KFC Only Follows 11 People On Twitter But It’s Pure Genius

KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter and at first look, the list is random. Why did the Colonel choose those people. But then you’ll realize that the only accounts it follows are the Spice Girls and six gentlemen named Herb.

McDonald’s Is Bringing Szechuan Sauce Back For One Day And Here’s How You Can Get It 

McDonald’s announced that it will make Szechuan Sauce available at certain restaurants on October 7, 2017 following an outpouring of demand from fans and a certain cartoon…In the season three premiere of Rick and Morty, Rick ranted about the condiment.

“That’s my one-armed man. I’m not driven by avenging my dead family Morty, that was FAKE! I’m driven by finding that, McNugget Sauce,” he says in the episode. “I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce, Morty. That’s my series arc Morty! If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping Szechuan Sauce, Morty!”

In July, McDonald’s sent the show creator Justin Roiland a 64-ounce jug of the sauce, which debuted in the summer of 1998 as a promotion for “Mulan.”

But how can you get your hands on Szechuan Sauce?  Read below from McDonalds:

“We’re giving away 1,000 limited-edition, hand numbered, screen-printed posters for all 10 sauces in our legendary lineup—including Szechuan Sauce. That’s right, collectible art, worthy of the pop-culture status fans have given their favorite sauces.

In addition, after nearly 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we’re even doing the impossible…

On Oct 7, together with the collectible sauce-themed posters, we’re also giving away a one-time only, limited-edition, run of Szechuan Sauce in select restaurants. And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited!

Want a chance to get your hands on some of this sweet (and sour, and savory, and tangy, and spicy, and tart, and…) artwork? Find participating McD’s nearest you HERE.

Burger King Whoppers As A Severance Package?

When you think about getting fired from a job, do you also think about flame-grilled burgers? Burger King wants you to make that connection.

Here’s how it works: If you post “I got fired. I want a free whopper. #WhopperSeverance” on LinkedIn, you’ll be a sent a link to register for a Whopper severance package in the mail, and that package includes a Burger King gift card.

“We know getting fired sucks, but getting a free Whopper doesn’t,” said Burger King global brand chief Fernando Machado in an email. “So, to showcase the love for the Whopper, we invited people to ‘own their fire’ on LinkedIn. We chose LinkedIn because that’s the website people tend to use as the social platform for careers.”

as part of the Whopper severance package, Burger King “partnered with the career satisfaction experts at The Muse to offer 30-minute one-on-one question and answer sessions to the first 100 participants who post and register,” according to the a statement from the brand, which notes that in the past three years, the chain has created 50,000 new jobs globally.

Heinz Develops Chicago Dog Sauce For The City That Won’t Put Ketchup On Its Hot Dogs

If you put ketchup on your hot dog, you’re not really a Chicagoan.

That truism is at the heart of a new Heinz campaign in which the brand leans into the Windy City’s no-ketchup-on-hot-dogs establishment by trying to develop a new tomato-based “Chicago Dog Sauce.” The hope is that people there actually would put this stuff on their hot dogs—along with the yellow mustard, chopped onions, sweet pickle relish, dill pickle spear, tomato slices, pickled sport peppers and dash of celery salt that make up the classic Chicago dog.

Chicago Dog Sauce, available for a limited time for $5 plus shipping and handling at chicagodogsauce.com, is being put to the test with product sampling throughout the Chicago area.

So, the whole campaign, timed to National Hot Dog Day on Tuesday, is a classic misdirect. Chicago Dog Sauce, with its “delicious red ripe tomatoes and special blend of spices and flavorings,” is really just regular old Heinz ketchup.

Patrón Teams With Guillermo del Toro For New Limited-Edition Tequila

Oscar-nominated film director Guillermo del Toro, has brought his imaginative art to an unlikely canvas, an intricately elaborate, limited-edition release from Patrón tequila.

This partnership marks one of the first collaborations in which del Toro has engaged outside of the entertainment industry, and among a handful of partnerships carefully selected by Patrón over its long history.

The drawings on the packaging were inspired by jimadores, the skilled laborers in Mexico who for generations have hand-harvested and trimmed the Weber Blue Agave that creates tequila centerpiece glass bottle.

Only a very limited number of sets of Patrón x Guillermo del Toro were produced, and are currently available at fine spirits and liquor retailers across the US for the suggested retail price of $399.

Oscar Mayer Wienerfleet

Oscar Mayer is expanding its WienerFleet. The fleet currently consists of the Wienermobile, WienerMini and WienerRover. The team has now added the WienerCycle and WienerDrone. These five unique vehicles will set off on a journey to no better place than Weiner, Arkansas for the ultimate Fourth of July celebration, bringing better hot dogs to the entire town.

“As the most iconic brand, we’re going where other hot dogs can’t. We’re committed to getting our new hot dog in everyone’s hands – and going to great lengths to do this. We knew that was a job for more than just our existing Wienermobile,” said head of marketing at Oscar Mayer, Greg Guidotti. “So, we’ve expanded our Oscar Mayer fleet, ensuring every American can taste the new recipe because we believe everyone deserves a better hot dog.”

The new WienerCycle and WienerDrone are fully equipped vehicles specifically built to deliver the new Oscar Mayer hot dogs. The WienerCycle is a three-wheeled moped, ideal for tricky urban deliveries, traveling on land with a sidecar that doubles as a hot dog warming station. The WienerDrone is the first unmanned hot dog-carrying aircraft designed for remote location delivery.

The WienerFleet expansion shows how Oscar Mayer is going to great lengths “for the love of hot dogs,” not only with its new hot dog recipe, but in connecting with consumers over the key grilling season, and getting a better dog in consumers’ hands.

Interested in having the iconic Wienermobile visit your town? Hot dog fans everywhere can follow @Wienermobile on Twitter for updates on its summer-long mission, and use the hashtag #ForTheLoveOfHotDogs #contest for a chance to win a stop along its route.
