Get ready to feel nostalgic, millennials. Pizza Hut is gearing up for March Madness with a ’90s favorite.
LOUISVILLE, Colo. — Pizza Hut has announced the return of the 1990s favorite among millennials worldwide.
The pizza chain said Wednesday it is bringing back mini basketballs just in time for the NCAA March Madness tournament.
Pizza Hut will release its red and black mini basketballs at participating restaurants nationwide beginning Tuesday, March 14. The mini basketballs will be available for a limited time for $7 on the Pizza Hut website and the Pizza Hut app.
The nostalgic offering has been “updated with a sleek new design featuring a black and red pattern that reads ‘No One Out Pizzas The Hut,'” according to Pizza Hut.
But that’s not all Pizza Hut has planned for the country’s massive basketball tournament.
Pizza Hut said orders of the ’90s favorite Big New Yorker pizza will come in a special box that transforms into a basketball hoop and backboard.
The March Madness Big New Yorker Interactive Pizza Box is now available at participating locations while supplies last.
“We’re back for our seventh year as the official pizza of March Madness, and we wanted to do something special for basketball fans who love pizza,” said Lindsay Morgan, Pizza Hut’s chief marketing officer.
“That’s why we’re bringing back a fan favorite, our mini basketballs, to pair perfectly with pizza orders during the tournament, and introducing an interactive hoop pizza packaging so customers can play basketball at home.”
