Jack in the Box is currently testing their own version of the croissant-donut hybrid (otherwise known as the cronut) in limited locations. Jack’s Croissant Donuts are coated with cinnamon sugar, but sadly there’s no filling like the original cronut. It’s available for 89 cents for one piece and $1.99 for three pieces.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Ben & Jerry’s Lazy Sunday and Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch Ice Cream

Ben  Jerry s Lazy Sunday Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s Lazy Sunday

Ben & Jerry’s introduced two new Saturday Night Live-inspired flavors: Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch and Lazy Sunday.

Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is made up of chocolate & sweet ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds, and a marshmallow swirl. It’s influenced by the SNL character, Gilly, a violent prank-happy schoolgirl. Lazy Sunday features vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl. The flavor was influenced by the popular SNL Digital Short, Lazy Sunday, which involves the two characters in the skit going to New York’s Magnolia Bakery and them macking on some cupcakes, because that bakery’s got all the bomb frostings. They love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling.

The Taco Bell Quesarito is a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla, and I really hope Taco Bell’s new quesadilla-burrito hybrid is the beginning of many more hybrid products with names that your smartphone wants so badly to autocorrect.

According to the L.A. Times, the burrito is available with seasoned beef ($1.99 SRP), shredded chicken ($2.79 SRP), or steak ($2.99 SRP), and also comes with Latin rice, chipotle sauce, and reduced-fat sour cream. The grilled quesadilla that’s wrapped around the burrito like an python is filled with melted cheese.
