Now while I neither want to lampoon the seriousness of a storm or such a respectable metric, the idea of using a restaurant chain to gauge things is inspiring. As a result, I've put together a list of how Denny's can predict exactly the kind of night you're having.
When I was wondering last year why the national burger chains suddenly seemed to be converging on Kansas City all at once, I never thought to look at the receipts of my fellow citizens.
But according to Bundle (see the full-size chart here), the proof lies in the purchases. The average Kansas City household ranks sixth in the country in the amount of money spent on fast food. Perhaps that's why Missouri is angling to be one of the top 10 fattest states in the nation.
I've had walking tacos and Frito pies. I understand that humans want to elevate corn chips into an entire meal. But sometimes you have to accept that a food is a side dish for a reason and allow it to shine in a complementary role. Taco Bell didn't get the memo.
Foodbeast writes that the fast-food chain is apparently testing Doritos Locos Tacos -- taco shells made of nacho cheese Doritos. This comes only five months after Doritos released a limited-edition Taco flavor.
If Olean gave us anal leakage, then bacon is now giving us menu leakage. The ubiquitous food is being celebrated by Denny's, as part of a 10-week promotion, "Baconalia," which launched last week.
The pork homage is encapsulated in seven dishes, including a BBBLT (eight strips of bacon), bacon meatloaf and the ultimate bacon breakfast (six strips to two eggs). The leakage comes from the dessert offering -- a maple bacon sundae.
If you can't beat them, co-brand them. Carl's Jr. and Hardee's rolled out a new line of under-500-calorie turkey burgers this week designed through a partnership with Men's Health. The perennial (unintentional) star of the magazine's Eat This, Not That, is looking to offer a healthier option for men. The problem is that in comes with the same packaging and a tired concept. And so here are the top five reasons that you won't remember that Carl's Jr. once sold turkey burgers.
Nobody likes to be told to eat their vegetables. But what if somebody ordered you not to eat those fries?
The debate over personal responsibility versus government regulation when it comes to fast-food choices is looking like the next big health kerfuffle. America has finally looked in the rearview mirror and is wondering if the Burger King wrapper in the back is to blame for why it appears larger. But who decides what happens to our diets?
There's no black tie required in the drive-through, but you will have to make a reservation if you want to get your free spicy chicken biscuit at Chick-fil-A next week.
The chicken chain is introducing its next breakfast sandwich with a free promotion between January 3 and January 8. In order to get your free biscuit, you'll just have to give up your e-mail address here and pick an hour-long window between 6:30 and 10:30 a.m.
I thought that pizza in a cone was the future of fast food back in 2008. And that is why I'm not meant to own a franchise any time soon.
But Asian street food is going to be huge in 2011. Trust me. If the Udon Project is right, get ready to start scarfing down pad Thai in rice paper wraps. The winners of an online competition to reinvent fast food are taking pad Thai to the drive-through.
The life cycle of fast food innovations is like a radioactive isotope. A shiny new material appears to glow brightest at the outset before beginning a spiral of rapid decay in public interest.
Take McDonald's McGriddle, the sausage/bacon and egg on a maple-flavored pancake sandwich. That changed breakfast when it was introduced in 2003, suggesting that bread could be made from an entree. But as we approach nearly eight years of McGriddle chomping, I think it's time we gave our jaws a break. Yup. I'm talking about a pancake sausage breakfast shake.
LOOKS GREAT TO ME!
