The usual jumble of new and returning burgers and sides, in solos and deals. But the starring category this week is cakes and pastries with no fewer than 4 new menu items. Put on your anti-hype waders and jump in. It’s gonna get deep!
The new Firehouse Triple Stack Sub: Full of umami and tang.
New Smokin’ Triple Stack Sub
Firehouse Subs is stacking up three-meat – smoked beef brisket, smoked turkey breast, and Virginia honey ham – subs topped with melted cheddar, sweet & tangy slaw, barbecue sauce, and mayo. For a limited time only. Full of umami and tang. Smoky BBQ fans, rush on over…

Arby’s builds new loaded fries
A premium price, but premium ingredients and lots of them. This dish isn’t just a side, it’s a meal! The chain’s crinkle fries topped with warm cheddar cheese sauce, diced chicken nuggets, chopped bacon, and a drizzle of new Sweet & Spicy Sauce.
Sounds like a kind of complicated flavour profile, but none of the constituent tastes actually clash with each other. Available for a limited time, from participating Arby’s locations.
Checkers, Rally’s changes up $5 Meal Deal
C&R are subbing in their Mushroom Swiss Burger as an option in their ongoing $5 Meal Deal. The other burger choice right now is a Checker- (or Rallyburger) with 8 Chicken Bites, a small order of Famous Seasoned Fries, and a 16-oz. fountain drink.
Eggos launches three new waffles
Each with its own angle on your 5-star breakfast dreams. Each flavoured through and through with its signature taste:
Chocolatey Chip Banana Waffles with banana flavor and chocolaty chips; Vanilla Bean Grab & Go Liege-Style Waffles adds vanilla flavor to the available choices. The Grab ‘N Go designation means they don’t have to be toasted before serving- a new thing for Eggos; and Berry Blast Mini Toast Waffles in strawberry and blueberry flavors.
Kellogg’s débuts more new Pop Tarts
The new flavour Kind of appeals to me: Banana Bread! I’ve made more Banana Bread in my baking lifetime than I can recall and it’s always been received with a smile. I don’t think there’s such a thing as bad Banana Bread – just different. Kellogg’s new version features a special cinnamon-mollasses flavoured crust and big-banana-flavoured filling. At the usual sources.
Krispy Kreme sprouts Spring Minis
KK is offering four new Spring Minis with bright, pretty, spring-coloured sugar decorations. Get ’em in big boxes that also contain enough original minis to complete the classic mini doughnut 16-grid.
Not much new there in terms of flavour, but some of the most artistic KK sinkers I’ve seen in a long time.
Rice Crispies ‘Candy Bars’
For ooey-gooey-chewy fans… Think good old Rice Crispies Marshmallow Treats in a chewier, denser format, in two flavours: Original Vanilla and Strawberry. They’re a collab between Kellogg’s and Franklin Candy, and are available via Amazon.
And that’s the skinny on what’s going to make some of us a little fatter over the coming days and weeks. See you back here in 7 for the next edition of Fast Food Week!
