Little Caesars Loads Up Its Popular Crazy Bread for New Savory Sharable

New Loaded Crazy Bread Bites Feature Four Types of Cheese and Bacon

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - August 29, 2016) - Little Caesars is bringing together its legendary Crazy Bread® with four types of cheese and applewood smoked bacon to create a delicious new offering: Loaded Crazy Bread Bites®. Available for a limited-time, Loaded Crazy Bread Bites start with pieces of Little Caesars Crazy Bread drizzled with warm cheddar cheese sauce, topped with shredded Muenster and Mozzarella and grated parmesan cheeses, then finished with applewood smoked bacon.

"Since its debut in 1982, Crazy Bread's popularity has grown to reach a nearly iconic status," said Edward Gleich, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing. "That's why we think Crazy Bread is the perfect platform to be loaded with other craveable ingredients for the ultimate complement to our pizza."

Little Caesars Crazy Bread is so popular that if you lined up all the Crazy Bread sold in a year, it would circle the earth three times. Crazy Bread is prepared using dough made from scratch in-store each day to create the perfect texture and flavor. Sticks of freshly baked bread are topped with flavors of butter and garlic, then sprinkled with Parmesan cheese to create one of Little Caesars most popular menu items.

That legendary side item is taken to new heights with Loaded Crazy Bread Bites, all for only $4 plus tax where applicable, at participating locations. Loaded Crazy Bread Bitesare available HOT-N-READY® from 4-8 p.m. or all day, every day by request at all participating U.S. Little Caesars restaurants.
