One Kiwi fella has his eye on helping tradies be more efficient at the worksite, and so made a Blue V-infused mince and cheese pie.
Sharing the creation to the New Zealand subreddit, u/AvailingPiano decided to make the ‘Vie’ - as it’s called - to streamline smokos.
“While fighting off a Covid fever I had the brilliant idea to make the classic Kiwi lunch more efficient,” they said.
“By combining a Blue V and a pie into a single entity I have effectively given tradies an extra hand they can now use while eating lunch. After convincing my girlfriend that I had not actually lost my taste to Covid, she agreed to help me turn this Covid dream into reality.”
Describing the taste, the creative baker said it wasn’t too shabby, just “far too sweet”.
If you are interested in how the Vie came to be, ol’ mate shared photos of him making it. Be warned, some of these pictures are grim.
Like the one where he marinates the mince with Blue V, and then adds blue food colouring “to give the meat a Blue V feel. Also as a warning sign.”
Kiwi commenters on the post are impressed, disgusted and curious, like when your mate tells you about a weird sex show they went to in Thailand.
“An abomination and a masterpiece, all at once,” wrote one person. “This will haunt my nightmares.”
“This makes me feel strange emotions that scare me,” said another. “You flew too close to the sun and now we can never go back.”
“Absolutely cursed but someone had to do it,” another added.
“Everyone is joking but this guy has single-handedly cut down the time of construction in nz,” one more wrote. “Truly an innovator.”
With two NZ staple pies officially saying 'lata bo' this month, why not give the Vie its time in the smoko spotlight.
