Forget green eggs and ham. Denny’s is offering blue bread for their ham and cheese sandwiches. The restaurant brand announced the “Blue Moons Over My Hammy” sandwiches promotion. The restaurant introduced the sandwiches to celebrate a blue moon falling on Halloween.
The promotion will be available on Oct. 31 only. The promotion will also only be available in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
The restaurant announced the sandwiches in a tweet. The brand also changed their Twitter name to Halloweeny’s. They wrote, “Blue ham? No. Blue eggs? Nah. Blue cheese? Boring. Blue bread for a Blue Moon? Now we’re talking.”
According to Space.com, a blue moon is a second full moon within a single month. Blue moons aren’t a common occurrence and occur only once every two or three years. In a press release, the brand celebrated the event.
“Only in 2020 would a Blue Moon coincide with Halloween. So what better way to celebrate than by giving one of our most legendary breakfasts, the Moons Over My Hammy, a little makeover?” said John Dillon, the chief brand officer for Denny’s. “With Halloween looking very different this year, we took the opportunity to make our world-famous sandwich look different as well, and this colorful upgrade gave us an opportunity to have some fun and show our guests that anything is possible in 2020!”
