Oreos and milk are a traditional combination, but Oreos and mayo? No thanks. At least not for the average human.
But ESPN commentators Mike Golic Jr and Anish Shroff dared to go where Gordon Ramsay would never leave you consuming the, let’s call it “creative,” snack option live during the broadcast of a college football game.
“Mike, you came up with some ideas: unconventional foods that work with mayonnaise. We start with what? Shroff said.
Golic Jr responded with “cream filled cookies here” and proceeded to eat.
“Let’s take a dip,” he said, nodding his approval as he chewed. “It’s a really interesting mix of flavors! Thumbs up for me! “
But Shroff wasn’t experiencing the same level of culinary delight.
“Oh Anish. We’re going to need someone here to call on this next trip. It is not going well. “I’ve seen that face before,” added Golic Jr.
Unsurprisingly, the internet had some thoughts when a clip of the incident, which truly proves America is beyond salvation, went viral in the United States. Journalist Tyler Englander tweeted: “Oreos and mayonnaise sound … absolutely disgusting.”
Matt James from The ringer wrote: “There are several types of insects that I would rather eat than an Oreo dipped in mayonnaise.”
Reporter Korie Dean added: “The broadcasters just dipped Oreos in mayonnaise and I threw up in my mouth. This is going too far. “
As gross as mayonnaise-drenched Oreos sound to the normal folks among us, it’s important to consider the context behind the on-air stunt. It was produced during an annual college football game that has been played in North Carolina for nearly 20 years, now called the Duke’s Mayo Bowl because it is sponsored by the American brand of mayonnaise Duke’s.
And the creamy mix had a bigger role to play than just in the broadcast booth. After South Carolina beat North Carolina 38-21 in this year’s game, winning coach Shane Beamer was forced to take a shower of mayonnaise, dumped with approximately 17 liters of material to celebrate his team’s victory. .
Because Beamer was so kind to turn him into a human sandwich, Duke’s Mayo Bowl will donate $ AUD 14,000 to a charity of his choice.
