Little Caesars' viral Crazy Puffs are worth it

The new fast food item taking over the internet is a bite-sized spin on a local staple.

Driving the news: Food influencers and reviewers are rushing to try Little Caesars' new Crazy Puffs after the Detroit-based pizza chain launched them March 11.

The intrigue: The puffs are filled with cheese, stacked pieces of pepperoni and dough — "pockets of pizza perfection," Little Caesars claims.

  • It's also a bargain: one four-pack costs $3.99.

Yes, but: You might want to call in or order ahead online if you want them ready on arrival.

💭 Sam's thought bubble: I went to a packed Little Caesars on Warren Avenue yesterday and waited about 30 minutes. My pepperoni puffs were hot and crisp but they came without seasoning.

  • The missing garlic butter drizzle and dusting of oregano would have really made these special.
  • Pro tip: Be careful biting into one, that pizza sauce will stain your shirt.
