Yahoo Finance's Alexandra Canal breaks down the wackiest fast food clothing items.

Video Transcript

ZACK GUZMAN: The other options out there for people who might want other things, maybe fashion. Talk to me about what we're seeing from fast food companies jumping onto the fashion trend here for Valentine's Day, too.

ALEXANDRA CANAL: Yeah. So maybe you want a last minute gift for your significant other. Maybe you just want a new work from home outfit. But it's no denying that these fast food chains, these restaurant chains, they're really leaning into the merch. And I want to highlight a couple you can currently get yourselves. And then there are some that you just really have to see to believe.

So I want to kick things off here with Outback Steakhouse. They have a new steak wear collection, sort of a play on streetwear. And as you can see, there, it's some beautiful juicy meats, bloomin onions. If you want to win one of these sweatsuits, you have to go online and order a meal on outback.com. They launched this just a couple of weeks ago. So hopefully there are some more fast food fits left.

But I want to highlight one tweet from a user who did win a bloomin onion sweatsuit. He wrote, quote "thanks for the bloomin hot gift, Outback." And I mean honestly, this looks very, very comfy. So I wouldn't be too upset if I were to win one of these.

Next I want to talk about Popeye's beignet camo hoodie. Now Popeye's of course unveiled their beignet dessert back in December. And along with that came this camouflage hoodie. Now this hoodie is interesting because it basically has what looks like peppered powdered sugar all over you. But in reality, it kind of looks like dandruff. So I think that's what a lot of the backlash has been about this sweatshirt. Still, it's selling for $35 on the Popeye's website. So you can go and take a look there.

And then finally, these last two are really fun. One is the Dunkin' Donuts onesie. This has just gone crazy on social media. They've re-released it in November following all the fan craze for a TikTok promotion. But once again, it's sold out. And I have another tweet here from a user who was so upset that she didn't have a chance to get this Dunkin' Donuts sweatshirt. She writes, quote, "I'm so mad right now. Dunkin' released their onesie today and it sold out the minute it was available at Eastern time. I cried. I was waiting for it."

So people are literally crying for this onesie. And then finally, Zack I know you are going to know this one. It's the Red Lobster sweater that has an insulated pack where you can hold your cheddar biscuits. Now this one we actually debuted on Yahoo Finance when it was released in November of 2019. Our reporter at the time, Heidi Cheung, you can see her there digging into the biscuits.

She said at the time that they did keep the biscuits warm. So there's that. Zack, did you have one of these biscuits? Because they looked very delicious. Although I don't know [INAUDIBLE] business in a pack.

ZACK GUZMAN: It was fit and functionality. It was the crossover that everybody wanted.

ALEXANDRA CANAL: I mean, it looked good. That's the difference. So maybe we'll see that. But all in all, I mean, all of these fast food chains, these restaurants, they're leaning more and more into merch because they are simply not just places that you go and buy food. They're becoming full fledged brands. And at the end of the day, that's what consumers are really looking for.

AKIKO FUJITA: OK. Thanks so much for that--
