Spreadable Onion

I had a brilliant idea when I woke up this morning: Spreadable Onion.

How many times have you been making a sandwich, but you’re tight on time? You’d love to have a couple of slices of onion, but just don’t have the time to get out the onion and cut it yourself. Well, with Spreadable Onion (SpOnion, for short), you could have the taste of freshly cut onion with the convenience of a spread! No more crying tears — just squeeze and spread.

Who’s behind me on this one? Anyone willing to kick in some VC?

Ryan- Maybe you should seriously think of creating this spread.

Ryan,

While you're at it - roast up some garlic and while its warm, mash it up good with a small amount of stock. Then you'll have garlic spread as well as onion spread. If you combine them you have Roasted Garlic and Onion Spread!

It's a killer idea. Make it. Then, call it iOnion. Why "i"? Well, it sells, man!

Ah, so many good ideas!

"SpOnion" sounds too much like "Bunion" to me....not appetizing at all. And painful too!

The ping site looks good but the content sucks.

If I was working with an onion spread, I'd think that the content stinks. Get it? Onions? Stink?

Has anyone ever tried those chips called Funions? They scare me.

Hey, at least it ain't "Super Blue Stuff" he's spreading on his burger...

BTW, I like Funions, even if there's something delightfully manmade about them that just screams out "fake". I think they're like corn starch rings given an onion taste. Still yummy though, addicting too.

My sister used to live on Funions...

"My sister used to live on Funions..."

Used to? Hmmm, she still around or did the MSG get her?

I realized how morbid that sounded after I clicked "SUBMIT." :)

no no no- right Idea, wrong direction. Spoonion. It's a spread, so you could spread it with a spoon, yes? If I had this magical onion spread I'd put in on all my peanut butter and jelly sammiches. That would be cool- Hey seeing as how we're on food- Get a glass of milk, a can of nesquick and a bottle of tang. Put one scoopfull of tang and one scoopfull of nesquick into the glass of milk and stir well. I call it Poo n Tang. It tastes like one of the chocolat oranges they make. Man it rules. My buddy jim and I made it into popcicles one time. Oh My God. That's good stuff.

Roasted Garlic and Onion Jam.

This is great stuff. Spread it on the little melba toasts with a little brie cheese and bake in the oven for 10 min. for great easy hor's d'oevres. I've never done this myself. I wait for someone else to do this at parties. $7.25 for some jelly not including shipping or the other ingredients is too much for me to spend--I pay my 89 cents bag of on sale chips party admission and quickly find my way to these babies and the micro brews. Definitely worth 89 cents.

I’m sad that my idea, in its original form, still hasn’t come to fruition. The roasted garlic and onion jam is close, though.

What is this then?
