Around the World: Quick - Fast Food Foie Gras Burger for $6.50!

The French are fancy! Apparently, even their fast food is fancy. French fast food burger chain Quick is, later this month, offering a very limited-time premium burger called the Supreme Foie Gras, the first fast food burger to be served with foie gras anywhere.

The Supreme Foie Gras burger features diced foie gras sourced from France, a 150g (a bit more than a quarter pound) grilled beef patty, caramelized onions, and arugula and will be served in a fancy-looking black paper clamshell.


News: Panera Bread - Holiday Seasonal Items 2010

Panera Bread has a pretty extensive line up of seasonal holiday items this year ranging from baked goods to chili:

New All Natural Steak Chili with Cornbread: "A hearty blend of slow-cooked tender brisket slices and ground beef with onions, green bell peppers, and kidney beans flavored with garlic, ancho chili powder, and red jalapenos in a rich tomato-based broth, topped with freshly baked sweet cornbread."


Review: Sonic - Ched 'R' Peppers

Sonic's Ched 'R' Peppers are Sonic's version of the jalapeno popper breaded and filled with melted Cheddar cheese. An order of four Ched 'R' Peppers sells for $2.99 and is served with a side of ranch dressing.

News: Pizza Hut - Big Mondays - Two Medium Pizzas for $6 Each

Looks like Pizza Hut is well on their way to having a different day for every day of the week. Starting today, Pizza hut introduces Big Monday, a Monday only deal where you can buy two Medium Pizzas with up to 3 Toppings for $6 each (i.e. $12 total).

If the deal looks familiar to you, Pizza Hut ran the same promotion for a period of 10 days earlier this month. Big Monday joins Tuscani Tuesday and Wing Wednesday as Pizza Hut's promo specific days.

The promo pricing represents a savings of $4 off normal Pizza Hut prices.

Review: Wendy's - Natural-Cut Fries with Sea Salt

Wendy's recently replaced their French Fries with a newer, fancier version dubbed the "Natural-Cut Fries with Sea Salt." New features of the fries include a skin-on cut which is more aesthetics than anything, a new blend of frying oil, and most significantly, the addition of sea salt.

Pricing remains the same and I bought an order of value-sized Natural-Cut Fries with Sea Salt (a rather unwieldy name but I guess it plays up the sea salt aspect) for 99 cents.

Review: Hostess - Ding Dongs

"Ding dong ding go the bells..." Okay, not really. Ding Dongs are the classic hockey puck shaped cake from Hostess that has adorned many a kids lunchbox. A box of 12 foil-wrapped chocolate cakes are regularly priced at about $4.49 but it's not unusual to see them on sale around $3.

Review: Pepperidge Farm - Holiday Homestyle Cookie Collection

Since it's officially the holiday shopping season now, I thought it'd be appropriate to review the Holiday Homestyle Cookie Collection from Pepperidge Farm which is only available this time of the year for about $8 or $9 regular price but about $5 or $6 on sale.

Review: Burger King - Rodeo Cheeseburger

Burger King's Rodeo Cheeseburger used to be available nationally, but is now only available in some regions as part of the BK Value menu. Similar but smaller than Carl's Jr's Western Cheeseburger, the Rodeo Cheeseburger takes your basic junior-sized cheeseburger and uses barbecue sauce (used to be Bull's-Eye but is now Sweet Baby Ray's) and onion rings instead of the normal pickles, ketchup, and mustard.

In my area, it costs $1.49.


Nov 24, 2010

Review: McDonald's - Holiday Pie

McDonald's Holiday Pie is a limited-time holiday item that is carried by some McDonald's restaurants around this time of year at the franchisee's election. McDonald's Holiday Pie comes in the same form at their other baked pies but is filled with custard surrounded by what appears to be a confetti-cake-like sugar cookie crust.

Like their normal pies, a Holiday Pie will only cost you 50 cents (2 for $1; individual pies prices vary from restaurant to restaurant).


