By now you should know that calling the new Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza from Pizza Hut a “pizza” is misleading. Let’s not get into what makes a pizza and what doesn’t. Let’s just be clear that the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza from Pizza Hut is a pretty mediocre Hot Pocket.Pizza Hut describes their new Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza like this:
Four baked jumbo squares of toasty sharp-cheddar Cheez-It crust stuffed with cheese and served with marinara dipping sauce.
The Arby’s dessert menu has expanded to add the new S’mores Shake and the new Cinnamuffin. The S’mores Shake is a vanilla shake mixed with S’mores syrup and topped with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, Hershey’s milk chocolate pieces, graham cracker pieces and a Ghirardelli chocolate drizzle. A small S’mores Shake will set you back 660 calories, 20 grams of fat, 94 grams of sugar and 14 grams of protein.
It’s everything you love about sitting next to a cozy fire, roasting marshmallows to a sweet, toasty brown and placing them between a graham cracker with rich, indulgent chocolate. Except its in a shake. And the best part is you won’t smell like a campfire for like two weeks afterwards.
The new Cinnamuffin is described as “made up of decadent Danish dough bites and topped with cream cheese icing.” The new dessert is 280 calories, 13 grams of fat, 16 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.
I spotted new Wild Honey Mustard Boneless Wings at Popeyes at a location in New Market, Maryland. This isn’t yet on the Popeyes website, so it looks to be an early release (this Popeyes location started selling Chicken Sandwiches three weeks before the national release). New Wild Honey Mustard Boneless Wings are actually just the seven all white meat boneless wings you’re already familiar with, but with new Wild Honey Mustard dipping sauce (a “kicked up” peppery honey mustard). Priced at $5.99 and includes a regular side and biscuit. Price and participation may vary by location.
