Because of Gorbachev We Have Pizza Hut

Pan pizza is a pizza baked in a deep dish pan or sheet pan.

Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev (2 March 1931 – 30 August 2022) was a Russian and Soviet politician who served as the last leader of the Soviet Union. Ideologically, Gorbachev initially adhered to Marxism–Leninism but moved towards social democracy by the early 1990s.

In 1997, former Soviet Union leader Gorbachev starred in a Pizza Hut commercial with his granddaughter Anastasia Virganskaya to raise money for the Perestroyka Archives. The ad “obviously exploited the shock value of having a former world leader appear… [and] played on the fact that Gorbachev was far more popular outside Russia than inside it”. It was filmed on a multi-million budget with a cinematic quality, including mounting cameras on the Kremlin and shutting down Red Square to get the establishing shots of the square, and dialogue entirely in Russian with English subtitles, to show Pizza Hut as a global brand compared to its American rivals.

The commercial suggested that capitalism was better than communism because it made Pizza Hut possible. In October 1998, Pizza Hut left Moscow. Gorbachev has stated to The Guardian that he lost his savings due to the 1998 Russian financial crisis. Pizza Hut suspended operations of their 50 Russian outlets in response to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In cooking, a syrup or sirup (from Arabic: شراب‎; sharāb, beverage, wine and Latin: sirupus) is a condiment that is a thick, viscous liquid consisting primarily of a solution of sugar in water, containing a large amount of dissolved sugars but showing little tendency to deposit crystals.

Imitation syrups are generally cheaper than maple syrup, with less natural flavour. In the United States, consumers generally prefer imitation syrups, likely because of the significantly lower cost and sweeter flavour; they typically cost about $8 per US gallon ($2 per litre), whereas authentic maple syrup costs $40–$60 per US gallon ($11–$16 per litre) as of 2015.