Nov 23, 2010

Review: Pizza Hut - Cheesy Bites Pizza

Pizza Hut's Cheesy Bites Pizza recently made its limited-time return to the Pizza Hut menu and having never tried it before, I decided to remedy that oversight and purchased one large with pepperonis for $11.99 this time around.

The Cheesy Bite Pizza is an odd-looking pizza that takes the standard Pizza Hut Hand-Tossed Pizza and through some nifty folding and cutting, transforms the crust into 28 bite-sized, mozzarella-cheese-filled bread rolls and is served with two plastic cups of marinara sauce i.e. (pizza sauce) for dipping.

News: Quiznos - Black Friday $2.99 Combo

Apparently, retailers aren't the only ones trying to vie for your attention on this Black Friday. Quiznos is offering a $2.99 combo with any half/small sub, chips, and regular fountain drink.

The deal is only good Black Friday weekend only i.e. from Friday, 11/26/10 to Sunday, 11/28/10 and you'll need this coupon.

The deal excludes Toasty Torpedos and Toasty Bullets. And, if you live in Hawaii or Alaska, it's going to run you a dollar more.

News: Papa John's - New Double Bacon Six Cheese Pizza

Papa John's latest limited-time new pizza is the Double Bacon Six Cheese Pizza, topped with a six-cheese blend of Mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, Asiago, Provolone and Fontina plus both hickory-smoked bacon and Canadian bacon.

It arrives just in time for Thanksgiving Eve where many a household declines to cook since there is often plenty of cooking to be done the next day.

The Double Bacon Six Cheese Pizza is available at Papa John's through December 26, 2010 (i.e. the day after Christmas) and the price on a large is $11.

Now that I think about it, pizza bacon usually tastes better than the typical fast food bacon. I wonder why that it? Is it the bacon (I mean baking. As you can see I have bacon on the brain) process?

News: Subway - New Chipotle & Cheese Melts

Subway's latest promotion involves melted cheese, made-up words, and a couple of new subs: the Chipotle Steak & Cheese and the Chipotle Chicken & Cheese. For breakfast, there's the new Sunrise Breakfast Melt and Breakfast B.M.T.

In conjunction with the promotion, they are throwing around made-up words that play on the theme like "meltastic" and "meltalicious."


Review: Five Guys - Little Bacon Cheeseburger

Five Guys is a popular burger chain with East Coast origins that not-too-long ago finally landed in California. I finally tried one of their Little Bacon Cheeseburgers recently for $4.69.


Nov 21, 2010

News: Pizza Hut - Cheesy Bites Pizza Returns

It's back! The pizza with the crust of cheese-filled bite-sized rolls, the Cheesy Bites Pizza, is back for a limited time at Pizza Hut. It's like an appetizer and pizza all-in-one, though they really go crazy with it in some Asian countries.

The limited promotional pricing is $11.99 for a large, one-topping Cheesy Bite Pizza (shouldn't it be $12 to fit in with their current pricing?). You can check out a video of how one is made (by a ninja!) after the jump.


Review: Starbucks - Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

Starbucks' Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha is more dessert than drink and is made of espresso and steamed milk flavored with white chocolate and peppermint flavored syrups and then topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings.

The cost of admission is $3.75 for a Tall, $4.45 for a Grande, and $4.75 for a Venti.


Review: Starbucks - Egg Nog Latte

Starbucks' Egg Nog Latte features espresso with steamed eggnog and milk, topped with ground nutmeg. Pricing stands at $3.75 for a Tall, $4.25 for a Grande, and $4.75 for a Venti.


Nov 20, 2010

Review: Starbucks - Caramel Brulee Latte

Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte is a holiday seasonal drink that takes a base of espresso and steamed milk and adds a caramel brulee sauce finishing with whipped cream and caramel pieces. Like all of Starbucks' seasonal coffee-based drinks, pricing is $3.75 for a Tall, $4.45 for a Grande, and $4.75 for a Venti.


