The past few months have brought us everything from the ultimate Bloody Marys of Down Under to the infamous Black Tap Milkshake in NYC. New trends are popping up all over the world more quickly than we can discover them. Luckily for you, there are easier (and cheaper) ways to try these crazy foods instead of paying for a plane ticket.
Before you go blowing your entire paycheck on travel expenses to sample these delectable treats, check out these extreme foods and trend-setting drinks Massachusetts has to offer.
The Met Back Bay has changed the game with their specialty Bloody Marys available exclusively at Saturday and Sunday Brunch. It doesn’t matter if you’re more Belvedere or Ketel One, Sriracha or wasabi, or mini cheeseburger, or lobster, these drinks offer all you can imagine (and more) in your morning cocktail. Take about a wake up call.

Maple Bacon Donut
Not meant for the faint of heart (nor the high of blood pressure), Union Square Donuts serves up a delicacy that combines three of New Englander’s greatest loves: maple, bacon, and donuts. The results? Pure genius. Add this sweet and savory treat to your “to-eat list” next time you visit.
