Pizza Hut and Gravity Blanket Made a Weighted Pizza Blanket
If there’s one thing we know to be true about 2020, it’s that comfort has been calling all year long. Whether it’s comfort decorating, reaching for comfort food, or both, this year has been the ultimate exercise in finding ways to weather storm after storm. Now you can add one more tool to your repertoire: Pizza Hut’s weighted blanket.
Everyone’s favorite pizza chain from childhood teamed up with Gravity Blanket to launch a weighted blanket in the style of their signature pan pizza. The Original Pan Weighted Blanket is a limited edition, round blanket that retails for $150. It has a diameter of 72 inches, which is between a queen and king-sized mattress. That’s large enough for you to sleep under comfortably or cozy up on the couch with.
Weighing in at 15 pounds, the blanket’s micro-fleece duvet cover looks surprisingly real, and it’s hard not to want a slice of the real thing. (Just writing about it is making my stomach grumble, so hats off to you, Pizza Hut). The two-sided design looks exactly like their signature pan pizza, complete with glistening grease on the pepperoni. For vegetarians or more classic pizza lovers, this blanket also comes in plain cheese.
Weighted blankets have become increasingly popular in recent years, even before 2020 was a thing. Studies have shown that the added pressure reduces anxiety and improves sleep quality. The effects are often compared to getting a big, warm hug from someone you love. And well, if someone you love happens to be pizza (*raises hand*), then this Pizza Hut weighted blanket might not seem like such an outlandish idea.
Orders start shipping in late December, so you’ll have plenty of winter nights left to cozy up under your pepperoni pizza. The blanket is currently sold out but you can get notified when it’s back in stock.
