2. The Spaghetti Sandwich

April 3, 2008

Spaghetti Sandwich

Likely a tribue to Atkins, the spaghetti sandwich is a lunchroom favourite with students. And while occasionally a piece of protein lurks in the runnels like a diamond in the rough, usually this is not the case. More often, one gets a mouthful of dough followed by the limp aftertaste of yet more dough, this time in a pasta form.

It is important to note that pasta in Japan is never al dente. The appreciation of texture so well imbued in North American kids through such snacks as Ants on a Log will need rethinking: the transition from an occasional coarse sublimity to an endless uniform paste is never easy, but it must occur.

A corollory of bloated pasta is anemic bread; crust does not exist, nor does the concept of grain. What one gets, instead, is a cushion of white, etiolated and otherwise tasteless, if it weren’t for the Spaghetti.

This may already sound like a post about marshmallows, but rest assured that is to come.



  1. Out of morbid curiosity, I must inquire as to the extistence of a ‘best before’ date. Assuming of course that it could be any worse.

  2. This is a celebration of ultra refined wheat products. My foods and nutrition professor would keel over and die if presented with this as a culinary option.

  3. That’s an instant flashback to an old Reading Rainbow episode. 🙂

  4. I like spaghetti sandwiches! If they’re made with top-quality ingredients, that is. This one in a bag does indeed look a little gross. But if you have some leftover spaghetti and garlic toast… come on… you can’t tell me that’s not appealing…

  5. I like spaghetti sandwiches too! Although, I have to say that I prefer yakisoba sandwiches. Yum!
