Fast Food Solutions for Lent

Happy Mardi Gras!

I hope you celebrate Fat Tuesday in true fast food style today, but Mardi Gras, of course, also marks the beginning of Lent tomorrow.  And some fast food chains have dining solutions available for those observing Lent.

Lenten season menu items and specials include:
  • Long John Silver's is, of course, a perennial go-to solution during Lent.  They are currently launching their new Crispy Breaded Pollock with the supporting Spin & Win Fish Fry online sweepstakes.
  • Captain D's Seafood Kitchen has their new Butterfly Shrimp Dippers; the 15-piece meal is only $4.99.
  • Jack in the Box will be offering their Fish Sandwich for just $1.49 during Lent.  They also have 2 other fish products: Fish & Chips for $3.99 and the Fish Pita Snack for $1.99.
  • Dairy Queen has a Popcorn Shrimp Basket which includes fries, coleslaw and cocktail sauce.
  • A&W Restaurants has brought back their 21-piece Shrimp and Fries.

Cashing in on lent... Anonymous is right about taco bell... you can sub potatoes, rice, or beans for anything on the menu that has meat in it.
