Would you eat lasagna stuffed with macaroni and cheese?
April 22nd, 2021 under Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]

There is a trend where companies combine different foods together. Stouffers is jumping on the bandwagon now, and this summer, they are releasing LasagnaMac for a limited time. It is their meat lasagna with a layer of macaroni and cheese.

“Bringing together two of our best-selling products is a simple way to express the intent of our new marketing campaign, Happyfull,” said Megan McLaughlin, brand marketing manager, STOUFFER’S. “We worked to create a recipe that will make our fans feel both happy and full. LasagnaMac is a great example of how our innovation is anchored in consumer obsession – and not to mention, it’s incredibly delicious.”

I can’t wait to see what they do next. I am hoping for Sh!t on Shingle Pizza or Swedish Stuffed Peppers. What combinations do you want to see?

McDonald’s has teamed up with BTS to release a meal in honor of the K-Pop band. Their happy meal includes 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries, medium Coke, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces that are popular in South Korea.

“BTS truly lights up the world stage, uniting people across the globe through their music,” said Morgan Flatley, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald’s USA. “We’re excited to bring customers even closer to their beloved band in a way only McDonald’s can – through our delicious food – when we introduce the BTS signature order on our menu next month.”

Whether you are a member of the BTS Army or not, this sounds like the perfect meal for the summer. Good thing it comes out on May 26th.

Oh no, there is a shortage of ketchup packets
April 7th, 2021 under Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]

Do you want ketchup with that? That might be a problem when you go to any restaurant these days. Due to sit-down, take-out, and fast food establishments now using ketchup products, demand is greater than supply. There has been a 13% increase in demand as compared to last year. Therefore, they have had to limit how many packets you can get.

“The unmatched consumer love for our iconic HEINZ brand as well as our longstanding partnership with the restaurant industry are two responsibilities we take very seriously – which was why we made strategic manufacturing investments at the start of the pandemic to keep up with the surge in demand for ketchup packets driven by the accelerated delivery and take-out trends,” Steve Cornell, Kraft Heinz’s president of Enhancers, Specialty and Away from Home Business Unit, told TODAY Food.

Hopefully, they will be able to increase the supply so that people like Ed Sheeran can have catsup with their fries. Since I am not a fan of the red stuff, I am fine with the shortage. However, if it was ranch dressing, then I would be curled up in a corner crying.

Dunkin’ Donuts gets into the jellybean business
March 4th, 2021 under Fast Food, Sweets. [ Comments: none ]


Dunkin’ Donuts has been expanding its brand over the last few years. They have ventured into the cereal business, much to the delight of my belly, and now they are teaming up with Frankford Candy for jellybeans based on their iced coffee flavors.

Brian Gilbert, Vice President of Retail Business Development at Dunkin’, says, “Jelly beans are such a classic and popular part of the holiday and seasonal celebration. We are thrilled to team up with Frankford Candy, the leader in confections that have delighted Americans for decades, to create a fun and sweet new way for people to enjoy the great taste of Dunkin’.”

What flavors will be in the $3.49 bag that will be available at Walgreen’s and Rite-Aid? They will taste like Dunkin’s signature iced coffees like French Vanilla, Caramel Latte, Butter Pecan, Toasted Coconut, and Hazelnut.

My mouth is already wet with desire for them. Too bad we have to wait until Easter to eat them. Even sadder is that they will only be available for a limited time. Maybe if we eat enough of them; they will make it a permanent thing?

Dunkin’ Donuts debuts its Spring menu that comes with Avocado Toast
February 24th, 2021 under Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]


While several fast food restaurants are in a chicken sandwich war, Dunkin’ Donuts is now selling Avocado Toast. Who needs fried chicken when you have the green stuff?

The spread is made with avocado, sea salt, black pepper, and lemon juice and placed on top of their sourdough bread. Instead of there being a cherry on top, they season it with Everything But the Bagel seasoning.

Avocado, not your thing? Then they are adding two grilled cheese sandwiches to their menu. Both the plain and ham & cheese melts are filled with white cheddar and American between their sourdough bread.

Just want a donut? Then have one that is topped with Matcha.

Need something to down all that delicious food with? They have five new coffees:
Cold Brew with Sweet Cold Foam adds the vanilla-forward flavor of Sweet Cold Foam to perfectly complement the chocolate notes of Dunkin’s Cold Brew. The Sweet Cold Foam gradually blends into the Cold Brew as it’s sipped, delivering a delicious coffee beverage with a silky, smooth texture.

Chocolate Stout Cold Brew with Sweet Cold Foam elevates the chocolate notes of Dunkin’s Cold Brew with malty molasses flavor. Topped with Sweet Cold Foam, it brings guests the feeling of drinking a rich stout, finished with hot chocolate powder for even more chocolatey goodness.

The Charli Cold Foam offers a remix of Charli’s go-to Dunkin’ order that debuted on Dunkin’ menus in September 2020. The Charli Cold Foam features her famous Dunkin’ favorite – a Dunkin’ Cold Brew with three pumps of caramel – now with Sweet Cold Foam and cinnamon sugar on top.

The Blueberry Matcha Latte is a delightfully delicious combination of our sweetened Matcha green tea powder blend with blueberry flavor and guests’ choice of milk. Available hot, iced, or frozen, the pairing of blueberry flavor and Matcha creates an irresistible handcrafted beverage.

Irish Creme Flavored Coffee is a smooth velvety flavor, with notes of sweet creme and vanilla, enhanced with the flavor of Irish Creme whiskey, available in Dunkin’s hot, iced, and frozen coffees, as well as Dunkin’s crafted espresso drinks. Returning

I am out of here. I am off to get lunch at Dunkin’, and I am not sure what to get.
