Today while driving from Minneapolis to St. Paul, Minnesota I spotted a White Castle and immediately detoured so that I could relish in the experience made famous by Harold and Kumar as well as the Beastie Boys.
I went inside and immediately spotted the folks at the grill working on those tiny little square burgers that make White Castle famous, and then began to peruse the menu for a half dozen or so cheeseburgers – all the while imagining the delicous taste that was heading my way.
Incidently, did you know that you can purchase a White Castle “crave case” for $50 which includes 100 of those little burgers!
I however tore into those little bad boys with a vengance that would make any carnivore proud! Of course, I soon realized that there was virtually no meat actually in them! I stopped to examine the burger and quickly realized that the cheese was as thick, or thicker, than the beef! In fact, neither was much thicker than a quarter!
Oh, and did I mention the fries tasted like the cheap, generic, frozen ones you can get at the supermarket for about $.99 a bag?
If there was anything that actually made me happy, it was that they carried Coke and I was able to get a Cherry Coke to wash down the food. As you all know, I’m totally addicted to Coke products.
So, suffice it to say that the White Castle experience was… enlightening. But I don’t think I’ll be stopping back by anytime soon.
