Quorn minced meat equivalent. The texture is almost biscuit like which is very offputting, and then the final product doesn't do minced meat justice. However their chicken equivalent southern burgers are very impressive.
The inevitable HAM. There is nothing wrong with ham. I like ham. But at a buffet, its the "if they don't like anything else at least there's ham sandwiches". And usually its that cheap ham rubber watery guff. White bread. Butter. Cheap ham. The cheapest of egg mayo, tuna and cucumber etc STILL beat it.
What's the worst example of NIBBLES TO PUT OUT DURING A FILM NIGHT?
SMALL BAGS OF CRISPS. The noise! SIGH. I can't hear what Scooby Doo is saying damn it! I mean.. The sound of the chainsaw in this adult horror...
However in terms of in general, it's gotta be like a thorntons chocolate box. High price and just gobbled up by people without savouring it at all.
Never used to be this way, but McChicken Sandwich. Back on the oval seeded buns, with the thicker, juicier chicken patty, it was well worth it. Nowadays, it is only marginally bigger than the Mayo Chicken (£1) but almost 3x price. For me, it's:
That's scarily weird. Your crocodile sequence is EXACTLY what I think now. I do love them all though. Just something about fast food chicken burgers.
And worst example of desserts that are fast food is for me, McDonalds brownie. Compared to homemade brownies they're just not good. Not the goo, the heat of them. Nothing. I'd never pick them other a hot apple pie or a doughnut.
worst example of Hot food from a supermarket deli counter?
Haha, great minds think alike! Fast food chicken burgers should be about emphasising the CHICKEN, so thicker, non-reformed burgers (full breast) are ideal, like tendercrisp and zingers.
As for worst hot deli counter? Kneejerk QUICHE, but now I've thought a bit... Those mini pork/stilton Melton Mowbray pies. They taste like stilton SMELLS, and the higher pastry to meat ratio means its like... 40% jelly. Urgh.
That's got the be an elephants foot! (Not really an elephant's foot, that's just their nickname at Birds Bakery...actually I can't remember their proper name....) Basically, it's a large, round chocolate eclair. And it's terrible to eat neatly! You bite into it and boom! Cream comes spurting out the otherside. You catch the cream on the other end and boom! Cream all over your face. It's just...not something you can ever win.
Think you can beat it by cutting it in half? WRONG! The cream goes everywhere and you spend the rest of the time chasing it up with your fingers. Terrible, delicious goodness.
GALAXY CARAMEL. With aerated bars like Aero, sure, they're robbed of bubblag, but hardly RUINED, because reformed they become a perfectly edible, pleasant normal solid bar. But refrigerating a Galaxy Caramel after melting is utterly pointless. The majority of the joy in Galaxy, being so oily and soft, is the melt, and when it melts away to reveal that silky velvet golden core, it is an utter joy. Melted, you get none of it. No melty tongue feel, caramel MERGED INTO IT, and the "two finger" format obliterated. Sadness.
I don't rate anything in f&b very highly; tenner for microwave meatballs?! (and they DO use microwaves, im not just ranty-digging as I often do!!)
I had a steak ciabatta thing from there and it's one of the worst thing I've ever eaten, ANYWHERE. Chewy thin micro-steak (think the consistency of quorn fajita strips), and the whole thing drenched so much in olive oil that the roll literally "squished" when pressed (sound wise), my ex had a Bolognese that inexplicably had defrostage water pouring from it. Both were dire, my dish was spew worthy.
All pubs have the same vague smell; stale, dried-in ale. But the worst isn't the ambient pub smell; heck, I like the smell of beer.
The worst example of a pub smell for me is that same odour... Emanating from the wee old man who seems to drink there all day every day in his bunnet and suit jacket long since ill-fitting, years of spilled ale, sweat and cigarette smoke come as standard, ingrained into the fibres. In contrast, the mixing smells of perfumes, McCoys and Guinness is guiltily appreciated by me.
WORST EXAMPLE OF A FOOD TO ADD SALT TO THAT REEEEAALLY DOESN'T NEED IT ?
KFC chips. They really don't need any salt - makes you appreciate the potatoe filling more (something bk and mcd's chips have a defiency in). And anyway, it's not like your 3 pieces variety meal needs MORE friggin salt!!!!!!!!
WORST condiment to overuse (not including ketchup and salt)?
