Let’s See What New Menu Items Launched January 2020
Here we are at the end of January, so you know what that means, January 2020 New Menu Items!
Please, please, let’s hold the cheers and applause. I get it, I’m just as excited as you are, but there’s work to do.
January has flown by, but not without a few new menu items rolling out nationwide. We like to stay on top of these new items for you so you can monitor what’s happening in food trends on a national level and adjust accordingly.
So, without further ado, let’s see what’s hot!
New Menu Items – January 2020
Outside of the continued expansion of plant-based meats on national menus, the following items don’t have much in common. In the past, we’ve seen commonalities on new menu item roll-outs, like Chicken or BBQ. This month, it’s a little more scattershot.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of chicken in this lineup, but different forms and contexts. It doesn’t quite match up.
Taco John’s released their new Taco Perfecto line this month. What makes it “Perfecto?” The crunchy shell is extra-long, smaller in profile, and designed to offer you a mix of every ingredient in every bite. Say goodbye to the classic two-bite taco.
The Chipotle Chicken Perfecto combines diced chicken, Cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and a creamy sauce made with smoky chipotle puree. I can get behind that.
The creative geniuses at Taco Bell are at it again with their new Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries. It’s no surprise these masters of craveability put this combination together.
Piggybacking on the huge popularity of the nacho fries, this dish is loaded. Seasoned, shredded chicken, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, and a spicy buffalo sauce are piled high over their crispy flagship nacho fries. There’s no doubt the late-night drive through lines are going to be packed full for this item.
Famous Dave’s is going full Southern comfort on us with Iris’ Comeback Chicken Sandwich.
This tasty devil features a crispy chicken filet brushed with smoky BBQ sauce and topped with their famous spicy pickles and a new creamy Comeback sauce. This sandwich is inspired by a recipe passed down from Dave’s mother. The real question is, how many times will you come back for a bite?
Cauliflower pizza crusts have arrived at Donatos Pizza! Yes, you heard that right. All you keto lifestylers and hidden veggie fans now have a new best friend in the Ohio-based chain.
Not only are the crusts available, but they come in three new builds: Bruschetta, Garden, and Heat. All feature the delicious Donatos red sauce, smoked provolone cheese, and, most importantly, a flavorful plant-based sausage.
Just another reason to love the folks over at Donatos.
That covers it for the January 2020 New Menu Items. Follow along with us to keep updated with what’s happening in the food and beverage industry every month.
