Taco Bell

Are You Ready for the Dipping Taco?

If the Waffle Taco wasn’t wacky enough for you, Taco Bell has a new one for you called the dipping taco. Not technically its official name, the fast food chain says, as it reveals a new cadre of two offerings. One is called the Rolled Chicken Taco, and the partner is a new twist on the Crunchy Taco.

The Mexican fast food icon announced Thursday that this new menu — the first taco sold by Taco Bell built for dipping — will be rolled out nationwide on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

Fish and Chips

Long John Silver’s Refocuses on Fried Fish with a New $2.99 Offering

Long John Silver’s has introduced a new $2.99 two piece fish and chips meal.

After many years of broadly focusing on menu product variety, the venerable fish restaurant has been looking to employ new leadership to refocus the effort in rebranding with the original specialty of fried fish. Long John Silver’s has been boldly seeking a re-launch of the brand in 2014 with a healthier image. Earlier this year, the chain started a new promotion with the motto ‘think fish’, which included commercials with environmental messaging.

In a particular TV spot called ‘final frontier’, the narrator states, “Anyone ever heard of free range?” with pictures confined cows. “Get your next meal from the real frontier — fish sustainably harvested from the wildest place on earth.”

Could McDonald’s Be Rolling Out a McBrunch Menu for Millenials?

The stock exchange appears to be showing that McDonald’s must have something attention grabbing, innovative and appealing.
In July, the McDonald’s Corporation filed a federal trademark registration #86345988 for the term “McBrunch.” Millenials could possibly soon be feeding on breakfast products well past 10:30 am, most probably on weekends and holidays.
A McDonald’s spokesperson confirmed the application but informed, “We routinely file intent to use trademark applications as a regular course of business. We can’t share details at this time as to how the trademarks may or may not be used.”
“To be truthful, it’s been puzzling to see coverage of this because there is truly no news here,” wrote Lisa McComb, a company spokeswoman, in an email. “I understand the interest, because I, as a consumer, would love to get my beloved Egg White Delight or other breakfast items later, but we are not testing a McBrunch concept.”

McDonald’s Makes a Preemptive First Strike on a Junk Food Image

At a supper McDonald’s (MCD) hosted for correspondents and bloggers, waiters offered cuisine cooked by celebrity chefs using ingredients from the chain’s bill of fare.
A Kung Pao chicken appetizer was prepared with Chicken McNuggets drenched in sweet-and-sour sauce and garnished with parsley. Slow-cooked beef was provided with gnocchi designed out of McDonald’s french fries and a fruit sauce from its smoothie mix. For dessert, its biscuit mix was put to use to build a pumpkin spice “biznut,” a biscuit-doughnut hybrid.
The celebration, scheduled in New York City’s Tribeca community, was billed “A transforming dining experience of ‘fast food’ to ‘good food served fast.’ ” participants tweeted out pictures and the event was written up on a variety of websites.
The recipes aren’t meant for McDonald’s restaurants. As an alternative, the evening is part of a venture by McDonald’s to shake its notoriety for serving inexpensive, unhealthy food. At a time when Americans are paying closer attention to what they devour, the company is trying to sway open thought by first reaching out to the reporters, bloggers and other so-called “influencers” who communicate and speak about McDonald’s.
