Carl's Jr., the company that brought us porny Padma Laskshmi, has a new form of titillation on the horizon. This Wednesday the restaurant will roll out its strawberry Pop-Tart ice cream sandwich nationwide. The dessert had been in testing in certain SoCal locations, but the response was so overwhelmingly positive, the fast food chain decided to go national.

It's partially Jimmy Kimmel's fault. After hearing about the prototype, Kimmel brought it up in his April 22 monologue, asking "Is Carl's Jr. reading my dream journal?" Nation's Restaurant News reports that by the time Kimmel mentioned the dessert, the test was over and viewers were disappointed to find that they couldn't get one.

The sandwich consists of hand-scooped vanilla ice cream between a halved strawberry Pop-Tart. For a limited time, it will come free with a Super Bacon Cheeseburger combination meal -- because what do you need after eating something called a "super bacon cheeseburger" but a squillion more empty calories?. You'll be able to buy it separately for $1.49.

  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.

    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
