9 Crazy New Food Concoctions

9 Crazy New Food Concoctions

Hey, you can’t eat healthy 24/7, right? These strange food hybrids and inventions are not for the faint of heart (or the tight of pants).


Wine Milkshake

Your favorite childhood treat and your favorite adult treat, together at last at Red Robin. The chain’s adult-only shakes are a mix of wine, vodka, and soft-serve ice cream.


Milk and Cookies Shot

From the culinary genius who brought us the cronut comes an inventive take on a favorite childhood treat (do I sense a theme here?). New Yorkers can now line up outside of Dominique Ansel Bakery to try the milk and cookies shot—a chocolate chip cookies molded into the shape of a shot glass and filled with vanilla-infused milk. Well that’s one way to get your calcium.


The Doughscuit

Okay so the name doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but you have to admit this half-doughnut, half-biscuit at Endgrain in Chicago looks pretty good. Have yours with sweet brown sugar glaze, toasted coconut flakes, and filled with a blend of crème fraîche and chocolate ganache, or glazed in honey and filled with crème fraîche.


The Giant Corn Dog

Stadium food just got cheesier…and bacon-ier. The Arizona Diamondback just introduced a new corn dog with a whopping 18 inches of bacon and cheese, in fact—but you’ll probably want to share with a friend. The D-bat Dog will sent you back $25.


The Mashed Potato Hot Dog

Still hungry after your giant corndog? The West Michigan Whitecaps are testing new concessions for 2014—including mashed potato hot dogs, which are exactly what they sound like. Think they’ll offer the option of sweet potatoes for a healthier option?



It’s not a croissant, and it’s not a bagel—it’s the best of both carby worlds. Perfectly flaky but sturdy enough to be cut in half, this gift to the universe can currently be found at The Bagel Store in Brooklyn, NY…but we’re sure delis all over the country will soon follow.


Cheetos Macarons

Macarons are having a moment—and New York City’s Macaron Parlour Patisserie serves up more than the usual pistachio and chocolate flavors, with a Cheetos-infused white chocolate ganache variety.


Pepsi Cheetos

It looks like Cheetos are having a moment too. And if having your soda on the side of your bag of cheesy snacks is too tedious, you can head to Japan for Pepsi-flavored Cheetos. According to the LA Times, they “replace that classic cheese flavor with a fizzy cola flavor that actually fizzes in your mouth.”


Deep-Fried Tacos

If we’ve learned anything from deep-fried Oreos and deep-fried Twinkies, it’s that deep-frying makes an already good thing even better (no?). At least, that’s the thought behind the deep-fried tacos at Otto’s Tacos in New York City.


Which of the these would you try?

Those SOUND good but I wonder how many extra preservatives are in them. Some of them look like empty calories too.

the milk and cookie shot was the only thing that sounded interesting, the rest sound gross. Pepsi flavoured cheetos! That's just wrong on several levels.

GROSS. No interest in any of those. Thanks

The milk and cookie "shot" looks/sounds pretty awesome, I must admit.. :-)

Thank you

Yuck, none of these sound good at all. Just what we don't need is more food combos that cause illness and obesity. Brother, what some places won't do to get noticed!

7:57AM PDT on Apr 21, 2014

There's nothing healthy about any of these concoctions!

E-w-w ....I don't think they sound very good.

i can see that having a critter door can both interesting, and annoying at times

I still say moderation is the key. If I splurge on lunch, I usually have oatmeal for dinner. My 's…

Thanks for sharing.
