However, I would totally buy from any chain or restaurant that started a fast food collaboration with my favorite chip/salty snack: Funyuns.
Funyuns are perfect. They have been around for 50 years, so it’s a CLASSIC. They are onion-y without giving you raw onion breath or onion burps. They are yellow, the happiest color. They are rings, good for twirling. They have a delightful mouth feel, and they don’t tear up the roof of your mouth. They leave a delightful residue on your fingers (save it for later!) that doesn’t require bleach and a Magic Eraser to remove.
The branding world loves a good collab to elevate trends and build hype. Bodega x New Balance. Kim Jones x Dior. Gucci x Dapper Dan. How about we elevate our junk food with these Funyuns x collab suggestions. All free. Steal away, Madison Avenue.
