What time does Burger King stop serving breakfast?

A productive day starts with a hearty breakfast—and for most of us, that sometimes means fast food. We can claim to hate it all we want, but there’s no denying the allure of a tasty bacon, egg, and cheese Crossan’wich served with a side of toasty hash browns. If your rise and shine is somewhat sluggish some mornings, you may wonder what time can you order breakfast until at Burger King? Well, Burger King typically starts serving breakfast at 6 a.m. and serves its morning menu until 10:30 sharp at which time, lunch promptly starts. (The exceptions to this rule are the 24/7 locations, which may start breakfast earlier than that.) Find a Burger King location near you. If you’ve ever wondered why fast food joints just don’t serve breakfast all day long, it has to do with griddle temperatures. Lunch menu items, like those sizzling burgers, require higher griddle…

According to the Cosmic Crisp website, the apple “has a remarkably firm and crisp texture” and “provides ample sweetness and tartness.” It sounds too good to be true, but growers and industry experts shot for the moon when they created the new Cosmic Crisp. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bxk6P0VFtkP/ Why is it called the Cosmic Crisp? It has to do with the lenticels. If you’re not an apple grower, you may never have…

Where to find PBR’s 99 can case of beer

This holiday season you can adorn your home with 99 bottles, er… cans, of beer on your wall. Yes, Pabst Blue Ribbon released a monstrous 99 can pack of PBR beer. As you would expect, the pack contains 99 cans of beer and is aptly named the 99 Pabst. The case looks to be about six-or seven-feet long, and it appears you might need a friend to help carry it. Each case contains three types of PBR: Original, Easy (with is a light lager), and Extra (with contains more ABV than the original). The pack was first released in 2017 and sold for $59.99, but was sadly only available in Quebec, Canada.
