Fast-Food Establishments Are Ready For Your Holiday Hustle
Let’s face it, eating is a main part of the next few holiday weeks. It’s celebrated, expected, and part of the accepted fun. Although many of your meals include gathering around a table at home during this time, the holiday season is also a popular time for fast-food establishments.
What are the reasons people frequent fast-food restaurants over the holiday months? Well, there are a few common answers. On the day before and after the big holiday, many folks prefer a quick and easy meal. Aside from the leftover turkey sandwich (one of the best meals of the year), nobody wants to put in too much preparation time for meals before and after the main event.
It’s more convenient to order a pizza on the days surrounding the holiday. Or, perhaps you have last-minute errands to run like heading to the liquor store to stock up your bar and wine collection. Well, on the way there’s a Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, and McDonalds. How about we grab a meal through the drive-through in an effort to multitask?
Fast-Food Chains Are Also Well-Prepared
In the past, certain chains specialize their holiday season menus. This is for two reasons. It’s to capitalize on the festive spirit and to meet the needs of those looking for the easy meal-to-go. Sure, there are the red holiday coffee cups, ginger bread everything, but here is a look at some unique items that Eat This, Not That has highlighted. These items have been on past holiday menus and are available this year as well.
- Mitten cookies at Panera Bread
- Peppermint Chip Milkshake at Chick-fil-A
- Triple Treat Box at Pizza Hut (Two pizzas, 5 breadsticks & your choice of an Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie or 10 Cinnabon Mini Rolls)
- Grilled Cheese Nacho Fries at Taco Bell, and a build-your-own meal for 4
- IHOP specialty pancakes and family feast boxes
So whether you are cruising around town finishing up last-minute shopping efforts, or glued to the couch watching football, there are plenty of fast-food establishments ready to hook you up this holiday season.
