Pizza Hut The Ultimate Hershey s Chocolate Chip Cookie

Update: Click here to read our Pizza Hut The Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie review

For those of you who follow fast food as much as I do, I know what you’re thinking as you look at the photo above: Ugh. I need a real hobby and Papa John’s did it.

Well, Papa John’s version doesn’t come with the chocolate from the brown juggernaut known as Hershey’s. Pizza Hut’s Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie measures eight inches, will be cut into eight slices, and will average 165 Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips per cookie. If you happen to purchase one and are willing to count the number of chocolate chips, please leave your results in the comments.

The cookie will be $4.99 with the purchase of a pizza or $5.99 by itself.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Rally’s Crispy Chicken Tacos

Rally's Crispy Chicken Tacos

Rally's Crispy Chicken Tacos Closeup

Impulsive Buy readers Jacob and Ali purchased these Crispy Chicken Tacos at a Rally’s location in Bowling Green, Ohio. According to Jacob, it consisted of “a pile of popcorn chicken chunks, liquid cheese, and ranch sauce with some lettuce thrown in for texture.” There’s also a spicy version.

He went on to say, “The tacos weren’t bad, but they weren’t anything super noteworthy. The cheese & ranch sauces overpowered everything, and the tacos weren’t very well-constructed. They were more like a messy wrap than anything else.”

There’s no mention of them on the Rally’s or Checkers websites, but if you’ve seen and/or tried them, let us know in the comments.
