Last CallLast CallLast Call is The Takeout’s on-line watering gap the place you can chat, share recipes, and use the remark part as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been studying/watching/listening across the workplace as we speak.

In a world of flashy vacation crusts and sustainable toppings, the Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza has discovered a unique approach to keep related, and that’s by productizing. For Boston Pizza, it’s not simply in regards to the pizza, it’s about the entire package deal—that’s, the literal packaging. This season, it’s rolling out a supply pizza field that sings a Christmas carol when you open it.

Calling this a Christmas carol is beneficiant, as a result of like so, so, so many business advert spots earlier than it, what the field really sings is “Carol of the Bells” with modified, pizza-centric lyrics, quite horrifically forcing stress on the second syllable of “pizza” in its effort to suit the tune. Still, we’ve got to commend Boston Pizza for locating a approach to heighten the already thrilling second when you get to crack open your freshly delivered pie.

Ol’ Boston Pizza has been innovating in the field area for some time now, and The Takeout has carefully tracked their pizza-in-bed contraptions in addition to their tiny pizza chairs. We’ve requested essential questions like, “But what does the pizza taste like?” and “Does it matter what the pizza tastes like when it’s designed to be eaten in your bed?” Maybe the following query we’ll be asking is, “How quickly is everyone getting sick of hearing ‘Carol of the Bells’ product jingles?”
