Last night’s series finale of Breaking Bad may have left viewers emotional (did it? We’re not sure, we’re still catching up…) But what better way to commemorate one of television’s most epic series than with food? Check out our list of Breaking Bad-inspired snacks and cocktails, and if you made your own TV treat, let us know and we’ll add it here.
Albuquerque’s own doughnut shop Rebel Donut has concocted a Heisenberg electric blue doughnut, topped with blue crystal rock candy.
Sampled by none other than Aaron Paul himself.
Since Los Pollos Hermanos won’t grace television anymore, carry on the tradition and make the fried chicken yourself. The ‘official’ fry batter is sold on The Fancy, so get it before it’s gone! Or try out The Hungry Bunnie’s recipe for homemade fried chicken.
Get your candy meth fix by cooking it yourself. These guys show you how to make your own Heisenberg hard candy in just 12 steps. All you need is water, corn syrup, sugar, cream of tartar, blue food coloring, Blue Curaçao and a pinch of chili powder.
Use your homemade rock candy to garnish a true Breaking Bad-inspired cocktail. Thrillist offers up 3 cocktail recipes, and since we’re not sure how we feel about crumbled Funyuns in a drink, we prefer this one, the Blue Sky. It uses Pisco brandy, Absinthe, Orgeat, egg white, Blue Curacao and soda. Fancy, we know (what is Orgeat anyway?). Shake up the college version with a few ice cubes and some overzealous splashes of UV Blue.
These cookies from Semi Sweet Designs might look semi-toxic, but we bet they’re pretty tasty.
Semi Sweet kills it again with Breaking Bad cupcakes. See the recipe here.
Rice and beans, rice and beans, ricin beans! Ha! Funny, until you’re dead. Ricin is poison. Keep it away from your beans.
Did you know?
Jesse Pinkman loves Funyuns. Duh.
Remember Guardano’s? The Mexican restaurant where Walt, Skyler, Marie and Hank shared a painfully awkward conversation, interrupted by the overeager waiter, Trent? Well, Guardano’s is a real restaurant in a mall in Albaquerque, and they really do make table side guacamole. Read about how Breaking Bad influenced sales here.
In real life, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston love Italian food. At least we spotted them at Otto in NYC a few weeks ago, so we’re making an educated guess. See our stalker pics below.
“Chick’s got an ass like an onion…makes me want to cry.” – Hank
“Sitting around, smoking marijuana, eating Cheetos and masturbating do not constitute ‘plans.’” – Walt
“Yo, Gatorade me, bitch.” – Jesse
“Since when do vegans eat fried chicken?” – Hank
Walt: Castor beans.
Jesse: So, what are we going to do with them? Are we just gonna grow a magic beanstalk? Huh? Climb it and escape?
Walt: We are going to process them into ricin.
Jesse: Rice ’n Beans?
Walt: Ricin. It’s an extremely effective poison.
“Did you know that there’s an acceptable level of rat turds that can go into candy bars? It’s the government, jack. Even government doesn’t care that much about quality. You know what is okay to put in hot dogs? Huh? Pig lips and assholes. But I say, hey, have at it bitches ’cause I love hot dogs.” – Jesse
