WWWWWW #16 - Uncle Eddies Buffalo Claw

Yes, World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. WWWWWW. This is where I will surf the Web, and find other people talking about chicken wings. The world is full of chicken wing stories, wacky and otherwise. Recipes, restaurant reviews, eating contests or whatever. Today's Blog relating to wings in some shape or form:

This is a unique product that I had to talk about. Because it is exciting and terrifying at the same time.

"Lee [Golani] named the company in honor of his Uncle Eddie, now deceased, who was an example to all. Uncle Eddie was a man of principle, with a depth of character and humility that are all too rare in today's world."

So what is the product? What is a Buffalo Claw? Where can I get those glasses and suit???

"Lee found himself with down time during a holiday vacation, an insatiable desire to improve mankind, and the idea of combining a chicken wing and a jumbo shrimp. Drawing on his engineering background, Lee created a tool {patent pending} to insert the shrimp into the chicken wing, and the rest is history!"

"A Shrimp inside
a Buffalo Wing?
It tastes GREAT!"

I have to admit, I would love to try this. I mean I love shrimp, I love Buffalo wings, I love 'Buffalo Shrimp', so this could work. It looks crispy and almost smoked, but the info says they are baked.

The only downside I see is the price. On their website, 30 Buffalo Claws (approx 5 pounds) is $64.00! And you can get them with Sweet Claw Sauce, Sweet Spice Claw Sauce and Hot Claw Sauce (which can also all be purchased by the bottle).

If ANYONE actually tries these, let me know. I'm not going to have the chance to try them anytime soon, but I would love to hear from people who have (the restaurants carrying this are in Indiana, USA). Photos a bonus. I don't think it will catch on big time, but it definitely a unique looking dish.

I just hope these things don't come to life.

Sounds interesting. I wonder about the texture, and the aftermath most of all.

Holy crapoly! That looks, almost worth $64 :)

But damn, that looks seriously good. I'm tempted to call this the best WWWW to date.
