FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Bacon Cheesy Tots

BK Bacon Cheesy Tots

Burger King has taken its popular Cheesy Tots, stuffed smoky bacon bits into them, and gave them the only logical name, Bacon Cheesy Tots.

If you’re unfamiliar with the fast food side, they’re potato bites with melted cheese and a crunchy bread crumb coating. Unfortunately, for fans of the original, only the Bacon Cheesy Tots are on the menu this time around, and only for a limited time.

An 8-piece order has 330 calories, 14 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 15 milligrams of cholesterol, 1020 milligrams of sodium, 41 grams of carbohydrates, ?? grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar, and 10 grams of protein.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Pizza Hut’s P’ZONE Returns

Pizza Hut P Zone

The P’ZONE is back! The P’ZONE is back! The product that’s like an upscale Hot Pocket that spends a lot of time at Gold’s Gym is back!

Can you believe it’s been 17 years since the debut of the P’ZONE? I don’t know whether I should cry or use the napkin I was going to use to wipe away my tears to soak up some of the grease that’ll ooze out of the P’ZONE I’m going to eat.

The menu item is basically the fast food chain’s version of a calzone. It features pizza toppings and cheese sealed in a toasted parmesan pizza crust, and comes with a side of marinara for dipping. It’s available in three varieties — Pepperoni, Meaty, and Supremo.

Some of Dairy Queen’s oldest and most recognizable treats are its soft serve cones with the signature curl at the top. The standard varieties are the classic cone and the chocolate dipped cone. A quick Google searching bring up other dipped cones, like cherry and caramel.

According to this photo Impulsive Buy reader Mary sent that was taken at her local DQ as they were unpacking new signage, the dessert chain is set to launch another dipped cone flavor — Dreamsicle.

It appears to be rolling out nationwide since it’s mentioned as an option in DQ’s press release for its Free Cone Day, which is on Wednesday, March 20.