Review: Starbucks - Gingerbread Latte

Starbucks' holiday-themed seasonal Gingerbread Latte features steamed milk and espresso mixed with a gingerbread-flavored syrup and then topped with whipped cream and nutmeg. A 12-ounce Tall costs $3.75; a 16-ounce Grande is $4.45, and a 20-ounce Venti is $4.75.


Nov 19, 2010

Frozen Friday: Hormel - Compleats Chicken Breast & Gravy

Okay, not exactly frozen, but vacuum-sealed, Hormel's Compleats Chicken Breast & Gravy is basically like canned food, but in plastic so that you can stick it in the microwave for the indoorsman who shuns heating cans over a open fire.

For about $3.39, you get a 10-ounces meal that includes a piece of chicken breast, mashed potatoes, and gravy.

Review: Taco Bell - Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito

Taco Bell's limited-time Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito consists of marinated white meat chicken, enchilada sauce, a three cheese blend (cheddar, pepper jack, and mozzarella), enchilada rice and reduced fat sour cream wrapped in a flour tortilla and pressed to a crisp finish. They're priced at $3.29 each.


Nov 17, 2010

News: Jack in the Box - Bonus Jack Returns

Jack in the Box's Big Mac clone, the Bonus Jack is back on Jack's menu for a limited time. Apparently "the sauce is still secret" but also an almost neon bright orange rather than the muted cream orange usually associated with Thousand Island.

It replaces the Really Big Chicken Sandwich's spot in the $3.99 value-priced combo which comes with a small order of fries and a small fountain drink.

I've tried the Bonus Jack before and you can check out my thoughts in this review and the somewhat kinky commercial after the jump.


Review: Little Caesars - Crazy Bread

For as long as I've been to Little Caesars, they've always had Crazy Bread available for dirt cheap to accompany their "Pizza! Pizza!" Crazy Bread comes in an order of eight breadsticks (made from pizza dough as far as I can tell) topped with butter and garlic (or some reasonable facsimile thereof) and a dusting of Parmesan cheese.

There's always a deal for them when you buy a pizza. This time around the deal was two orders (16 breadsticks!) for $2(!).

News: Starbucks - Buy One, Get One Free Holiday Drinks - November 18-21, 2010

Starbucks is promoting their holiday drink lineup with a "buy one, get one free" offer later this week starting Thursday, November 18th from 2pm to 5pm and running until Sunday, November 21th.

Why: free holiday drink when buying a holiday drink of equal or lesser value; "holiday drinks" includes the Caramel Brulée Latte, Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Peppermint White Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Hot Chocolate.


Review: Carl's Jr. - Hand-Breaded Chicken Tenders

Carl's Jr's new Hand-Breaded Chicken Tenders are touted being made in house rather than the standard of frozen pre-cooked chicken strips most other chains carry. They're dipped in buttermilk and hand-breaded. Suggested retail price is $2.99 for three, but I paid $3.29 at my local Carl's.


Nov 15, 2010

News: Taco Bell - Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito Returns

Fans rejoice! The Grilled Stuft Chicken Enchilada Burrito has returned to the Taco Bell menu.

Last appearing in 2007, the burrito features marinated white meat chicken, enchilada sauce, a three cheese blend (cheddar, pepper jack, and mozzarella), enchilada rice and reduced fat sour cream wrapped in a flour tortilla and pressed to a crisp finish.

It sounds somewhat interesting, but what I really want Taco Bell to bring back is the Grilled Stuft Chicken Caesar Burrito which due to an ordering mishap (they gave me the wrong burrito...), I only got one delicious bite of (...yet they got my friend's order right).


News: Whataburger - 12 Days of Whataburger Free Food

Texas-based burger chain Whataburger is celebrating the holidays by offering 12 Days of Whataburger to customers who opt-in to their email list. Like the "true love" in the carol Twelve Days of Christmas, Whataburger will be giving (by email) 12 gifts (coupons) to subscribers.

