Pizza Hut knows that many Americans will be glued to various screens this summer, watching their team compete in the Rio Olympics. All that cheering and patriotism can be hungry work, so Pizza Hut has come up with an answer: a two-foot long pizza in a patriotic box.
Here’s the latest from the To-Go Food Overreaction File: Police in New York arrested a woman yesterday for smashing her car into a Pizza Hut after the eatery reportedly lost her order. [More]
The prison inmate who managed to give his guards the slip while they were stopped at a Pizza Hut grabbing food in Georgia has been nabbed in Indiana, police say. Considering that’s where he was headed anyway, it all kind of works out, doesn’t it?
Everyone knows that rumble in your stomach that means that it’s time to eat, but federal prison guards ended up paying a hefty price for allaying their hunger pangs pizza, after a shackled inmate managed to escape while the transport van was stopped at a Georgia Pizza Hut.
There’s only so much you can do with a pizza before it becomes something that doesn’t even resemble a pizza — there’s a fine line between novelty food and monstrosities like the cheeseburger crust creation. But things like sauce, crust and cheese are pretty safe bets, so far as widespread appeal goes, which is perhaps why Pizza Hut is tripling down on the dairy and introducing a 3-Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza.

Yesterday, we shared the news that the grease-filled sunflower known as the Cheeseburger Pizza made its way from Pizza Hut Middle East to Pizza Hut UK. We focused on its awesomeness and calorie content, but as with all heavily-promoted fast foods, the real question is this: how terrible does it look in real life? [More]
Almost a year and a half ago, the unholy spawn of a pizza and a platter of cheeseburger sliders arrived in Pizza Hut outlets in the Middle East. It’s a stuffed-crust pizza, but with little mozzarella-topped burgers embedded in the crust. The whole thing looks like a grease-filled sunflower. [More]
We’re sorry, Canada. We share a dominant language and many aspects of our culture, but we didn’t mean to export the horror of redundant currency symbols. That’s the grammar abomination where someone uses both the symbol and word for a currency in the same sentence: for example, “$15 dollars.” After our rant on the subject earlier this week, reader Daniel pointed out its appearance in a current Pizza Hut promo in Canada.

We’ve mentioned it before and now Pizza Hut is proudly crowing over it again: The chain is laying claim to the honor of the first purchase ever made on the World Wide Web — a mushroom, pepperoni and extra cheese pizza back in 1994 — which brings up a good point: How much do any of us really know about the history of e-commerce? Take Consumerist’s quiz to find out. [More]
Sign-twirlers and flyer-distributors in sandwich boards are often viewed as occupying the lowest rung of the advertising ladder. But those guys have nothing on the poor sucker who has to stand outside Pizza Hut HQ in 97 degree weather dressed in faux royal guard garb — all to “protect” some royal baby cash-in promo. [More]
Filling out customer service surveys is scary. If some managers are to be believed, giving any score but an 11 out of 10 is effectively stealing food out of the mouths of employees’ families. Getting impossibly perfect stores is so important for some stores that they’ve resorted to bribing customers with coupons or freebies. That’s the case with Jared’s local Pizza Hut, which taped a note begging for perfect scores to his pizza box.
What you do in your personal time is totally your own business — collect toy ponies, worship at a Bill Pullman shrine, whatever floats your boat — but even if you’re not on the clock, you probably shouldn’t indulge in your favorite porn peccadilloes at your place of employment. Pizza Hut customers in Virginia are hot under the collar after claiming they caught a worker ogling naked ladies on his laptop at the eatery. [More]
We know that many of you were glaring jealously toward our neighbors to the north when Pizza Hut Canada announced its Eau de Pizza Hut scent last December. [More]
WC ordered a large and very delicious pizza from Pizza Hut. It was a huge Panormous pizza with four toppings. The pizza arrived with one of the toppings, no mozzarella cheese, and in a much smaller size. Well, no problem: a case like that means that he’ll get a refund, a free replacement pizza, or maybe even both. Right? [More]
Life can be dangerous for pizza delivery drivers, who are often carrying cash and food and rarely have anyone to protect them. Now a Pizza Hut employee in Maryland says he’s been pulled off deliveries because he used a tent pole to defend himself against a group of attackers. [More]
From ill-fitting ugly sweaters to that 50 States Coin Collecting Starter Kit, there are almost limitless options for what can count as a “lame” Christmas gift. The one thing they all have in common is you don’t want’em, and they’re a waste of space. But how about pizza? Do you want some pizza, would that ease the sting of disappointment? Pizza Hut thinks so, and is offering people gift cards to lessen the dissatisfaction that can occur in recipients of awful gifts. [More]
At what first glance appears to be one of those pre-made deli trays your office puts out when they force you to have a meeting through lunch (or your neighbors give you when your mother-in-law passes away), is actually a pizza. Or at least that’s what Pizza Hut Singapore alleges. [More]
