Major fast food chains including Dunkin ‘, Wendy’s, and Papa John’s added a variety of new menu items nationwide in October to attract attention and customers.
Kentucky Fried Chicken
This new recipe features a “sweeter, tighter mix with smoky kisses”. KFC says it tested 50 iterations of the recipe before settling on this one, which was developed before the pandemic. Other sauces, such as BBQ honey, ranch, and hot sauce, were also changed.
The change in “Finger Lickin ‘Good” sauce came a few weeks after the use of the same slogan was stopped amid the pandemic.
McDonald’s is adding new bakery items for the first time in nearly a decade. Starting Wednesday, McCafé’s line of bakeries is expanding with three new choices: apple fritters, blueberry muffins and cinnamon rolls.
Papa John’s is the second major pizza chain to launch pizza cheeseburgers. It features “large servings of seasoned beef, melty cheese, zesty pickles and signature burger sauce.”
The chain launched the Classic Chicken Sandwich, which features fried chicken fillets that are crisper and fresher than its predecessor and topped with mayo, tomato wedges, lettuce and pickles – all on toast.
The sandwich replaces the Homestyle Chicken Sandwich, which needs to be upgraded given increased competition. A new sandwich is available now for $ 4.99.
