It seems that Applebee's is the latest brand to jump on the bowl craze with the debut of its new Irresist-A-Bowls lineup.
As the name suggests, the new Irresist-A-Bowls consist of different blends of toppings, served in a bowl. The bowls come in five different varieties, which range from indulgent, to healthier options. For instance, the Homestyle Chicken Bowl is the epitome of comfort food, with chicken tenders and mashed potatoes topped with cheddar cheese, gravy, and crispy onions. On the other hand, the Southwest Lime-Grilled Chicken Bowl is a zesty offering that starts with a bed of salad and rice, which is topped with pico, guacamole, salsa, chimichurri sauce, crunchy, tortilla strips, and your choice of chipotle chicken or steak.
