Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich and features a spicy, crispy filet, topped with lettuce, tomato, and their mayo-onion sauce on a sesame seed bun for $3.69 (compared to Wendy's $3.99).

The Flame-Grilled Corn features sweet fire-roasted corn off the cob seasoned with chipotle en adobo and a squeeze of lime.
The Sweet Corn Cake is a sweet melt-in-your-mouth corn cake with bits of corn baked in.
And the Sweet Potato Fries are lightly coated and prepared from seasonally harvested sweet potatoes.
The price is $1.79 for a small side and $3.99 for a large.

Pizza Hut's latest limited-time menu offering, the Ultimate Stuffed Crust Pizza adds meat to the normal cheese stuffed crust recipe resulting in an almost calzone-like crust.
There are two choices as far as which meats are in the crust: the Meaty Recipe comes with pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, and cheese; and the Pepperoni Recipe keeps it simple with just pepperoni and cheese.
The price on either version of the new Ultimate Stuffed Crust Pizza is $12.99 with up to three toppings.
Burger King has replaced its former crown-shaped Chicken Tenders with new nugget-shaped Chicken Tenders. In addition to the new, more normal shape, the new Chicken Tenders also sport new seasoning. They're still mechanically separated white meat though.
To push the new
The new Chicken Tenders are available in orders of four, eight, and twenty with respective prices of $1, $1.99, and $4.99. Available dipping sauces are buffalo, barbecue, zesty, sweet and sour, honey mustard or ranch.
Quiznos gets a bit gimmicky with their newest limited-time menu offering, the Chicken Bacon Dipper which features a sub made with toasted Chipotle Jack bread, slices of hot chicken, bacon, and a mild chipotle mayo. For the "dipper" portion, the sub is served with a side of cheese sauce seasoned with tomatoes, diced green chiles and traditional Mexican spices.
Retail price on a small sub is $5.19.
To entice you to try this new sandwich, Quiznos has an online coupon good for any small sub for $2.99 (expires 4/04/2011).

They're ridiculous cheap and retail for $1.59 for a 16.2-ounce box of twelve pies. They go on sale for about a buck or so.

Häagen-Dazs is offering an emailed coupon for a free Midnight Dazzler frozen dessert for signing up for their email list, the Ice Cream Social, via Facebook. It's a limited offer and registration has to be confirmed by March 31, 2011 to receive your free ice cream.
A Midnight Dazzler combines Häagen-Dazs Midnight Cookies and Cream ice cream with layers of hot fudge and cookie pieces so it's basically a sundae of sorts. I think their sundaes usually go upwards of $5 so it's a pretty good deal.

Carl’s Jr. and sister chain Hardee’s has added a new line of Charbroiled Turkey Burgers to their respective menus (or rather they're adding a turkey patty option to some of their existing burgers.
To promote the new Turkey Burgers, they're airing a commercial featuring Gizem Memic, the reigning Miss Turkey from the Miss Universe pageant (you can check it out after the jump).
The new Turkey Burger were created in collaboration the creators of Eat This, Not That! which often features the chains' burgers on the "Not That!" list. Each of the new burgers feature a quarter-pound turkey patty and clock in at least than 500 calories and are meant as a healthier alternative to beef.

Popeyes' popular, one-day Pay Day promotion is coming back this Wednesday, March 23, 2011. On that day, customers can pick up eight mixed pieces of Popeyes fried chicken for $4.99 at participating locations.
For an additional $5.00, you can add a large side and four biscuits to get a complete meal.
These promotions have been pretty popular at Popeyes in the past with even some locations running out of chicken! I prefer to just get two pieces of dark meat chicken at two for 99 cents on Tuesdays and Thursdays though.

They're normally $1.50 each.

It's available hot or iced and since the weather has been warming up a bit lately, I picked up an iced 12-ounce Tall recently for $3.55 (compared to about $2.65 for a regular Tall Cappuccino).

More Lent. More Seafood. In what has become a yearly event, Popeyes has brought back their limited-time Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box for $4.99 once again.
The Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box consists of eight deep-fried marinated Butterfly Shrimp, a side of Cajun Fries, and a Biscuit.
In celebration of their 40th, Starbucks is celebrating with a new, limited-time Tribute Blend (as in a tribute to their loyal following) that will also be available in Via Ready Brew form which is listed on their online store at $10.95 for 12 single-serve packets.
Starbucks Tribute Blend is a blend of four different coffee beans: semi-washed and aged Aged Sumatra coffee, naturally-processed Sun-dried Ethiopian coffee, and washed coffees from Papua New Guinea and Colombia.
The stated flavor profile is "a spicy, full-bodied blend with dark cherry notes."
Considering how fast their Christmas Blend Via sold out, if Via is your thing, I recommend you get some while you can.
For a limited-time Qdoba is offering new Mini Street Tacos which feature three small, soft corn tortillas filled with your choice of slow-roasted pulled pork or seasoned shredded beef topped with diced red onions and fresh chopped cilantro.
Curiously, there's no chicken or, taking into account the time of year, fish option.
A full order comes with a side of Ancho Chile BBQ beans and costs $4.99.
one of four new hot dogs that they just added to their menu. Each new hot dog is available for the introductory price of $1.99. The Chicago Dog comes with a pickle spear, relish, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt and mustard all served on warm poppy seed bun.

