There is so much else I need to be writing right now, but I’m hoping this will help shake things loose a little bit.
Yahoo! has an article which, as the title says, looks at 13 fast food items with cult followings. With a hook like that, how could I resist?
It has some of the usual suspects on there, such as Shamrock Shakes and the McRib (both of which I enjoy, especially the former), and some other unexpected offerings as well. Who knew that McDonald’s pizza (the top 3/4 of the sideways arches are sort of like a “z”, you see) had such a following? I only regret never getting to try it myself. There are other items on there, including newer fare such as the KFC Double Down and Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos taco.
Some of these others sound like interesting items to try, but what I wish there was more of a following for is the Arch Deluxe. I did love that burger so, particularly the sauce, but it seems like it will be one of those items which is destined to remain locked away in the storehouse of our memories alongside Ecto Cooler, the Colonel’s Rotisserie Gold, and Crystal Pepsi. I do wonder if there are other like-minded individuals who would like to see its return, though.
Recently, Burger King revealed the latest promotion in their BK Crown Kids Meals: The Wii U. I covered the line at Mario’s Hat, but now I’m here to examine these toys a little more closely than what the promotional website allows. It’s three of my favorite things together: Toys, fast food, and video games, so how can I resist?
Incidentally, I’ve not been able to find any Burger Kings carrying the toys until tonight, and they only had two. So rather than wait until I have them all (which may not even happen; we’ll see), I’m just reviewing them as they come. Tonight, it’s the Wii U Sticker Dispenser and a Luigi figure.
I am not really what you would call an “onion ring person.” The reason for this is simply because I do not like onions. No matter where I go, I will generally not eat onions or onion rings. I might eat the batter, but that’s it; throw the rest away, as far as I’m concerned.
I think it may be a texture thing, or it might be something else, but onions (and usually peppers, for that matter) tend to make me gag or worse. And it’s really too bad, because I sometimes like the smell of those things, like on a supreme pizza, but to actually put it in my mouth? Nuh-uh; it would never make it.
There is, however, one exception to the onion rule (besides onion-flavored seasoning, such as that found on potato chips): Burger King’s onion rings.
Okay, first things first: My apologies for this update coming so late. I know I said on Twitter that I would have something new up a lot sooner, and I had every intention of it, but working on other things has sapped my writing energy when it came time to turn my attention here. I might try to make PMO more of a weekend thing to the more weekday-oriented everything else I do, but I don’t want to make the mistake of locking myself into something here.
Suffice to say, I’ll try to keep things more frequent than… sheesh, 11 days ago? Again, my apologies.
That said, I’m trying something new here: Food reviews! But don’t think I’m turning PMO into some sort of food-oriented website– for one thing, I imagine the name “Poison Mushroom” already doesn’t lend itself well to sounding appetizing, but I just wanted to try this out to expand my horizons, and… well, who doesn’t like food anyway?
