This week, KFC’s new fried chicken and donuts launched in participating stores nationwide. The chicken and donuts come in a basket or as a sandwich if you prefer to eat on the go. From what I have heard, this is much different than KFC’s attempt at chicken and waffles. The warm, glazed donut accents the crispy chicken tenders. KFC reports that the chicken and donut combo is available for a limited time, so get yours before it’s too late!
Matcha Lattes Now Available at Dunkin’
I will preface this by saying I’m not the biggest fan of matcha drinks. Something about the earthiness of the green tea just does not do it for me. However, matcha has become increasingly more popular at places like Starbucks and now Dunkin’ is trying to steal a portion of those profits. The new Matcha Latte at Dunkin’ is available hot, iced, or frozen. Try one today at a Dunkin’ near you.
Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew in Cans
Bad news for my caffeine addiction; Starbucks launched their new Nitro Cold Brew coffee drinks. As @candyhunting reported, these coffee drinks come in three varieties: Vanilla Sweet Cream, Black, and Dark Caramel. If these drinks are anything like the Nitro Cold Brew at Starbucks, I am worried. Nitro makes me so jittery that I can only drink small amounts, but I’m more than willing to give these a try.
In the latest of brand partnerships, Supreme teamed up with Oreo to bring consumers a Supreme Oreo cookie. The Oreo cookie will now take on a red hue synonymous with the luxury brand. One pack of three Supreme Oreos will retail for a whopping $8 as reported by multiple sources. I’m not on the Supreme hype train so you can definitely count me out on this one. Excuse me while I go buy a full size pack of Oreos for $3.
Dunkin’ Donuts in Chocolate Form
Dunkin’ Donuts plans to expand further into the candy arena with their new coffee bars. At 210 calories a pop, these creamy coffee treats combine chocolate and caffeine. It appears the coffee bars will be available in four flavors: Original, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Caramel. I am curious to try a candy bar that, “Looks like chocolate [and] Tastes like coffee.” For the amount of calories per bar, I may just opt for a regular latte instead.
Bring on the Hidden Valley Ranch Secret Sauce
Hidden Valley Ranch is bringing out the big guns with the new secret sauce. There are three varieties including original, smokehouse, and spicy. I wonder if this will be like any other secret sauce which usually tastes like thousand island dressing. Nevertheless, I am here for it. These sauces will hit Walmart stores beginning April 2020.
