Domino’s Is Training Reindeer To Deliver Pizza In The Snow [WATCH]

Domino’s Pizza in Japan is seriously training reindeer to run around in the snow and learn routes like a delivery boy.

Yeah, there’s no way animal activists are going to let this fly, but according to CNN, the training is real, with video footage to prove it:

Domino’s is conducting its training sessions at a driving school lot, in the coldest region of Japan. They’re testing the reindeer delivery speed, which can reach up to 50 mph, plus they’ve attached GPS devices so customers can track their pizza.

They probably figured they could give their usual delivery drivers a break from the cold, and send out an animal that not only thrives when traveling in snow due to its hooves, but also has delivering in its bloodline thanks to Santa Clause’s transportation methods.

There’s very little reason to believe this would actually work, so as cool as it would be to see a reindeer at your door step, don’t expect this to be the future of delivery. Especially when Domino’s has tested drone delivery, which sounds a little more plausible.

We can still dream of a day where we walk up to our door, greet the majestic reindeer, and leave him a candy cane tip (What do reindeer eat anyway?).

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.

Reindeer Paté

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history… as some pretty delicious paté. Well, according to the packaging it says that it was made from a relative of the reindeer that saved Christmas, and I suppose that should suffice.

Specifically, it’s made from select cuts of Swedish Arctic Reindeer meat, cognac, and spices. After all, nothing says Christmas like Rudolph, therefore nothing says Christmas dining like some Red-nosed paté. “Delicious served on hut buttered toast with a glass of brandy!” ($25 @ Firebox)
