Kiwi's steak pie and peanut slab combination sparks uproar

Food 12/08/2019

A popular Auckland foodie has caused an uproar on Instagram by posting images of a chocolate-and-meat-filled pie sure to appeal only to those with the munchies. 

Albert Cho has racked up over 34,000 followers on his Instagram page Eat Lit Food,documenting foodie finds around Auckland with expletive-filled humour. 

Most draw favourable feedback from hungry fans, but the post on Sunday of a "humble" Pepper Steak Gourmet Pie from BP outlet Wild Bean Cafe with a Whittaker's peanut slab inserted into it left many outraged. 

"I was just like you. I was absolutely disgusted when I first heard of this combination," Cho wrote in the post's caption, before adding it's "genuinely one of the most insane things I've ever put in my mouth". 

Instructions for putting the 'Cooney Hooney' together include: "Go to the gas station, preferably BP because Wild Bean is f**king wild and get a meat pie. Just make sure there's no cheese in it, because that's too f**king far.

"Take the lid off the pie - a small incision is plenty - take your peanut slab and shove that f**ker in there. Close the lid of the pie, put it back in the paper bag, act like it never happened and just let it sit for about five minutes so it can melt, marinate and create f**king magic. 

"Take a bite and I swear, on my left tit, that your horizons will f**king expand and explode. "

Cho gave the creation a hefty "14/10", but many fans weren't convinced. 

One Instagram user simply wrote: "Delete this". 

"I'm calling the police," added another. 

However, others were willing to give Cho the benefit of the doubt, with many tagging in their pie and/or chocolate loving friends. 

"It's f**king called innovation and we need more of it," wrote one passionate fan. 

A spokesperson for BP says to "watch this space". 

"We encourage our customers to enjoy their pie the way they like it... We regularly introduce new pies to meet demand so perhaps this will inspire a new flavour."
