Discussion: The Triple Treat Box from Pizza Hut

Not sure how much I actually care about this, but I felt the pictures were worth sharing.  Here’s the promo picture of Pizza Hut’s new Triple Treat Box.  There are three pullout drawers of food in the decorated box… medium one-topping pizza at the top, medium one-topping pizza in the middle, and breadsticks/cookie at the bottom.

Triple Treat Box

The outside box is true to the promo image, but instead of pullout drawers filled with grub I get three pizza boxes that you have to remove from the bigger box in order to actually open them.  I guess there’s some appeal to the drawers of food you can just slide out, but I’m not sure how practical of an idea that actually would turn out to be in the long run.  It’s an idea that could work… just at more of a cost.  Here’s what my Triple Treat Box looked like.

The bottom-line is that it’s still the same amount of food that is advertised, just not exactly the packaging used to promote it.  Does this matter to you?  If you ordered the $19.99 Triple Treat Box and didn’t get the same packaging used in the promos, would you be disappointed?

    Yes, I would be disappointed since they are charging quite a bit for the packaging to begin with

    I’d definitely be disappointed. I know not to expect the promotional material to be accurate, but the promo looks more “sturdy” than my experience with Pizza Hut’s pizza boxes.

    Also, they somehow managed to make it work with the Middle Eastern Triple Treat Box. (Though you can find unflattering “Expectation VS Reality” pictures of that, so maybe it was a flawed idea from the start.)

  3. BoJangles says:

    Well that is disappointing, but to be expected – its Pizza Hut after all.

  4. Sascha says:

    Yeah, it matters to me. That’s not at all what’s advertised, and the only reason I would have even considered it was for the novelty of it. Stupid execution.

  5. Starkzilla says:

    Well that’s a letdown.

  6. BBB says:

    2 pizza’s but only 5 bread sticks? I would be disappointed with that!

  7. Richard says:

    MAJOR GIGANTIC class action lawsuit disappointed.

  8. Patrick Bateman says:

    You could get the same general effect with a roll of duct tape.

  9. Jonathan Wayne says:

    To be honest I prefer the packaging you got, it makes more sense. If you don’t eat everything you will want to box it and store it separately and the advertised box probably won’t work too well.

    Not the best deal in the world by any means. Seems like a cheap way to replace the Big Dinner Box – you still get two one-topping mediums, but instead of wings (their most expensive side) you get some cheap little cookie pizza dough.

    Notice that on their site they also now have 2 medium 1 toppings, breadsticks and an 8 pc order of wings as a ‘fantasy football special’ for $25 – that bundle seem familiar?

    The epitome of a first world problem. There are more important things to worry about. If this is epicenter to your life, well then, I truly feel sorry for you.

  12. Shannon says:

    This seems kind of interesting to me. It seems like since they are stacked like that that everything should be kept warm. The value doesn’t seem all that great, because Pizza Hut is the place that has the $10 any topping pizzas.

  13. Andrew says:

    Doesn’t surprise me when it comes to pizza hut, I’ve seen them false advertise many new items in the past! I think the promo box does look pretty slick but for leftover storage the individual boxes do make more sense.

  14. Thistle says:

    The box is (er, would have been) something brand new and never seen from Pizza Hut before, so yeah, would be a major disappointment to me.

  15. Dank meme bro says:

    I wouldn’t care, mostly if the value was good enough.

    Though the fancy slip outs look better than the brown pizza boxes.
