7-Eleven rolls out BOGO Pizza deal

But you have to use the Wendy’s mobile app and order for delivery.

Kellogg’s sends snackers three new munchies

Nobody (I think) will deny how perfect some cereals are for box-to-hand-to-mouth snacking. Perhaps the oldest of those is Sugar Frosted Flakes.

Now, Kellogg’s is blasting out Chocolate, Strawberry Milkshake, and Cinnamon French Toast flavours. Great with milk, too, I imagine. Coming in May to a cereal aisle near your.

SONIC pours Summer Edition Slushes

SONIC is partnering with Red Bull to bring back 2 summer Slushes: Special Edition Strawberry Apricot Red Bull and Original Red Bull. They’re available now for half off when ordering during Happy Hour (4 – 10 p.m.), or anytime ordering via the app.

DQ welcomes summer (!) with new Slush

Poolside Punch Twisty Misty Slush, is officially described as tasting, “like summer in a cup.” It’s a slush ice drink with swirled layers of blue raspberry and pink punch flavors.

Dairy Queen says it’s meant to be a ‘social media friendly’ beverage ‘you can enjoy by the pool’… It’s pushing the season a bit (a lot!), but what Fast Food chain doesn’t do that these days?

Nerds Candy launching Bomb Pops

Original Bomb Pops frozen ice on a stick treats are débuting a new Nerds flavour. It’s actually a three 3-in-1 ice pop featuring strawberry, watermelon, and grape Nerds flavors. The Nerds Bomb is the latest in a series of collabs – with Crush, Warheads, and Hawaiian Punch.


International Alert: Burger King pours Peanut Sauce

BK South Korea – one of those American-based Fast Food giants that often goes off the rails menu-wise – is serving up Peanut Butter Stackers. But by all accounts that have reached me, it’s not Satay-style Sauce. The official description says it’s made with Peanut Butter and ‘Dark’ Cheese.

Now, your trad Stacker is a two-patty burger. But in South Korea, there’ll also one with a Crispy Chicken patty in place of one beef slab. Will you be there May 8 or after?

International Alert: Pizza Hut does Dim Sum

A Dim Sum Pizza, that is. “Ini Pizza BARU yang pasti kalian tunggu!” the official announcement from @Pizza_HutID trumpets, in Indonesian: “This is the Pizza you’ve been waiting for!” Maybe…

It’s a regular pizza (Chicken, Meat Lovers, Cheese Lovers, and others) with little pastry-wrapped Dim Sum ‘purses’ filled with ‘prawns and fish’ arranged around the rim. Available now at Pizza Hut Indonesia locations for just 123,000 Indonesian Rupees, or around (US)$8.57.

And that’s the crème de la crème

… Of what’s destined to make some of us a little plus lourde over the coming pre-summer days and and weeks. See you back here in 7 for the next edition of Fast Food Week!
