Swedish-based pizzeria Nya Gul & Blå created a unique offering that aims to satisfy diverse cravings all in one go. Known as the Vulcan Pizza, this overwhelming creation takes the concept of "stuffed pizza" to a whole new level. The pizza is crafted in the shape of a star, with each point stuffed with various toppings, ranging from steak and bacon to mushrooms and cheese. Interestingly, at the center of the star lies a salad that isn't as exciting as the rest of the toppings. Adding to the medley of flavors, a generous serving of greasy French fries and accompanying dipping sauces crown the cucumber and lettuce shreds. Priced at $14, customers were given the opportunity to customize each of the Vulcan's "pockets," potentially elevating the flavor profile beyond the standard version.

Tim Hortons Buffalo Crunch Donut

Following the mixed reception of the Buffalo Latte, Tim Hortons decided to push the boundaries even further by introducing new items featuring buffalo sauce. Exclusive to the New York State Fair in Syracuse, one particular creation stole the spotlight: a pastry conceived by Anthony McEachern, who crafts a unique donut for Tim Hortons and the fair annually. In 2014, McEachern surpassed expectations by embracing the iconic Buffalo sauce from upstate New York.

The yeast donut receives a light glaze of the hot sauce, serving as its base, and is then garnished with crumbled Buffalo kettle chips. At the center of the donut, there's a reservoir of Buffalo sauce resembling a frosting, with fragments of tortilla chip jutting out. The design of the donut allows it to be easily torn into small morsels, facilitating dipping into the pool of Buffalo sauce.

In an interview with Fast Company, a Buffalo native acknowledged that while the combination may seem odd, it isn't entirely illogical given the prevalence of Tim Hortons in Buffalo. However, despite the rationale, the prospect of experiencing this particular creation doesn't evoke a sense of regret for missing out on it.
