Menu Tracker: New items from Burger King, Pizza Hut, and Schlotzsky’s

Plus innovation from Buddy’s bar-b-q, Corner Bakery Cafe, Gong Cha, Jamba, Krispy Kreme, Mellow Mushroom, Pincho, Salad and Go, Seven Brothers, Shuckin’ Shack, Teriyaki Experience, Tous Les Jours, Urban Plates, Velvet Taco, and Wing Snob

Burger King is bringing back its patty melts, and augmenting the offering with a Philly cheesesteak inspired one. It’s also testing a fried chicken sandwich melt.

Pizza Hut is sort of getting in on the burger game with a folded item that’s similar to Papa Johns’ Papadia, but with burger fixin’s. Similarly, Pincho has a quesadilla burger.

Seven Brothers is celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with its Tama Samoa Burger.

Krispy Kreme is collaborating with Dolly Parton. There doesn’t seem to be any special reason behind that; it might just be that people love her.

Schlotzsky’s has three Italian-influenced sandwiches with pesto, and Salad and Go has a Caprese salad with a twist: The tomato comes from pico de gallo.

Mellow Mushroom is celebrating its 50th anniversary with some legacy items, Corner Bakery Cafe is having fun with chocolate and hazelnut, Gong Cha has Thai mango specials, Buddy’s Bar-b-q has pork nachos, and Teriyaki experience has “sushi bowls,” the Canadian chain’s version of chirashi.

Jamba has new watermelon smoothies, there are seasonal specials at Shuckin’ Shack, Tous Les Jours, and Urban Plates, Wing Snob sells mac & cheese now, and Velvet Taco’s Weekly Taco Feature is inspired by kung pao chicken.
