In other chicken news, Starbird has new nuggets, Chester’s and Bonchon both have new sauces, and Chick N Max has Jamaican jerk chicken.

Burger King is testing its Angry Whopper, a spicy variation of its signature burger first introduced in 2009, but this time it’s only in Columbus, Ohio, for now.

Jack in the Box is reprising its Monster Taco as Halloween approaches, but this time it’s spicier than in the past. 

Papa Murphy’s has added monkey bread as a permanent addition to its take-and-bake menu, and Vitality Bowls now has Chia pudding.

It being September, there are a number of pumpkin-related items on the menu, this week from Black Bear Diner, Häagen-Dazs, Salata Salad Kitchen, and Turning Point as well as Snooze.

Miller’s Ale House is teaming up with celebrity, uh, well, just celebrity Kendall Jenner’s tequila brand.

Burgerville has sweet potato fries, Fatburger has jalapeño poppers, Handel’s has horchata ice cream, and Honeygrow has a miso garlic stir-fry.

Taco Cabana has a Frito quesadilla and Velvet Taco’s Weekly Taco Feature is based on the shrimp po boy sandwich.
