Just had an Oak Peppermint Twist. Guess what? It tastes like Peppermint Twist!

It's pretty good.

Y know what I want.
I want 3 timeouts and 4 rainbow paddle pops.

But I am too tired to go to the shops, so I’m gonna lay here for 5 hours thinking about how I want paddle pops and chocolate.

I haven't had Pizza Hut since the 90s. It seemed like they closed a lot of their stores in Australia in the early 2000s and Dominos took over.

I haven't had Dominos for ages either.

That’s funny to hear someone say they haven’t seen Pizza Hut in decades since we usually have it once a month. And we always order the same thing: a BBQ Meat Lovers pizza and a Taco pizza.

They no longer have the Taco pizza in my area. You can only get BBQ, Hawaiian (yuck), Buffalo chicken and chicken & bacon.

Must be a regional thing, because I don't remember ever seeing taco pizza at the Hut. Godfather's was the ones with taco pizza (thanks Herman Cain).

I stopped getting Pizza Hut delivery when Domino's came out with the 5-5-5 deal in the mid-2000s. I'll always miss eating the Hut buffet for Sunday lunch after a night of drinking. They have the best breadsticks aside from Crazy Bread from Little Caesar's.

It's dumb as shit. The only thing special about it is they give you BBQ sauce to dip your fries in. And its not even good sauce.

I'd drink it, but I don't want to eat at Red Lobster :olol: I've had a Baja Blast Freeze with vodka in it, and that was tasty

I have a new pizza place.
Still local, but cheaper (by 50 cents for a large 18”) faster thanks to brand new ovens that can smash a pizza through in 4 minutes.
And the kicker is: they have a pizza called the super burger.
It is the best thing in the world, even better than Spaghetti Pizza from my former pizza shop.
Thin layer of sauce, then fistfuls of Ham, Bacon, Onion, Beef, Salami, Egg, BBQ Sauce and Cheese

Put in a big order during peak the other night.. 4 large and a small, and it was done in 15 minutes.
Single pizza last night from placing the call it was in my hands in 8 minutes....
This is quality pizza that leaves me full at 3/4 of the way through 1 in the same time it takes dominos to cook a frozen supermarket pizza...

And their chicken supreme, mighty mushroom, cheese burger and mighty meatballs pizzas are phenomenal as well.

For me not to be able to complete a reasonably priced single large pizza in one sitting is probably the best compliment any pizza place can receive.

Only downside with this new place is the lack of aforementioned spaghetti pizza and that this place doesn’t do kebabs, Parmas or Gelatti.

But for food this amazing, it’s a small price to pay.
