Jan 30, 2009: Super Snack

Hmmm, Friday image.
Well it's kind of warm, but no too fuzzy.
It is edible though, if you've got the constitution of a garbage disposal.

Holy Taco designed and built this special for the Super Bowl.



Guacamole, Queso Dip, Salsa, Sour Cream, Vienna Sausages, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Slim Jims, Monterey Jack, Twinkies, Bacon, Nacho Cheese Doritos, Cheetos, Corn Tortilla Chips, Chex Mix, and a 20 Oz. Football-Shaped Summer Sausage for the (optional) Blimp.

TOTAL CALORIES: 24,375
TOTAL GRAMS OF FAT: 1,285

I'll take a lot of beer to wash that sucker down.



DucksNuts  Friday Jan 30 02:26 AM

I dont know what...

Vienna Sausages, Slim Jims, Monterey Jack, Twinkies, or Chex Mix...but I will try anything twice

Are they twinkies around the outside? I've only had twinkies once and they are gross!!!!



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jan 30 02:41 AM

Around the outside... check.
Gross... check.
Yup, that be them.

You can see how it's assembled at the link.



SPUCK  Friday Jan 30 04:43 AM

Yes that IS them - little cakes filled with white pus.



newtimer  Friday Jan 30 06:18 AM

Looks like a piece of bacon is trying to escape by climbing over the Twinkies closest to the camera.



spudcon  Friday Jan 30 06:23 AM

Remove the toothpicks before letting your dog eat it.



capnhowdy  Friday Jan 30 07:12 AM

Truly a gastronomical masterpiece. It'll take a lot of beer to get the balls to eat this.



Pie  Friday Jan 30 08:41 AM

If you replaced the twinkies with shortie coldcut subs, you might have a more appetizing edifice.



TheMercenary  Friday Jan 30 09:50 AM

Holy crap! That is crazy!



Cloud  Friday Jan 30 09:57 AM

what, they're hanging the sausage from the light fixture?



TheMercenary  Friday Jan 30 10:07 AM

You could gain weight just looking at that picture.



glatt  Friday Jan 30 10:14 AM

I'd eat some of it. Mostly just taking some of those tortilla chips and dipping them in the salsa end zone. That would be fine. The twinkies and bacon are kind of gross though.



Cane  Friday Jan 30 10:46 AM

This snack, which screams, "eat me," in its own way, is the Jeffrey Dahmer Special. (AMC had a biographical movie about him on last night.) It was concocted by a person who sees his/her fellow human beings as just so many snacks. Every time this person bites into a corn chip, pops a cheese doodle in his/her mouth or munches down a handful of Chex mix, he/she grins wickedly and imagines that the salty taste fits right in, and crunching sounds are from the bones.

"They say he's got to go, g-go-go Godzilla . . ."



chrisinhouston  Friday Jan 30 11:10 AM

There was some guy on NPR who wrote a book on the Super Bowl who said that the National Avacado Council (yea there is a trade group for everything) estimates that on Super Bowl Sunday if you add up all of the guacamole eaten that day it would fill a pro football stadioum 9 feet deep. Be a great place to take a belly flop!



Undertoad  Friday Jan 30 11:19 AM

They're lining up on their own 10 and it's first and goal at the 10.

I'm betting on the white cheese team because somebody has et the yellow cheese team running back.



Clodfobble  Friday Jan 30 11:53 AM

Man, now I have a craving for queso and guacamole and salsa. But is it strong enough to haul the kids to the TexMex place for lunch? Decisions, decisions...

Shoulda been sausage & jalapeno kolaches. (Not really kolaches, I know, but some donut places call it a kolache).

Clod, I discovered a great trick for taking small, messy eaters into public:
Go to one of those places where you can throw your peanut shells on the ground--do you have a Logan's Roadhouse?


jinx  Friday Jan 30 12:02 PM

The twinkies and the bacon make no sense. I like Pie's sub idea... burritos or taquitos would also work... otherwise seems like a lot of dip and not too many chips.

