It’s baked like a pizza, cut into eight slices like a pizza, comes in a cardboard box like a pizza, but it’s not a pizza: It’s Papa John’s new “Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie” — built big and brawny and probably made with nebulously billed “better ingredients” like everything else the chain puts out. The “family-style” dessert costs just $5 with purchase of a real pizza and joins the somewhat suspect, doughy ranks of Papa John’s Applepie and Cinnapie. [Brand Eating]
