We don't normally consider pizza fast food here on FastFoodSource. But a recent trend is bringing super-fast preparation to the pizza space. Reader Avery K. from Indian Wells, California recently tried one such concept and here's her review.

mcdonalds chicken artisan sandwich

As we said in 2016, one of the fast food trends to watch for is more descriptive names for new fast food menu items. Well, try this one on for size: McDonald's Maple Bacon Dijon with Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich. What a mouthful!

Every few years it seems McDonald's takes another run at building a better chicken sandwich. They usually fail, as described in our 2015 review of their then "premium" sandwich.

I'd never been to Capriotti's before trying it last month. For those of you who haven't tried it, Capriotti's Sandwich Shop is a small nationwide sandwich chain with a handful of locations in major cities. Founded in Delaware in 1976, they make hot and cold sandwiches and salads, starting with their turkey sandwich "for real turkey lovers."

In April 2017, Wienerschnitzel published their Wiener Index, which promises to "uncover consumer trends and preferences." Among the findings:

  • The single most popular topping is chili (25%), then onions (21%) and relish coming in third (20%)
  • The most popular name for a hot dog is "dog" which beat out wiener, frank, sausage and Michael (ok, I made that last one up)

Wienerschnitzel commissioned a marketing firm to survey 1000 people for this study. Fun facts. Here's the press release with all the rest.
