I hope to the Almighty Dog that my buddy from college who is from Philadelphia never reads this. I’ve been eating pretty healthily lately [apart from eating a whole box of Donut Sticks on Monday], so today I purchased the Pierre™ Philly Style Cheesesteak Beef Steak Patty Sandwich with Green Peppers, Onions and Cheese from that bastard of a vendy downstairs.
This item cost $2.05, and weighs in at a not so plump 6.2 ounces. Full nutrition information can be found here. But the main things to note are the 41% RDA of fat and the 33% RDS of sodium in this, er, “sandwich.” The actual item looks nothing like the picture or the package. Instead, it resembles nothing so much as a large, steaming maggot. There was little sign indicating any onion or green pepper was present and I think the cheese is actually partially digested infant formula. At least, it looks like what junior is liable to belch up after chugging on a bottle for an hour or two. The meat itself was the lowest quality possible. Think Salisbury steak with suicidal tendencies.
I fear that I am starting to acquire a taste for the Pierre Foods concoctions. Perhaps I shall take a field trip down to Cincinnati one day and visit their fine establishment. My stomach hurts. I’m going to eat my actual lunch now. A brie and tomato sandwich and a golden delicious apple.
