Don't get me wrong — I'm a big fan of breakfast burritos, but I like the harder-to-find breakfast quesadilla even more. It just has that perfect ratio of crispy, browned tortilla, melty cheese, and eggs. Here's one that you can have pre-made in the freezer, so any weekday morning can start with a quesadilla.
Test markets for this new product, which are called “Grilled Dogs,” also had corn dogs available. Those didn’t make the national menu, but a chili cheese dog variation did. The “classic” hot dog comes topped with ketchup, mustard, onions, and relish, though you can probably order it without any of those items. I say this to avoid a ketchup-related holy war in the Consumerist newsroom.
“We’re applying over 60 years of flame-grilling expertise with the Whopper sandwich to make Grilled Dogs the next great American icon,” says Alex Macedo, the president of Burger King North America, said in a statement, even though dressed hot dogs and chili dogs are already American icons in their own right.
We asked Burger King about that hot dog from decades past. “This is the first time BK is launching a grilled hot dog in the United States nationally,” a representative told us, which means that either the older hot dog wasn’t grilled, wasn’t available nationally, or was neither.
RIP iphone DEV
We are deeply saddened by the news that our member, colleague, and friend Ben “bushing” Byer passed away of natural causes on Monday, February 8th.
Many of you knew him as one of the public faces of the iPhone Dev Team, Team Twiizers and fail0verflow.
Outspoken but never confrontational, he was proof that even in the competitive and oftentimes aggressive hacking scene, there is a place for both a sharp mind and a kind heart.
To us he was, of course, much more. He brought us together, as a group and in spirit. Without him, we as a team would not exist. He was a mentor to many, and an inspiration to us all.
Yet above anything, he was our friend. He will be dearly missed.
Our thoughts go out to his wife and family.
Keep hacking. It’s what bushing would have wanted.
what is this? january?
In late January, the DeLorean Motor Company surprised us all by announcing that they will be building a limited number of new DeLorean DMC-12 replica automobiles to sell in 2017. They also recently released a new commercial, titled “Lucky Coin,” that follows a young man who stumbles upon a DeLorean. The man gets in through the gull-wing door and cruises around a canyon before hopping out and throwing a half dollar coin from 1982 over a cliff. 1982 was the year that the DeLorean Motor Company went bankrupt.