Starbucks newest, limited-time drink, the Cocoa Cappuccino is basically a cappuccino with a bittersweet mocha sauce.
Specifically it is a shot or two of espresso (depending on what size drink you buy), bittersweet mocha sauce (which should be less sweet than their normal mocha sauce), steamed milk, and a dollop of milk foam to finish.
Basically, it should be taste more coffee-like and less sweet than a typical Starbucks Mocha.
Frito Lay has added flavor to what I typically think of as their traditional, unflavored (save for salt) brand: Tostitos. It's not unprecedented (they have a Hint of Lime flavor as well as an Artisan flavored line) but it's an interesting choice considering that they already have lots of different brands of flavored chips but there you go.
Of course, they're not going with full blown Doritos-style flavor but are sticking with just a hint of flavor with new Hint of Pepper Jack and Hint of Jalapeño Tostitos chips.
Pricing will vary but you should be able to nab yourself a 13-ounce bag for around $2.50, or less if it's on sale.
For a limited-time, Burger King is offering the new BK Single Stacker for $1. The BK Single Stacker is a single-patty version of their current Stacker burgers. You can also double up or triple up on with extra patties and cheese with the BK Double Stacker for $2 or the BK Triple Stacker for $3.
I seem to remember they offered a similar promotion when they first introduced the BK Stackers a while back. Apparently, the BK Single Stacker is replacing the Buck Double on BK's menu.
Each BK Stacker features a simple formula of cheese, beef, bacon, and BK Stacker sauce with varying amounts of cheese and beef depending on whether you get a Single, Double, or Triple.
Available only on Sundays and only for a limited-time, the Sunday Bucket features ten mixed pieces (i.e. white and dark meat) of any recipe (Original, Extra Crispy, or Grilled) for $10.
Update 10/14/13 - KFC is rehashing the limited-time deal this year and expanding it to cover Saturdays as well as Sundays (details here).
four new premium beef hot dogs at Sonic and features an all-beef normal-sized hot dog nestled in a soft bun and topped with sauerkraut, spicy brown mustard, and grilled diced onions.
It's available now for an introductory price of $1.99.

Frito Lay has a new flavor of Sun Chips: Jalapeno Jack. The new chip is made with all-natural ingredients combines the flavor of Monterey Jack cheese with Jalapeño peppers through the magic of powder.
A 10.5-ounce bag retails for $3.79 (may vary) and you can locate a bag through Frito Lay's Snack Finder.
Frito Lay has also managed a breakthrough with a much quieter version of their compost-able bag (Yay Earth!). You can check out the video with a somewhat technical explanation of how they manage to achieve this feat after the jump.
While the suggested retail is $2.49 and $2.89 for small and large cups respectively, in my neck of the woods, pricing is a bit higher at $3.09 for a 14-ounce small and $3.49 for a 20-ounce large.

Mark your calendars, it's that time of the year again... Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's!
When: April 12, 2011, 12 to 8pm
Where: At participating locations. You can check at their store locator which locations are participating: http://www.benjerry.com/scoop-shops/scoop-shop-locator/index.cfm
Why: Because it's free! And you can stand in line as many times as you like so you can theoretically try all their flavors... then again you could try all their flavors by asking for a free sample spoon of each. Or combine them all together to make a Frankenstein's ice cream monster.
You wait may vary depending on your location. I've seen plenty of pictures of some really long lines for this event. People really like their free Ben & Jerry's. But then again, they do plan pretty well with extra employees to keep the line moving.

Free FryDay to get my free medium fry on by ordering a Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup. New Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup is the same ketchup but in a different, more versatile and more bountiful package.

For a limited time, Der Wienerschnitzel is sporting new Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs on their menu. You can choose from a straight-up Bacon Wrapped Dog or get a little fancier with the Street Dog which adds grilled onions, mustard, mayo, and ketchup.
Price is $1.79 for a Bacon Wrapped and $1.99 for a Street Dog.
Nutritional info not available.
Boston Market's latest menu edition is really just a large sandwich version of their BBQ Market Sliders. The new Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwich is similar to the traditional pulled pork sandwich except with pulled rotisserie chicken pieces and, inexplicably with Cheddar cheese on a long bakery roll.
I think a slaw rather than cheese would have been a better choice and I don't even like slaw. I'm not feeling the flavor profile of barbecue with cheese.

Chick-fil-A isn't the only one bringing the banana flavor this month, Krispy Kreme has two new, limited-time banana donuts this month: the Banana Kreme Pie donut and the Banana Caramel Cake donut.
The Banana Kreme Pie donut is piped with banana Kreme filling, then dipped in white icing and sprinkled with NILLA wafer pieces.
The Banana Caramel Cake donut is made with real bananas, glazed and then drizzled with a caramel icing.
It's seafood season once again (i.e. Lent is coming up) which at Taco Bell means the return of the Pacific Shrimp Taco as well as a new Pacific Shrimp Burrito. They are priced at $2.79 and $3.69 respectively (may vary) .
