  • Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino Coming for Halloween

    Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino Coming for Halloween

    We all remember the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, which for me anyway seemed to be tapping into some widespread cultural joke that couldn’t be completely understood or grasped. I do understand Halloween, though, so the Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino that’s reported to be on the way makes perfect sense to me. The Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino is so […]

  • Cups Coffee: Coffee Pods Perfected

    Cups Coffee: Coffee Pods Perfected

    Keurig and other comparable single-serving coffee pod brands are mighty convenient, but they carry a host of inevitable downsides that go along with that convenience. From a coffee lover’s (and not an environmentalist’s) point of view, one of the biggest of those downsides is the fact that the coffee inside the K-Cups isn’t fresh – […]

  • Halloween Harland: Official Colonel Sanders Halloween Costume

    Halloween Harland: Official Colonel Sanders Halloween Costume

    Halloween is coming up in less than three weeks, do you know who you’re dressing up as? I’d say with all the KFC Colonels running amok through TV and internet advertising over the past, uh, however long they’ve been doing this nonsense, there’s probably going to be a lot of Colonels on Halloween too. Now, […]

  • Tim Hortons Buffalo Latte Now Available

    Tim Hortons Buffalo Latte Now Available

    Honestly, why not? That’s all I can say about the latest food novelty that has been developed presumably as a bit of counter-programming to the pumpkin spice trend. It’s the Tim Hortons Buffalo Latte, and I honestly don’t know if it’s helping. I admit I’m intrigued by the idea of the Tim Hortons Buffalo Latte, […]

  • Burger King Spicy Nuggets: Free to Anyone Named Wendy in LA, NY, and Miami

    Burger King Spicy Nuggets: Free to Anyone Named Wendy in LA, NY, and Miami

    It’s been a good day for Burger King‘s social media department. First we had the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake which got a few headlines and Facebook/Twitter shares, and now we have something much more amusing: New Burger King Spicy Nuggets being given away to anyone named “Wendy” in select markets. Yes, that is a blow […]

  • Pizza Hut Pizza Parka: “Made from the New Delivery Pouch” (Video)

    Pizza Hut Pizza Parka: “Made from the New Delivery Pouch” (Video)

    A “pizza parka” kind of sounds like it could be one of two things: A parka with a pizza-inspired visual design, or a parka actually made out of pizza. The first isn’t that interesting and the second is probably impossible, so it’s a good thing there’s actually a third option: The Pizza Hut Pizza Parka, […]

  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake Comes to Burger King

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake Comes to Burger King

    It’s redundant for me at this point to point out how insane the world of fast food is getting with regards to research and development of new products – it seems that every day some outrageous concoction is announced in the hopes of getting some precious viral heat. I acknowledge my part in this giant […]

  • McVegan Meat-Free Hamburger Being Tested by McDonald’s

    McVegan Meat-Free Hamburger Being Tested by McDonald’s

    Good news for vegans who still feel an insatiable craving for McDonald’s fries from time to time: You may soon be able to get a burger with that, which I think is probably more nutritionally sound than just eating a giant pile of French fries. It’s the McVegan, now being tested in Tampere, Finland. A […]

  • Taco Bell Chicken and Biscuits Being Tested in Indiana

    Taco Bell Chicken and Biscuits Being Tested in Indiana

    Taco Bell officially has what experts refer to as Breakfast Fever, and I don’t mean to alarm anyone but unfortunately there is no cure. The latest symptomatic flare-up has been reported at Bell locations in Indianapolis: Taco Bell chicken and biscuits. Reports don’t seem to specify a catchy brand name as of yet for Taco […]
