'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' inspires new menu at Denny's restaurants
Even if you don't have the money to buy a plane ticket to New Zealand, you can still get a taste of Middle-Earth. Denny's has announced that it is launching a new menu to tie in with the upcoming release of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
"We just felt with the two breakfasts that whole notion of comfort eating and comfort food" were a fit for Denny's," Frances Allen, CMO at the restaurant chain tells Ad Age.
Well, we do know hobbits like their food. On the new Denny's menu are 11 dishes and sides, including items like the "Shire Sausage," "Gandalf's Gobble Melt," "Hobbit Hole Breakfast" and "Frodo's Pot Roast Skillet." The new plates will be available from Dec. 4 through early January, so you can swing by to grab a nighttime snack after you catch the midnight release of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" on Dec. 14. Bilbo Baggins wouldn't want it any other way.
