Are you ready to make some really bad decisions in regards to your body and what you put on and in it? Sure you are, which is why our inboxes are inundated with bizarre holiday-themed pitches from restaurants hoping you’ll want to eat/drink the 2,500 calorie bombs they’re shouting about all over their social media channels. Below, the five most outrageous Halloween foods Big Restaurant PR is pushing this season.
From the Financial District restaurant behind the $2,000 pizza comes “The Skull,” a candy pizza that involves not only obscene amounts of sugar, but also promises pyrotechnics. This pizza has everything: Nutella sauce, gummy worms, a gelatinous skull that explodes with creamy white brains. Wait, what? “Industry Kitchen will light the skull on fire and its marshmallow brain will explode out of it!” says the excited press release for this “pizza.” At least there’s no pineapple on it. 70 South Street, (212) 487-9600; industry-kitchen.com
The burger shop that almost killed our intern can’t stop, won’t stop, creating “milkshakes” that defy the laws of both gravity and good sense. Their latest: the Halloween Crazy Shake” ($15), which, to be fair, could be the name of any one of their cookie-and-candy creations minus the holiday designation. Available at any NYC location, the HCS tops a pumpkin shake with (deep breath) vanilla frosting, candy corn, a slice of pumpkin pie, whipped cream, a chocolate lollipop in the shake of a pumpkin, and…a cherry. It’s only available Halloween day, so plan your calorie tracking appropriately. Multiple Locations; blacktapnyc.com
