New Pizza Slider from Arby’s

New at Arby’s is a mix of little and not so little.  Starting off with the new Pizza Slider which features pepperoni, Genoa salami, provolone cheese and roasted garlic marinara on a mini bun.  The Pizza Slider joins the Slider family as option number eight.  I love variety.  One Pizza Slider will set you back 300 calories, 17 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 930 milligrams of sodium, 23 grams of carbs, 2 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber, and 13 grams of protein.

Arby’s Pizza Slider has the same pepperoni, provolone cheese, genoa salami and roasted garlic marinara that you love on your regular sized pizza, but it’s a slider now. The future is now.

On the not so little front at Arby’s are Half Pound Roast Beef Sandwiches.  Nothing new to report other than these are bigger versions of existing sandwiches.  There’s the Half Pound Roast Beef, the Half Pound Beef ‘n Cheddar, and the Half Pound French Dip.

Review: Naked Chicken Chips from Taco Bell

Earlier this year, Taco Bell released the Naked Chicken Chalupa and I found it to be kind of average, but not because of its innovative Naked Chicken shell.  The latest extension of the Naked Chicken family are new Naked Chicken Chips, now available for a limited time only.
Taco Bell’s cringe-worthy description of new Naked Chicken Chips:

Time to get schooled in the fine art of dipping. Thanks to the all-new Naked Chicken Chips, you and your taste buds will get a graduate level crash course in both the theory and practicality of just how enlightening dipping can be. So order up some of these crispy triangles of marinated all-white-meat chicken, grab hold of that warm nacho cheese sauce and just go for it… literally rip it and dip it as many times as you’d like because you need to master the material. And before you know it, you’ll be leading the weekly lecture in your favorite Taco Bell restaurant booth, successfully defending your thesis on the benefits of double dipping while rocking a pretty sweet sport coat with leather elbow patches. It could totally happen.

So basically Naked Chicken Chips are Taco Bell’s version of chicken nuggets.  Let’s review: … continue reading “Review: Naked Chicken Chips from Taco Bell”
