Late Nite Adobo

Typing out thoughts on a website… when the cravings hit you in the late nite…

Not since seeing an old couple eating pizza with a knife and a fork has an iconic symbol of my childhood been shattered. That was until last week, when I saw a shinning beacon in the lunch meat section of Giant. His name: Oscar Mayer Angus Beef Bologna.

Oh bologna & cheese sandwich, my how you’ve matured over the years. Where has the time gone?

Taste test! Compared to regular bologna, the texture of the Angus bologna is a little dry, since it’s leaner than regular bologna. And while this gives the illusion of a healthier lunchtime utopia, I found myself missing the fatty bologna that once danced merrily with a duo of Twinkies, completely oblivious of the unwholesome reputations they bear.

At the end of the day, the Angus meat just wasn’t as flavorful to me. It still has that “What kind of mythical animal is this meat from?” bologna flavor but it’s not as salty or pronounced. Grey Poupon fans need not despair! The thin slices of meat create a deli-esque appeal that somewhat graduates the bologna & cheese sandwich from lunchbox to potato sack (or whatever the heck adults carry their food in these days).

At $2.69 for 9 ounces, I wouldn’t recommend this light bologna-in-disguise over a plain old-fashioned pack of sandwich meat, not even if it had a hyphenated second name carved from the deepest ties to English royalty.