The redemptions days are every odd day leading up to Christmas in December (i.e. 12/1, 12/3, 12,5, etc.). Coupons will be emailed prior to each redemption day for a free dine-in Whataburger food item ranging from burgers to sides to dessert.


If you live in the 10 states where Whataburger restaurants are located, you can sign up here. Well, you can sign up regardless, but let's face it, you're probably not going to make the drive to another state unless you really love Whataburger.

Review: Arby's - Philly Beef Toasted Sub

Arby's Philly Beef Toasted Sub is basically a French Dip without the dip, but with the addition of grilled diced onions, mayo, and red and green bell peppers. The price for one is $3.89 but there's often a two for $5 coupon floating about.

Around the World - Pizza Hut Hong Kong - Spanish Tapas Pizza

Pizza Hut dine-in has pretty much died out here in southern California; though I'm sure there much be one or two here or there. But, it seems to have flourished in Hong Kong though where the dine-in experience is more akin to fine dining than what you typically think of Pizza Hut.

The menu is also a lot more varied and fancier than you would expect from Pizza Hut as well. Check out the Spanish Tapas Pizza promo they ran earlier this year; you can see the plating and decor of Pizza Hut dine-in:

Review: Starbucks - Vanilla Via Instant Coffee

Starbucks Vanilla Via instant coffee is one of the four flavors of the Starbuck's brand instant coffee recently brought to market. The other three flavors are Mocha, Caramel, and Cinnamon. Pricing is currently a promotional $5.95 for 6 one-serving packets. The normal price is $6.95.

It carries a pricey retail of about $9.99 for a little more than a pound of food (1 pound and 6 ounces to be exact) though is occasionally on sale for around $7.99.


Nov 11, 2010

News: Pizza Hut - Two Medium Pizzas for $6 Each

Pizza Hut's latest promotion is two medium pizzas, with up to 3 toppings, for $6 each (i.e. $12 total). The deal ends on Saturday, November 20th.

It's comparable to Domino's two medium, 2-topping pizzas for $5.99 each except you can get one more topping if you so choose.

Medium pizzas at Pizza Hut are normally $8 (with up to three toppings) under their new pricing structure.

News: Popeyes - Cajun Style Turkeys are Back

Popeyes Cajun Style Turkeys are back for those of you planning to order one to go with your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

Popeyes Cajun Style Turkeys weigh approximately 9 to 11 pounds and are seasoned with their blend of Louisiana seasonings and then flash-fried for a crispy coating. The turkey is then roasted so that it is crispy outside and juicy within. They carry a suggested retail price of $39.99.

They're only available once a year at participating restaurants through December, or until supplies last. You can check which Popeyes locations are carrying them online.

I've always been curious about these things which are up there with those BBQ joints that will smoke a whole turkey for you. It's just a bit pricey compared to buying and roasting your own turkey but maybe someday...

Review: Taco Bell - Crunchwrap Supreme

Taco Bell's Crunchwrap Supreme is like a uniquely Taco Bell cross between a Tostada and a Burrito Supreme. Specially, it consists of a grilled flour tortilla folded into a hexagon filled with seasoned ground beef, a tostada shell, nacho cheese sauce, reduced fat sour cream, diced tomatoes, and shredded lettuce. Buying one will cost you $2.39.


Nov 10, 2010

News: Wendy's - New Natural-Cut Sea Salt Fries

In a bit of a reversal of Jack in the Box's fry change, but in keeping with their own premium theme, Wendy's is replacing their current fries with new Natural-Cut Sea Salt Fries. Pricing will remain the same as their current fries and the roll out begins tomorrow, November 11th.

The new fries are cut skin-on from Russet potatoes and seasoned with sea salt which tends to cost a little more than regular table salt. They are cooked in a new oil formulation which is purported to contain no allergens and 0 grams of trans fat per serving.

