Who needs some bacon-wrapped hot dogs on a stick? I sure do! Some crazy new food items are “breaking news” today, and a trip down memory lane – a G4 trip to Seoul with the world’s largest beer!
More breaking bacon news to share! Yes, we all love a good BLT…but what about this!
Yes, BLT-flavored potato chips! According to the Gothamist website, Lays released the BLT-flavored chips just in time for…National BLT Sandwich Month! The Huffington Post got a chance to sample the new flavor, and found that they really taste like the sandwich—and that made them feel quite uneasy: “It’s eerie that a potato chip can emulate the taste of a sandwich. The flavors of toasted bread, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise are all evident.”
Nice to see they are available in the handy multi-pack!
And thanks to the terrific website “Laughingsquid.com” for these crazy finds:
Convenience store, 7-Eleven, has produced a new product for their 7-Select line: “Big Bite Hot Dog Flavored Potato Chips.” Yes, a potato chip that taste like a hot dog! If eating an actual Big Bite hot dog from 7-Eleven wasn’t enough, grab a bag of these ketchup, mustard and relish spiced chips and have the ultimate heartburn-inducing meal. No word if there is actual processed meat in these chips.
THE AMAZING SPIRAL HOT DOG!
ALSO FROM LAUGHINGSQUID: Using a metal drill bit and his “fave dog slicin’ knife”, Iowa-based Daryl Downer has transformed ordinary hot dogs into spiral cut ones. He has posted detailed instructions on how to make these at home – Laughingsquid has a link.
SEOUL ON A STICK!
In 2007, a number of G4 staff headed to Seoul to shoot a bunch of segments on technology – so of course, we headed out to find bacon-wrapped hot dogs on a stick!
This led to another amazing discover: krinkle-cut fried that have been baked into a corn dog as well…
First of all, a number of us (Wade!) ate these – and they were delicious…coated with a spicy korean-style glaze that tasted great!
All of this spicy food made us thirsty, of course, so we headed to a bar with the world’s biggest glass of beer. Sorry this is a blurry photo (Wade!), but we did, after all, just have a few beers….
