Are you drunk right now? Well, tell your designated driver to go to Jack in the Box because they have two new Monster Tacos. (via Jack in the Box)

Spend the extra money for the meal with this sandwich, get a bag of Fritos, and make the sandwich Fritos-ier. (via Grub Grade)

To experience chicken and waffles, you could heat up Banquet frozen chicken and toast some Eggo waffles. Or you could do slightly better (or worse). (via Foodbeast)

I’m not impressed with this flower-shaped pizza to celebrate the Chinese New Year. It’s the Year of the Horse, so shouldn’t the pizza be shaped like one? (via Brand Eating)

Are your hands cold? You could put on gloves. Or you could put a Sonic Chili Cheese Pretzel Dog in both hands. (via Grub Grade)

Do you know what this is missing? It needs tacos inside of it so it can have the tongue twisting name, Quesaritoco. (via Grub Grade)

CHEEEEEEEEESE!!! (via Brand Eating)

It’s still not cheeseburgers in pizza crust, but I guess this pizza will have to suffice. (via Grub Grade)

Look, McDonald’s U.S.A. I know you’re losing money and franchisees aren’t happy with all the limited time offers which make for stressful kitchens, but could you please come out with stuff like this. (via Foodbeast)

Taco Bell Loaded Grillers have been out for a while, and have new varieties, but I’m still surprised Taco Bell didn’t go with a name like Loaded Grillitos. Because, you know, Taco Bell. (via Brand Eating)

Here are five recent fast food news bites:

Pizza Hut is rolling out a new crust. My goodness. Pizza Hut has done so many things to pizza crust that aliens with probes must say, “Whoa! That’s a bit too much.” (via Grub Grade)

Pizza Hut is also selling pizza by the slice at select locations. Perhaps they’re practicing in order to take over food courts if Sbarro closes. (via Consumerist)

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Listen up everybody if you wanna take a chance. Just get on the floor and do the New Kids’ dance. Don’t worry ’bout nothing ’cause it won’t take long. We’re gonna put you in a trance with a funky song, ’cause you gotta be hangin’ tough, hangin’ tough, hangin’ tough. We’re rough. (via Brand Eating)

Until January 19th, order your Domino’s pizzas online and get a 50 percent discount. I guess New Year’s Resolutions can wait until January 20th. (via Grub Grade)

Wendy’s is testing a gouda bacon cheeseburger on a brioche bun. However, I’d really like to see Wendy’s test a brie bacon cheeseburger on a brioche bun just so I can find out if they’re willing to call it a Brie Bri. (via Grub Grade)

Wendy’s plans to release a ciabatta bacon cheeseburger. However, I’d really like to see Wendy’s release a brie bacon cheeseburger on a ciabatta bun just so I can find out if they’re willing to call it a Brie Cia. Hmm. Thought Brie Cia would work. It didn’t. (via Brand Eating)

Is it getting too cold outside? Well then, just walk into a Dunkin’ Donuts and stay there. You don’t have to purchase anything. I mean, it’s got to be warmer in a Dunkin’ Donuts than outside of a Dunkin’ Donuts. But if you feel bad about loitering, I guess you could try one of their new sweet treats. (via PR Newswire)

Start your New Year right with 99 cent corn dogs at Wienerschnitzel. Oh wait, did I say, “start your New Year right”? I meant to say break all your New Year’s resolutions to lose weight with 99 cent corn dogs at Wienerschnitzel. (via Wienerschnitzel’s Facebook Page)

Just the words “Krispy Kreme cheesecake doughtnuts” give me a heavy feeling in my stomach. (via Grub Grade)
