With the recent existence of cronuts (croissants shaped and cooked like donuts) which started at Dominique Ansel Bakery and proliferated under different species names and now this new Thanksgivukkah 2013 special from Zucker Bakery, do you have a favorite unusual food hybrid that recently popped up (something new and unusual which is a cross between two or more types of foods ... like turducken but newer and less recognizable)?

Thanksgivukkah 2013

Just in time for Thanksgivukkah, try our limited-series gourmet turkey-stuffed donuts. The convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah is happening for the first time in over 100 years this November and there is no better way to celebrate! The donuts will come in four flavors, ranging from savory to sweet: Spiced pumpkin donuts with TURKEY and GRAVY filling, Spiced pumpkin donuts with TURKEY and CRANBERRY filling, Spiced pumpkin donuts with CRANBERRY SAUCE filling, Sweet potato donuts with TOASTED MARSHMALLOW cream filling.


Personally I tried the crumbnuts which are the Crumbs version of the noncreme filled cronut. They were a bit dry but edible. I also tried The Food Emporium's version (cremefilled) and they were mindblowingly delicious.

Some tasty reading material for your perusal. It's kind of stale as it's from June:

@Region Philbis,
I remember liking Cheetos, so help me, and now I consider them frankensteinian - but I know that's not what you mean Tsar. I'll keep my eye out for some of the stuff raved about on the SF Chronicle food articles. There must be dozens and dozens there.

@ossobuco,
Cheetos never caught on over here, they're similar to, but not as good as, Wotsits.

@farmerman,
You must hate Philadelphians as a Phillie roll is cream cheese and salmon! All they want to do is share their brotherly love for such a delicious sushi roll!

But sushi with cream cheese has been around a decent time... not quite what I meant by new hybrid/Frankenstein foods.

@tsarstepan,
Yes, that is desecration of the SUSHISAAMA's art.
Any of those
Hot spicy roll, San Francisco roll. Philly roll. They all suck .

Yes but sushi rolls with cream cheese or mayo are things concocted here in US and they taste terrible.

How about
Breakfast eggnbacon in a glazed donut bun?
Does that make you puke?

@izzythepush,
You can add anything you want I guess. I had to look it up to see why you would consider it new, popular, and Frankensteinian.

It sounds more like the Indian version of General Tso's chicken, a Chinese style food that was born in the US not actually China. But from the same article, it's approximately 50 years old if the cited source is solid.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_tikka_masala

Also, it's not an unusual dish as it sounds like a variant/improv dish based on Indian cuisine and seasonings.

@tsarstepan,
It's a British dish, invented when curry houses became popular. It's been used as a symbol of modern multicultural Britain. The story (probably apocryphal) goes that when someone was served Chicken Tikka, they asked for a sauce to go with it.

Why can't General Tso's chicken be a Chinese version of Chicken Tikka Masala?

@izzythepush,
Technically General Tso's chicken is a faux Chinese invention. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Tso's_chicken

It was created in the US. Like the Caesar salad was actually first created in Mexico rather then the assumed Italy.

@tsarstepan,
It's not easy to come by over here. Most of our Chinese restaurants are Cantonese/Hong Kong in origin.

@izzythepush,
sushi with cream cheeses are an abomination and the inventors of those should be kept from reproducing.
"Spicy tuna roll" is godawful.

The countryside versions of the traditional "Hoagie" sammich (originally named the "Hoggie" after the ship and boatworks of Philadelphia).
As the hoagie spread around the nation it gathered appendages like (SPAM HOAGIES) or Turkey loaf, American cheese and mayonnaise hoagies.
GAG me.

BOXED mac and cheese (by outfits like Kraft) aren't even good trail food .(where you get so hungry the first day youd eat the box.
Everything , EVERYTHING made as a Frankenfood option, slapped together by some flavor and fragrance douches, are made with xtra helpings of SALT and little else.

“Cronut”
Used to mean: Er…what?
Now means: A croissant mashed up with a doughnut, which is then licked by God.

The glazed croissants they serve at the VA cafeteria in Temple. They are actually good enough to drive 80miles for at 7:00 in the morning for a 10:oo appointment get one. Whoever makes the glaze puts a drop of almond flavoring in the glaze.
