The next big craze: pizza and ‘nilla wafers

Readers who do not live in Wichita, Kansas, may not know that Pizza Hut was founded here in 1958 by brothers Dan and Frank Carney. The original Pizza Hut building is still standing on the Wichita State campus (it’s non-operational though).

I tell you this to explain that perhaps Wichita is the epicenter for emerging trends in the world of pizza. How else can we explain that on a recent trip to a Pizza Hut lunch buffet in west Wichita, vanilla wafers were on the buffet. Yep, right next to the big bowl of iceberg lettuce to make a salad and in a canister just like the croutons that were sitting adjacent.

So when it shows up in your neighborhood, remember this craze all started in Wichita.

    That’s one of the reasons Rachel loves going to pizza hut – she gets to have cookies with her dinner!

      What what?!? I’d never noticed them before but I don’t go to the PH buffet much. Wonder why they put them next to the lettuce like they are a salad topping? Lol. I prefer the cinnamon sticks for dessert, and that’s the only reason I go to the buffet!

        There is usually pudding too. You should check out the salad bar more often. :)

          If there was puddin’ in the area, I’d notice it! Love me some puddin’.