The new fries are touted as "hotter, crispier, and tastier" and were tested in three U.S. cities before the decision to launch them nationwide.


Review: Sonic - Chili Cheese Tots

I think Sonic is the only place I know of that offers Chili Cheese Tots which is like Chili Cheese Fries but with Tots instead of French fries. Pricing is $2.19 for a small, $2.59 for a medium, and $3.29 for a large. In addition to chili and cheese, you can ask for onions as well for added flavor and crunch.

News: Wendy's Testing Dave's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger

In what looks like Wendy's answer to McDonald's Angus Third Pounders and Burger King's Steakhouse XT premium burgers, Wendy's is testing their new Dave's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger in Las Vegas for a potential national roll out according to the Las Vegas Sun. Dave's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger's main selling points are: a thicker, juicier beef patty, new premium toppings (red onions, crinkle-cut pickles, and thicker cut tomatoes), and a buttered, toasted bun.

And who should be pushing the burger but Wendy herself, the actual person (who has never before appeared in a Wendy's commercial) and not an actress playing the chain's mascot:


Update 8/09/2011 - According to NRN, Dave's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger national ad campaign to launch October 3.

News: McDonald's Jalapeno Cheddar and Cheddar Onion McChicken in San Diego

McDonald’s is offering two new variations of the McChicken sandwich in the San Diego area: the Jalapeño Cheddar and the Cheddar Onion. It's unclear if these are merely regional items or a test for possible expansion. It might portend more McChicken versions to come.

The Jalapeño Cheddar McChicken tops the McChicken patty with spicy jalapeño peppers and white cheddar cheese while the new Cheddar Onion McChicken is made with caramelized onions and white cheddar cheese. Pricing on the new sandwiches is $1.49 each.

In a bit of mobile marketing, San Diego McDonald’s is offering a text message coupon for the new McChicken sandwiches. Customers can text ‘YUMMY’ to 44144 to receive a coupon for one free Jalapeño Cheddar or Cheddar Onion McChicken with any purchase sent directly to their mobile phone. To redeem the coupon, customers simply show the text message coupon on their phone to their McDonald's order-taker.

Review: Little Caesars - Hot-N-Ready Pepperoni Pizza

It's hard to believe but in the early '90s, Little Caesars was the #2 pizza chain in the nation. I ate it quite a bit of their pizzas growing up since you could always count on getting two pizzas for the price of one. Nowadays, they're a distant fourth in the pizza race and have a new gimmick that seems to work well for them: the Hot-N-Ready Pizza for $5.

News: Jack in the Box - Free Tacos on Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Jack in the Box is giving away two Free Tacos per customer on Tuesday, November 16, 2010, but only after 2pm (you know, in case you were planning to get two before work and then two after your nightly commute).

The giveaways is supported by a commercial featuring the titular CEO, a visit to the dentist, and an apparent laughing gas induced delirium:


News: Sonic - 2010 Seasonal Holiday Drinks

Available for a limited time at Sonic this winter are two holiday-themed drinks: the Holiday Spiced Hot Chocolate and Holiday Spiced Sugar Cookie Blast. The "Holiday" prefix is to make sure you know they're holiday beverages.

The Holiday Spiced Hot Chocolate features hot chocolate with holiday-spiced caramel and topped with whipped topping.

And the Holiday Spiced Blast is made with spiced caramel-flavored ice cream, sugar cookies pieces, and whipped topping.


Sonic Tailgate Blanket and Gift Card Winners

It looks like pumpkin is, by far, the favored flavor for the fall/winter season (i.e. the holidays), other items that got mentioned a fair bit were peppermint and egg nog, but on to the winners.

I just pulled the numbers from the proverbial hat (via Random.org) and the runner up winner is... *drum roll* Adam who wins a $25 Sonic gift card and a tailgate blanket.

