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

    Last week I told you about Krispy Kreme’s observance of National Doughnut Day.

    ShackMeister: Shake Shack Introduces Fried Shallot Burger

    Shake Shack is a legendary hamburger chain whose notoriety reaches far beyond its relatively limited marketplace. And part of the reason for that notoriety is their innovative and delicious cheeseburgers, such as the newly introduced ShackMeister cheeseburger, featuring fried shallots as well as (naturally) the chain’s signature ShackSauce.
