They launched a web store with an array of accessories for the Ranch-obsessed, the cutest of which is a Hidden Valley RANCH FOUNTAIN. We procured ourselves their branded fondue fountain, along with 6 bottles of the liquid white, a couple racks of pizza, bread sticks and meatballs:
Within minutes of posting to our Facebook and Instagram, hundreds of polarized comments came rolling in.
Ranch fanatics supported the fountain in droves, with people like Philmore Papafingers claiming “I’ll bathe in it.” Some others saw the site of that much ranch as revolting and “disgusting.” Commenter David Wurtinger chimed in, “I once loved ranch until I saw this.”
Our office had a great deal of fun with it, though we immediately wished we had placed an order of chicken wings for this guy. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow’s Foodbeast lunch.
Those who lost their shit when Doritos announced their new Loaded cheese products should prepare to clench once again. Joining the existing Jalapeño Cheddar and Nacho Cheese flavors will be Doritos Loaded’s new Cool Ranch snack.
According to our pal over at JunkBanter, the new item features a medley of cheeses including mozzarella, Monterey, cheddar, and cream cheese tucked inside a crispy Doritos Crust. The crust is seasoned with the same spices one would find on the classic Cool Ranch Doritos chip.
Customers just have to pop them into the microwave and they’ll be good to snack on in a couple of minutes.
The Impulsive Buy confirms that you can now find them at select Walmart locations. For sure gonna try to grab a box during our lunch break.
What: For National Chicken Wing Day, Hooters will be offering all-you-can-eat wings for $12.99-$14.99 depending on location. Guests can also vote on which wings they prefer: left (drumsticks) or right (flat wings). Personally, we think any chicken wing is perfect.
Other topics of debate during the wing vote are: Ranch vs. Bleu Cheese, Smoked vs. Crispy and Sweet vs. Spicy.
Where: Any participating Hooters location.
When: July 28 and July 29 from 11am to 4pm.
UPDATE: We found out that only non-franchised Hooters of America locations honor both days. While some franchises will still sell you all-you-can-eat wings on the 28th, you’ll have to call ahead to ask. Here’s a Hooters locator in case you’re interested in going after some wings.
You can’t go to Outback Steakhouse without getting their iconic Bloomin’ Onion. We actually think people associate the popular side dish with the restaurant more than steak. Well, Outback’s adding a new take on their classic plate of fried onions. They’re loading them up.
The new Loaded Bloomin’ Onion is a regular Bloomin’ Onion topped with Loaded Aussie Cheese Fries. Those are topped with melted Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese with a sprinkle of chopped up bacon. They’re served with Outback’s bloom sauce and a spicy ranch dressing.
Outback’s new item will only be available for a limited time during the restaurant chain’s “Big Australia” promotion. Other new items include an 18-oz Center Cut Sirloin, Béarnaise Jumbo Shrimp-topped Filet and a Giant Crab-stuffed Lobster Tail.
While they’ve only released “Part 1” of the Wendy’s series, the two guys tackle quite a few popular items from the inexpensive fast food menu. This includes dipping sauces (BBQ, Ranch and Honey Mustard), Chicken Nuggets, the Spicy Chicken Go Wrap and the Value Chicken Sandwich.
Guess they wanted to get all the chicken recipes out the way.
We expect to see them make a Frosty and possibly Wendy’s famous chili in the follow up, which we’ll update the article with once it drops.
Hey, Internet. It’s been another crazy week here in the world of food news. If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with that’s going on, worry not, the Katchup is live once again.
This week we talk about McDonald’s filing for a simpler new slogan. Someone posted a photo of a pastrami pizza with an everything crust that has us drooling on Instagram. A fast food manager got so steamed, he knocked out a customer.
Finally, Roscoe’s house of Chicken & Waffles is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Worry not, however, cause one celebrity’s got a plan to save it.
Check out, our weekly Katchup.
McDonald’s new slogan
It seems like the days of McDonald’s popular slogan, “I’m Lovin’ It.” might soon be a thing of a past. The fast food burger company has filed to trademark an updated slogan. Read more.
Pastrami pizza with everything crust
Instagrammer @indulgenteats posted this mouth-watering photo of a Katz Deli pastrami pizza that features an everything crust.
Damn, what a beautiful sight.
Fast food manager knocks out customer
Here’s our shameless, “We know you like watching dudes get knocked out” post of the day. Posted to World Star Hip Hop a couple weeks ago, a customer at a fast food restaurant is shown yelling and squaring up to the worker behind the counter. Read more.
Snoop’s gonna save Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles
As you can imagine, there were plenty of emotional reactions over the news of East Coast Foods Inc., the parent company of Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, but none were as honest, or priceless, as Snoop Dogg’s. Read more.
Bottle of ranch dressing sold for $1000
A while back, a pizzeria made headlines after it started charging customers $1000 for some ranch dressing. While some like to enjoy dipping their pizza slices into the sweet and tangy buttermilk-based dressing, Cane Russo would rather have you eat their pizza as it is than request the addition. Read more.
A while back, a pizzeria made headlines after it started charging customers $1000 for some ranch dressing. While some like to enjoy dipping their pizza slices into the sweet and tangy buttermilk-based dressing, Cane Russo would rather have you eat their pizza as it is than request the addition.
So they “jokingly” started adding a $1,000 bottle of ranch to the menu for customers.
Last week, a tragic fire burned down the Human Society of Southeast Texas and killed 74 dogs.
Cane Rosso decided to hold a fundraiser to help the shelter, reports the Dallas Observer. Among those who pitched in for the Humane Society was meat shop and restaurant Caviar who purchased the infamous bottle of Ranch dressing that’s been sitting on Cane Rosso’s shelf for years.
The restaurant posted a photo on Facebook, seen above, with the caption:
Some men just wanna watch the world burn…WE JUST SOLD OUR FIRST BOTTLE OF RANCH DRESSING!! Big ups to the boys at Caviar for dropping a cool $1000 to help the Humane Society of Southeast Texas. Josh, you disgust me, but you’re alllllriiight.
Another bottle of Ranch will more than likely find a home on that display case sometime in the near future.
Glad to see a community come together for a cause in need. We talk about it more on this week’s Katchup.
As if Del Taco’s Buck & Under menu wasn’t already gansgta enough, they went and made some serious improvements to a few of their current options. I can actually feel my wallet getting heavier just typing this.
The relatively new Chicken Rollers have been revamped to include two new varieties, a Ranch Chicken Roller and a Chipotle Chicken Roller. Both are made with freshly grilled chicken and spicy Jack cheese; however, one includes creamy ranch sauce while the other boasts a tangy chipotle sauce, respectively.
Even with the addition of the newest members to the “value eating” family, guests can purchase all 16 items on the menu for just under $15.
At such an affordable price, you would be able to easily feed a family of 3-4, unless everyone in your family is a marijuana connoisseur, then maybe just one person.
