Dear Bon Chon, we are blind worshippers of your chicken wings. Your double deep-fried-goodness keeps us awake for eight nights a week. When we eat Jollibee, we carefully place our Chickenjoy in your box to fool ourselves into thinking that we have you in our midst.
But there’s just one problem.
You’re starting to get boring.
And because we like things interesting, we thought that it might be a good idea for you to make friends with Barrio Fiesta.
As you know, Barrio Fiesta makes this stinky paste called bagoong that we all love. We thought that you guys might make a good pair.
Alas, you might think that what we’ve done is sacrilegious. Maybe it is. (And we don’t care.)
What we’ve created out of your imaginary copulation is a monster far more powerful, more addicting and more mind-blowingly, out-of-this-world delicious than you.
