Sacré bleu! KFC France is offering fried fish. (via Burger Business)

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)

Half-price shakes at Sonic! So save some money AND make your body’s insides as cold as your body on the outside. (via Sonic’s Facebook Page)

Domino’s Pizza is testing a product called the Sandwich Slice, which looks like it uses the same bread as their Oven Baked Sandwiches and reminds me of French bread pizza. It’s $2.99 each and comes in four set flavors (Pepperoni Garlic Bread, Ham & 4 Cheese, Garden Garlic Chicken, and Italian Club). Or you can let your creativity go wild and create your own. WHEEE! (Spotted by TIB’s own Kelley in Phoenix)
