There are some strange food ideas floating around in modern times, but few rile the emotions so much as the notion of boneless chicken wings.
One man in Lincoln, Nebraska (Sister city suggestion Mayor Flaherty?) has gone on the attack against this culinary outrage.
A chicken wing, by definition, is the wing of a chicken, which contains a few bones.
Go to Woolies or Drakes and ask for a boneless wing in the deli, or even Port Lincoln Gourmet Meats or Cummins Meat Store.
You won’t get too far.
But this merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to culinary crimes.
Matcha is on my hit list.
It’s not that I’m opposed to green.
Green was my favourite colour as a kid.
But it’s that TONE of green, and have you ever tasted Matcha?
It belongs in the corner bin, with coriander, as it tastes about as nice.
Speaking of things that make your mouth want to cave in like a black hole, who thought it would be a good idea to try raw cacao?
Cacao is what chocolate comes from, but chocolate contains sugar and milk and other nice things.
Raw cacao is about as bitter as a Crows fan after a Port premiership.
Then there’s pumpkin cheesecake.
What the hell is wrong with people?
Get to any café worth its’ salt and you can enjoy a good cheesecake with chocolate, caramel, strawberry, passionfruit, citrus or any other variety of flavours!
Why put a VEGETABLE into something so sweet, creamy and heavenly?!
And don’t even get me started on that mid 20th century idea of an entire salad or fruit salad contained with a case of plain jelly.
Are we trying to spam-ise a whole meal now?
Trendsetters came up with these ideas, yet good Polish foods like golabki get a bum wrap.
Now I’m off my soap box, what food do you think the world can do without?
And what’s your secret favourite food not enough people know about?
