Armed with a few expendable dollars on a BYU meal card, and a strange curiosity, I've decided to purchase the most disgusting looking food from the vending machines on campus to see if any of it should qualify as edible.
First up: White Castle's microwaveable mini cheeseburgers.
These things taste as bad as they smell - no, worse - once cooked. A comfortable 300 calories (total) doesn't worry me, but the fact that they contain one quarter of your daily intake of Fat (mostly saturated) AND sodium sure does.
My goal is to actually eat this stuff, but I had to pass on the second sandwich. My coworker Ray gladly accepted the donation... until he bit into it.
I can't comprehend how the package actually has the word 'food' on it, especially since it's not preceded by "Warning: This isn't". After reading through the 6 lines of ingredients - just for the buns! - I think it's safe to say that this crap has been processed more than a Swimsuit Edition photoshoot.
CONCLUSION: If students are actually eating this, they won't have to look much further than the cardiac surgeon to decide where to spend their retirement fund.
