Buffalo Wild Wings Adds White Truffle Buffalo Sauce To Its Lineup

The combination of earthy, rich truffle and hot sauce has become popular in recent years. Sauce maker TRUFF got the flavor train started with its sleek bottles and craveable flavor combo. Trader Joe’s later followed suit with its own version.

Buffalo Wild Wings is now joining the party with its own spicy truffle concoction, combining white truffles and buffalo sauce to make “Truffalo,” its newest hot sauce flavor.

The wing chain claims to be making the sauce with real white truffles, but otherwise, they are using the same buffalo wing sauce that it’s known for. Adding white truffle into the name and flavor mix, however, adds a hit of bougie to the mix, considering how expensive the real stuff can get (over $2000 per pound in some cases).

Ordering the wings is definitely a status play move, but it also adds some serious flavor. Considering how rare truffles are, a major chain like Buffalo Wild Wings incorporating them into the menu is huge, and could be a sign of things to come as the truffle hot sauce craze continues.

Buffalo Wild Wings’ new flavor is available for a limited time, and, since it is using truffles, comes at a slight upcharge of $1 for any order the sauce is in.

$20 White Truffle Doughnut Could Possibly Dethrone the Cronut

White-Truffle-Donut

Just when you thought donuts couldn’t get more insane than being stuffed with S’mores a White Truffle Doughnut comes along and changes the game all over again.

Fancier than a cronut and significantly more expensive at $20 a pop, the yeast based doughnut is literally dripping in white truffle syrup, three grams white truffle shavings, fleur del sel and Valrona chocolate shavings. The doughnut is the result of a collaboration between Do-Rite chefs and Rodrick Markus, owner of Lakerview’s Rare Tea Cellar made it’s Chicago debut on Wednesday, December 11. Chef Harris D’Antignac has high expectations for his new creation, “Hopefully we’ve got ourselves the next cronut.”

The grandiose doughnut might not be for everyone which is why it’s being promoted more as a luxury treat than standard menu addition but so far customer reactions on Twitter have been nothing but positive.

The White Truffle Doughnut is only available during truffle season which gives gourmands until about mid-January to get themselves to Chicago to try the decadent pastry but plan on calling ahead to guarantee yourself one.
