There was once but one Superpower in the world of savory breakfast sandwiches on sweet buns: The McDonald’s McGriddle. But now there’s an arms race, and Dunkin’ Donuts has jumped into the mix with the cleverly named Waffle Breakfast Sandwich.
Mike: Really it looks like they stamped each level out of Play-Doh.
Peter: Except Play-Doh is guaranteed non-toxic.
Eva: Making things waffle-shaped does not make them waffles. In order for them to be waffles, they also need to taste like food.
Ian: The waffles do provide little squares for me to organize all the different reasons I don’t like this sandwich.
Ian: One good thing about having waffles for bread is it’s easy to get a good grip on this sandwich. You know, for when you hurl it at a nemesis.
Robert: Yeah, maybe we shouldn’t be asking so much of a sandwich designed to be easy for those without opposable thumbs.
Peter: These aren’t waffles. They’re tiny rubber manhole covers made of extruded starch.
Ian: And while it’s true you can’t make “waffle” without “awful,” to be really accurate these should be called “wdisgustings.”
[The verdict: Not recommended. Each level had the same consistency as the next, which is disturbing when you consider there was a waffle layer, a cheese layer, and a sausage layer.] [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
