Jack In The Box Wants To Make ‘Brunchfast’ Happen

What is “brunchfast”? The marketers over at Jack in the Box, the company that recently trademarked the term, could probably tell us, but they aren’t talking. Is it serving typical brunch foods incredibly early in the day? Is it a second breakfast eaten later in the day, but not on the weekend so it would be weird to call it brunch? A fast-food company is trying to invent a new meal, but won’t explain what it is until its marketing campaign launches. [More]

In what seems to be an effort to carve itself a share of the fast food breakfast market, Subway is offering customers a free breakfast sandwich throughout the month of May. Getting that “free” food won’t be as easy as simply holding out your hand and saying “gimme,” however: you’ll either have to be the kind of person who likes to eat sub sandwiches before 9 a.m., or have a refrigerator to stash one until lunchtime, because the Subway deal is a buy-one-get-one situation: customers will get a six-inch savory breakfast sandwich “with the purchase of any of their favorite handcrafted subs” at participating locations.

Waffles Are Serious Business, So Which Makers Are The Best?

Waffles Are Serious Business, So Which Makers Are The Best?

I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m not a breakfast person. I know, that’s crazy. But I married into a breakfast family, and not just plain jane morning meal enthusiasts; we’re talking dedicated waffle fans. The waffle maker sitting in my cupboard is probably the only appliance my husband knows how to use, and finding that machine was a test of patience for yours truly.  [More]

Dunkin’ Donuts Has A Plan To Compete With McDonald’s: Pointing Out That It Also Serves Breakfast All Day

In October Dunkin’ Donuts admitted that it was “obviously” paying attention to McDonald’s all-day breakfast menu, but didn’t seem too worried.

McDonald’s Testing Mashup Between McGriddle And McChicken In Ohio

Last month, McDonald’s began testing the addition of the McGriddle to its all-day breakfast menu in Oklahoma. A group of operators for the fast food restaurant in Ohio have taken that idea and made it their own by piloting a union between the syrup-flavored breakfast item and the McChicken — a Chicken McGriddle.

Maybe Americans Are Eating Cereal Again After All

Maybe Americans Are Eating Cereal Again After All

Earlier this year, we reported that the cereal business in the United States is hurting, possibly because of protein-mania and Americans switching to other breakfast foods. One company that began to see signs of trouble was Cheerios-maker General Mills, which managed to cut costs and follow current food trends, boosting its profits. [More]

McDonald’s All-Day Breakfast Is Bringing Back Customers, But Don’t Expect Full Menu Anytime Soon

It’s been two months since McDonald’s began offering an all-day breakfast menu — which includes most popular early morning items, but not everything — nationwide. A new report indicates that the idea has been successful in luring back some lost McD’s customers, but not so successful that we’ll all be able to get McGriddles on our way home from work. [More]

McDonald’s Franchisees Aren’t Lovin’ The All-Day Breakfast Menu

While consumers might be excited to have the opportunity to order brenner (breakfast for dinner) when visiting McDonald’s after a long day of work, that doesn’t mean the people cracking eggs and flipping sausage patties are excited. In fact, franchisees say the rollout of McDonald’s all-day breakfast has been less “lovin’ it,” and more nightmare.  [More]

Lucky Charms Makes 10 Mythical All-Marshmallow Boxes

Lucky Charms Makes 10 Mythical All-Marshmallow Boxes

I recently learned that chocolate Lucky Charms exist. To be clear, that’s a special chocolate-flavored version of the cereal. With marshmallows in it. That shouldn’t really be an actual breakfast food, yet there it is on the shelf. The only thing wackier would be if there were a version containing nothing but marshmallows. Except that does exist, even outside of your dreams: General Mills is creating and giving away ten boxes in a promotion. [More]

Picture Vs. Reality: Shelf-Stable Breakfast Edition

When reader Nick bought his Bacon Scramble from Hormel Compleats, a line of shelf-stable prepared meals, he probably wasn’t expecting a colorful and beautiful gourmet experience. Food preservation technology is pretty impressive, but not that impressive. He wasn’t really expecting what he got when he opened the package, though, so he snapped a picture and sent it over to us.

McDonald’s All-Day Breakfast Menu Spotted In The Wild Ahead Of Nationwide Rollout

Despite the fact that McDonald’s new all-day breakfast menus are slated to roll out across the country on Oct. 6, it seems there could be a few locations who couldn’t wait: Consumerist reader Victor spotted an all-day breakfast menu at the drive-thru of his local Mickey D’s in Northern California this week, and sent in the evidence.
