“One order of Melts features two slices of Pizza Hut’s signature Thin N’ Crispy crust loaded with an abundance of toppings and cheese, folded over, baked to melty perfection and complemented with a dipping sauce that pairs perfectly with the individual-sized meal,” announced the chain in October.

“Unlike most pizza dishes, Melts were designed for a pizza party of ONE.” They’re “great for a quick savory snack, lunch, or on-the-go dinner” and “not for sharing!”

No indeed. Why would you share your quick 1,100+ calorie “snack” with anyone else?

Take the Pepperoni Lover’s Melt with marinara dipping sauce. Don’t you want those 1,150 calories—and those 28 grams of saturated fat and 2,660 milligrams of sodium (more than a day’s worth of each)—all for yourself?

It’s like eating four slices of a medium hand-tossed Pizza Hut Pepperoni Lover’s Pizza.

With their dipping sauces, the Meat Lover’s (1,100 calories), Chicken Bacon Parmesan (1,170), and Buffalo Chicken (1,190) Melts are in the same ballpark.

Pizza Hut already sells Personal Pan Pizzas with 560 to 740 calories. So what if the Melts push you into the 1,100+ range!

Surely, that’s not Pizza Hut’s fault.
