Sonic ‘Tosses’ and ‘Sauces’ Three 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.

KFC Romania Testing Crispy Fried Potato Skins


With Domino’s serving chicken nuggets and Taco Bell slinging waffles, we wouldn’t be surprised if five years from now, all fast food chains just decided to trade menus entirely. The latest mildly off-brand offering comes to us from KFC Romania, in the form of extra crispy fried potato skins.

Okay, so technically they’re calling them “Dipping Fries,” but we all know what these things really are. Potato skins. Or, if you want to be even more precise, dipping sauce delivery vehicles, because for some reason it’s frowned upon to drink sweet and sour sauce straight from the bottle. The gist is that they’re basically regular fries with the “insides” hollowed out, in order to make room for more dipping sauce. Filling options include garlic sauce, ketchup, curry, sweet & sour, barbecue, and uh, salsa.

Fries and salsa? Whatever, Romania. You do you.

Jack In The Box Testing Chick-N-Tater Melt Topped With Whole Hash Brown and Croissant Bun


More chicken options for Jack in the Box’s infamous Munchie Meals: replacing the Exploding Cheesy Chicken on some menus is this new Chick-N-Tater Melt, which is a croissant sandwich stuffed with a fried chicken patty and asphyxiated in Swiss cheese, bacon, cheese sauce, ranch, and a hash brown.

This perfect, degenerate start to your breakfast shame spiral was spotted by a Brand Eating reader in Northern California, where we’re hoping people really like potatoes. Available as a $6 Munchie Meal from 9 pm to 5 am, the Chick-N-Tater is offered in a combo with two tacos, a drink, and halfsie regular and curly fries. You know, just in case the hash brown wasn’t tuber-y enough.

For a true whole-breakfast-in-one-bite experience, stuff your Chick-N-Tater with mini pancakes and maple syrup. At this point, you really might as well.


What 24 Pizzas From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Look Like IRL


As a kid, I loved watching the ’90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Who didn’t? One of the things that stuck was all the ridiculous pizzas Michelangelo and his brothers would order throughout the series. As the years passed, I started to think some of those pizzas could actually be pretty delicious if done right. Though it did take a solid 22 years for anchovies to grow on me.

Like his Renaissance namesake, who would have thought Mikey was ahead of his time. Using some hunger-fueled imagination I recreated 24 of the most disgusting pizza orders from the TV show and turned them into something you could order at a restaurant. Cowabunga.


Tuna fish, peanut butter and grape jelly


Tuna ahi poke on top of a bed of seaweed salad and drizzled some hot, melted peanut butter and grape jelly on top. Went more for color than taste. Ending up tasting great so that worked itself out.



Peanut butter and clams


Drenched the pizza in a cajun peanut butter sauce with four fresh calms. The heat from the sauce really made the clams, no pun intended, pop. Crawfish for garnish.



Peanut butter, avocado and extra pickles


A bed of guacamole topped with avocado slices, melted peanut butter and some sweet dill pickle chips. This is actually a sandwich I make on many an occasion.



Marshmallow and pepperoni


Pepperoni and cheese pizza topped with roasted marshmallows. The marshmallows look like haunting little lifeboats on a sea of pepperoni.



Marshmallow and asparagus


Asparagus and cheese baked directly into the crust and topped with toasted mini marshmallows. Had to many different versions of this one before I settled on this. Couldn’t be happier.



Guacamole and Marshmallow


A generous heap of freshly made guacamole and topped with a single marshmallow lit on fire. Kids, don’t try this at home. Grownups, go nuts.



Butterscotch, onions and anchovies


Onion and anchovies caramelized in brown sugar and a butterscotch sauce. Tasted great but stunk up my kitchen like nobody’s business. Do turtles have nostrils?



Tea and toast


A buttered slice of toast on top of tomato sauce and sprinkled with tea leaves, parmesan cheese and more tomato sauce. The original concept for this had chunks of toast drenched in tea. NOT. APPETIZING.



Chocolate sprinkles and clam sauce


A cheese pizza made with a hearty clam sauce and chocolate sprinkles and garnished with green onions. Not easy to make clam sauce pop on a pizza. Had to tweak it into a chowder. Master Splinter would be proud.





