News: McDonald's Testing Fish McBites

McDonald's is testing a fish version of their Chicken McBites: Fish McBites out in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and a couple of other market according to the Huffington Post.

Fish McBites feature breaded, bite-sized pieces of Alaskan Pollock and come with tartar sauce for dipping.

As to how they look and taste? One critic from the Dallas Observer (who happens to be a fan of the Filet-O-Fish) did not have such great things to say. Among his comment were this statement: "...I can say with a large degree of confidence that Fish McBites are the worst things McDonald's has created in some time."

News: Papa Murphy's - New Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Papa Murphy's Take N' Bake Pizza's latest creation, the Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza, is a fairly novel innovation that sits somewhere between a burger and a pizza.

The pizza starts off ordinarily enough with Original Crust but then instead of pizza sauce there's Burger Sauce--a blend of mustard and ketchup. Going from there the pizza is topped with mozzarella cheese, ground beef, bacon, onions, and Roma tomatoes before being finished with a layer of dill pickle chips and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese.

News: KFC - $3.99 Pot Pie for a Limited Time.

The Chunky Chicken Pot Pie is an often overlooked menu item at KFC; it looks like KFC is looking to remedy that by offering it for a limited-time promotion price of $3.99.

The pies normally sell around the $5 to $6 mark depending on location.

Each Pot Pie contains a filling of KFC chicken, green peas, carrots, potatoes, in a home-style sauce covered with a light, flaky crust.

Since it only comes once every four years, Subway is celebrating the extra day in February (that's the 29th in case you miss it...) by offering a free cookie with any purchase.

While it's nothing to go running to your local Subway about, it's still a nice treat and added bonus if you happen to catching the tail end of the "FebruANY" $5 Footlong promotion.

Remember the offer is only good tomorrow, Wednesday, February 29.

Sonic Drive-In is known for their potato tots and with sweet potato fries fast becoming a popular alternative to regular fries, Sonic is now out with Sweet Potato Tots!

News: McDonald's Testing Jalapeno Salsa Breakfast Sandwiches

Looks like McDonald's is testing Jalapeno Salsa Breakfast Sandwiches out in the Houston area.

Available in both biscuit and McMuffin form, the sandwiches appear to use the same salsa last seen on the Jalapeno Cheddar McChicken. Besides the salsa, the sandwiches comes with bacon or sausage, eggs, and white Cheddar for about $2.79.

If you live around Houston, it looks like at least a few of the local McDonald's restaurants are running foursquare promotions involving the sandwiches for checking in.

You can check out the promo page for the sandwiches on McDonald's website here and a local television spot for the Jalapeno Salsa Breakfast Sandwiches after the jump.

Review: Delta Airlines - Biscoff Cookies

I learned while flying on Delta Airlines that, in additional to the standard peanuts and pretzels, Biscoff Cookies were offered as complimentary snacks (I also learned while flying United on the same trip, that they no longer offer complimentary snacks, at least not on domestic flights.).

News: Jack in the Box - New 2 for $3.50 Breakfast Melts

Jack in the Box has new Breakfast Melts at a promotional price of 2 for $3.50 for a limited time.

They're pretty much the basic breakfast sandwich (breakfast meat, egg, and cheese) but on grilled sourdough instead of a biscuit, croissant or English muffin.

The meat choices here are ham or bacon. Jack's eggs come fried and not scrambled; they're similar to McDonald's eggs on the Egg McMuffin. Breakfast Melts actually come with two slices of cheese: one American and one Swiss style.


News: Carl's Jr./Hardee's - New Southwest Patty Melt

Carl's Jr. and sister chain Hardee's latest burger is probably better known for its racy commercial featuring Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2012 cover girl, Kate Upton, then for the actual burger but, here it is: the new Southwest Patty Melt.

The burger features a spicy affair with a charbroiled beef patty (single, double, or almost a half pound of Black Angus beef) with sliced jalapeƱos, grilled onions, Pepper Jack cheese, and a spicy Santa Fe sauce sandwiched by grilled sourdough bread.

News: Ben & Jerry's - New Greek Frozen Yogurt

Ben & Jerry's is out with a new line of Greek Frozen Yogurts in four flavors: Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Banana Peanut Butter, and Blueberry Vanilla Graham.

Greek yogurt has gotten pretty popular lately, it costs more than regular yogurt and the taste takes some getting used to, but its popularity stems from its richer texture, greater amounts of protein, and lesser amounts of carbs and sugar over the regular stuff.

Frozen Friday: T.G.I.Friday's - Sizzling Steak Fajitas

T.G.I.Friday's Sizzling Steak Fajitas frozen meal, similar to their Sizzling Chicken Fajitas (but with steak obviously), features seared beef steak, seasoned strips of bell peppers and onions with a side of cheesy rice and three mini flour tortillas.

The price is around the high end for frozen meals at around $4.29 which means you're looking at the $2 to $3 range on sale.


Neat: Starbucks Store Made of Used Shipping Containers

Out in Tukwila, Washington, Starbucks has one of their most interesting locations/experiments: a Starbucks store made completely out of four shipping containers (the huge ones you see on cargo boats at the docks or on TV in the crime dramas for weapons storage or human trafficking).

Calling it the Reclamation Drive-Thru, the store contains 450 feet of floor space for the making of lattes and Frappuccinos and the like and offers drive-thru and walk-up service. Seating is outdoor only.


