There was a time where you could only find avocado toast on the Sunday menu of restaurants. Looks like those days are long gone, as the ever-popular dish of smeared avocado on bread has hit the fast-food mainstream. 

Dunkin’ has just added a new spring menu, and one of the latest items is a slice of Avocado Toast

The new Dunkin’ Avocado Toast features a creamy avocado spread that’s made with avocado, sea salt, black pepper, and lemon juice. It’s served on a slice of Dunkin’s toasted Sourdough Bread. Finally, it’s topped with an Everything Bagel seasoning that features sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, and garlic. 

Dunkin’s new Avocado Toast is available now at nationwide locations, along with Grilled Cheese melt and a new selection of spring drinks.

HipDot x PEEPS is the Make Up Collab No One Expected This Season

Last fall, cosmetics brand HipDot had an unexpected partnership with Tapatio Hot Sauce to launch a line of products no one imagined would have happened. 

Now, HipDot is at it again with another tasty brand: PEEPS.

Yep, those colorful marshmallow-filled birds will now be a part of an exclusive cosmetic line similar to last year’s Tapatio launch. 

Items available for this launch include PEEPS Eyeshadow Palette, PEEPS Sponge Set, and a combination of the eyeshadow and sponge set. There will also be a few other surprise items dropping sometime later this month. 

Aside from Candy Corn, I can’t think of another confection that’s as polarizing as PEEPS. Either you love them, or you hate them. 

Still, this collection’s vibrant palettes derived from the PEEPS aesthetic seem like a perfect fit ahead of the Easter season. 

You can find the collection at HipDot.com and Ulta.com starting March 2.

Cheez-It Launches New Cheesy Loaded Popcorn Snacks

Snack aisle popcorn definitely has its convenience. If I’m invested in something on TV, there’s a pretty slim chance I’ll want to wait for my popcorn to finish in the microwave. However, the only caveat is if I’m not making microwave popcorn, my snack bag needs to be pre-loaded with some kind of flavor outside of just plain salt.

Cheez-It has just released a new Loaded Popcorn line that packs just as much, if not more, cheese as its cracker predecessor.

The two flavors released are Cheez-It Loaded Cheddar Popcorn and Cheez-It Loaded White Cheddar Popcorn.

Arguably the best part of any cheese dusted popcorn is the layer of cheese crust that develops on your fingers once you’re halfway through the bag. Delicious.

Cheez-It Loaded Popcorn has been gradually rolling out to store snack aisles nationwide through February. The snack bags will be available for a limited time.

Hi-C Orange Lavaburst FINALLY Returns To McDonald’s

One of my fondest memories of working at McDonald’s was those lunch breaks where I could fill up endlessly on Hi-C Orange Lavaburst. Paired with my staple: Two Cheeseburgers, add Big Mac Sauce, add Bacon; the diet that makes my thirty-something self shiver brought so much happiness to teenage Pete.

In 2017, McDonald’s took the beverage off restaurant menus, replacing it with Orange Fanta or something. My heart couldn’t be bothered to care at that point.

However, after years of fans petitioning, the Golden Arches has announced they’re finally bringing back the quintessential fast-food orange drink to their stores.

Hi-C Orange Lavaburst is scheduled to make its return to McDonald’s this year, with the plan to be available nationwide by the summer.

Eager fans can also track McDonald’s progress with the Hi-C Orange Tracker feature, keeping them updated weekly on which restaurant locations are already offering the beverage.

Throwing Magic Shells on top of ice cream is one of the more fantastical memories of my youth, hearkening back to after-school snacks in front of the TV set.

Smucker’s has introduced a new flavor to their Magic Shell lineup that encapsulates just that magic.

The new Unicorn Magic Shell features the rich taste of white cupcakes paired with multicolored sparkles. Like all its predecessors, the new Magic Shell is to be poured on top of your ice cream. It’ll then instantly harden, creating a sweet casing that can be cracked open and enjoyed with your dessert.

You can find the new Unicorn Magic Shell in stores nationwide now.
