FAST FOOD NEWS: Little Caesars Impossible Supreme Pizza

Little Caesars Impossible Supreme Pizza

Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat are the new Coke and Pepsi. Like the soft drink makers, they’re both trying to get their plant-based meat substitutes into as many fast food chains as possible.

There’s White Castle’s Impossible Slider, Del Taco’s Beyond Tacos, Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, Carl’s Jr.’s Beyond Famous Star, and now there’s Little Caesars’ Impossible Supreme Pizza.

The Impossible Supreme is a large pizza topped with sauce made from fresh-packed, vine-ripened California crushed tomatoes, mozzarella and Muenster cheeses, caramelized onions, mushrooms, green peppers, and the Impossible Sausage, which is made from plants.

According to Little Caesars, a 1/4-pound serving of the Impossible Sausage has 270 calories, 17 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol and 17 grams of protein. To give you a little perspective, 1/4-pound of regular beef sausage has 340 calories, 29 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 70 milligrams of cholesterol, and 14 grams of protein.

Unfortunately, the pizza is being tested at participating Little Caesars locations in Yakima, Wash.; Ft. Meyers, Fla.; and Albuquerque, N.M. for a limited time for $12 plus tax.

If you happen to live near a test location and tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Carl’s Jr. Western Fries and Triple Western Bacon Cheeseburger

Carl s Jr Western Fries and Triple Western Bacon Cheeseburger

Is making deep fried finger foods taste like a burger a trend now? Jack in the Box tested the idea and now Carl’s Jr. has done it with its new Western Fries.

The new side is a different take on the chain’s popular Western Bacon Cheeseburger. It includes a serving of crispy natural cut fries, coated in a brand new Western seasoning that, according to Carl’s Jr., delivers all the taste of the Western Bacon Cheeseburger including BBQ sauce, charbroiled beef patties, cheese, and even notes of the sesame seed bun.

Oh, but that’s not all from Carl’s Jr. regarding the Western Bacon Cheeseburger.

It’s also offering for a limited time a Triple Western Bacon Cheeseburger that includes THREE charbroiled all-beef patties (but you probably figured that out from its name), three slices of American cheese, three (just kidding, there’s four for some reason) slices of Applewood-smoked bacon, crispy onions rings, and a tangy BBQ sauce on a seeded bun.

The two menu items are available at participating Carl’s Jr. restaurants nationwide. The Western Fries start at $2.99, while the Triple Western Bacon Cheeseburger starts at $7.99.
