Popeyes won our fast-food pie taste test. But if you haven't been to the chicken chain in a while, you might not know that the restaurant serves this crispy, tasty apple pie. It's better than McDonald's, trust us!
Burger King Cheesy Tots
You can order more than basic fries at BK! One bite of these and you're feasting on melted cheesy potato bites that are covered in a crunchy bread crumb coating.
In September, Chick-fil-A added a mocha cream cold brew and a fudge brownie to its menu. Chocolate lovers, rejoice!
Dunkin' Stuffed Bagel Minis
Have you ever been tempted by the Bantam Bagels bites in the Starbucks checkout line? Dunkin' is serving a version of stuffed bagel bites now, too. The minis come in plain or everything bagel flavors and are stuffed with plain cream cheese. They're part of the newly revamped Dunkin' snack menu, which also includes bacon and steak egg wraps.
Sonic Hot Fudge Shake
Sure, you knew you could get a chocolate shake at Sonic. But what about a hot fudge shake? It may sound like an oxymoron, but it's worth trying at least once.
Shake Shack Chick'n Bites
When we had our fast-food chicken nuggets taste test, several tasters said they didn't know Shake Shack sold these chicken bites. They won the test, though, so give them a try!
McDonald's Caramel Brownie McFlurry
You know about the Oreo and M&Ms McFlurries. But for a limited time, there's a Caramel Brownie McFlurry option, too! And it's worth ordering.
Pret-A-Manger Pumpkin Pie Latte
Bored with the PSL? Try Pret's pumpkin pie latte, which is heavy on the spice flavors and perfect for those who want a drink that's a bit less sweet-tasting.
Panera Smokehouse BBQ Chicken Sandwich
Panera has several new items on the menu this season, including this BBQ-inspired chicken sandwich. Pair it with a cup of chili for the perfect fall meal!
Taco Bell Grande Stacker
Think of this as a folded-over quesadilla, stuffed with meat and cheese. You can even customize it by adding guacamole, beans, sour cream, or any of Taco Bell's other toppings.
Krispy Kreme Chocolate Glazed Donut
Sure, you know about Krispy Kreme's hot, fresh glazed donuts. But on Fridays, the chain offers chocolate-glazed donuts, and they're worth the trip to the donut shop.
Subway Buffalo Chicken Signature Wrap
If all you know about Subway is that the chain serves massive, footlong subs, you'll be happy to learn you can get a wrap instead of ordering an entire bread loaf for your sandwich. The buffalo chicken wrap is a perfect choice for spice lovers.
Whether you're feeding a picky child or you just don't feel like a traditional sub, you can always get a classic PB&J sandwich at Potbelly. (We won't tell if you decide to pair it with one of the chain's signature milkshakes, too.)
McDonald's Strawberry & Crème Pie
Yes, there's another pie besides apple on the McDonald's menu! This one is half strawberry filling, half cream filling. Yum!
Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam
Maybe you already knew that Starbucks has the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, topped with a pumpkin cold foam topping. But if you don't like cold brew, you can add the pumpkin cold foam to any iced drink! Try it on a latte or an iced tea.
