Tell to your friends to stop living under a rock because most of the self service restaurants here have onion rings.
All of those "steak and burger" restaurants like Outback, B-52 and Joe & Leo's have onion rings. I'd say they are fairly common nowadays, but they are surely not part of the average Brazilian person's menu.
Porra, nunca comeram Cebolitos não?
Well, cebolitos are not actual onion rings, but I guess that someone playing this hack could end up thinking of them.
I think onion rings are hard to portray accurately with MD/Genesis sprites, but the fact that part of their name is also the name of the object they are replacing makes it easier for an English-speaking person to figure out what they are. Since the rings in Sonic games are called either "anéis" or "argolas" in Portuguese, and AFAIK we have no food named with these words (we usually don't translate "onion rings", we just use the English name), the connection is harder to make. But honestly, realizing that it's some kind of round food is enough, it doesn't matter what kind it is.
