Subway is offering six-inch Cold Cut Combo and Meatball Marinara sandwiches for two dollars to celebrate Customer Appreciation Month. I would’ve preferred a Christmas gift, but I guess this is okay. (via Subway)

Nothing says “holiday” like a chipotle chicken and bacon pizza. (via Business Wire)

The Candy Cane Chill Blizzard is back at Dairy Queen! Oh wait. Since this has come out every year for the past few years, let me rewrite the first sentence to truly express my excitement. Yawn. The Candy Cane Chill Blizzard is back at Dairy Queen…aaaagain. (via Grub Grade)

Maybe it’s the Thanksgiving that’s still in me, but just reading about eight pieces of chicken, two sides, four biscuits, and a dozen chocolate chip cookies makes me sleepy. (via Business Wire)

Jamba Juice’s Eggnog Jubilee is back! And we already reviewed it! And just let me add another sentence so that I can use another exclamation point! (via PR Newswire)

Did you know Burger King Japan has an annual promotion that allows diners to eat as many Whoppers as they can within 30 minutes? Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. (via Rocket News)

Chick-fil-A’s Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake is back! (via Chick-fil-A’s Website)

Sure, National Un-Turkey Day sounds completely made up and really should be on the Friday after Thanksgiving, but if you’d like to celebrate it Sonic is offering 1/2 off cheeseburgers tomorrow (November 26th). (via Grub Grade)

Hungry after waiting in numerous lines at Black Friday sales? Go wait in another line for 61 cent corn dogs at Wienerschnitzel. (via Wienerschnitzel’s Facebook Page)

SPOTTED ON MENUS – Larger Taco Bell Sauce Packets

Longer Taco Bell Sauce Packets

Okay, not at all spotted on a menu, but Impulsive Buy reader Garrett sent us photos of larger Taco Bell sauce packets he received from a Taco Bell in Southern California. They’re an inch longer than the packets I’m given way too much of. Anyone else receive these longer packets recently? (Spotted by Garrett.)

Oh, sriracha. Slowly making your way through the fast food chains after a year of being used in almost every snack type possible. (via Grub Grade)

Sonic’s Chocolate Holiday Mint Molten Cake Sundae makes me wish there was a Sonic Drive-In here. Oh, who am I kidding? The only reason why I wish for a Sonic Drive-In is because I want to be served by someone on roller skates. (via Business Wire)

Maybe it’s just me, but classic Italian sandwiches aren’t enough to convince me to visit a Quiznos. However, if they were served to me by someone on roller skates… (via Quiznos Twitter)

More Starbucks pastries that’ll be washed down with Starbucks coffee. (via Starbucks Melody)

I wish this McItaly Gran Chianina burger would Mc its way to the United States, but it definitely won’t. (via Brand Eating)

Starbucks is testing new holiday beverages, but who knows if we’ll get to taste them this year. Hey, Starbucks! Do you know what would be a great gift this holiday season? Letting everyone taste your new holiday beverages. (via Starbucks Melody)

Speaking of Starbucks holiday beverages, for a limited time you can buy one Starbucks holiday drink and get another free. (via Grub Grade)

This Cinnabon product is the opposite of Cinnabon’s original cinnamon rolls — small and not messy. (via Foodbeast)

McDonald’s is testing build-your-own burgers at a Southern California location. Personally, I’d rather be allowed to build my own value meals. (via Burger Business)

Great. There could be even more drink combinations at Sonic Drive-In. I look forward to the day when there are billions. (via Brand Eating)
