Domino's Pizza




The box directs you to the company's facebook page. It also includes a slogan crowd-sourced from a fan.

Strangely, I wanted a peperoni pizza but found ordering a three topping pizza with peperoni, nothing, and nothing to be about 20% cheaper. And they let you order like that!

The pizza itself is very exotic. The crust is more like a soft garlic breadstick. Everything else seems distinctively bland, if that makes sense. I kept thinking, "I've never tasted cheese/sauce/peperoni like this!".

I didn't try any of the included red pepper flakes or Parmesan cheese, but I suppose that would add some flavor for regular eaters.

The Domino's experience is dumbed down and bureaucratized, with a veneer of personalization. But it's also fascinating if you've never experienced it before. And there's no way you could cook something like this at home.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell meal

I don't know why this place has such a bad reputation. The food is a little bland, and the idea seems to be to just eat sauce (it easily overpowers everything else), but there are plenty of fresh vegetables in each bite. It was refreshing, if a bit messy.

Are you a Krystal lover?

A Krystal burger

The burgers are mainly bun. Most of the flavor comes from a combination of mustard, onion, and dill pickle. The cheese and meat are just for decoration, although you get four separate burgers per order. Most of the bun is fluffy, but there is a thin "wet" zone around the meat section. Only the meat and onions are heated, everything else is at room temperature, so the burger cools rapidly.
