McDonald's latest addition to their line of burgers and the most interesting of the new Quarter Pounders is the Bacon Habanero Ranch Quarter Pounder. This spicy addition to the McDonald's menu consists of a Quarter Pounder patty, white cheddar cheese that McDonald's is including on everything lately, leaf lettuce, tomato, a new applewood-smoked bacon, and a spicy habanero ranch sauce all on a bakery-style bun with 8g of whole grains. I picked up the new burger for a fairly pricey $4.99.

McDonald's has pulled the plug on their Angus Third Pounders to make way for three new varieties of the Quarter Pounder. The Quarter Pounder is an iconic McDonald's burger that the company hasn't touched in decades. While not exactly clear cut as to why the company pulled the Angus Third Pounders off of their menu, it seems that part of the reason is due to the rising cost of beef prices.
Here's a look at the new varieties of Quarter Pounders that will be available as permanent replacements Continue reading [...]

As a part of Sonic's Summer of Shakes, one of the most controversial shakes is the new Peanut Butter and Bacon Shake.

I picked up a small shake for 1/2 off because I purchased it after 8pm, but the regular price is $2.49.
How Does It Taste?
I was quite intrigued by the Peanut Butter and Bacon Shake when Sonic announced their 25 flavors of shakes. The shake is the only one to feature real Continue reading [...]
The Sweet Potato Fries have made a limited time return to Burger King's summer menu. The Sweet Potato Fries are pretty much what the name implies: sweet potatoes that are sliced up and fried and then sprinkled with salt. I picked up a medium order of Sweet Potato Fries at my local BK for $2.29.
How Do They Taste?
Burger King (at least my Burger King) didn't skimp on the fries when it came to the portion size. The fries were completely packed into the container and falling out into the Continue reading [...]
Among Burger King's latest releases is a BK Rib Sandwich, a supposed McRib Killer. The new rib sandwich features a boneless rib patty, bread and butter pickles, and a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce served on a toasted artisan bun. I picked up the new Rib Sandwich for a fairly pricey $4.29.
How Does It Taste?
As much as I wish Burger King would stop releasing a million items at once and focus more on the quality of their food, sometimes their new items are quite intriguing. The Rib Sandwich Continue reading [...]
