FAST FOOD FIVE – 10/11/2013


Here are five recent fast food news bites:

Start your morning with three maple sausage links, American cheese, and egg in a biscuit. Or be like 25 percent of Americans and skip breakfast. But if you eat breakfast, studies have shown, you’re more likely to remember facts like 25 percent of Americans skip breakfast. (via Business Wire)

Remember those Burger King Satisfries we reviewed recently? Well, Burger King is offering free Satisfries this weekend. So go get some free carbs! (via Huffington Post)

Including this post, we’ve mentioned Pei Wei only twice on this site. And both posts involved sriracha. So I think I’m going to create an official TIB rule: We will mention Pei Wei only when they come out with a new sriracha dish. (via Business Wire)

NEWS: Pizza Hut’s New Overstuffed Pizza Would’ve Been Awesome At Promoting 1996’s ‘Independence Day’

2012-11-13 19.44.52-1

Pizza Hut’s new Overstuffed Pizza looks like The Hut stuck two P’Zones together, but it also looks like the alien ship in the film Independence Day. Each Overstuffed Pizza contains toppings, sauce, and cheese between two crusts, and provides six slices. The latest from Pizza Hut comes in two varieties — Italian Meat Trio and Supremo.

To be honest, I’m extremely disappointed this is the latest and greatest from Pizza Hut here in the US. While Canada got the frickin’ Pizza Hut Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza, which was originally introduced in the UK, we got what is basically a pizza on top of another pizza.

Nutrition information for the Overstuffed Pizza is not available on the Pizza Hut website yet, but I bet with those two layers of crust it has a lot of carbs.

NEWS: Pizza Hut Middle East Proves Once Again It’s More Awesome Than Pizza Hut USA With Kit Kat Pops and Stuffed Cone Crust Pizza

Hey, Pizza Hut USA, I really enjoyed your Garlic Bread Pizza, but what have you done lately?


But your Middle Eastern counterpart has recently come up with some crazy shit. How crazy? How about a pizza with cones as the edge crust, each of which is stuffed with either cream cheese, honey mustard chicken, or chicken & cream cheese. They’ve also have Kit Kats wrapped in pizza dough. Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if next month they introduced a pizza with Kit Kat stuffed crust.

Come on, Pizza Hut USA! Grow some culinary balls!
