Happy Birthday Bloomin' Onion! -Product Review

My latest review is not so much a product review but an announcement of sorts!
Outback Steakhouse is celebrating its 20th birthday and with that comes the anniversary of the Bloomin' Onion, the first item ever on the Outback menu. (I mean seriously I don't need to review the onion itself because WHO HAS NOT had one of these yummy babies!) I remember the absolute bliss I felt when I first had this colossal onion!

In honor, Outback has created a select number of special menu items available through April.

Some fun Onion Facts!

  • Outback has sold more than 133.5 million Bloomin' Onions.
  • 15 million Bloomin' Onions are sold each year.
  • Before it is "bloomed," each onion is specially grown to be 16 ounces big and 4 inches wide.
  • The Bloomin Onion remains true to its original recipe: 17 different spices to flavor the onion and an additional 37 spices in the dipping sauce.
