It’s an unusual week in that no new fried chicken sandwiches seem to have been introduced. However Arby’s has introduced seasonal fried turkey sandwiches, Cotton Patch Café has a fried pork sandwich and Velvet Taco’s Weekly Taco Feature has fried chicken, as well as mashed potatoes and gravy.
There are a lot of new sweet drinks, including milkshakes from Steak ’n Shake, Chick-fil-A and Wayback Burgers, coffee drinks from PJ’s coffee and a line of drinks with brown sugar boba at Kung Fu Tea. Jamba Juice and Tropical Smoothie Café both have new smoothies.
Elsewhere in desserts, Sweet Paris has a green crêpe decorated like a Christmas tree, but called The Grinch, TGI Fridays is featuring Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro’s Rainbow Cake, Corner Bakery has miniature Bundt cakes and MOD Pizza has a new Squad Cake, proceeds of which go to its employee relief fund.
Moe’s Southwest Grill is bringing back its chile con queso for the rest of the year, Sajj Mediterranean Grill has a whole new line of mezze, or appetizers, and Del Taco is celebrating the holidays early with a lineup of festive tamales.
