chicken and waffles can actually be pretty good together. there is a restaurant in palo alto that i go to that does california style new orleans (sounds awful, ends up pretty damn good) that does seasonal chicken and waffles. usually it's free range organic chicken (fried) with cornmeal waffles and cranberry butter. it's amazing. fatty, full of calories, and delicious. served with gravy and hotsauce. yes hotsauce is one word here.

the processed chips and whatnot do gross me out though. how many flavors can you make up while pumping people full of msg and other chemicals that are designed to make your gross nasty fake food more addictive? but that's okay. we can tax tobacco and pay for hospital care for the obese...

I saw those new bags of chips recently.
I think it was baked potato and cheddar cheese and bacon flavor, with a picture of a baked potato... Caused me to look twice.
Oh and Roscoes rocks!
There's one around the corner from here.
Just don't try to go on Sunday after church...

I don't understand why many of you are disgusted by Chicken & Waffles. It's been around for a good long time. If you like fried chicken and you like waffles, you'll like them together.
I personally like it and can have it for breakfast, lunch or supper, I find nothing strange in it.
Some like to put syrup on there chicken and that's fine, I put syrup on my bacon when I have pancakes,waffles or the like with it. I'd certainly rather eat that then liver or cows brains. I suppose your all disgusted by Craw-fish too, it's just small lobster if ya ask me. Although I'm not a head sucker I enjoy my share of Craw-fish.

I'd eat chicken and waffles. Pigs in a blanket is good, why not chicken and waffles? I've never tried it, but I certainly would if I were near a Roscoes.

But the chemically engineered potato chips.... Suspect

When I want to feel my arteries harden while I eat, I just go to Jack In The Box and order the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger with Curly Fries and a coulpe of 99-cent tacos on the side (with ranch dressing to dip them in).

Cool

IHOP serves it here. And yes, wouldn't touch those but, I stay away from all chips, just not interested in MORE saturated fat.

You get hungry enough you'll be eating bugs and looking forward to a nice fresh road kill snake!
Been there.  Many times.  At first by need, then, oddly, by developed taste.  

(...did I just ruin my street cred as a tobacco reviewer?...)  

I'd much, much, much rather eat a snake than processed mechano-food. pale Seriously.

lol!

I think I just heard Greg Pease cringe in horror. One of his most enthusuastic reviewers, Kyle, now claiming that the latest GLP release has hints of roasted possum flank infused with essence of road tar, and a mineral finish from the rocks that didn't get picked out.

Just a report back on the Chicken and Waffle Lays potato chips. They're just plain salted Lays chips with a light maple flavoring. All that fuss over nothing Laughing

Still, what will cooperate America think of next just to get our money. Lobster & Butter flavored chips? Maybe Craw-fish & hush-puppy?

If the truth in labeling laws keep gaining steam they'll be called sodium, msg and trans fat flavored chips, with a picture of a ruptured artery on the front of the package.

Interesting thread....sort of.

Never was much of a potato chip guy, even though I favor salty foods over sweets.

Only potato chip that ever held any interest for me were the salt & vinegar ones. Liked them just fine.

Alas, I cannot partake of these anymore due to hypertension.  

Oh, and the Chicken and Waffle ones wouldn't interest me anyways. So I got that going for me!

Sorry to hear about your Hypertension BD, don't know much about it. Is it the salt that affects it?

I myself am Hyperactive, caused by a number of things that all have different names nowadays, most initials. LOL!

The artificial flavoring is most irrelevant.. it's not like bbq flavored is any less artificial..

The true killer hiding in our food is high fructose corn syrup.. not the flavorings.

We have a restaurant (I use that term loosely) here in College Station, Texas that specializes in Southern fried bacon.  They bread it, fry it bacon grease and then serve it with a side of bacon gravy.  The owner tells me he sells all he can make.  Hardening arteries in deed. Smile

Having actually had chicken 'n waffles, I can say it's pretty good. Those chips however are just disgusting sounding. No thank you.

Yep. The stabilizers, artificial binders and other crap, mixed with that...

...I'd still eat a snake out of the bush any day.

No commenting, PeeB. No. No Laughing
