Popeyes Collabs With Megan Thee Stallion For New ‘Hottie Sauce’

Two cultural icons in Popeyes and Grammy-winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion have linked up to produce a new Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce.

The Hottie Sauce is just as saucy as Megan, I’m sure, as it hosts a mix of honey, cider vinegar, and Aleppo pepper, for added spice. Starting October 19, Hottie Sauce will be featured in Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches and Nuggets in the US and 14 other countries around the world.

It’s noted that this will be the first time Popeyes will offer another iteration of their iconic Chicken Sandwich, which is a true flex that Megan Thee Stallion should pop her collar for.

Yogurtland Now Has Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt

To be quite frank, I’ll always save room for milk tea and boba after a meal. It’s the post-dessert dessert, a sweet finish to wash down everything. Yogurtland’s newest offering circumvents this whole process for me with their new Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt. Let’s just get straight to the milk tea by making it your dessert, efficiency people, it’s a wonder.

The classic boba drink flavor is a perfect pairing with Yogurland’s limited time only Rainbow Jellies topping, which I’m sure makes for a sweet and refreshing treat with each scoop.

This Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt is available only at participating locations, while supplies last.

Domino’s Australia Debuts New Cheesy Vegemite Pizza

Vegemite is an iconic Australian food spread that’s made from leftover brewer’s yeast extract. The flavor of Vegemite can best be described as an intensely savory and salty smack to your palate.

Though the condiment can be quite polarizing to folks outside of Australia, locals swear by it. Domino’s Pizza locations in the Land Down Under are catering to Aussie tastebuds with the debut of a new Cheesy Vegemite Pizza, which pairs the iconic Australian condiment with melty mozzarella.

The limited-edition pizza carries a suggested price of $7.95 AUD, or about $5.84 USD and will be available for only three weeks.

Heinz Ketchup Has a ‘Tomato Blood’ Costume Kit for Halloween

It’s easy to see why ketchup has long been mimicked as blood. The red condiment is an effective stand in, really, and earns its stunt double reputation especially around Halloween.

Capitalizing on this, Heinz just launched a limited-edition Tomato Blood Costume Kit to amp up everyone’s Halloween costumes and vibes.

The Tomato Blood Costume Kit is made up of a Tomato Blood Ketchup bottle, face paint, applicators, stick-on tattoos, vampire fangs, and more. In addition, Heinz is leaning further into the Halloween spirit by building a branded Halloween Store pop-up in Los Angeles, where fans can cop Heinz Halloween products and can even enhance their costumes at interactive “drip stations.”

If you’re looking to have a bloody good time with this costume kit, head on over to the Heinz Halloween website to purchase.

The brand describes the new offering as having “a great-tasting crunchy center covered in delicious milk chocolate, all wrapped in the colorful, iconic M&M’S candy shell.”

Foodbeast and Pieology Link Up to Create A Western BBQ Pizza

In the long history of fast food, few burgers have had quite an impact and unique flavor than a Western BBQ Cheeseburger. The tangy hit of barbecue sauce, the scintillating crunch of fried onion rings, and the luscious ooze of melty cheese make for one memorable burger — each and every time you order it.

Foodbeast recognizes the legend that is the Western BBQ Cheeseburger, but since we always take pleasure in amping up our food experiences, we thought, ‘How awesome would it be to have a Western BBQ Cheeseburger in pizza form?’

We must have been thinking out loud because custom pizza innovator, Pieology Pizzeria, seemingly heard us and said, “We got you fam.” The result: The limited-time Foodbeast Western BBQ Pizza. This pie is loaded in true Foodbeast form, boasting a one-of-a-kind bbq sauce and ranch base, melty mozzarella cheese, crispy bacon, juicy meatballs, crunchy French’s fried onions, and topped with a zesty bbq sauce drizzle. Yee-freakin’-haw.

Pull up to your local Pieology and ask for the Foodbeast Western BBQ Pizza starting October 12 and see for yourself just how deliciously crucial fusing a Western BBQ Cheeseburger with a Pieology pizza really is. Available at all locations nationwide for a limited time.

Created in partnership with Pieology.
