Taco Bell revealed additional details for what could be their “biggest launch to date” during the upcoming Super Bowl 50.

The latest announcement gives fans a small glimpse of what’s next – including the first ever Taco Bell pre-order for their latest food innovation and teasers of their ad that will air during the big game.

“We felt the biggest media event of the year offered a perfect opportunity for us to announce what might be our biggest launch ever! However, with respect to our biggest fans (and those who just love to be the first to get their hands on the next big thing), we didn’t want to make them wait that long,” said Marisa Thalberg, Chief Marketing Officer for Taco Bell Corp. “That’s why, as part of the next phase of our big reveal, we’ve created a pre-order program on Ta.co that will give people special access to try it a full two days before everyone else. There’s just one thing: it’s a ‘blind’ pre-order. Trust us, though; it’s worth it.”

Fans are invited to join in the excitement by pre-ordering the next craveable food innovation on Ta.co starting today. Taco Bell is welcoming customers who pre-order on Ta.co to pick up their reserved food item on February 6 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. local time at stores nationwide, before it’s available everywhere on February 8.

It will be available in both Extra Crispy Chicken (breast, drum stick, thigh) and Tenders. Nashville Hot contains the perfect blend of spicy cayenne and smoky paprika and is crowned with pickle chips—the ideal sidekick. Special edition packaging has been designed for Nashville Hot that will allow guests to dip their biscuit in with KFC Nashville Hot’s extraordinary sauce for twice the delight. For individual meals, Nashville Hot will start at $5.49 for an Extra Crispy Chicken Drum & Thigh, 3 Piece Tenders basket, or 1 Piece Breast and comes with KFC’s famous coleslaw, pickles, and a biscuit. For group meals, Nashville Hot will be available in an 8-pc chicken Meal & 12-piece Tenders Meal which come with 2 large sides, pickles, and 4 biscuits. And for tailgating or watching sports if you want something way better than hot wings for your guests, Nashville Hot will be available in a 24-piece Tender Platter.

Ample Hills Creamery has unveiled two limited edition Star Wars flavors: The Dark Side (ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls) and The Light Side (bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies). The ice cream was designed in conjunction with Disney.

“As a sci-fi writer in my past professional life, and a longtime Star Wars fan, this is a dream collaboration. And to be able to work with Lucasfilm and Disney Consumer Products to create new ice cream flavors that represent the two sides of The Force… that might just be the coolest thing we’ve ever done,” Brian Smith, who co-owns Ample Hills Creamery with his wife, Jackie Cuscuna, said in a statement.

Star Wars fans can order the ice cream at AmpleHills.com, where the Star Wars flavors are being sold in four packs of “collectible, reusable plastic pint containers,” designed by Ample Hills Creamery’s Art Director, Lauren Kaelin.

Domino’s Unveils The DXP: Delivery eXPert Vehicle

1

Behold the Domino’s DXP (Delivery eXPert), think of it as a Batmobile for pizza delivery.

The modified Chevrolet Spark is tricked out with a warming oven and space for 80 pizzas, sides, two-liter bottles of soda and dipping sauces. The driver’s seat is the only seat and a puddle light projects the Domino’s logo onto the ground.

2

Local Motors, which once built a 3-D printed car, held a crowdsourced competition to collect and perfect design elements, while Rousch Enterprises, developer of Google’s self-driving car platform, put the DXP together. The brand’s lead agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky—the shop behind Domino’s Tracker and other high-profile promotions (like the ability to order by text, tweet and emoji)—worked on the DXP’s flashy exterior design and bespoke car topper.

3

There are 100 such vehicles in production, and by year’s end they’ll serve as mobile advertisements while speeding pies to customers in cities like Boston, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, San Diego and Seattle.

“People want their pizza to be as hot and fresh out of the oven as possible,” CP+B executive creative director Matt Talbot tells AdFreak. “The DXP, with its built-in warming oven, can deliver on that better than any vehicle before it. The other compartments in the vehicle also mean that any drinks, sides and sauces will make it safely to your front door as well.”

Four years in the making, the DXP has been rigorously tested, Talbot adds: “That includes flammability testing, cold weather testing, rain testing and excessive-use, including 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the warming oven door.”

Pennsylvania’s most iconic chocolate maker is doubling-down on one of its most popular treats. The Hershey Company on Tuesday announced its Hershey Kisses Deluxe.

The new Kisses, on sale November 5, 2015, will be twice the size of a normal Kiss – the oversized, chocolate chips wrapped in silver foil – and feature a hazelnut center and rice crisps in the chocolate.

The bigger Kisses are wrapped in gold foil and, according to the company’s website, will be packaged in quantities ranging from 3 to 75. The three-Kiss box will cost $1; the 75-piece gift box will be $32.

Company officials tell USA Today the innovation is the biggest since the central Pennsylvania company added almonds to the Kisses 25 years ago.
