It’s hard to find a fast food place that has cheese curds, but if you can find an A&W, you can find them (read my A&W Cheese Curds review from 2012). New to the A&W menu and available for a limited time only are new Sriracha Cheese Curds. Sriracha Cheese Curds are described as “100% Wisconsin White Cheddar Cheese Curds with “just the right amount of sriracha heat.” A small order will set you back 513 calories, 33 grams of fat, 31 grams of carbs, and 23 grams of protein. Available at participating A&W locations while supplies last.
For a limited time only, participating Wendy’s locations will be promoting a new 2 for $5 deal. Choose either a Dave’s Single, Spicy Chicken, or a 10 piece Nuggets and mix or match for the promo price.

Burger King posted on their social media channels, “don’t blink…it’s coming”, with a gif attached. Pausing the gif at the right spot will reveal a sandwich with a white bun. Is this a Ghost Whopper? BK is no stranger to different colored buns. In 2015 BK gave us the A.1. Halloween Whopper with a black bun followed by the Angriest Whopper with a red bun in 2016. In 2018 we had the Nightmare King with a green bun. We’ll keep you posted on this mystery white bun burger that we’ll just call the Ghost Whopper until official details are revealed.

Taco Bell can no longer give a basic description of any of their products so I’ll just grab one of the four paragraphs used for the Sour Skittles Freeze on the Taco Bell website… “Picture this. We take your favorite round candy. Take the beloved sour-ified version of it. Turned down the temp. And transformed it into your new favorite drink. Good, now, stop picturing it. Because we have a literal picture of it. See above. That’s the new Sour Strawberry Skittles Freeze.” Correction, see below:
