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.

KFC Romania Testing Crispy Fried Potato Skins

kfc-dipping-fries

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

chickntater

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

shitty-pizza-drop

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

IMG_8163

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.

IMG_8145

__________

Peanut butter and clams

IMG_8709

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.

IMG_8721

__________

Peanut butter, avocado and extra pickles

IMG_8704

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.

IMG_8687

__________

Marshmallow and pepperoni

IMG_7194

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

IMG_7188

__________

Marshmallow and asparagus

IMG_8877

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.

IMG_8889

__________

Guacamole and Marshmallow

IMG_8663

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.

IMG_8640

__________

Butterscotch, onions and anchovies

IMG_8479

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?

IMG_8484

__________

Tea and toast

IMG_8866

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.

IMG_8864

__________

Chocolate sprinkles and clam sauce

IMG_8284

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.

IMG_8250

__________

Chocolate-chip

IMG_8898

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

IMG_8928

__________

Chocolate fudge with extra garlic

IMG_8617

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?

IMG_8621

__________

Chocolate fudge, sardine, chili pepper, whipped cream

IMG_8825

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.

IMG_8835

__________

Anchovies and hot fudge

IMG_8548

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.

IMG_8562

__________

Pepperoni and hot fudge

IMG_8219

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

IMG_8225

___________

Pepperoni and pickles

IMG_8297

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.

IMG_8293

__________

Jelly bean and sausage

IMG_8514

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.

IMG_8533

__________

Salami pizza with double yogurt

IMG_8371

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.

IMG_8388

__________

Shredded coconut and sweet pickles

IMG_8358

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.

IMG_8357

__________

Strawberry with anchovy sauce

IMG_8781

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.

IMG_8782

__________

Hot oatmeal

IMG_8308

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

IMG_8314

__________

Popcorn

IMG_6678

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

IMG_6662

__________

Anchovies and banana

IMG_6656

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

IMG_6651

 

__________

Goulash

IMG_8598

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

IMG_8595

__________

Granola and licorice 

IMG_8422

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

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

Subway-Falafel-Facebook-Profile

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.
