ITT: insanely unfitting meal combinations
how did anyone even get the idea to mix chicken with waffles?
strangely enough you can find most of these abominations in the american cuisine
i wonder why so many americans are living so unhealthy
I tried chicken and waffles for the first time yesterday. I thought it would be kinda crap.
It was the best breakfast meal I've ever tasted. I highly recommend it. Black people finally got something right.
Harlem post WWII idea of decadence, just like the zoot suit. Black New Yorkers, including many recent arrivals from the Great Migration had made it through the war and suddenly got a taste of boom times. The idea of eating something as decadent as fried chicken and waffles together as a meal wile wearing a suit made from far more material than was necessary was a celebration of those times. As was wearing out a pair of Stacey Adams shoes dancing nights away at clubs.
It's really no more excessive than the white West Cost boom meal of a burger, fries and a milkshake eaten in your car, and brought to you by a waitress wearing roller skates.
We can look back on it and see it as silly, but the combination of coming out of a world war straight into an economic boom led people to embrace eating combinations of foods that showed their exuberance. The existed as oddities before the war, but after they became symbols of the boom times following it.
This stuff is literally 'I'll try it once just to try it' kind of food. I don't think anyone really likes it. I've had chocolate covered bacon and it's disgusting, tastes like dog food. But they're typically sold at fairs and events, and that's why they make money. No one would ever regularly eat this kind of thing.
This is legitimately good because bacon goes well with maple flavor.
It tastes alright, I don't get the hype but it tastes okay.
I can't imagine the combination of crispy bacon and soft donut dough as being good. Maple syrup and bacon could be tasty though.
Although the photo suggests that there's way too much bacon on that thing.
>hating on Chicken and Waffles
confirmed for pasty teenagers afraid of trying new things
Meme food for their underdeveloped brains. Mental retardation is the only reason I can think of for someone becoming fat. It means you woke up every morning, looked in the mirror, and said "I'm okay with this".
The same people who thought it was a good idea to mix your mother and a kennel full of horny dogs.
I had it from a yuppie-ish place and they served it with boneless chicken, which makes infinite more sense to me so you can eat it with the waffle. Also a spicy honey sauce instead of syrup. Good shit.
nigga1: Imma have chicken for breafaste
mama nigger: no boy you're gonna have a healthy breakfast
nigga1: no I want fried chicken
mamma nigger; well you gone have some waffle wit dat chicken boy
plus somehow became a political statement about putting on a show about how you dont care about yadda yadda societies and medias standard of beauty and fitness yadda yadda, youre not a sheep if you talk nonstop about how much you eat bacon (just a cow) yadda yadda
I didn't understand syrup until my northern friend brought down the kind he gets in his country. There was a world of difference. It really put it in perspective, how I'm probably just eating all the wrong brand things
