Review: Pizza Hut Bacon Stuffed Crust Pizza (New/Limited Time Only)

It seems like every new thing at Pizza Hut these days is a gimmick. Recall our reviews of the Twisted Crust Pizza or (gasp!) the Hot Dog Bites Pizza. Yes, instead of focusing on making the regular pizzas better, Pizza Hut just throws new stuff out there to get people in the door. Then, it drops the item from the menu once the novelty wears off. We used to like Pizza Hut once upon a time. These days, we aren’t so enthralled. It could have to do with being served one too many shit pizzas. We could go on and…

Local Review: Spangles French Dip Steakburger (Limited Time Only)

As a service to all of our Kansas friends, it is time for another local review. We have reviewed an item at Spangles before. If you want background on Spangles, check it out here. For those not familiar, Spangles is known in these parts (what are we in 1890?) as having some unique takes on burgers. That is certainly true with Spangles’ newest creation. The French Dip Steakburger is served with French onion au jus sauce. The burger comes with two black Angus steakburgers, melted swiss cheese, onion rings, and a toasted sourdough bun. This is certainly a unique take…

Review: Baja Blast/Pitch Black Mountain Dew (Limited Time Only)

DEWcision 2016. Nope, it’s not political. It’s a fight between two flavors of Mountain Dew. Baja Blast has been sold exclusively in Taco Bells since 2004. It has had limited runs in stores, also. Pitch Black was released in 2004 to tie in with Halloween. It was a limited time only deal. It has also hit shelves a time or two since then. Now, Mountain Dew is taking a vote. The winner will end up on store shelves permanently. Some decisions are very important, you see. Or something. The side of the bottles indicate to pick a flavor, hashtag your…

Review: Subway Thick-Cut Carved Turkey & Bacon Sandwich (New/Limited Time Only)

Subway is at it again. It is trying to make sandwiches that don’t suck. How enthralling. Recall our earlier review on Subway’s Rotisserie-Style Chicken Sandwich. Subway seems to be trying to jump on the “healthy” (read trendy) craze by introducing antibiotic-free slop. And no artificial preservatives (in the case of this turkey). Swell. Because rotted turkey that has been sitting at Subway too long tastes better, evidently. Now, Subway has introduced “carved” turkey. This must be some kind of piss poor attempt at competing with the trendy places like Panera Bread. Oh my. To us, this is basically acknowledging that…

Review: Wendy’s Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich (Limited Time Only)

Wendy’s. Oh, Wendy’s. You used to be so good. Then, you screwed it all up. But for whatever reason, we still get an occasional Wendy’s craving. The burgers and fries have been messed up to the point of no return. And eating a meal will require a second mortgage on your house. But one thing is still reliable; the Spicy Chicken Sandwich still rocks. Wendy’s brought back its Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich. It has been on the menu in the past, and is back for a limited time only. We were pretty new when this sandwich was out last…

Review: Hot Diggity Dog Pringles (Limited Time Only)

Denny was at Walgreens recently buying drugs (don’t ask), and he came across Hot Diggity Dog Pringles. The signage indicated that the Hot Diggity Dog flavor was exclusive to Walgreens. What? Yes, hot dog flavored Pringles.  Exclusive to Walgreens.  Something seems off, doesn’t it?  It struck us strange.  Of all places to get an exclusive flavor, Walgreens wouldn’t be one that we would think of.  OK, then. Either way, hot dog flavored Pringles sounded interesting.  Denny picked them up with his drugs, and here we are. After some investigating, it looks like these were introduced in December of 2015.  Once…

Review: Pizza Hut Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Spicy Bourbon BBQ Wings (New/Limited Time Only)

No, that isn’t a spaceship you see in the picture.  That is the new way Pizza Hut is packaging its wings. Yeah, we don’t get it either. Pizza Hut’s wing division, known as WingStreet, has introduced new wing sauces and flavors.  The main featured one is the Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Spicy Bourbon BBQ.  Other new sauces include Hawaiian Teriyaki and Spicy Garlic.  Also new are Ranch and Cajun Style dry rubs.  Pizza Hut is also pushing adding the dry rubs to the french fries. Fantastical. The Beam sauce is the one featured in the ads.  So, that’s the one…
