In the south we had no White Castle, we had Krystal burgers, which were White Castle’s menu in a cleaner decor. I was in college before I saw my first White Castle 12 pack burger bag, or caught a whiff of seven-day old fry oil through the drive-thru window.

Does White castle have tiny donuts and finger-sized pies? Krystal did.

And if I had to choose between a universe without White Castle and Krystal and a universe without Tr… Do I really need to finish this sentence?
