It seems fast food is starting to forget what pizza is. Back in April, Domino's unleashed a new line of "Specialty Chickens," which were essentially pizza toppings drizzled over chicken nuggets instead of dough. Now, Pizza Hut is partnering with Hershey's to debut a new giant chocolate chip cookie. Which, while probably spec-freaking-tacular, is still not a pizza.
Officially named the Ultimate Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookie, the 8-inch pan will feature eight shareable slices of chocolate dotted cookie dough. Available for $5.99 on its own or $4.99 with real pizza purchase, the giant pizookie will also debut this Wednesday as part of Pizza Hut's nationwide "bake sale," with 10% of proceeds going to the United Nations World Food Programme.
Mildly related: Domino's recently (and, rather serendipitously) called a "cookie pizza" one of its necessary failures in and advertisement on the road to crafting its Specialty Chickens. Which is pretty much the same as calling a first born child a "rough draft." Pizza. Shots. Fired.
