Pizza Hut

On Sunday night, well over 100 million Americans tuned in to CBS to find the answer to what has been one of the most suspenseful questions in the country for weeks. Who would win the Super Bowl? Nah -- what was the secret new menu item Pizza Hut was planning to unveil during the Super Bowl?

The countrys biggest pizza chain aired a commercial right near the beginning of the game, which is embedded above, but it didnt actually reveal the identity of the menu item, which only heightened our anxiety. But now we now. The new item is... the Big Pizza Slider. Heres a glossy product shot from Yum Brands:

The mini-pizzas measure 3.5" across and are sold in boxes of three for $5 and boxes of nine for $10. They are available at Pizza Huts across the country starting today. The Sliders can be ordered with any of the normal Pizza Hut pizza toppings.

If youre curious about them but dont want to bet a Lincoln on your enjoyment of the Sliders, you can also try them out on Tuesday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., when Pizza Hut will be distributing them free of charge. Or you could take a hard look at that product shot, think about how big 3.5" is, and realize that Pizza Hut is basically trying to charge the country for English muffin pizzas. That might cut your curiosity short right away.

Doritos Locos tacos were a big winner this year, becoming Taco Bells best-selling product ever. It sold about 100 million in roughly 10 weeks, and its popularity hasnt dimmed yet.
