Pizza Hut México: Trailblazing paths to new levels of obesity

I walked to DHL in my neighborhood to mail something today, and on the way home decided to grab a quick personal pizza from Pizza Hut. Yes, it was against my better judgement, but I was in a hurry & we have virtually no food in our house. While waiting for my pizza, I was almost tempted to a) walk out and b) throw up after staring at the 10+ advertisements in the store for Pizza Hut’s new “Cheesy Pops Salchicha“.

Is this appealing to someone?

This is apparently the latest improvement on Pizza Hut’s previous gem of just plain “Cheesy Pops” (aka Cheese Bites for those of you in the US), wherein a circle of attached nuggets appear to excrete cheese onto the rest of the pizza. Only now, the cheese excretion is plugged up by the insertion of a dirty sausage (salchicha) into the mix. Blech.

This is disgusting, even for a girl who loves all things cheese.

I’m sure these are both probably old news by now in the US, but suffice it to say I was disturbed enough to feel that it merited a comment. I figure it is only a matter of time before they announce a pizza here that is ringed by multiple quesadillas welded onto the perimeter.  Here is an interpretation from someone with absolutely no graphic design tools at her disposal:

Microsoft Paint = not likely to be used by Pizza Hut for the advertising campgain for the new "Cheesy Quesadilla Gut-Bomb Pizza"

    I have something called “Cone-In-Pizza” in my freezer, waiting for me to blog about. It’s pizza in the shape of an ice cream cone. I bought it solely because of how gross it looked, much like the cheesy bites.

    I can honestly say that I have not seen these in the states, not that I walk by Pizza Hut regularly.

    Julie don’t deny that buying one of them bad boys after a session in the Tam would be the best idea ever – at the time! Come on now! (although I am relieved I’ve never seen a ‘real’ one :-)

    here in Philippines, obesity is also becoming a problem. More and more children are getting obese due to a lifestyle that is not fully of physical activities. most kids just wants to watch TV, play computer games and surf the net.

    Refined sugar, white or brown, literally has zero nutritional
    value – no minerals, no vitamins, no fiber, no enzymes, no fats
    - nothing of value for the body. Sugar adds flavor to every food and not having this might
    not give you an appetite to eat. The celeriac mixture is then placed on a
    plate alongside several slices of prosciutto.
