VIDEO: Heidi Watney Redeems Herself With Chicken And Waffle Cupcake

Back in early April, we showed you video of Heidi Watney, NESN's sideline reporter, eating chicken and waffles at Progressive Field during a Red Sox-Indians game. It was funny, not because Watney hated the food and appeared to almost gag, but because she had seemingly never heard of chicken and waffles as a combination.

Well recently, she got her chance at redemption. Kind of.

Watney stopped by the MLB Fan Cave to "prove to you that [she] can eat chicken and waffles," with a little help from Robicellis, a Brooklyn-based bakery.

Watney said the cupcake was "very sweet" (it's a cupcake), adding, "It tastes like a cupcake, though, with a little chicken on top of it." Guy Fieri would be proud.

While it's great Heidi was able to redeem herself, let's not lose focus of what's really important here: there are chicken and waffle cupcakes. Cupcakes, with fried chicken on top of them. The game has been changed.
