available for a limited time at participating locations starting on February 19. If you want to know a little bit more about the Shamrock Shake, McDonald’s has a whole post dedicated to it.
