An Ode to Hershey's Chocolate Sundae Pie

I was always curious if anyone shared my intense love of Burger King's Hershey's Sundae Pie. The thing is just intense. Whatever problems you face - an HSP (or two) can take care of it. Trust me.

Then I stumbled onto this article in the Washington Post about the first Burger King - a slice of home - for GI's in Iraq:


The headquarters of the 1st Armored Division are across from the Burger King. Capt. David Gercken and Capt. Jason Beck, public affairs officers for the division, had lunch at the free dining facility one day recently, but their minds were clearly on Burger King and its storied Hershey's Pie -- a swirly mix of chocolate and whipped cream.

"It's $2 of heaven. It's the only thing getting us through this deployment," Gercken said in reverent tones.

"The perforated edge of that pouch, when you open it up it sings," Beck said.

"The pie completes the deal, the chocolate-crumb base," Gercken continued.

"It speaks for itself," Beck said.

Nice. Very nice...
