Here at Buffet o’ Blog I often write about topics I find humorous, although sometimes the topic turns to food. So when I found these videos that combine humor and food, I had to write about it.
There’s an online food show called “Worst Foods Hall of Shame”. The basic premise is that the host tries unusual recipes that are sent in by readers. As you might guess by the title, some of the concoctions are nasty. But there are some that you’ve probably never heard of but will be tempted to make. The episode linked below has one of each.
In this video the host, Shawn McKee, tries 3 reader-submitted recipes. The first involves Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies topped with sliced cheese. He says they’re okay but missing something, so he improvises and adds maple syrup. The second recipe consists of chocolate cake donuts topped with can tuna (packed in oil). That one sounds incredibly gross. He tries it, and says, “It’s even worse than you’d think it would be. Oily tuna on a chocolate donut? Amazing… amazingly bad.” His third recipe is called “crack weenies”, which are made from smokies and bacon, and it sounds good. (Perhaps we’ll try that last one at a future Buffet o’ Bacon event.)
In that video, he references “bacon candy”. If you’re still reading, I figure you’re interested, like I am. So here’s that video. (A short synopsis is candy made from butter and sugar, a gelatinous mix made from cottage cheese, Jello, and ranch dressing, and then bacon candy. Only one of those am I interested in trying.)
