Come on Hot Pockets, the (Juvenile) Jokes Write Themselves.
**Immature and Vulgar Humor Alert Again (is this necessary, I don't imagine my loyal readership is on the prudish side, but one can't be too careful)**
One of the many post-modern food products that I have somewhat of an unhealthy obsession with are sliders. In fact, one of my few claims to fame involves a slider recipe. I find the slider fad endlessly amusing and usually will be suckered into ordering them when I see them on a menu, often with horrible results. I have had some very bad sliders at some very good restaurants. So when I spied these slider-esque "Side Shots" care of the Hot Pockets dynasty, you know what I had to do. Buy them. Eat Them. Make nut-sack jokes (for the last time I made nut sack jokes about some sliders click here).
But seriously, the jokes write themselves with these little guys.
Exhibit #2 Ahem, Ahem.
Come on guys, these little things look like Truck Nuts. I laughed myself silly.
As for the taste, it hardly warrants mentioning. Here is the inside.
These guys were filled with some weird sort of burger puree. It was lumpy, and had a strong pickle/mustard flavor which I found weird. I didn't see pickles listed in couple hundred ingredients included in this chemistry project of a food. But they were definitely worth the cheap laugh. You have to live for the small things.