Yeah, but... they don't serve queso and guacamole and salsa.

Ah hell. That does it. I'm just going to go to the grocery store and get taquitos, guacamole, and stuff to make queso. (I always have salsa in the house, at least.)


Flint  Friday Jan 30 12:07 PM

Gawd, I could eat Tex Mex every freakin' day. In fact, having a going-away luncheon for a co-worker, and I brought Pooka's enchilada cassarole.

They stopped those kinds of restaurants around here. The slip and fall injury lawsuits really cut into the profits.

(which is really a shame, because I enjoyed East Side Marios. They had good drinks)


jinx  Friday Jan 30 12:16 PM

Oh, I loved Mario's... used to go there for lunch all the time (my office was 2 lights away). The food was good anyway... the servers screaming "TAXI!" all the time was annoying...



Pie  Friday Jan 30 12:26 PM

We're going to a cow-orker's sb party, and I think I'll make salsa chicken served on corncakes. Guess I've thrown my lot in with Arizona rather than Pittsburgh.

I don't work with recipes, but I'm thinking something like this:
Buy a rotisserie chicken, cool and shred meat (mostly dark meat). Run it through with a knife if the shreds are too long.
Mix with one of Rick Bayless's tomatillo salsas. Rest overnight in the fridge to allow flavors to mingle. Before serving, reheat, drain off any liquid and combine chicken with minced red onion, chilies, cilantro. Top with queso fresco and pepitas (if I can find them!)

Make dollar pancakes with cornbread batter (with roasted corn kernels and garlic added).

Serve a bowl of the salsa chicken surrounded by corncakes on a large platter.



TheMercenary  Friday Jan 30 12:42 PM

I think they would get bogged down in the Cheese end.



Stormieweather  Friday Jan 30 12:43 PM

I can't stand guacamole. Or most of the stuff on the 'platter'. Now, if it consisted of olives, cheese, salami, pickles, and maybe some chips...you'd have to pry me off it.



Sundae  Friday Jan 30 02:53 PM

It's all fun and games now, but it'll never survive a category 5

They're making a comeback though - Lonestar (at least the one on 202 in DE) and the "Five Guys Burgers and Fries are doing it...


Shawnee123  Friday Jan 30 07:05 PM

Even in places where you are supposed to throw peanut shells on the floor, I always felt bad about doing so.



Cloud  Friday Jan 30 07:52 PM

haha. We have Texas Roadhouse. yum. But I usually dump the peanut shells on the table. I figure, it's still messy, still fun, but the waiters can just swipe 'em off.



capnhowdy  Friday Jan 30 09:12 PM

The game would be long for my team. First thing I'd eat would be the goalposts.
[bunch a ants running around on top]
" yo man.. what the.. where the..why the .. fuck it. Les eat!" "I didn't wanna play anyway."
Start salty, end sweet.



monster  Friday Jan 30 09:24 PM

Well I'm disappointed. I enjoy the "let's turn the cute Friday animal into a snack". But hey, a change is as good as a rest, so let's turn the Friday snack into a cute animal....

(Brits: yes, those are cherry lips .... memory lane..... aaah...)

When I go hiking I allow 3,000 calories per day. Non-active, 2,000 is plenty. That ... err .... thing ... is 8 to 12 days worth of food. You could reasonably serve 24 - 36 people with it, and probably more, except that their dietitians would have you for attempted murder. With all those twinkies, I wonder how many grams of sugar it has.

My liver just threw up a little bit into my gall bladder.

One 43g Twinkie contains 2% of the recommended daily amount (RDA) of iron but none of the RDA for vitamins A and C and calcium. Each cake has 5g of fat (2g of which are saturated), 20mg of cholesterol, 2000mg of salt, 25g of carbohydrates (of which 14g is sugar), 1g of protein and absolutely no fibre whatsoever.
From this little gem of a site unwrapping the twinkie enigma.
