11 fast-food and brand-name matches made in heaven
Burger King + Bacon — Bacon SundaeTalk about a whopping combo. This sundae consists of vanilla soft serve, fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles, and a whole piece of thick-cut bacon. Granted, it also contai
Talk about a whopping combo. Granted, it also contains 510 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 61 grams of sugar, but what other fast-food restaurant offers meat-filled ice cream?
Dunkin Donuts + Oreo — Oreo Coolatta and Oreo Donut
What better a way to celebrate the 100th birthday of America’s favorite cookie than with an Oreo-flavored donut and an Oreo Coolatta to wash it all down? This is one snack worth investing nearly half of your daily value of saturated fat on.
Taco Bell + Doritos — Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme
Fine. We admit it: we wish theyd chosen Cool Ranch. But thats not the point this combo is hotter than Rihanna and Calvin Harris in "We Found Love."
Taco Bell + Fritos — Beefy Crunch Burritos
All it takes is $0.99 and you can have seasoned ground beef, rice, nacho cheese, sour cream, and Flamin Hot Fritos. The only thing that could make this mash-up any hotter is some Fire sauce.
7-Eleven + Coca-Cola — Coca-Cola Slurpee
This one goes down in history as one of the most solid collaborations since Ashanti and Ja Rule. Whats more, last year 7-Eleven joined Coca-Cola to help protect the polar bears by becoming a part of their "Arctic Home" campaign. This way, you can sip your icy drink and save the icy tundra all at the same time.
Sonic + Powerade — Powerade Mountain Blast Slush
Kudos, Sonic, for making the foray into the world of sports drinks with this collaboration. We know they have a drive-in, but maybe Sonic will consider a "run-in" option to draw in the athletic clientele for a taste of this icy drink.
Cold Stone + Oreo — Oreo Crème Filling Ice Cream
When you think of an Oreo, whats the draw? The chocolaty outside or the perfectly gooey, fluffy, white cream filling? We know where we stand. Thats why senior tastemaster for Cold Stone Creamery, Ray Karam, made a truly brilliant move when he asked Nabisco to send him just the cream filling, which he proceeded to mix with a sweet cream base to create what has been one of the most wildly popular Cold Stone flavors of all time.
White Castle + Kraft Bulls-Eye Original Barbeque Sauce — BBQ Sliders
Not to take the easy joke, but they really, you know, hit the bull's-eye with this one. Available for a limited time only, White Castle has teamed up with Kraft Bull's-Eye BBQ Sauce to bring back a favorite from a few years ago, the BBQ Pulled Pork Slider, plus they are introducing the new BBQ Bacon Chicken Slider made with hickory-smoked bacon and the Original BBQ Sliders, which include a beef patty drizzled with sauce and topped with crispy fried onions. So if you're looking to get saucy with these little sliders, hurry up, because they're only on the menu until Sept. 4.
Monopoly + McDonald’s, Plus Other Product Mash-Ups —McDonald's Monopoly
Food brands are not the only companies striking up partnerships with fast-food giants for promotional purposes. Kids meals are the most common place for corporations to push their new product, specifically when it comes to movies — think Batman action figures stuffed inside a Happy Meal to promote a recently released film. Another prime example is the partnership between McDonald's and Monopoly, which led to a wildly successful promotion that drove customers to purchase items for the chance to complete their Monopoly board and win prizes. Check out Food Products Inspired by Movies.
Cold Stone + Ghirardelli — Chocolate Ice Cream with Ghirardelli Caramel Squares
This is one collaboration we wish wed gotten to try before the limited-time offer ran out. Karam called it his "Chocolate Caramel Heaven Creation," made with chocolate ice cream, Ghirardelli caramel squares, and chocolate chips. Karam himself admits this was one of his favorite creations, claiming, "It takes me to my happy place."
