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: Add Some Holiday Cheer To Your Burger King Meal With BK’s Gingerbread Cookie Sundae and Shake

This week, Burger King introduced two limited time only holiday desserts — the Gingerbread Cookie Sundae and Gingerbread Cookie Shake.

The Gingerbread Cookie Sundae features vanilla soft serve, topped with a gingerbread sauce and crumbled gingersnap cookies. It has a suggested retail price of $2.49. The hand-blended Gingerbread Cookie Shake is made up of vanilla soft serve and gingerbread syrup blended together with whipped topping and crumbled gingersnap cookies on top. It has a suggested retail price of $1.99.

Personally, I would’ve liked to have seen the Gingerbread Cookie Sundae feature a gingerbread man cookie dunked into the soft serve feet first to make him look like he’s lounging in the sundae.

That’s would’ve been extremely adorable.

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?

Nothing.

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!

FAST FOOD NEWS: Pei Wei Asian Diner To Offer Sriracha Chicken Next Month, But Not The Sriracha You Love and Burn Your Mouth With

How to Eat Healthy at Pei Wei Menu

Pei Wei Asian Diner, P.F. Chang’s fast casual sister, will start offering their new Sriracha Chicken on October 8. To promote the spicy chicken dish, Pei Wei has put up a special website detailing how the dish was developed.

Now before you sriracha sauce fans get excited, you should know that the sauce they used isn’t the Rooster Sauce we all know, love, and burn our taste buds with. Instead, Pei Wei’s chefs flew to Thailand, a place filled with sriracha sauces we all don’t know and don’t love, to create their own sriracha sauce.

According to the Pei Wei’s Sriracha Chicken website, the dish will also feature pineapples, tomatoes, and Chinese long beans.

Me likey this trend of fast food joints offering sweet potato on their menu because I love the vitamin A it contains, which gives me killer night vision, which allows me to scoff at those who need flashlights.

Wendy’s had their Baked Sweet Potato, Burger King has their Sweet Potato Fries, and now Carl’s Jr. has made available their own Sweet Potato Fries.

Although, to be honest, this whole sweet potato thing should’ve happened a long time ago.

According to Foodbeast, Carl’s Jr.’s Sweet Potato Fries are available for a limited time and won’t be available at sibling chain Hardee’s. They’re available in small, medium, and large and prices start at $1.99.

A small serving of Carl’s Jr. Sweet Potato Fries has 440 calories, 24 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 480 milligrams of sodium, 54 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of fiber, 16 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein.
