FAST FOOD FIVE – 11/5/2013

Southbound

Here are five recent fast food news bites:

The Burger King Big King is back! Oh, the memories I have with the Big King. In the mid-90s, I received an angry letter from McDonald’s after writing a review about the Big King for my school newspaper. Yeah, it’s a long story. (via Grub Grade)

Baskin-Robbins Flavor of the Month is Gingerbread Junction, a flavor I wanna be munchin’ after a function, unless the freezers at my local Baskin-Robbins happen to malfunction. (via Baskin-Robbins)

Another month, another way Dunkin’ Donuts has combined meat, cheese, egg, and bread. But this time it’s a little spicy. (via PR Newswire)

Speaking of spicy, Subway now offers a creamy sriracha sauce to help mask the flavor of their sandwiches. (via PR Newswire)

Get ready for Dunkin’ Donuts’ Red Velvet Latte. I’m not sure how one would get ready for that, but might I suggest painting your body red or purchasing a red velvet suit. (via The Consumerist)

SPOTTED ON MENUS – Jack in the Box Jack’s Blazin’ Chicken Sandwich

Jack's Blazin' Chicken Sandwich

Ryan at Grub Grade tells me Jack’s Blazin’ Chicken Sandwich, which is being tested in limited markets, has Ghost Peppers, which is one of the hottest chili peppers in the world. Someday, I hope this sandwich burns my taste buds and makes me cry like a little boy who dropped his ice cream cone. (Spotted by Steve.)

SPOTTED ON MENUS – Wendy’s Bacon Portabella Melt on Brioche

Wendy's Bacon Portabella Melt on Brioche

The Wendy’s Bacon Portabella Melt isn’t new, but I believe the brioche bun is. Wendy’s sure has been busy with their buns. First, a pretzel bun and now a brioche bun. I hope the Swiss bread Zopf is next. (Spotted by Brad in Chicago)

Here are five recent fast food news bites:

Hey, Impulsive Buy readers in Japan and those who are visiting Japan soon! McDonald’s Japan is bringing back the McPork Sandwich for a limited time. With its popularity and it being discontinued, I could say it’s Japan’s McRib, if the McRib wasn’t offered in Japan a few years ago. (via McDonald’s Japan translated via Google)

Sonic has sandwiches with habanero sauce, so have ready in your hand one of the thousands of possible Sonic drink combinations. (via Grub Grade)

Dunkin’ Donuts has brought back their Boston Scream Donut…or as I shall call it from now on, the Booston Scream Boonut. Yup. I am horrible at names. Remind me to not name any of my future children. (via PR Newswire)

Hey, Impulsive Buy readers in Australia! You’re getting McDonald’s McWraps and their convenient eating sleeves! (via Burger Business)

Get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut when you wear your Halloween costume in store on October 31. Or get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut by hanging out near a Krispy Kreme drive-thru window and hoping someone drops one and doesn’t run over it. (via Krispy Kreme)
