Onion Crunch

Onion CrunchBack in April I got an email from a guy named Nick Loeb letting me know that he’d like to send me a sample of a new burger topping that he created called Onion Crunch. Attached to the email was a scanned page from Star Magazine with a quote from Modern Family star Sofia Vergara saying how she couldn’t eat hot dogs anymore unless they were topped with Onion Crunch.

I thought the comment was a little weird until the magazine also mentioned that Sofia and Nick were dating. If I were dating Sofia Vergara the last thing on my mind would be creating a new food product. In fact, a majority of my time would probably be spent sitting around patting myself on the back for scoring a girlfriend as hot as she is.

After I got the Onion Crunch in the mail I put it in my cabinet and sort of forgot about it until recently when my wife was watching an episode of Extra and host Mario Lopez mentioned how Sofia and Nick had broken up. I guess it’s good that he has this whole Onion Crunch thing to fill his time with now because seriously, how do you even date anyone else after you’ve already been with Sofia Vergara?

Anyway, now that I’ve gone all TMZ on you guys I should probably describe how Onion Crunch actually tastes right? The next day I happened to be grilling some burgers so I decided to sprinkle some Onion Crunch on one of them and I really enjoyed it. It tastes exactly how I’d imagine a bunch of diced up onion rings would taste. It’s made from real onions too, which obviously helps, but Bacon Bits are supposedly made with real bacon and those always taste terrible and WAY too salty to me.

Seriously, how many times have you wanted onion on a hot dog or a burger so you slice up an entire onion just to use a quarter of it while the rest of the onion just sits around until you finally throw it away? Onion Crunch is the perfect solution to that problem. They also don’t even mention this on the bottle in the list of intended uses, but I’m willing to bet that it tastes pretty awesome if you add it to meatloaf as well.

    Quarter of an onion?

    For all those places that can’t carmelize an onion, reduce the whole thing – still will fit on that one hot dog or burger – if you’re an onion fiend like I am!

    Nice blog!

    You should be able to find fried onions at an Asian grocery store, which will be a lot cheaper. They’re usually used as a garnish.

    Funny enough, in Europe (at least Poland/Germany) you can buy fried onion crunch garnish in virtually every supermarket, in 0.5 / 1 kg jars/plastic bags. AFAIR price is like 4 bucks for a bigger pack, I’m not a big fan of caramelized onion (it reminds me of usual bad near-the-highway restaurants for truck drivers), so the price can be year-two outdated I’m surprising that’s a “new food product” in US, really:)

      It’s weird how long it takes stuff to get popular in other countries. Hasn’t Nutella been popular in Europe for a super long time? It really only started getting popular here in the U.S. probably about two years ago and now it’s everywhere.

    While vacationing in Sarasota Fla. we bought some of the onion crunch and really enjoyed them. We are from Canton Oh and wondered if they were sold in Ohio.

    Found this onion crunch at a local grocery store, fell in love with it on several different foods. Never was able to find it again and can no longer imagine cooking without it. Is there a web site that I can order it from? I am empty on it and really want it NOW !!!

      I don’t know if you have a SmartandFinal where you live, but that’s where I bought mine. Yes, I like you cannot imagine being without them. On their website they have a store locator.