The grand prize of a $100 Sonic gift card and a tailgate blanket goes to Elaine Hearn.

Congrats to you both! I will send you an email shortly to get your mailing addresses.

Review: Burger King - Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich

The other half to the Tendergrill, Burger King's Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich features a deep-fried breaded chicken breast filet served with the standard lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo sandwiched into a corn-dusted bun. It is priced in the premium sandwich range for $4.19.


News: McDonald's - Holiday Pie this Winter 2010!

Depending on your local McDonald's franchisee, your local McDonald's may or may not have Holiday Pie on the menu this holiday season starting on November 18th until December 31st.

So what is a McDonald's Holiday Pie? It is a custard-filled baked turnover with what appears to be a confetti cake crust covered with a sugary white icing. I wouldn't say it makes me think of Christmas or the holidays though; maybe a kid's birthday, but no, not the holidays.

If you're so inclined to try one, I suggest calling ahead first as not all McDonald's will stock them; it's up to each franchisee's election.

If you're in the Los Angeles area, I have two confirmed locations for you:

5310 W. Rosecrans Ave.
Hawthorne CA 90250

1203 Artesia Blvd.
Manhattan Beach CA 90266

News: Domino's - Play "Behind the Pizza" for Free $5 Gift Card

Domino's is working to inform customers about where their ingredients supply chain with a new edutainment game dubbed "Behind the Pizza" at more.dominos.com/behindthepizza. To encourage users to play, Domino's is offering incentives at several point tiers for various stages of completion of the game (in a game-show-like manner where you give up your prize for a better prize at the next tier).

At 1 point, users can get a coupon for free Cinna Stix with their next order.

At 50 points is a coupon for free Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes with your next order.

At 100 points is a buy one, get one free large pizza.

Finally, at the end of it all, you can play a pizza-making game for a $5 Domino's gift card. Update: There seems to be great difficulty in either a) getting a gift card or b) getting a gift card that works. Looks like they didn't quite test the fulfillment aspect of the promotion too well. This looks like it might be a black mark against Domino's if Facebook is any indication. Domino's has taken the game down, saying they've run out of prizes and that it'll be back.

Completion of the entire game probably takes about 20 minutes by my rough guess. There's no "game over," so the prizes are pretty much a given as long as you work your way through.

News: The Coffee Bean - $1 Holiday Drinks on November 9th

The Coffee Bean usually does a freebie day on their limited-time drinks once per season, but since it is the season for giving, this holiday season, it'll cost you a $1 to get a 12-ounce holiday drink on Tuesday, November 9th, 2010, 4 to 7pm.

So where's the giving part? The dollar you pay will go to The Help Group, a nonprofit benefiting children with special needs.

Where: Participating The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations in AZ and CA.
When: Tuesday, November 9th, 2010, 4 to 7pm.
Why: Proceeds go to children with special needs. For $1, you get your choice of a 12-ounce Red Velvet Hot Cocoa or Ice-Blended (isn't that just hot cocoa with red food coloring?!), Winter Dream Tea Latte, or Gingerbread Cookie Latte.

Review: Seattle's Best Canned Iced Latte

Seattle's Best Canned Iced Coffee comes in a tall, thin 9.5-ounce can (like Red Bull) and features a blend of milk, coffee, and sugar. The suggested retail price is $1.49 for a single can and $4.99 for a four-pack (though will probably go up with the way coffee prices are).


Around the World - KFC Asia - Flava Roast Chicken

Frozen Friday: Hungry-Man - Boneless Pork Ribs

The McRib isn't the only boneless pork patty shaped like a mini rack of ribs, Hungry-Man's Boneless Pork Ribs feature two similar patties with barbecue sauce, home-style mashed potatoes, sweet corn, and a chocolate brownie. Hungry-Man dinners are usually priced at $3.69, but often go on sale for less than $2. Plus, right now you can print out a $2 off coupon on Facebook and basically get a free Hungry-Man.