Chocolate chips baked into the pizza and drenched with a generous amount of hot fudge. It’s essentially a cookie.



Chocolate fudge with extra garlic


A generous amount of fried garlic on top of a pool of melted chocolate fudge. Definitely not something you’d order on a first date, but then again, are any of these pizzas?



Chocolate fudge, sardine, chili pepper, whipped cream


A cheese and whipped cream pizza topped with shaved chocolate fudge and red chili flakes. Served with a fried sardine filet in chocolate fudge sauce. Any nutrients that piece of sardine contains is neutralized by that mountain of whipped cream. I guarantee it.



Anchovies and hot fudge


Hot chocolate fudge drizzled over anchovy filets on a sauceless white pizza. Until the day anchovies turn into giant mutated fish that eat people, they’ll forever be my favorite fish.



Pepperoni and hot fudge


A classic pepperoni and cheese pizza drizzled with a little chocolate fudge. Just a little. We’re not animals.



Pepperoni and pickles


Cheese and pepperoni pizza with sweet dill pickle chips. The pickles add a crunch that can be heard all through the New York sewer systems.



Jelly bean and sausage


A spicy pork chorizo and sour cream pizza topped with queso fresco and fresh cilantro and served with a jalapeño jellybean gastrique. The jelly beans had us stumped but luckily Reddit came to the rescue.



Salami pizza with double yogurt


Two servings of vanilla yogurt topped with fresh salami slices and drizzled with blackberry jelly. If you can get over the idea of salami and yogurt, it goes down pretty tastily.



Shredded coconut and sweet pickles


Pizza is topped with shredded coconut, drizzled with hot mustard and topped with sweet pickle chips. Shredder would be a crazy handy guy to have in this situation.



Strawberry with anchovy sauce


Caramelized strawberries served with an anchovy butter sauce and topped with whipped cream. This one was the most difficult to come up with. Thankfully, whipped cream saved the day.



Hot oatmeal


Hot, buttery oatmeal topped with brown sugar, honey and fresh strawberries. It’s another side to breakfast pizza.





Truffle oil popcorn with parsley flakes and parmesan cheese. There’s a pizza somewhere under that mountain of popcorn.



Anchovies and banana


Caramelized rum bananas and anchovy filets. The pizza that inspired this post. The bananas and anchovies were the perfect balance of sweet and salty.






Hot goulash served with crumbles of queso fresco. After a quick Google search of what exactly goulash was, it was pretty easy to make.



Granola and licorice 


Vanilla yogurt topped with granola and shaved red licorice. It was a bitch to hand shred licorice, but doesn’t it look pretty?

North Carolina Restaurant Serves Up Gravy Flights


Biscuit Head in Asheville, North Carolina serves biscuits “as big as a cat’s head” and launched its gravy flight just three months ago. Each day features new, unique gravies, with your choice of three for only $7.

Whether it’s espresso red-eye, fried chicken gravy, sweet potato coconut, or the “Gravy of the Day,” you get to choose how you dip, or spread, the sauce.  The Biscuit Head also features biscuit sandwiches and sides to go with your biscuits and gravy like bacon, ham, and eggs. While The Gurgling Cod coins this gravy flight as the “Brooklynification of North Carolina,” I can say as someone who spends a great deal of time in Brooklyn, that I wish there was more North Carolinafication around here.

Subway Offers Falafel Sandwich as Veggie Option on East Coast


For those die-hard falafel fans, Subway is serving their on-again, off-again Falafel Sandwich in areas neighboring Washington, D.C.

The falafel sandwich is definitely a choice menu item for veggie lovers or simply those who wish to try something new. The veggie-packed option consists of fried chickpea patties topped with cucumber sauce. Sadly for vegans, the sauce contains dairy but luckily you can customize your Falafel Sandwich to your heart’s (and dietary) content.

Hopefully it’ll be available in the West Coast as well, but until then it’s an East Coast exclusive. Subway’s Falafel Sandwich is available for $4.75 at six-inches and $7.50 for a footlong.
