Pizza Hut Is Selling a Weighted Blanket That Looks Like a Pepperoni Pie — and It's 15 Pounds of Total Comfort
Have you ever wanted to fall asleep under a pizza after eating a pizza? Me too.
But if you put them together? Pure bliss.
In an effort to give people a little extra comfort in 2020, Pizza Hut has collaborated with Gravity Blanket to release a limited edition weighted blanket that looks just like one of their pan pizzas.
“There’s no better way to close out 2020 than eating a Pizza Hut Original Pan Pizza while wrapped in the warmth and comfort of the Original Pan Weighted Blanket," said George Felix, chief marketing officer at Pizza Hut, in a statement. “This partnership with Gravity Blanket was the perfect solution to bring one of our legendary pizzas to life while bringing our fans a little TLC at the same time.”
The Original Pan Weighted Blanket measures 72 inches (six feet) in diameter and weighs 15 pounds -– so it’s perfect for two people to snuggle on the couch with. The general guideline for weighted blankets is that they should not weigh more than 10 percent of your body weight, according to Healthline.
The blanket is covered with a microfleece duvet that is made to look like a pepperoni pizza, so it’s soft, comfortable, and probably hunger-inducing. In general, weighted blankets are thought to improve sleep and ease anxiety, so this one will just help you work up an appetite too.
The limited edition blanket retails for $150, which is a 25 percent savings of the average cost of a comparable blanket from Gravity, according to the statement by Pizza Hut. Since there are only so many weighted blankets to go around, anyone who absolutely needs this blanket should order it soon while supplies last. If you can’t, you can always soothe your cravings with an actual pizza.
