And you best bloody bring the gentleman!

 

Eh I'm not big on pulled pork.

 

Sacrilege!

 

If I knew that I was going to have a last meal, I'd ask for brisket tacos from this little restaurant nearby, with a pitcher of margaritas. And queso. Damn, I'm hungry.

 

Is there a last meal thread anywhere? Too lazy/hungover to search for one.

Ever wanted to eat potato skins, buffalo wings or nachos stuffed inside a low-cost, burrito-like wrap? (It's every drunken American's dream.)

 

Taco Bell is helping make that desire a reality with its new 99-cent Loaded Griller wraps, which are rolling out nationwide on Thursday. The LTO snack wraps come in three varieties: Loaded Potato, Buffalo Chicken and Beefy Nacho.

 

Also hitting the market on Thursday is the new variety Taco 12 Pack that contains six Doritos Locos Tacos and six Crunchy Tacos, priced at $12.99.

^^I almost went for those today, but opted for my usual crunchwrap and steak soft tacos instead.

 

Also, the McRib has been back for a month or so. Anyone else partaking of the mcgoodness? I think I've had five so far.

Looking to take on Denny’s, McDonald’s and every other kid on the late-night block, Steak ’n Shake has launched an audacious new AllNighter Menu available between midnight and 6 a.m. while also making its full breakfast menu available now from midnight to 11 a.m. (at participating locations, of course).

 

The attention grabber on the AllNighter Menu is the 7×7 Steakburger, a $7.77 tower of seven Steakburger patties alternating with seven slices of American cheese. While Steak ’n Shake’s menu calls the burger “The Ultimate Challenge,” nutritionists are likely to call it something different. The 7X7 weighs in at 1,330 calories (880 from meat), nearly double the 770 calories in Steak ’n Shake’s next highest burger, the Grilled Portobello ‘n Swiss Steakburger.

 

The 7×7 Steakburger also packs 98 grams of fat, 290 mg of cholesterol, 34 grams of carbohydrates and 4,490 mg of sodium. Over-the-top, stacked burgers are fairly common features at independent burger joints and smaller chains: BurgerBusiness.com recently broke the story about the nine-patty Triple Triple Burger joining the Jake’s Wayback Burgers menu on March 1. But major burger chains generally have avoided promoting more than triple-decker burgers.

 

Steak ’n Shake goes small as well as big on the AllNighter Menu. Specialty Shooter mini burgers are available in All American, Jalapeňo Crunch, Guacamole or Gorilla (grilled in mustard and topped with American cheese). The minis are priced (with fries) at $1.49 each or $4.99 for three. Other items are Buffalo or BBQ Chicken Fingers ($5.99); Nacho Fries ($4.99); Chili or Bacon Cheese Fries ($4.79).

 

Also on the late-night menu is an item that simultaneously appears on the breakfast menu: The $5.99 Steakburger Slinger Skillet has hash browns topped with Steak ’n Shake’s chili, two Steakburger patties, shredded cheese and two eggs. Need more? It comes with choice of buttermilk biscuit, toast or bagel.

 

The breakfast menu also has other $5.99 skillet dishes (Country Skillet, California Skillet, Portobello ‘n Sausage Skillet) that Steak ‘n Shake has added in the past year plus the recently added 99¢ Breakfast Tacos.

McDonald's serves dead mouse to customer

 

FD4774937E25C3FF22862BC50AB85D0C_787_442.jpg

 

FREDRICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK

 

Ron Morais says he picked up the coffee from McDonald's on his way into work on Monday and found a dead mouse inside.

 

"I always take the lid off to get my last sip of coffee. And when I took the lid off there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse," Morais said.

 

...

 

He says there were mouse droppings along with his furry find. He called the McDonald's customer service line. They have yet to connect with him.

Pizza Hut is rebooting itself for a new generation of pizza eaters.

 

Following two years of disappointing sales as consumers sought even more exotic flavors and personalized options, the world's largest pizza chain on Monday will announce plans to turn upside down almost every facet of its identity.

