This Takeaway Dice Could End Weekend Food-Decision Arguments

Remember that scene in Gavin & Stacey? Yeh, you do. Smithy gets a little carried away with his Indian takeaway order and then refuses to share? Standard.

And before you decide what you want to order from the restaurant comes the minefield of picking a cuisine. You've already decided how many times to snooze your alarm this morning, what to wear today, whether to go to work or not: enter decision fatigue. But this game-changing dice will take the decision making out of the equation and bring peace to your takeaway supper arguments once and for all.

The Gift Republic Take-away Decision Dice, £3.99 from ASOS, is the clever little device you didn't know you needed.

Just throw the dice and, instead of numbers, the cute cartoon food images 'takeaway' the burden on making food decisions.

Options include a burger, pizza, pan Asian, chicken, a dish (which we assume contains curry) and a burrito.

Consider the decision made for you.

On the subject of decision fatigue - KFC & Pizza Hut created a mash up this February that means nobody misses out on their favourite fast food. Introducing: the Gravy Supreme.

The pair of fast food giants joined forces to make the magic happen for #NationalPizzaDay, but what is the Gravy Supreme?

Gather round, kids - consider this an education. The Gravy Supreme is a mash up of some of the hero items from each of the fast-food restaurants' menus. Essentially it's a Cheesy Bites pizza smothered in KFC gravy and topped with The Colonel's Popcorn chicken pieces, mozzarella, sweet corn and garlic sprinkles.

While not available to the public yet (sorry), the Frankenstein's- monster-of-a-pizza is in the process of being tested and trialled by Pizza Hut Delivery and KFC's chief innovators to make sure it's as tasty as can be.

But fear not, both eateries have said that, if demand for the pizza is high enough, then it could be coming to stores across the UK next year. But are you excited or terrified?

A KFC UK and Ireland spokesperson (apparently not The Colonel) said: "Dreams really do come true. Pairing our signature gravy and Popcorn Chicken with Pizza Hut's famous base and toppings is a match made in heaven.

"Believe us when we say it's a thing of absolute beauty."

Speaking for the other side a Pizza Hut spokesperson added: "At Pizza Hut, we are all about bringing our consumers what they want - and what could be better than a Gravy Supreme. It combines the best of KFC and Pizza Hut to make the perfect pizza!"

People on social media are, as you probably guessed, pretty gassed about the mash up, with many excited to try the pizza.

One user described the Gravy Supreme as "My idea of heaven."

Another called it a" "game changer".

"THE DREAM" said a third.

But some fast-food fans weren't as buzzed for the mash up.

One tweeted: "I'm all for trying new foods and a sucker for Limited Edition things but that KFC Pizza Hut mash up mess is something I do NOT need in my life."

A second asked: "Gravy on pizza??? Are you mad?"

While a third tweeted: "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should."
