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

pizza-hut-blockbuster-box-movie-projector

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

12

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!

Olive Garden Announces Breadstick Sandwiches Coming This Summer

1

Starting June 1, 2015 Olive Garden patrons will be able to order chicken parmigiana or meatball sandwiches made with their popular breadsticks.

“We’re always looking to evolve our menu,” explains Olive Garden spokeswoman Jessica Dinon. “We’re always bringing on new items, and right now we’re really taking those dishes our guests know and love and giving them more ways to enjoy it. Obviously people love our breadsticks.”

The sandwich breadsticks will be wider, to accommodate the filling. But other than that size change, the recipe and taste will stay the same, says Dinon. Diners will still receive an unlimited supply of breadsticks with their sandwiches, just as they do with any other selection on the menu, along with soup or salad.
