Chicken Wing Milkshake

If you’re a fan of 30 Rock, milkshakes and Buffalo wings, then you’ll love this article! Or maybe you’re like me and think its subject matter is terrible! Apparently, in an episode of NBC’s 30 Rock, Tina Fey walked by a sign that said, "The Buffalo Chicken Shake is back!" This prompted Lunch Blog KC writer Robert Bishop to create a recipe for a bizarrely intriguing concoction. Here is a video of Robert making the shake alongside Tracey Wigfield, one of 30 Rock’s writers. Personally, I think this recipe is a terrible idea. But if you like the video and would like to make it at home, you can find the recipe in Robert Bishop’s blog.

Personally, I like my Buffalo wings in a more traditional way. If you happen to live in New York, you’re in luck! Every year on Labor Day Weekend a festival called (what else?) the National Buffalo Wing Festival is held in NY. This year’s festival had 85,000 attendees and 555,000 wings were served, which is equal to 37 tons of wings. The festival has become a pretty big deal since its first year in 2002. Furthermore, for a list of the best Buffalo wing restaurants visit Wild for Wings.

So two things come to mind with this article. First, should shows have a moral responsibility to NOT encourage this kind of ridiculous behavior? Second, are we so easily influenced by today’s media that we’re willing to create an obviously fake and over-the-top dish such as this shake? Please feel free to let me know how you feel in the comment section.

  1. Think I'll pass. Chicken wing shake doesn't sound any better (or worse really) than chicken and waffles with syrup.

    Not to be a wet blanket (I really DO have a sense of humor), but stirring up crazy concoctions that are going to end up being tasted and tossed is rather irresponsible in a world where 1/6 of the population is starving.
