Little Caesars tied the knot with pretzels
Nobody seemed to want to make a normal-crusted pizza this year, as Little Caesars was the first of the bunch to experiment with a pretzel-crusted pizza, which has cheddar cheese as a sauce base. Unsurprisingly, it goes great with beer.
White Castle turned even more things into sliders
White Castle is more than just burger sliders now -- the chain released a slew of Italian-inspired Parmesan sliders in addition to some Sriracha-sauced ones. Way to class it up, Whitey.