News: Wienerschnitzel - "UnDer the Sea" Trio Returns

Hot dogs and fish? Okay, more like hot dogs or fish. Der Wienerschnitzel returns their "UnDer the Sea" Trio for a limited time (read: Lenten season).

Besides the normal Fish and Chips, the trio also includes the Sea Dog and the Fish Wrap.

The Sea Dog is basically a hot dog but with a battered and fried fish filet instead of a hot dog wiener and lettuce and tartar sauce for condiments.

The Fish Wrap is the same deal but wrapped in a tortilla rather than a hot dog bun and the tartar sauce is replaced by a creamy salsa.

All three items are available at participating Wienerschnitzel locations for a limited-time.

News: Kraft - New Milk Bite Milk and Granola Bars

The folks at Kraft have done something kooky with your common granola bar: they've added real milk to them with their new Milk Bite Milk and Granola Bars. It's the taste of granola plus the calcium equivalent of a cup (8-ounces) of milk.

You won't find them in the snack aisle with the other granola bars though, Milk Bites are in the refrigerated dairy section. And yes, this means that you have to put them in your fridge when you get them home.

Milk Bites come in five different varieties: Chocolate, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin and Mixed Berry. Each bar provides 30% of the daily recommended value of calcium and do not contain any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

Review: Carl's Jr. - Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

The Carl's Jr. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit features their new Made From Scratch biscuits and replaces the Sunrise Croissant at the Carl's Jr. locations that carry them.

News: The Coffee Bean - $1 Wild Cherry Tea or Tea Latte on February 28

The Coffee Bean is hosting an "Open House" on Tuesday, February 28th from 2 to 5pm featuring your choice of one of two $1 12 oz drinks: a Wild Cherry Tea Latte (hot or iced) or a Wild Cherry Fru-Tea.

The timing is a bit odd on this one. In the past they're normally had these events from 4 to 7pm which is more convenient for people coming home from work or school. 2 to 5pm is a bit of a dead spot in the day but maybe that's the point.

The fine print: "Check your local store for closing times. Offer valid only at participating locations. Not valid at Ralphs, airport or Hawaii locations. Valid on February 28th from 2-5pm ONLY."

Feb 21, 2012

Review: Arby's - Jamocha Cream Pie

Feature: Krispy Kreme Coffee Tasting and Pairings

On the morning of second and last day of Krispy Kreme's Blogger Summit, they invited us to try their new Signature Coffee Blends (introduced last year) along with suggested donut pairings.

I'd never done a coffee tasting or "cupping" before, so I was pretty intrigued. There are three varieties of Krispy Kreme coffee blends: the House Blend, the Dark Roast, and the House Decaf.

Feature: 5 Fun Facts About Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Taco

For those of you who don't know, I was invited out to Taco Bell Headquarters (known as "RSC" for "Restaurant Support Center") earlier this week to hear about the new Doritos Locos Taco, get a tour, and check out the Taco Bell Test kitchen.

Along with details on the launch of the taco, I put together a list of 5 fun facts regarding the Doritos Locos Taco gleaned from the event:

1. Originally, the idea was to just sprinkle some Doritos seasoning on a Taco Bell taco. Fortunately, the initial tested observed that it was like they took a taco and sprinkled some Doritos seasoning on it and were less than enthused.

Lean Cuisine Spaghetti and Meatballs are a frozen meal of spaghetti noodles, a good number of meatballs, and a hearty tomato sauce.

A 9.5-ounce box retails for about $3.99 or around $2 to $3 on sale.


News: Kraft - New belVita Breakfast Biscuit

Not sure about what's up with the odd capitalization, but Kraft/Nabisco is out with new belVita Breakfast Biscuits. Owing that people don't normally eat cookies for breakfast here in the States (at least not regularly!), they're calling it "the launch of a new breakfast category in the U.S."

The biscuits were made to "provide nutritious sustained energy to help fuel your body throughout the morning." The company touts that "sustained energy release results from a combination of carefully selected ingredients and a special baking process that helps preserve the integrity of the grain so that the carbohydrates are slowly released in the body." So they're a bit like timed-release biscuits.

Review: Jack in the Box - Bacon Shake

Jack in the Box's Bacon Shake is part of their Marry Bacon promotion along with the BLT Cheeseburger. All they need to complete the trifecta are bacon fries...

I picked up a 16-ounce "regular"-sized shake for $2.79 and wasn't quite sure what to expect...

News: Jack in the Box - New Bacon Shake

Along with the limited-time BLT Cheeseburger, Jack in the Box is urging you to show your bacon love with their new, limited-time Bacon Shake.

The Bacon Shake is made with real vanilla ice cream, bacon-flavored syrup, whipped topping, and a maraschino cherry. So yeah, no real bacon here.

A 16-ounce regular comes in at around $2.79 (varying with location) and 770 calories which, is around the same number of calories in Jack's strawberry or vanilla shakes (and is pretty much in line with milkshakes in general; again no real bacon).

Donut Rolling Pin
In the lobby of Krispy Kreme's mix plant is a couple of knick knacks used to make donuts back in the olden days. Before they ever had a donut hopper to pop out rings of dough, they had this weird metal roller (shown above). It's a donut roller! I didn't pick it up but it looks pretty heavy, no?

Dunkin' Donuts' Smokehouse Sausage Breakfast Sandwich features a split Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage link, an egg and a slice of American cheese oven-toasted on an English muffin.

I actually picked this up at the airport while I was waiting for my plane to board. I don't think they even serve this at regular Dunkin' Donuts anymore (it's not on their website anyway).

Being an airport, the price was a little inflated at $3.79.
