International Fast Food Offers Winter Whopperland, Pizzas Topped With Pizzas

double_deckerLooking at the offerings of American fast-food eateries abroad is a double-edged sword. It’s fascinating. Some of these items might show up on menus stateside, and others might never come here.

It’s unlikely, for example, that the emmental cheese bites and hot dessert waffles (with ice cream, in the United Kingdom) that Burger King is offering for the holiday season will make it stateside. On the European continent, this festival is called “Cheesemas.” In the U.K., it’s “Whopper Wonderland.” No matter where you are, it’s delicious.


I am going to start celebrating Cheesemas right now. Maybe as the day before Festivus.


Meanwhile, in Singapore, Pizza Hut is building pizzas to the skies. Kind of. The Double Decker pizza starts with a regular stuffed-crust pizza, since that’s apparently Pizza Hut’s thing now. Then they top that pizza with another pizza. The top pizza is an exotic one, with Edam cheese, tomatoes, zucchini, and mango-flavored mayonnaise.
