Couldn't bring myself to post this in the food section, because I'm not so sure it's really food. It is about food, and has an image of food on it, and probably smells kinda like food.... At what point does society just put soylent green in a sack and put a picture of food on it? Have we arrived?

Actually, soylent green would have some nutritional value compared to this stuff....

The grandkids were telling me about these. "AWESOME" and "TOTALLY WICKED" was what I was told.

 I try to keep an open mind but I've never understood how waffles and chicken go together.

Waffles and BACON I could understand. Chicken and bacon, even bacon and bacon, but waffles?

Yes they have...

Pepsi flavored Cheetos. I don't think these are available in the US yet...but I can't say I really care to try them.

I just don't get it. Why flavor a potato chip? If you like chicken and waffles eat chicken and waffles.

It's almost like they're using potato chips like an NDS (Nicotine Delivery System), but in this case it would be FDS (Flavor Delivery System).

Disclaimer. I was able to take the picture of this bag because we purchased it. As Mark said, the kids think it's cool. We try to feed them about 90% wholesome food and 10% junk. It's just not fair to not let them have some fun, but they do understand it's not really good for them. I can't be a phony and preach 100% healthy to them while I sip my bourbon and eat my ice cream. We try to be reasonably healthy though and this kind of thing is a rare treat for them. Usually something like this would never get in the door.

My fear, however, is not the occasional fun (which on the surface this appears to be) but the overwhelming sense that most of the readily available and affordable food sold in most stores is engineered and toxic when it's the staple source of consumption. Soylent Green is here.

I will return with a tasting review Laughing

I think chicken and waffles actually is considered Soul Food. It's for real.

I thought soylent green was an fictional engineered food source that became toxic to the people. Wasn't it from an old sci fi movie?

Edit, just read the wiki on the movie. Turns out soylent green was an engineered food source, that turned out to be made from human corpses. They probably died from eating chicken and waffles.

I felt my arteries clog by just looking at the picture. Can't be good to have that much terrible food as a meal nor as a flavored potato chip.

Roscoe's been doing chicken & waffles for years now. It's a helluva combination actually, though not to everyone's taste obviously! Just make sure you're burning off all those extra calories, 'cause that stuff kill ya if you eat enough of it! Twisted Evil 




Calling it Soul Food is a stretch IMO, but it's definitely a traditional dish right across america. NPR did a piece on it a while back ... Arrow

Made me think for a minute. In the artificial taste testing department, someone would have had to say "Hey, this tastes just like hedgehog!". Which means that someone had to eaten a hedgehog in the past. Then I remembered a story about people eating hedgehogs during WW2!

No, that was Andy (a.k.a. Greyson) who hasn't been seen for some time.

I'm not gonna pull the "my body is a temple" b.s., but I can certainly say it isn't a science experiment nor a waste disposal facility. Gross. No
