Pizza Hut Pizza Now Comes With Bowls Of Cheese
It’s official: Pizza Hut wants to clog your veins and kill you… at least that what it feels like after they announced their new “Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza” (and don’t get me started on that name)
What’s new? Attached to each slice are two crust bowls filled with five different types of cheese which amount to about 20-grams-of-fat-per-slice.
Each of the 16 bread cups contains a mix of asiago, romano, fontina, provolone and mozzarella cheese… which doesn’t sound bad unless you want more than one slice.

Watch Heidi Klum Seduce You With A Burger (video)
Heidi Klum is the latest babe featured in a Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s commercial
The ad takes the fast food chain’s typical formula — blonde model, bathing suit, massive hamburger — and gives it a theme: “The Graduate.”
“Basically, I am Mrs. Robinson and I am seducing this cute little boy… with my burger,” says Heidi in the behind-the-scenes video (below). “I shove the burger in his mouth in a sexy way.” As the commercial’s creative director Mick DiMaria put it, “We’re basically taking that scene and foodifying it.”
Twinkies May Have New Home, Could Be Back Soon
Good news everyone! Twinkies will be back before you know it.
If all goes according to plan, our beloved Twinkies could be back in stores within months. Hostess has canceled today’s auction for its brands and facilities and will sell them to Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co., investment firms that bid $410 million.
Now the companies, which the Times describes as having “a shared history of corporate turnarounds,” await court approval; a hearing is due March 19. As for what this turnaround could look like, the would-be owners gave a few hints: Twinkies in more stories, 100-calorie options, and Zach Galifianakis as potential spokesman.
“We would hope to have this wonder product back on the shelf by early this summer,” says a spokesman for Metropoulos, which owns Pabst Blue Ribbon and Vlasic pickles and whose head, C. Dean Metropolous, is poised to be the new CEO for the snacks.
KFC Will Lick Your Mashed Potatoes… At Least This Woman Would (pic)
A KFC employee was fired after posting a photo on Facebook of her licking a tub of mashed potatoes.

The photo made its way to the Facebook page of WJHL News Channel 11 in Johnson City, Tenn. As the photo gained traction, WJHL reached out to KFC to learn more. Spokesman Rick Maynard responded that the food was never served to customers and both the employee in the photo and the employee that took the photo have been terminated.
I don’t know about you, but I rather have this girl lick my mashed potatoes than getting this nugget.

The company is letting potato chip lovers decide which one of the three new flavors stays while all of them will be sold at retailers nationwide starting next week. After trying them, fans have until May to vote for their favorites. The flavor with the most votes will stay on store shelves.

Fans will have three ways to vote for their favorites. They can do it though Lay’s Facebook page, by texting “VOTE” to 24477 or through Twitter using the hashtags (hash)SaveChickenWaffles, (hash)SaveGarlicBread or (hash)SaveSriracha.
The person who submitted the winning flavor will win $1 million, or one percent of the chip’s 2013 sales, whichever is more. The runners-up will win $50,000… but lets face it, chicken and waffles are here to stay.
Today: Free Pancakes At IHOP!
Free pancakes for everyone!
IHOP is bringing back free pacake day for the eighth year in a row this week. On the night of Tuesday, Feb. 5 (AKA National Pancake Day to those in the know), the chain will be distributing free plates of IHOP pancakes to all diners between the hours of 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
IHOP’s free pancake giveaway is designed to lure customers into the chain’s 1500-plus locations to get them to donate money to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for the pediatric cancer center’s 30th birthday. IHOP hopes that its free pancake-based fundraising will generate a total of at least $3 million for sick kids.
IHOP says that it has raised an impressive $10 million for charity since it started offering free pancakes every year on National Pancake Day.
New At Burger King? Horse Meat!
Yes… Burger King has admitted that some of its burgers were, in fact, tainted with horsemeat.
But before you swear off whoppers for good, don’t panic: It only happened with burgers sold in the U.K. and Ireland. It’s suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which worked with all the companies in question, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.
Burger King had originally stressed that its patties are made with 100 percent beef, although it later dropped Silvercrest, the food processing plant that received meat from the Polish distributor.
Burger King released a statement:
“Our independent DNA test results on product taken from restaurants were negative for any equine DNA. However, four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA. Within the last 36 hours, we have established that Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland. They promised to deliver 100% British and Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them.”
