UPDATE: Buffalo Chicken Fries Are Coming To Burger King, Here’s What We Know

BK-Buffalo-Fries-HD

Burger King sure is placing all their bets on Chicken Fries. The breaded sticks of poultry made a triumphant return to BK menus last year as they found a permanent home at the fast food chain. Now, another variant of the Chicken Fries is quietly being advertised: Buffalo.

GrubGrade reports that Burger King is mailing out advertisements promoting the new fries. You may remember that BK released another flavor of the fries, Fiery Chicken Fries, a few months ago.

The Buffalo Chicken Fries probably won’t be as spicy as its “fiery” predecessor, but might just be a nice middle ground between that and the original flavor.

No word yet on whether Burger King plans to take the Buffalo Chicken Fries nationally or regionally.

UPDATE: Burger King has confirmed that the Buffalo Chicken Fries are available now at participating restaurants for a limited time. The fries will feature a dusting of buffalo spices and will be served with the patron’s choice of dipping sauces.

Each order of Buffalo Chicken Fries will be available for around $2.89.

Chick-fil-A Is Replacing Three Of Your Favorite Dipping Sauces And Adding SRIRACHA

Chick-fil-A Sriracha Sauce

One of our favorite things about Chick-fil-A is that they give customers full access to sauce. While other fast food spots have them behind the counter, and others even charge you for them, the fast-casual chicken sandwich chain just has them sitting out for anyone to grab at their convenience.

Now, they’re throwing in a few more flavors.

GrubGrade reports that Chick-fil-A is testing a new sauce to add to its already massive collection and a few to replace existing ones. Sweet & Spicy Sriracha has been spotted at Chick-fil-A locations in select Southern states already. The new flavor is said to be made with chili peppers to create a spicy, sweet and tangy sauce.

The restaurant also adds three new sauces: Smokehouse BBQ, Garlic & Herb Ranch and Zesty Buffalo sauce. These will replace the existing BBQ, Ranch and Buffalo sauces, respectively.

Don’t expect to find these sauces at every Chick-fil-A anytime soon, however. GrubGrade reports that the sauces will be available nationwide sometime in late 2016.

In the meantime, we’ve still got more than plenty of sauces to build pyramids with while we chow on chicken.

Looters Raid Abandoned Doritos Truck to Survive Massive Snowstorm

Doritos-Snowstorm-Looter

If you’re stuck in a life-altering snowstorm, you’re pretty much going to do whatever it takes to survive. This includes hopping into an abandoned Doritos truck and looting it for sustenance. Such was the case for a group of men braving a massive lake-effect snowstorm in South Buffalo, NY, reports Syracuse.

Lake-effect snow is created when cold winds travel over warmer lake water, picking up water vapor and speed before freezing up. It appears the driver of a Doritos truck was caught in the snow and decided to abandon ship once the storm grew intense.

Soon after, photos appeared on social media depicting men entering the now-abandoned truck and leaving with snacks. These photos were accompanied by many Doritos-related puns.

The historic snowstorm left up to 150 vehicles stuck in the snow on the New York State Thruway with at least five deaths caused by the storm.

All Cool Ranch jokes aside, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has declared a state of emergency in the area that extends into Central New York.

Sonic ‘Tosses’ and ‘Sauces’ Three Boneless Wings

Sonic-Boneless-Wings

Sonic Drive-In has taken steps to cater to wing fanatics out there by adding three Boneless Wings options to their menu. Sure, they’re more or less chicken nuggets covered in sauce, but baby steps. You’re eating in your car, after all. The three wing flavors are Buffalo, Asian Sweet Chili and Barbecue.

Using crispy chicken breast pieces made bite-sized, the wings are tossed in the sauces. The Buffalo sauce is made with cayenne, red chili peppers and just a bit of chipotle. The Asian Sweet Chili mixes soy sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes and lemon grass. The Barbecue takes Sonic’s original sauce and adds some brown sugar.

Sonic’s Boneless Wings are available to order in batches of either six, 12 or 24 pieces. Any order of 12 or more gives customers the option to combine two different flavors. The wings will be available at all participating Sonic locations for a limited time through November.

Hopefully they’re a tad bigger than the popcorn chicken Sonic already serves.

Football season is literally here. Naturally, every restaurant with a bar and TV is tuning in to the game, including Hooters who will be introducing three new snackable dishes they’re calling Big Game Eats.

The tortilla chip dishes include your basic Chili con Queso, Tex Mex Nachos, and most interesting is a Buffalo Chicken Dip. Perfect snacking food for football. The Buffalo Dip is made with Hooter’s chicken wings, shredded and blended with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and a spicy buffalo sauce.

Tim Hortons Offers Buffalo Crunch Donut Covered in Buffalo Sauce, Tortilla Chips, and Ranch Dressing

buffalo-crunch-donut

For a second there, we were worried Burger King’s purchase of Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons would give birth to all sorts of insane savory sweet bmash-ups, but it turns out the TH is capable of creating such monstrosities on its own, thank you very much.

Now available exclusively at the 2014 New York State Fair, the Buffalo Crunch Doughnut is a yeast-based pull-apart donut drowned in hot buffalo sauce and crushed tortilla chips. There’s also a “mild” version with ranch for spice-shy Frankendonut lovers. Each goes for about $2 each, reports First We Feast.

All you really need now is a box of Chicken Fries for dipping and you’ll be golden.

Fried Chicken Pizza Crust

It’s Friday night. Do you go the pizza or chicken route? Granted both sound pretty heavy, but after a long week of work no one wants to unwind with a salad. In one of their biggest moves since they changed their crusts, Dominos just launched four flavors of cheesy chicken crusts dubbed “Specialty Chicken.”

The Specialty Chicken swaps the dough with boneless breaded chicken breasts. The four flavors on deck feature Classic Hot Buffalo, Sweet BBQ Bacon, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple and Crispy Bacon & Tomato. The chicken are cut up into bite sizes and topped with sauce, cheese, veggies and meats.

Available nationwide, the Specialty Chicken is $5.99 at a value deal. If there was any reason to load up on protein people, this is it.

LOL: PETA Claims Eating Chicken Wings Could Affect Your Baby’s Penis Size

chicken-sad-penis

Oh, PETA, you never fail to amuse. Yes, PETA is alleging that eating chicken wings during pregnancy can affect the size of your baby’s penis.  It’s part of their attempt to curb participation in the National Buffalo Wing Festival. Of course.

In a letter from PETA to the festival’s founder, Drew Cerza, the organization claims that “scientific evidence shows that the sons of pregnant women who consume chicken are more likely to have smaller penises because of a chemical found in the birds’ flesh.”  Which, of course, leads us to wonder how the people in Buffalo, NY, home of the Buffalo Wing Festival, fare when it comes to these, um, sizable matters.

According to Women’s Health, they don’t have too much to worry about. The chemical PETA points to is phthalate and while it’s true that boys born to moms with the highest levels of phthalate exposure were more likely to have shorter penises, poultry didn’t rank very high on the laundry list of foods containing the chemical.

P.S.

Spices are actually on top of the list. Gotta love how science does that to you.
