What’s your favorite kind of pizza?

So there was this one time I was having pizza for lunch; the pizza was plain cheese. After about half way into my meal, I was overcame by a sudden epiphany, I don’t really like plain cheese pizza very much. On another time, I had pizza once again but only this time it wasn’t plain old cheese; it was the ever so popular pepperoni. About half way into my pizza I deduced that I enjoyed pepperoni much more compared to plain old cheese. Why my non existent audience may be asking? Well it’s likely because pepperoni had a bit of variety.

Okay, one topping doesn’t really count as variety I’ll admit, but the pepperoni was just enough to give the pizza a little punch which I and my taste buds enjoyed. Now I’ll come clean, over my whole, entire life, the types of pizza I have eaten are severely limited. I have only eaten pizzas of the likes of plain cheese, pepperoni, anchovies, Hawaiian, and supreme which is pretty much everything on one pizza. I was never one for anything that is fish related so I pretty much avoided anchovies after the first bite. When I was younger I had Hawaiian and I thought it was kind of weird to have fruits on a pizza, but over time I got used to and enjoyed the pizza.

Now like Hawaiian, I had supreme pizza when I was quite young and it stuck with me through the entirety of my life. It all happened when my dad brought pizza home and in one of the boxes was supreme pizza. At first I whined that there was another pizza besides pepperoni but my father goaded me into trying and I did, the taste that met my tongue did not disappoint. That was when I found that supreme was my favorite kind of pizza.

The reason supreme pizza is my favorite because of the plethora of toppings that were able to synchronize into one delicious burst of flavor. It’s like America, one huge mesh pot of mixed cultures. Well thats my favorite what’s yours?

TV/Movie Snacks

Have you ever found yourself alone in your home? No parents or friends interrupting you whilst you do your…business? Yes, I’m referring to MOVIE NIGHTS! Or Television Nights…that too. Of course, with every great movie night comes the case of the munchies and the only cure are snacks. But not just any snacks, MOVIE SNACKS, which are the same thing as regular snacks but still!

Now of course there are a variety of snacks ranging from the likes of popcorn, candy, nachos, etc.

Lets start with the more common of snacks for our beloved movies and shows.

Popcorn: A classic in the realm of the cinema! The snack came into popularity around the early 1900’s as they were pretty inexpensive and plentiful. As the time passes, popcorn vendors has been established in the cinemas as the owners thought they could make more money, which they did. Popcorn also tastes pretty good especially with butter!

Candy: Of course there are always people who would like a bit of sweetness with their movies and/or shows. That’s where candies come in! First M and M’s, the chocolaty, oval-shaped candies that are coated with bright colors that makes you think that you’re eating a fruity candy but once you eat it, you get disappointed that it wasn’t fruity, but you don’t really care because chocolate is good. Now people who prefer something a little fruity, we got some gummy bears that usually gets stuck in your teeth.

Nachos: Ah Nachos, a dish loved by many. A Tex-Mex dish that consisted of tortilla chips and melted cheese, sometimes coupled with beans, chili and jalapeno peppers. Now I haven’t had much experience with this food in the cinema, but they weren’t too bad. Though my fingers would usually get cheesy and sticky, it didn’t stop this simple but delicious dish from winning the hearts of people of all ages. Also the crunches are obnoxiously noisy and if someone is annoying you at the theaters, you could just chew as nosily as possible. Best part is that they cant do anything about it because you can just say “What? I’m just eating.”

Hamburgers are life

I absolutely love Hamburgers. They are my favorite To-Go food when I want something quick and easy to eat.

Nowadays, you can get a hamburger from anywhere. There are a bunch of fast food places everywhere you go. McDonald, Carl’s Jr., Wienerschnitzel, Burger King, Jack in the box, In N Out,  and many more fast food places that I can not think of right now, but almost every fast food place sells hamburgers except, Taco-bell.

Hamburgers all started out in 1900 with two buns and a ground beef patty in between. Now you can get hamburgers in a million different ways. There are hamburgers they come with pulled pork and bacon on top. Who would of thought to put three different proteins in one single hamburger. It doesn’t stop at that, some people put eggs on there burgers and call it a breakfast burger. A hamburger for breakfast!!!!!!! It’s crazy!

My favorite fast food burger has to be the Memphis BBQ burger from Carl’s Jr. with its tangy BBQ sauce and crunchy onion rings that lay aloof the delicious patty. Every week when I passed by Carl’s Jr. I would always order the Memphis Burger. Those three months that it was in stock, since it was a seasonal item, I gained at least five pounds. My body said no to the burger, but my stomach said yes. Sadly, the Burger is gone from the menu and I have to settle for the Western Bacon cheeseburger which is good, but nothing compared to the Memphis Burger.

My favorite fast food place to get hamburgers (some may disagree) is Carl’s Jr. due to its large variety. If I’m not looking for something very hearty, I can get the fish sandwich, which is not the best but it suffices for the time until I can get a real meal in.

Hamburgers have evolved greatly since the simple buns and patty. People all over the world enjoy the simple american snack that I have come to know and love. If you are a vegan or have never tried a hamburger before, then you are missing out on a truly delightful meal. I suggest those who have never tried a burger before drop whatever there doing and go get yourself a hamburger.