 

Pizza Hut will focus on dozens of new flavor options as it mounts the 56-year-old brand's biggest-ever redo. It will add 11 new pizza recipes, 10 new crust flavors, six new sauces, five new toppings, four new flavor-pack drizzles, a new logo, new uniforms and, yes, even a new pizza box.

 

For those keeping count, the chain is more than doubling its available ingredients at all 6,300 U.S. locations beginning Nov. 19.

 

"This is the biggest change we've ever made," Carrie Walsh, chief marketing officer, says in a telephone interview. "We're redefining the category."

 

The ongoing tailspin -- eight consecutive quarters of same-store sales declines -- recently resulted in a management reshuffle. David Gibbs, who has been U.S president, was named CEO last week. He was not available for this story.

 

Even the chain's sister brands at Yum Brands — Taco Bell and KFC — generally have been growing, but Pizza Hut seems to have hit a wall. Will these changes be enough to heal an ailing brand? Or, perhaps, are they too many, too late?

 

"Pizza Hut may be doing too much too quickly," says Darren Tristano, executive vice president at Technomic, the restaurant industry research specialist. "It would appear that the brand that has lost touch with the consumer is trying to change too much overnight." He suggests a more gradual approach because, among other things, all of these changes could particularly confuse the chain's traditional customers.

 

Not so, says Walsh. Pizza Hut researched "hundreds" of ingredients, she says. "These are the ones customers told us they want."

 

It's not the first time a major pizza chain tried to quickly reinvent itself. Back in 2009, Domino's, which had taken plenty of public grief for the taste of its pizza, changed everything in the recipe of its core pizza. New sauce. New crust. New cheese. It turned out to be a hit.

 

In this case, however, Pizza Hut is not changing its core recipe. Instead, it's adding many, many more choices.

 

How many? Who's counting. But consider this: There will now be about 1,000 ways to customize something as basic as a pepperoni pizza at Pizza Hut, says Walsh.

 

Among Pizza Hut's new offerings, it's going from:

 

• One crust choice to 10, including salted pretzel and honey sriracha.

 

• One sauce choice to six, including garlic Parmesan and Buffalo.

 

• Zero "premium" toppings to five, including sliced banana peppers and Peruvian cherry peppers.

 

• Zero "drizzles" to five, which are basically sauces like Buffalo and balsamic that are lightly drizzled on the top of the pizza after it's baked.

 

• Six special recipes to 22, including 7-Alarm Fire (loaded with peppers and jalapeno) to Giddy-Up Barbecue Chicken (with chicken and bacon and barbecue sauce.)

 

It also will nationally roll-out a so-called Skinny Slice pizza line -- with five offerings at about 250 calories per slice.

 

To announce the change, the chain will launch its largest-ever advertising campaign dubbed "The Flavor of Now," says Walsh, though she declines to provide details. There's even a possibility that the chain, which hasn't advertised during a Super Bowl in 15 years, is considering such a move for the upcoming big game on Feb. 1.

 

"We're looking," says Walsh. "This change deserves a big statement."

Burger King wants McDonald's to collaborate on the 'McWhopper'

 

screen-shot-2015-08-26-at-8-08-35-am.png?w=688&h=485&crop=1

 

All in the name of world peace.

 

Burger King has offered McDonald’s a golden opportunity to come together and make one burger to rule them all — in the name of world peace, of course.

 

In full-page ads running Wednesday in The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune – the hometown paper of the Illinois-based McDonald’s – the fast-food chain is proposing the “McWhopper,” a hybrid of each company’s signature Big Mac and Whopper burgers that will be sold for one day in one pop-up store in one city.

 

That city, Burger King is proposing, would be Atlanta, a meeting point between both company’s headquarters. The marketing stunt would be held on Sept. 21, with proceeds benefiting the anti-conflict nonprofit Peace One Day.

 

Burger King has also set up a website listing out its proposal, even suggesting a recipe for the new hybrid burger: it will contain six ingredients from the Big Mac (like cheese and special sauce) and six from the Whopper (like the flame-grilled patty and onions).

 

Dear Burger King,

 

Inspiration for a good cause… great idea.

We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.

We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?

And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.

We’ll be in touch.

 

-Steve, McDonald’s CEO

P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.
