A Matter of Great Importance
On Saturday, May 28, 2011, I drove to the closest Dunkin' Donuts and purchased a Blueberry Waffle Breakfast Sandwich. Not a moment too soon, it seems, because I noticed the large poster advertising this wonder had a "take-down" date of May 29!
I'm not a big egg person, so I ordered mine without. ("Wait, there's something on this that could be considered healthy? Away with it!") That left me with a bun of two soft, smaller-than-Eggo waffles, a maple-flavored square sausage patty, and a slice of American "cheese food." Now, I don't say that disparagingly; while I certainly recognize that this sandwich does not even pretend to be nutritionally worthwhile, I think it does a great job of being delicious.
In an incredible twist of fate, Lindsy emailed me that very same day to report that she had tried the sandwich! Great minds, yo! She mentioned that she had expected the waffles to be crisper than they were, but that their softness didn't detract much from the sandwich. I agree. Frankly, I ate this guy in about two minutes (my husband was listening to a Linkin Park song on YouTube, and when I finished chewing my last bite, I realized that the same song had been playing when I began my first). Okay, okay, shame on me, but consider this: I probably would not have been able to do that with a bagel breakfast sandwich. Yes, bagels are larger, but they are also chewier. Maybe, just maybe, a crisper "bun" would have extended this sandwich's life by thirty seconds or so. At least long enough for another song to have started.
Anyway, I enjoyed the sandwich, and I'm glad I gave it a go. :)
