Burger King Unveils The A.1. Halloween Whopper


Burger King restaurants are launching the A.1. Halloween Whopper sandwich this season, a burger unlike any other in America, with a black bun that has A.1. flavor baked in. While the pitch-black bun gives the Halloween Whopper sandwich a look that may make some think “hmmmmm?” the burger’s classic A.1. flavors will have tasters saying “mmmmm.”

Inspired by the Burger King brand’s Black Burger in Japan, which created buzz worldwide, the Halloween Whopper sandwich has a look that’s curious to the eye, while the A.1. bun’s flavor is familiar and savory to the palate. The A.1. smoky black pepper flavor is baked right into the bread. Layered between the buns is savory flame-grilled beef topped with melted American cheese, ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, A.1. Thick and Hearty Sauce, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions.

This burger will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide while supplies last for the suggested price of $4.99.

Doritos Brand Partners With The It Gets Better Project To Introduce “Doritos Rainbows,” Celebrating & Supporting The LGBT Community


The Doritos brand, in partnership with the It Gets Better Project, today announced a new, limited-edition product to celebrate and support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the boldest, most colorful way possible. Introducing Doritos Rainbows chips, the first Doritos product in history made up of multiple, rainbow-colored Doritos chips inspired by the Pride flag. The new product is available exclusively to consumers who donate to the It Gets Better Project, an organization that seeks to provide hope to LGBT young people and inspire the changes to make the world a better place for them.

Starting today, consumers who donate $10 or more in support to the It Gets Better Project through www.ItGetsBetter.org/DoritosRainbows will be mailed a bag of Doritos Rainbows chips, while supplies last. The goal is to raise funds for the It Gets Better Project and the important work the organization does in support of LGBT youth around the world. Upon making their donations, consumers are encouraged to share messages of hope and inspiration using #BoldandBetter. For more details, visit www.ItGetsBetter.org/DoritosRainbows.

The It Gets Better Project began in September 2010, when activist Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better. Five years later, the It Gets Better Project has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 60,000 user-created videos viewed more than 60 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities.

McDonald’s To Offer All Day Breakfast Beginning October 6, 2015


McDonald’s Corp. is embarking on its biggest operational change in years as it tries to increase sales with plans to offer breakfast items all-day at its more than 14,300 U.S. restaurants starting October 6, 2015.

The move to all-day breakfast, which McDonald’s has been testing since March, was approved in a vote by franchisees last week and affirmed on Tuesday by a franchisee leadership council, the company said. It marks the latest new initiative under Chief Executive Steve Easterbrook, who took over on March 1 vowing to revamp the burger giant’s stale image and end a sales slump in its home market that began nearly three years ago.

McDonald’s customers for years have asked the company to sell breakfast items past the traditional 10:30 a.m. cutoff, but the challenges of cooking Egg McMuffins alongside Big Macs deterred the company. In an interview, McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres said it is the biggest strategic move the company has made since it rolled out its McCafe line of coffee and espresso drinks across the U.S. in 2009.

“This is the consumers’ idea. This is what they want us to do,” Andres said. “That’s why I think this could be the catalyst for our turnaround.”

The move could help McDonald’s franchisees who have struggled with slowing sales, though it also creates new costs and complexities. To address their concerns, McDonald’s began testing all-day breakfast about six months ago in San Diego and later in Nashville and Mississippi, and in June, convened a seven-member task force of franchisees to study a nationwide rollout.

Wendy’s Announces Baconator Fries

Wendy’s introduced new Baconator Fries today. The new menu item contain a delicious blend of warm cheddar cheese sauce, freshly-cooked Applewood smoked bacon and shredded cheddar cheese drizzled over Wendy’s natural-cut fries. The suggested price for the bacon fries is $1.99.

Wendy’s will showcase the way bacon should be made on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter through a video series that will launch on July 6. These tongue-in-cheek “after-school” special videos tap into 90s nostalgia trends, entitled Bacon: Scared Straight. The videos will feature bacon puppets voiced over by decorated cartoon actor Billy West, one of the lead voice actors for the show Futurama and the talent behind other memorable characters like Woody the Woodpecker, Ren & Stempy and Doug Funny. Through these farcical videos, “at-risk” bacon teens will be warned of bacon-related dangers that might prevent them from becoming Baconator worthy.

Pizza Hut Blockbuster Projector Box


Ad agency Ogilvy & Mather Group HK and their Chief Creative Officer Reed Collins crafted the Blockbuster Box, which allows you to convert a pizza delivery box into a small film projector because movies and pizza were made for each other

The innovative packaging solution takes something you would normally throw out into something you want to keep.


The secret to each Blockbuster Box is the special pizza table that comes inside each box, which helps prevent the center of the box from touching your pizza and is traditionally made of plastic. The pizza table inside the special Blockbuster Boxes features a lens as part of the design, however, which you can insert into the side of the box after you punch out the perforated hole.

Once you’ve inserted the lens into the side of the pizza box, you’ll then need a smartphone to power the experience. Placing your smartphone in the center of the Blockbuster Box, the lens will magnify your smartphone’s display and project it onto the wall.

Available in 4 tasty designs based on romance, action, sci-fi and horror movie genres – there is a pizza box for everyone to enjoy.

McDonald’s New Nanoblock Sets


They only launched this week in Hong Kong, but already McDonald’s have sold out of their fun restaurant themed Nanoblocks sets.

The promotional items consisting of a Big Mac, fries, milkshake, apple pie, McFlurry and tiny McDonald’s restaurant, all built using the novelty toy blocks were individually on sale for $20HKD (around $2.50) when buying a meal and proved to be such a hit with customers that many outlets sold out immediately.

A limited number of extra units have been made available for purchase up until June 24 ($198HKD, or $25 for the full set).

Hopefully we will see a similar campaign in the US as these kitchy blocks would be equally popular here!
