    IHOP ‘N GO: IHOP Rolls Out Home Delivery Service

    Uh oh – previous generations learned about the nutritional hazards of eating at IHOP the hard way, but at least they had the walk to and from the car through the parking lot to burn a few calories off the top. Now, with the unveiling of IHOP’s new online order platform IHOP ‘N GO and […]

  • Sticking-Out Steak Burger: Japanese Fast Food Chain Makes Literal Steakburger

    Sticking-Out Steak Burger: Japanese Fast Food Chain Makes Literal Steakburger

    In North America, we tend to think of the term “Steakburger” as a euphemism, one specifically employed by Steak ‘n Shake to refer to their cheeseburgers, which, while very good, are pretty much just regular cheeseburgers. But in Japan, the fast food burger joint Lotteria has made the word literally, descriptively accurate with what they […]

    Pepsi Christmas Cola Tastes Like Japanese Holiday Cake

    In North America, Coca-Cola is probably more associated with Christmas than Pepsi is, thanks to those iconic advertisements starring Santa Claus (there’s even a persistent but untrue urban legend that the modern visualization of Santa was invented by Coke’s advertising team way back in the day).
