New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been on a fundraising tour across the nation as of late, and it looks like getting a break from the turmoil in Trenton has got the likely 2016 aspirant feeling like his old, swaggering self. Investigations into Christie’s involvement with Bridgegate as well as the Hoboken shakedown are still chugging along, however, so it may be best for Christie to enjoy his time away from home as much as he can. As he should know by now, the good times don’t always last.
Here’s the latest from Christieland that you need to know:
Domino's Specialty Chicken: It's like regular pizza, except instead of a crust, there's fried chicken. The company's marketing officer calls it "one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had” -- brain power put to good use.
KFC'S ZINGER DOUBLE DOWN KING: A sandwich made by adding a burger patty to the infamous chicken-instead-of-buns creation can only be described using all caps. NO BUN ALL MEAT. Only available in South Korea.
Taco Bell's Waffle Taco: It took two years for Taco Bell to develop this waffle folded in the shape of a taco, the stand-out star of its new breakfast menu.
Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger: Only attendees at the San Diego County Fair were given the opportunity to taste the official version of this donut-hamburger-heart attack combo. The rest of America has reasonable odds of not dropping dead tomorrow.
Taco Bell's Quesarito: A burrito wrapped in a quesadilla inside an enigma. Quarantined to one store in Oklahoma City.
