McDonald’s Launches New Triple Breakfast Stacks

Beginning November 1, McDonald’s customers can conquer morning hunger with Triple Breakfast Stacks, a breakfast sandwich that doubles down on customers’ favorite ingredients.

Triple Breakfast Stacks come with two slices of melty American cheese between two savory, hot sausage patties. They’re topped with crispy, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon and an egg. Guests can opt for their choice of a toasted McMuffin, buttery and flaky biscuit, or sweet and savory McGriddles cakes.

McDonald’s cooked up the idea for Triple Breakfast Stacks after noticing customers’ ongoing enthusiasm for adapting the menu and inventing their own unique and delicious offerings online.  These customizations, ordered in restaurants each day, have long been known by customers, media and McDonald’s crew members as the “Secret Menu.”

“People have been hacking our menu for years – so much so that it’s inspired our new Triple Breakfast Stacks,” said Manager of Culinary Innovation Chef Mike Haracz. “We love seeing the fun ways our customers and McDonald’s crew have been creating their own takes on our classics. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next – you never know what might end up on our menu.”

Kellogg Partners With GLAAD For Spirit Day, Launching “All Together” Cereal

Kellogg Company firmly believes in equity and inclusion in the workplace, marketplace and in the communities where we work and live. Continuing its commitment to inclusion, Kellogg is again partnering with GLAAD as an official sponsor of Spirit Day, the largest, most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world. Kellogg, its brands, and employees, are ‘going purple’, the color of spirit on the rainbow flag, to stand up to bullying and show support for LGBTQ youth.

New this year – in celebration of Spirit Day and for one day only, Oct. 18 – limited edition “All Together” Spirit Day cereal boxes, will be available exclusively at Kellogg’s New York City Cafe to mix favorite Kellogg’s cereals together in celebration of belonging no matter how you look, where you’re from, or who you love. All proceeds from Kellogg’s “All Together Cereal” will be donated to GLAAD.

Celebrating Spirit Day globally, Kellogg employees around the world will participate in conversations that enable the company to build a culture where all employees are inspired to share their passion, talents and ideas. At Kellogg Company World Headquarters, employees will invite the community to help celebrate Spirit Day with an anti-bullying art exhibit – created by local students – during a local art hop event.

Burger King Nightmare King

Burger King loves to experiment with weird burger buns—usually featuring an unnatural color. Today, the chain has unveiled a new burger, the Nightmare King, featuring a green bun just in time for Halloween, but this time there’s a new twist on the unusual bun gag: The company is looking to make good on its nightmare claim using science to figure out if eating this burger will actually make you more likely to have a nightmare.

The chain, along with creative shop David Miami, conducted a sleep study in partnership with the Paramount Trials as well as the Florida Sleep and Neuro Diagnostic Services to find out just how scary its new burger is (because we fear burgers this time of year?). Using 100 participants for 10 nights Burger King asked participants to eat its burger and then tracked their heart rate, brain activity and breath.

“According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night,” said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, the somnologist and lead doctor behind the study, in a statement. “But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.”

Apparently the burger, which has beef, chicken, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onions on the aforementioned green bun, has a protein and cheese combination that can cause “an interruption of the subjects’ REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams,” noted Medina.

Why anyone would choose to eat a burger that allegedly causes nightmares? Well, we still don’t have that answer. The burger will be available at Burger King locations from Oct. 22 to Oct. 25.

Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Win Rights To McDonald’s Monopoly Game Theft Story

Ben Affleck (The Town), Matt Damon (The Martian), and Fox have won the rights to an article written by Jeff Maysh titled “How An Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald’s Monopoly Game And Stole Millions” after an intense auction. Affleck is set to direct the feature based on the true crime story that was published in The Daily Beast, with Damon set to star.

The true story centers on an ex-cop, Jerome Jacobson, in Rhode Island who rigged the McDonald’s Monopoly Game and allegedly stole over $24 million. Jacobson apparently shared the stolen money with a group of co-conspirators who offered bribes to the ex-cop. Maysh’s article details how Jacobson fell under the FBI’s gaze after years of he and his network illegally rigging the game to steal millions. Using undercover agents, the FBI sent in a camera crew to Jacobson’s home to listen to his fraudulent story of how he supposedly legitimately won the game, recording every lie.

Jacobson, who acted as head of security for a Los Angeles company that was responsible for generating the game pieces, worked with an interesting group of co-conspirators that consisted of mobsters, a psychic, strip-club owners, drug traffickers, and even a Mormon family who helped steal $24 million in cash and prizes.

The film based on the McDonald’s Monopoly Game theft will be written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Deadpool) and produced by The Pearl Street partners. David Klawans (Argo) is set to executive produce the feature. Matt Reilly will oversee the project for Fox while Madison Ainley steers it for Pearl Street.
