This is gourmet chocolate with a fun twist. The first half of the Combo Birthday Chocolate Pizza Candy and Wings is, of course, the Candy topped Chocolate Pizza. It starts with a blend of rich milk or dark chocolate and homemade English toffee trimmed with a border of colorful chocolate candies. Happy Birthday wishes are hand-scripted in white chocolate before being sealed in cellophane and served in a custom pizza box. The second half of this dynamic duo is the Peanut Butter Wings -crisp, rippled potato chips covered in creamy peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. Simply amazing!
“Wings”, or “chicken wings” as we commonly know them today, were started in Buffalo, New York in 1964 at the Anchor Bar owned by Teressa and Frank Bellissimo. The “wing” portion of the chicken was considered worthless at the time and often discarded or dropped in a pot to make chicken stock. According to the Smithsonian, the generally accepted narrative was that the wings were delivered to the bar one day by mistake and so rather than use them in their spaghetti sauce they created a bar appetizer by splitting them into “drumsticks” and “flats” and coating in a homemade hot sauce of cayenne and butter. The bar snack became an instant hit and customers immediately began ordering pizza with a side of wings – the pizza and wings combo was born.
Our Wings are born of that same satisfying feeling. A writer for Fancy Food & Culinary Products blog (9-23-16) put it this way when they first tasted our Peanut Butter Wings, “It’s a fantastically rich experience that make your eyes pop out a little when you realize what you’ve gotten yourself into. Halfway through one chip and I melted; all the stresses of the day faded, and it was just me and my wings for a blissful two minutes. Then I sinned: I got up to have another. So that’s four minutes. OK, and then another. Count ’em, six minutes of true bliss …”
The blogger also understood that Peanut Butter Wings are one of the most unique gifts you can give, “It’s definitely a memorable gift, too, because it’s so unique; I haven’t seen anything like them. And I keep going back to that potato chip – it’s genius; it’s a different take on something that everyone knows and everyone loves.”
The first recorded use of the term “pizza” was in the central Italian region of, Gaeta, in 997 AD. Based on an ancient flatbread it was topped with simple herbs and cheese. Pizza would arrive to the shores of America in the late 19th century with Italian immigrants. The first printed reference to pizza appeared in an article from the Boston Journal in 1904.
