Haters (of which there are many) Are Saying Putting Buffalo Chicken Dip on a Chocolate Chip Cookie is Gross
Saturday night I was at a going away party for a dear, dear eskimo brother of mine.
It was a remarkably bittersweet night because we had all just come from a celebration of life that happened much too soon.
However, if there is one positive that can be taken from it, literally the only one, it's that that situation brought many people together who hadn't been in the same room for years. It was great to see some faces I haven't seen in forever.
If you're still confused with the term bittersweet, have no fear I added a short clip to further explain.
At this point in the night we're all at the going away party, everybody hanging out, having fun, eating apps. It was like a Dave and Buster's.
Despite this being a going away party, it was much like parties of years past at this same home, you can always count on there being some BCD (buffalo chicken dip, for the lames) at these functions. I believe we are all in agreement that buff chick dip is one of the greatest things about being alive; it's fantastic.
Well as the night goes on, the drinks keep flowing, the food starts to dwindle, you can find yourself in a compromising situation. What does one do when there is still BCD, but no more scoops chips?
Well I'll tell ya!
You find the closest thing, in this case, a chocolate chip cookie and throw some BCD on it. (For the record there miiiiight still have been chips left)
Let me tell you, people were acting like I just took a log of shit out of the toilet and starting eating that from the looks of disgust. The screams of horror would've made you think I just shook a newborn. I don't understand what all the fuss is about.
Buffalo chicken dip = awesome.
Chocolate chip cookie = classic treat.
Add them together and you get a best of both worlds: a sweet, and spicy snack.
Buffalo chicken dip is so good that you could put it on pretty much anything and it improves it.
Sure it's unconventional, and given my track record with eating/food, taking advice from me is like getting directions from Hellen Keller, but I still believe the buffalo cookie deserves the benefit of the doubt! Not a single person who called it disgusting tried it! What gives you the right? These same people will lick the anus of another human being, but you throw some BCD on a cookie and that's where the line is drawn? Okay gotcha!
On the surface chicken and waffles have no business being together either, yet that's all the rave at the hipster and soulfood joints. It's v good. I'm a fan!
You know people once/still do (s/o Kyrie) thought the earth was flat. Many thought the light-bulb was a stupid invention too. Why would you ever need that when there's all these perfectly good candles!!! There was also a time when the major belief in this country was "why would anybody ever need a computer in their home?" I'm just saying sometimes the greatest innovators are ridiculed.
Now, I'd be lying if I told you that the bud lights and knowing I'd getting a rise out of people for doing this weren't major factors in taking a such a cuisinial (word I just made up) risk. You can certainly factor those into the equation.
But the point remains, it actually tasted pretty darn good, and I, the only person who had the cajones to take such a leap of faith am being ostracized.
On Sunday I replicated the same sweet and spicy delight.
And again was judged by the haters, who have never tried such a treat.
I wish I saved the snaptexts I received because there were upwards of FIVE replies mocking my bold taste-bud exploration.
So do me a favor, sometime in the upcoming weeks, make yourself a nice buffalo chicken dip, grab a cookie and go crazy. I'm not saying totally replace chips with them, think of the calories! But before you bash a great drunk idea, try it and see for yourself that it's not that bad.
