Over 100 million Americans tuned into the Super Bowl on Sunday night to find out what secret new menu item Pizza Hut has been ruthlessly teasing for weeks. I heard there was some football played too, but pizza usurps sports every time. That’s just the facts, folks.
The super secret product turned out to be the Big Pizza Slider – mini-pizzas that measure 3.5″ across and will be sold in boxes of three for $5 or nine for $10. They’re on sale now and you can get them with any of Pizza Hut’s normal toppings.
The photo above is nice and all, but take a second and think about how big 3.5″ really is. That’s not that much bigger than their personal pans (6″). Pizza Hut is basically selling pizza bagels. Sliders have been a huge trend lately and I honestly don’ know why. They’re cute, I guess, and maybe give the illusion that you’re not eating as much.
Even in the form of pizza (the greatest of all food), the appeal of the slider remains a mystery to me.
