Kinda Cool: Sonic Doing Garlic Parmesan and Bacon Cheese Bread Buns


For a limited time, America’s Drive In is performing a bit of kitchen wizardry by sprinkling cheddar and parmesan on top of their hot dog buns before baking. Crazy, we know. Because apparently nothing goes better with half-price Sonic summer milkshakes than “cheesy bread dogs: Cheese that’ll bring you to your knees.”

Two concoctions comprise the line-up this time around. There’s an Ultimate Cheese & Bacon CBD, a beef dog artfully bedazzled with cheddar cheese sauce and bacon bits. And then there’s the Garlic Parmesan CBD; same treatment, but with garlic parm sauce and grilled onions.

Normally we’re not too crazy about such minor (and such uninspired) upgrades, but we figure this is the closest we’ll get to deepthroating a cheese-flavored condom. Don’t pretend you wouldn’t be excited too.

Holy Moly, This Domino’s Pizza Has Cheese Buns for Crust


That’s right, it’s time for our weekly ugh-why-cant-the-US-have-any-of-the-nice-things cry sesh. Today’s topic? Pizza. Specifically, Domino’s Pizza. Even more specifically, Domino’s Pizza with cheese buns instead of cardboard for the crust. Ugh, WHY can’t the U.S. have any of the nice things? Waaaaahhh.

It’s another odd World Cup tie-in that the red and blue pizza chain is offering in South Korea, named the Churrasco Cheese Roll. In Brazil, “churrasco” is a general term for barbecue, and refers to the pizza’s topping of chimichurri-seasoned steak, along with mozzarella, gouda, sun-dried tomatoes, mango habanero sauce, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms, reports Brand Eating.

Most exciting though are pull apart cheese buns that make up the crust. Each looks kind of like a deviled egg and is decked in a layer of cheese sauce and bacon bits. We’re not sure how “Brazilian” it is, but we’ll go ahead and take a brazillion.
