During the 2013 Super Bowl, Pizza Hut announced their newest creation: Pizza Hut Sliders. On their Facebook page, they said that they would reveal their creation and give away free samples of it if and only if the quarterback said “hut”. Ho ho ho, I see what you did there Pizza Hut, such a clever pizza chain! And of course, the resulting new food item is equally as clever.
What on earth is a Pizza Hut slider? Sliders are like regular-sized food for little people. They are smaller versions of their larger, full-sized counterparts. The Pizza Hut Sliders are mini pizzas about 3.5 inches in diameter. They come in an order of 9 sliders at the price of $10 or an order of 3 sliders for $5.
The Pizza Hut Sliders can be customized to the customer’s choosing – up to 3 toppings may be chosen for each slider. I suppose if you wanted to be a douche to the Pizza Hut employee you could order different toppings on all 9 sliders, but I imagine most people will only want 2 or 3 topping variations in their box of sliders. The main draw of the Pizza Hut Sliders is that they allow a healthy mixing of toppings without worrying about toppings mixing into other sliders.
One Pizza Hut Slider is approximately equivalent to one slice of a medium Pizza Hut pizza, and the entire box is roughly equivalent to a large Pizza Hut pizza.
Although not the most groundbreaking idea in the pizza world, the Pizza Hut Sliders look like an interesting way to share pizza at parties, or feel like you’re getting way more pizza than you actually did.
