It’s funny how cardboard folded to look like a pirate ship can make an ordinary grilled sandwich turn into a crazy adventure of proportions large enough to convince any red-blooded child that a bit of cajoling to go the White Spot restaurant is a good idea.
This place is not vegan. We’re in memory lane right now.
See, they had this ship, right? It had little holes for a drink and an ice cream, and your burger and fries came in the hold. Perhaps most importantly – your straw was the freaking masthead! Shiver me timbers, that’s amazing. When you’re a kid.
They called it a Pirate Pak and I obviously took it home a few times to play with, the same way I kept those little plastic swords that came with the fruit salad when we went out to chinese buffet restaurants with the odd jello desserts and the deep-fried everything. They changed up the design of this thing a few times. I remember running across it a few years ago with a sheet of stickers included so you could add characters and windows on top. !
See the bliss? The feeling of specialhood? I’m completely serious here, those fries were absolutely epicly delicious, because they came in a boat.
So here’s my thought… I know some of you are in B.C., and have a White Spot nearby. I’m not advocating you buy anything there, but if anyone wants to go on a Mischievous Mission™ to obtain just the ship itself and then send it to me, I will fill it with my own, painstakingly authentic vegan version of the classic Pirate Pak meal.
New Vegan Menu:
~ Burger with secret O Sauce and cheese
~ Deep-fried french fries
~ a soft drink (organic root beer!)
~ soft serve vanilla ice cream
and I almost forgot –
~ a chocolate gold dubloon !
(I will also obviously send back your way a special east coast/montreal specialty, if you can think of something specific, or I’ll just send something cool ;)
