Pop-Tarts’ Newest Flavors Sound Like They Could Be Amazing, Or Disastrous

Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts have recently released their limited seasonal flavors, Frosted Pumpkin Pie Flavor and Frosted Cinnamon Roll and as you may have predicted, both are as delicious as they sound.

It’s hard for Pop-Tarts to go wrong.

That being said, it looks like they plan on releasing a couple questionable flavors in the form of Maple & Bacon and Pink Lemonade, according to The Impulsive Buy.

Food City, a grocery store chain in Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee, recently had their Food City Food Show, and one of the products on display were the newest Pop-Tarts.

There were four “new” flavors shown altogether, when you add in the Watermelon and Chocolatey Caramel, but those were really just older flavors that were discontinued, and are trying to make a comeback.

The Maple & Bacon, and Pink Lemonade are the brand new flavors that are intriguing.

While the Frosted Maple & Bacon flavor has potential, the Pink Lemonade flavor might be a little questionable. As much as I love pink lemonade on it’s own, the thought of a tart, tangy Pop-Tart could be a very risky play.

I guess we’ll see.

If they suck, I’m just going back to Pillsbury’s Toaster Strudels, because those are gangsta.

This Major Restaurant Chain Just Added Adorable Rudolph Christmas Pancakes

Dennys Xmas Breakfast

Fall festivities have barely started and Denny’s is gearing up for Christmas. We’re totally OK with that. The American diner chain has released three new breakfast dishes in the spirit of the winter holiday.

First up is the Rudolph Pancake Breakfast. It features two pancakes topped with turkey bacon antlers, whipped cream topped with chocolate for the eyes and nose. The dish comes with two eggs and hash browns.

The Pumpkin Pecan Pancake Breakfast boasts pumpkin pancakes featuring glazed pecans and topped with pecan pie sauce. It’s severed with two eggs, hash browns and choice of bacon or sausage.

A new savory skillet comes in the form of the Holiday Harvest Skillet which has a gouda-apple chicken sausage on top of seasoned red-skinned potatoes, grape tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, onions and bell peppers. It’s topped with a blend of Italian cheese and served with two eggs.

We’ve never been a fan of breakfast dishes that have faces on them. It makes it so much harder to stick cutlery in. Ah well, breakfast is breakfast.

The dishes are available now at participating Denny’s locations and will be served through Jan. 6, 2016.

Burger King Rocks New PUMPKIN SPICE OREO Shake

BK Pumpkin Spice Shake

Because it seems every fast food place needs some kind of pumpkin dish for the fall, Burger King has added a new Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake to its menu.

Brand Eating reports that the limited-time item boasts a pumpkin spice syrup that’s blended with an Oreo Shake. Unfortunately, that means there’s no real pumpkins in the beverage. Though I’m sure we’ll find a way to enjoy a fast food shake without actual pumpkins.

Patrons can find the shake priced $2.59 for a small 12-oz. The Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake will be available at all participating Burger King locations thorough the fall.

Hopefully, it won’t turn our poop orange.
