FAST FOOD NEWS: Sonic Double Stack Cheeseburgers


Sonic has added a new burger line to the menu — Double Stack Cheeseburgers.

The Quarter Pound Double Stack and SuperSONIC Double Stack are the two options available and both feature two 100 percent pure beef patties with a layer of melty cheese between them, crinkle cut dill pickles, grilled onions, mayo, and mustard on a toasted brioche bun.

The only real difference between them is the amount of beef. The Quarter Pound Double Stack Cheeseburger has, as you’ve probably figured out, two beef patties that equal a quarter pound. While the SuperSONIC Double Stack Cheeseburger comes with two beef patties that weigh a half pound.

Sonic’s Double Stack Cheeseburgers are available for a limited time at participating locations. The chain is also running a special promotion with one of the new burgers, offering the Quarter Pound one with a side of tots for $2.99.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Sonic Sweet Pretzel Twist

SONIC Sweet Pretzel Twist

Sonic Drive-In has added to its snack menu the Sweet Pretzel Twist.

It’s a sweet version of the Soft Pretzel Twist that was introduced at the beginning of the year. Instead of salt that the original one has, the snack features cinnamon sugar dusted on top of soft, buttered, and golden-brown dough. It also comes with a container of sweet cream cheese frosting for dipping.

Sonic’s Sweet Pretzel Twist is available for a limited time for $1.99 all day long, while supplies last at participating locations.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Philly Cheese King


The Nightmare King isn’t the only new burger from Burger King this month. The fast food chain also introduced the Philly Cheese King, or as I want to call it, the Philly CheesestaKing.

But, that’s dumb name because there’s no steak involved with it. It’s just like Burger King’s 2016 Extra Long Philly Cheeseburger. The Philly Cheese King is just two 1/4 lb. flame-grilled beef patties, American cheese, caramelized onions, and American cheese sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun. If you want carbs that’s fancier than that bun, the burger is also available with a toasted sourdough bun.

The Philly Cheese King has 900 calories, 55 grams of fat, 26 grams of saturated fat, 3 gram of trans fat, 210 milligrams of cholesterol, 1600 milligrams of sodium, 47 grams of carbohydrates, 1 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 56 grams of protein.

Fall WitchsBrew

Update: We reviewed it! Click here to read our review.

There’s a new Instagram-ready, barista-frustrating, and dentist fist-shaking Halloween-themed Starbucks beverage this year — the Witch’s Brew Frappuccino.

According to Starbucks, the beverage starts with a purple blend of “toad’s breath” and orange crème Frappuccino and a swirl of green “bat warts” (made with chia seeds), and it topped with vanilla whipped cream and dusting of green “lizard scale” powder.

The Witch’s Brew Frappuccino is available at participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico and select markets in the Caribbean for a limited time while supplies last.

A grande with whole milk has 390 calories, 16 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 gram of trans fat, 50 milligrams of cholesterol, 240 milligrams of sodium, 58 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 53 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of protein.

FAST FOOD NEWS: f’real Limited Edition Yellow Snow

F real Limited Edition Yellow Snow

f’real has come out with a new “flavor” for the snowy months.

Limited Edition Yellow Snow doesn’t taste like yellow snow. Although, to be honest, I’ve never tasted yellow snow. But I’m 100 percent sure it doesn’t taste lemony like this f’real variety does. Although, I don’t know if yellow snow made by someone who just drank a gallon of lemonade is lemony.

The lemon sherbet treat is made with 100 percent juice and has 330 calories, 6 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 20 milligrams of cholesterol, 65 milligrams of sodium, 66 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 62 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.
