There are some fast food places that are just so consistently good that I can almost guarantee my satisfaction. Popeyes rarely lets me down and on this day I’m happy to say I’ve got another smile on my face. I just tried the new Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp combo box and it reminded me that a great $5 fast food meal still exists.
Popeyes new Cracked Peppercorn Butterfly Shrimp is described like this:
Our premium, juicy, butterfly shrimp marinated in Louisiana seasonings cooked with a light and crispy sea salt and cracked pepper crust, served with regular fries and a biscuit
The combo box is priced at $4.99 and comes with 8 Butterfly Shrimp, fries, a biscuit, and Blackened Tartar Dipping Sauce.

The Cantina Bell Menu at Taco Bell is evolving into the Cantina Power Menu, launching nationally on Thursday, July 17th. The Cantina Power Menu will focus on Bowls and Burritos high in protein. Let’s hope there’s a quesadilla in the mix somewhere down the line too… the Cantina Double Steak Quesadilla had 43 grams of protein and I loved it.
Each menu item has a target to contain at least 20 grams of protein and be 500 calories or less.
The Cantina Power Menu includes Burritos and Bowls that feature premium ingredients, including a double portion of marinated and fire-grilled all-white meat chicken or marinated and grilled USDA-select steak. The menu is layered in fresh produce like crisp romaine lettuce and Pico de Gallo, which is prepared fresh daily – plus guacamole made from real Hass avocados and classic Taco Bell flavors like real cheddar cheese and reduced fat sour cream. The Burrito is wrapped and grilled in a flour tortilla and the Bowl sits on a bed of slow-cooked black beans and premium Latin rice. Suggested pricing: the Cantina Power Burrito is $3.79 for chicken and $3.99 for steak; the Cantina Power Bowl is $4.99 for chicken and $5.19 for steak; vegetarian options are also available at $3.79 for the Burrito and $4.99 for the Bowl.
For breakfast there will be a new Power Greek Yogurt ($2.49) as well as Power Breakfast Bowls and Burritos ($2.79) in test phases in the Omaha, Nebraska market starting August 4th.
Power Breakfast includes a Steak Bowl, Steak Burrito and great tasting Greek yogurt. In partnership with Three Happy Cows, a premium boutique brand, Taco Bell is bringing award-winning Greek yogurt, made only with natural ingredients, to customers, packed with 17 grams protein, for 240 calories, and available with the convenience of a drive-thru.

Up until now, other than those lemony scented wet naps they hand out to do battle with finger lickin’ good remnants, not too many KFC menu items could ever be considered “refreshing”. So when news came of a KFC 7-UP Mojito (Released July 7th) I was excited, wary and confused.
Being wary and confused is a trend now lending itself more and more to any new menu item the Colonel debuts in Canada of late (I’m looking at you Pulled Pork). You know, I would’ve taken the Colonel for more of a Mint Julep type of guy but here we are.
