  • KFC Chicken & Waffles Being Tested in Select Markets

    KFC Chicken & Waffles Being Tested in Select Markets

    One menu item I’ve always lamented the absence of in the KFC menu is chicken & waffles, a southern staple that probably ranks as one of the five or six best dishes ever invented. Now, KFC Chicken & Waffles is being tested out in a few very lucky select markets. Here’s KFC’s Senior Marketing Director on the new product: […]

  • Paving for Pizza: Domino’s is Now Filling Potholes

    Paving for Pizza: Domino’s is Now Filling Potholes

    Everyone knows that the United States of America’s infrastructure of roads, bridges, railroad tracks, and so on, the arteries that keep the country alive and which was once the greatest in the world, is crumbling. But I don’t think too many people could have predicted that Domino’s, rather than the federal government, would step in […]

    Burger King Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries

    If there’s one thing Burger King can be counted on for, it’s to introduce some new variation of their signature Chicken Fries every year or so, to keep the market nice and stimulated. Like now, for example, when the world is blessed with the introduction of Burger King Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries.  Unlike most Chicken Fries […]

    Hot Wheels Zoom In Car Has Built-In GoPro Mount (Video)

    When I was a young Hot Wheels fanatic, I would have flipped my metaphorical wig if there had been a way for me to sit behind the wheel of my precious tiny vehicles and see what a driver of such cars would see as they hurtled along my hastily assembled racetracks and obstacle courses. Children […]

    Coca-Cola Clear Debuts in Japan (Video)

    It’s been a while since the nation of Japan gave us another reason to be envious of their food and beverage innovations. Now, everybody who misses that brief period when Crystal Pepsi was available in grocery stories has just such a reason, with the debut of Coca-Cola Clear.  Coca-Cola Clear was reportedly conceived by Coke’s Japan […]

    Red Robin Offers Free Food to Teachers Today

    Summer has officially begun, which means it’s one of the only times it’s unambiguously sweet to be a teacher. So it seems like kind of a weird time for burger joint Red Robin to roll out a free food promotion for teachers — wouldn’t it be better to do it during the school year, when they could […]

  • A.1. Meat Scents: Meat-Scented Candles

    A.1. Meat Scents: Meat-Scented Candles

    The phrase “meat candle” makes me think of some lost William Burroughs novel, but actually it’s something slightly less disturbing: A line of meat-scented candles from A.1. Steak Sauce. They’re called A.1. Meat Scents, and the only bad news is that as of this writing they appear to be all sold out. As per the […]

    Whopper Donut from Burger King for National Doughnut Day (Video)

    Last week I told you about Krispy Kreme’s observance of National Doughnut Day. Back then I told you that in America, you can celebrate National Doughnut Day any way you choose, but even I didn’t expect Burger King to be among your options in that regard. That was before I learned about the Whopper Donut.  Far […]

    Katz’s Subscription Service from America’s Favorite Deli

    Katz’s Deli in New York is probably the most revered delicatessen in the world, but like everything cool about New York City you can find some version of it almost anywhere these days. I’m talking about Katz’s Subscription Service, which gives Fat Katz all over the country access to monthly shipments of that special good stuff. […]
