    KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0: A Fried Chicken Box/Video Game Controller

    I imagine most who write or talk about the new KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0 will categorize it as something like a “fried chicken box that’s also a video game controller.” That’s totally accurate, and completely in line with KFC‘s recent strategy to do a bunch of crazy stuff to get people to tweet their brand […]

    Taco Mode: Lyft Partners with Taco Bell

    Taco Bell is the late-night spot of choice for people who either don’t want to get out of their car or who don’t live in Waffle House country. Rideshare app Lyft recognizes this, and in doing so has partnered with Taco Bell for the new Taco Mode feature, reportedly rolling out later this week for […]

    McDelivery Collection: McDonald’s Getting in on Apparel Game

    First it was KFC Ltd, and now it’s the McDelivery Collection, a line of limited edition streetwear launched by McDonald’s to commemorate the impending launch of McDelivery, which allows users to access the dangerous prospect of Mickey D’s home delivery courtesy of UberEATS.

    KFC Ltd: A Ridiculous New Merchandise Line from The Colonel

    KFC has handily surpassed Burger King and all its other competitors in the race to come up with the most ridiculous promotional gimmicks. Their latest almost seems quaint compared to launching a chicken sandwich into space – it’s KFC Ltd, a new line of Colonel-branded merchandise. The KFC Ltd collection includes socks, pillowcases, ironic t-shirts […]

    Top Ramen Pringles Are Coming Soon

    I never thought about it before now, but in many ways Pringles are the Top Ramen noodles of snack foods. The reason I’m thinking about that isn’t because I’m in dire financial straits, but because there is a new line of Top Ramen Pringles coming to Dollar General retail locations later this month. As the […]

    World View Zinger 1: KFC Launches Chicken Sandwich Into Space (Video)

    Donald Trump recently said that privatization of space exploration would play a big role in the United States’ future, and Colonel Sanders has kind of proven him right with the launch of World View Zinger 1 – one small step for man, one giant leap for a chicken sandwich. The World View Zinger 1 is […]

  • Lucky Charms Shake Comes to Burger King

    Lucky Charms Shake Comes to Burger King

    This is just me, but personally, I am not into the trend of putting breakfast cereals in other foods. Just last night I had a terrible doughnut that had stale Cocoa Puffs on top, but there must be some appeal in this idea, since Burger King has unveiled the new Lucky Charms Shake. The BK […]

    Starbucks Coffee Ice: A Solution to Watered Down Iced Coffee and Frappes

    There’s nothing like the first swig of an ice cold iced coffee, but the last swig of an iced coffee is another creature altogether. That’s due to the well known problem that faces every beverage served on ice: It slowly, inexorably, gets watered down. But according to recent reports, select Starbucks locations are testing a […]
