Chicken wing and ranch milkshake go viral; Buffalo is shocked

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 Buffalo is known for. There are so many incredible bars and restaurants in western New York that serve authentic wings.

Every Buffalo restaurant serves their wings with blue cheese and celery. Carrots might also be included, but blue cheese and celery are always part of the dish.

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

There was a viral tweet this week showing wings, but not in Buffalo, not with blue cheese, and in an awful 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, “proportionate”.

That means more people replied and tweeted it than actually liked it.

Western New York and Buffalo Bills fans responded in large numbers to show their displeasure with the brew.

Wings and Ranch is bad enough… but in a milkshake? With hot sauce?

At first I thought the ranch dressing was the base for the dish — essentially, ranch wings in a cup. But then I realized that it was actually a vanilla milkshake with wings and ranch.

I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, but that’s just a big ol’ no from me.
