Ridiculous Food Mashup Generator Helps You Invent ‘Dofurters,’ ‘Wagels’


Maybe it’s because people love portmanteaus. Maybe chefs have run out of ideas. Whatever the case, foodies everywhere continue to push the mashup trend strong, always with the same question on their wonut/ramenritto-stained lips: “so, what’s next?”

Instead of waiting for the latest trend to tell you, why not toss a couple crazy hype foods together yourself? And, thanks to Chicago Magazine, you won’t even have to worry about the name.

For reasons probably immaterial (read: just ’cause okay), Chicago Mag decided to create this entirely tongue-in-cheek and only mildly useful food combo generator to help “catapult you to Yelp-based fame and fortune.”

Just pick two foods from a list that includes bagels, burgers, cookies, macaroni, martinis, poutines, sushi, waffles, and more, and some fancy algorithms will poop out the perfect name for your invention. Hey, we’re not too far off from hamburfins (burger muffins) and ragels (ramen bagels) anyway. You might as well take the credit.
