Hello, my name is Adam and…
…I like to play with my food. Ok, so Ryan let the cat out of the bag on this one, but I’ve gotta defend myself and get my two cents in! Born from necessity, boredom, and a general feeling of hating the monotony of airport waiting, my donut sandwich wasn’t just a some kind of misplaced call for help, but a real culinary achievement!
Leftover, dining-hall jacked Roast Beef, overripe bruised banana slices and whole grain mustard. All served cold between ethereal sliced portions of an Original Glazed Krispy Kreme Donut.
My friends, I can now die a happy man.
Sure, you could revolt in disgust, you could question my sanity, or you could even see the logic behind a growing number of donut “sandwich” variants (honestly, I’m just wondering what it would have tasted like in a panini press with smoked Gouda.) But can you blame a guy stuck in an airport? And I don’t want to hear any of you health freaks complaining about this either. I did this partly to avoid downing a Pecanbon at Cinnabon, and it has got less fat and saturated fat than most fast food “Jr” hamburgers, plus just as much protein and probably more potassium, too. Actually, this might be a new vehicle for getting kids to eat their fruits and vegetables. The possibilities are endless, and with this latest sandwich creation – henceforth dubbed also known as the Concourse C Special– I feel that the doors have been opened for bigger and better creations to come. What’s next, you ask? Time will only tell, but with an open mind and an eight year olds propensity to play with my food, know that no combination is impossible.
So, in honor of this special creation, I pose to you the following: What do you eat while traveling? Do you splurge on cheap, horrible-for-you food at airport eateries, pack your own snacks, or hit up one of these hip microbreweries springing up around airports everywhere? And, once more, what do you DARE me to make and eat next?!?
