The Secret Menu: Part I

Image

Surprisingly, many of the fast-food restaurants we have grown to love have more than meets the eye. Today it is becoming quite common for restaurants to have “secret menus”. What are these you ask? Most restaurants have a “secret menu” with items that can’t be seen on the menu but you can simply ask an employee, and most of the time they can serve you what your heart desires. I’m not saying that all of the secret menu items below are at every location, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Enjoy!

 

Little Caesars

Stuffed Cheese Crust Pizza: According to Coupon Sherpa, if you ask Little Caesars staff for a cheese-stuffed-crust pizza they will make it for you.

 

Subway

Pizza Sub: When I first started college at BYU-Idaho, I often got one sandwich—the Pizza Sub. This sandwich contains your bread of choice, pepperoni, marinara sauce, and cheese. It was discontinued when Subway took on a healthier approach, but I have found if you ask, and if needed, explain it to the Subway employee, they will always make it for you.

 

Chicken Pizziola Sub: This was a limited sandwich too like the Pizza Sub. This sandwich consists of grilled chicken, pepperoni, marinara sauce, and your choice of cheese. Like above, if you explain it to the Subway employee they will make it for you, but charge extra. I’m not sure why the extra charge though?

 

Jamba Juice

I’ve often heard of Jamba Juice having a secret menu and thankfully, thanks to websites like Coupon Sherpa, one can find a list of these “secret smoothies” which include:

 

  • Pink Starburst
  • Sourpatch Kid
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly
  • Apple Pie
  • Fruity Pebbles
  • Push Pop
  • Skittles

 

Arby’s

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich: My family is going to flip when they hear about this one as we are chicken cordon bleu lovers! This sandwich has a chicken breast topped with a slice of ham and covered in melted Swiss cheese.

 

Chick-Fil-A

Just when you thought Chick Fil-A couldn’t get any better these secret menu items come along.

 

  • Blueberry Cheesecake Milkshake
  • Chicken Quesadilla
  • Root Beer Float
