Kiwis' horrified by this 'Peanut Slab and meat pie' creation

omg 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 wild and get a meat pie. Just make sure there's no cheese in it, because that's too far.

"Take the lid off the pie - a small incision is plenty - take your peanut slab and shove  it 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 magic."

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 ****ing called innovation and we need more of it," wrote one passionate fan.
