Pizza Hut Just Unveiled Best Pizza EVER
This is why I freaking love Pizza Hut.
For a limited time, Pizza Hut is offering the best pizza ever created by mankind: Cheesy Beef Poutine Pizza.
The pizza is topped with steak, french fries, cheese curds and mozzarella. It doesn’t come with gravy so maybe it would be a good idea to bring your own.
The only drawback: It’s only available in Canada. Are you buying that plane ticket already?
Burger King To Sell Own Version Of McRib
Are you tired of waiting until October to maybe get a oh-so-delicious McDonald’s McRib sandwich each year? Well, we have good news… kinda: On May 21, Burger King is releasing its own boneless rib menu item, the BBQ-sauce-slathered and sweet-pickle-bearing BK Rib Sandwich.
The knockoff will cost you about $3.49 alone, or $5.59 if you want fries and a drink with that, and it will only be available on summer.
“Our guests have grown to look for a variety of options,” explains Burger King’s vice president of global innovation. “It’s not just about beef anymore, but other proteins like chicken and turkey and pork.”
The BK Rib Sandwich sold “extremely well” when it tested in Louisiana, the VP adds. Also on Burger King’s special menu this summer: a Memphis Pulled Pork sandwich, Carolina BBQ sandwiches, sweet potato fries, a BBQ Chicken Salad, and a bunch of desserts involving Oreos.

Fail: Budweiser Unveils New Can Design
I don’t want to know how much money Budweiser spent on the development of its new beer can… but judging on the process description, they probably overspent.
The company says its engineers spent several YEARS and made major equipment upgrades to create what it calls “a beer can like no other.” What’s it all about? A can shaped to look like Bud’s “bow tie” logo. “This can is eye-catching, easy to grip, trendy, and—according to our research—very appealing to young adults,” says the VP of innovation for parent company Anheuser-Busch.
The bow tie can won’t replace traditional Bud cans yet, they’ll be sold in special 8-packs beginning May 6.
If you are scratching your head thinking why would anyone think this is a good idea, here’s a hint: The new cans contain 8.5 fewer calories… because the new design only holds 11.3 ounces of beer, rather than the standard 12 ounces, and something tells me the price will be the same.
Pizza Hut Pizza Now Comes With Bowls Of Cheese
It’s official: Pizza Hut wants to clog your veins and kill you… at least that what it feels like after they announced their new “Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza” (and don’t get me started on that name)
What’s new? Attached to each slice are two crust bowls filled with five different types of cheese which amount to about 20-grams-of-fat-per-slice.
Each of the 16 bread cups contains a mix of asiago, romano, fontina, provolone and mozzarella cheese… which doesn’t sound bad unless you want more than one slice.
Ben & Jerry’s Announces New Flavors For 2013
I love Ben & Jerry’s… I do. They have some of the most delicious funny ice cream flavors in the world, and by the looks of it, 2013 will be a great year for new flavors.
The ice cream giant announced five more full-time flavors for this year in addition to the recently created Liz Lemon Greek yogurt.
Candy Bar Pie… I have my eye on you.
Watch Heidi Klum Seduce You With A Burger (video)
Heidi Klum is the latest babe featured in a Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s commercial
The ad takes the fast food chain’s typical formula — blonde model, bathing suit, massive hamburger — and gives it a theme: “The Graduate.”
“Basically, I am Mrs. Robinson and I am seducing this cute little boy… with my burger,” says Heidi in the behind-the-scenes video (below). “I shove the burger in his mouth in a sexy way.” As the commercial’s creative director Mick DiMaria put it, “We’re basically taking that scene and foodifying it.”
Twinkies May Have New Home, Could Be Back Soon
Good news everyone! Twinkies will be back before you know it.
If all goes according to plan, our beloved Twinkies could be back in stores within months. Hostess has canceled today’s auction for its brands and facilities and will sell them to Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co., investment firms that bid $410 million.
Now the companies, which the Times describes as having “a shared history of corporate turnarounds,” await court approval; a hearing is due March 19. As for what this turnaround could look like, the would-be owners gave a few hints: Twinkies in more stories, 100-calorie options, and Zach Galifianakis as potential spokesman.
“We would hope to have this wonder product back on the shelf by early this summer,” says a spokesman for Metropoulos, which owns Pabst Blue Ribbon and Vlasic pickles and whose head, C. Dean Metropolous, is poised to be the new CEO for the snacks.
