Chicken wing and ranch milkshake go viral; Buffalo is horrified

Buffalo is proud of many things. Our residents, local businesses, our sports (Bills and Sabers), and yes, food.

Chicken wings are the number one food that Buffalo is known for. There are so many amazing bars and restaurants serving authentic wings in Western New York.

Each Buffalo restaurant serves its wings with blue cheese and celery. Carrots could also be included, but blue cheese and celery are still part of the dish.

It’s an unwritten rule in Western New York that you don’t command a ranch with your wings. It’s ALWAYS blue cheese.

There was a viral tweet this week that featured wings but not Buffalo, not with blue cheese and in a horrible mix.

The University of Miami (FL) is selling a vanilla milkshake with chicken wings, ranch and hot sauce at their game this weekend. Yes really…

The tweet was as they say, “ratio”.

This means that more people replied and quoted the tweet than they actually liked it.

Western New York and Buffalo Bills fans responded in droves to show their displeasure with the concoction.

Wings and ranch are bad enough…but in a milkshake? With hot sauce?

At first I thought the ranch dressing was the base of the dish – wings in a ranch mug, basically. But then I realized it was actually a vanilla milkshake with wings and ranch.

I’m quite adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, but yes, there’s a big ‘no’ on my part.
