I totally thought that was just a random grouping of foods. I was actually laughing at your naming it the "Luther Burger" until I realized that you might not be joking. I'm astounded that's a real thing.

BTW, I'm pretty sure Elvis came up with chocolate potato chips. Yeah, it was definitely Elvis, or maybe Jessica Simpson :) /s

No, but the Elvis sandwich is named for him; peanut butter, caramelized bananas and crispy bacon on grilled Hawaiian bread.

Mars bars + salt and vinegar chips is what my friend use to eat all the time.

 

I tried it and it was crazy, but there was something to it.    extreme salt/vinegar/sugar combination.

 

 

 

still, i doubt this will be good.

That's right.

 

For everyone else who don't believe that, read this:

It doesn't sound good at all. Chips + chocolate = bad. Try eating Reeses' after eating Doritos... not good at all.

 

Actually, if you're eating salty chips or sour cream and onion, and you eat a milk chocolate right afterwards, you get a wonderful mix of salt and sweet. I've been thinking someone should do this for a long time, BUT it's not very healthy for you. but then again, candy rarely is :)

That's known as a Luther Burger, which is attributed to being created by the late singer Luther Vandross. Mulligan's in Decatur, Georgia was the first to serve them. Now Krispy Kreme and a few other stores sell them - a marketing success and only ~1,500 calories each.


Damn, I did a Google search and that is one massive patty!

I was thinking of a local variant they showcase at our yearly end-of-summer carnival which is a bit modest: two wet soggy Krispy Kreme donuts with a quarter pounder patty the usual veggies.

Hmmm, I suppose it depends on the flavors. But to be honest, that doesn't sound too appealing either. But, perhaps, I'll try it and see.

No, this not a satirical news story made by the Onion, this is real. Lays will be rolling out a new chocolate covered wavy potato chips next week.

Occasionally, I like to have some original lays chips with my beer.

 

What kind of a drink would go with this? Tea? Coffee? Coke?

 

 

how that any different than bread + chocolate ?

 

Bread isn't made from potatoes, is it? :D

You can make it from rice too if you want. Still, in a common understanding, bread is made from flour derived from cereal grains not potatoes.

Why hasn't anybody still asked the important questions like if they did double-dip those chips?

Bread is made from wheat and flour, not potatoes.
