I could'nt figure out what Krystal's was either.The only Krystal's being cooked in this neck of the woods are the kind idiots blow up their house or barns with.
But White Castle...MMMMMMMM!Used to eat them by the bagful in NYC.
I always loved the tiny Chuck Wagon cowboys leading the dog to his food ad!
And the little Tidy Bowl man.
Anyone remember Frankenstien busting into the store for Shasta pop?

I always wanted the dog to catch the chuckwagon, and terrorize and eat the tiny riders and the horses, like a dog version of kaiju.

Used to wonder why Charlie the Tuna wanted to be in Starkist Tuna so bad. Was he suicidal? Sorry Charlie, we'll let you live another day..............

Or Mother Nature going on a rampage for her confusion between oleo and butter?Do you and your spouse use your hands to communicate when discussing the joys of Country Crock?

I live in North Carolina and to my knowledge there are no Krystals in the state.

There are a couple in Asheville, but that's clear on the other side of the state from you, isn't it?

The closest one to me is about 1500 miles away. Needless to say, I have never sampled them.


Sadly too far away from me.  I'm right on the coast here in NC.




Rich,

You and Dean are missing out.  Krystal burgers are just about the same as White Castle.  The burgers are really strange when you first eat one.  It's just a small bun with a thin square slice of "not quite brown" meat.  But it's covered in delicious onions and mustard and such.  They are quite good.

If I'm not mistaken, you can buy a sack of like 12 burgers for around (or less than) $10.00.

Rich, I've never had White Castle burgers, but I'm told Krystals are very similar. Once upon a time, I read an article about the White Castle/Krystal rivalry. White Castle was mostly in the northern states, Krystal being a southern staple. Supposedly the only place they both had stores in was Nashville, TN. Wikipedia say they also overlap in Kentucky.

They sell frozen White Castle "sliders" in the grocery stores here, but I haven't tried them. Figured I'd wait for the real thing.

Thanks for the info Yaddo. Didn't know it was a White Castle type place or their was a rivalry. People here don't really like White Castle its consider one of lower fast food places or a "gulity pleasure". It was to mine until I got a stomach virus off of it.

No problem rich. The cheapness is part of the appeal of Krystal's. Kids seem to like them because they are the right size for little hands to handle on their own. We used to brag how few bites we could eat one in when I was little, later it was how many you could eat in one sitting.

Also the stores or the drive-thrus at most are open around the clock, so they're popular with third shifters, college students, drinkers heading home after the clubs and bars close, and folks with the munchies. Locally until Mickey D's started having some drive-thrus open 24 hours, Krystal's was often your only late night eating option except for the sit down greasy spoon diners like Waffle House, various local places, and the trucker places on the highway on the outskirts of town.

I used to wonder if the Parkay tub screamed in pain when people took scoops out of him. Or felt rejected when he was empty and then thrown out.  Since we used them like poor folks Tupperware, maybe they didn't feel so bad.

And those Country Crock people were annoying.

Well, this is the first I've ever heard of Krystal's. I've been seeing ads for White Castle (on cable) since the early eighties, but I've never actually seen one. Bluesad

They still have a Tasty Freeze in Monterey, & I once passed by a Roy Roger's on a trip to Baltimore. Lookingup

Back when I lived in Houston, I used to frequent Jack In The Box, but they don't have any her in Central VA. Bluesad They used to have some here back in the '70s, but they got closed down after they got caught making burgers with what was first thought to be horse meat, but later turned out to be kangaroo meat. Buggedout

As for misleading TV ads, the two that stick out in my mind would be those ones for a soft drink, where someone would fill up their glasses, but the ice cubes would keep all the soda on one side of the glass, then they would fill up the other side, and this ad for LifeSavers, in which this monster that runs around licking things, & sticks his tongue through the hole of a Lifesaver. I tried very hard for many years trying to fill up one side of a glass, & stick my tongue through the hole of a lifesaver, to no avail. TongueOut

And don't get me started on Marathon Bars & Bit o' Honey.

 I've never had any of this stuff happen to me in real life, however once when I was replacing the flapper valve on the toilet tank I found a little guy in a motorboat in the tank.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever actually seen or heard of anyone suffering a Big Mac attack.
I dunno, maybe they found a cure for it. I've been told cowbell has certain therapeutic properties.

Now, that campaign to allow Silly Rabbit his God given right to indulge in the occasional bowl of Trix... That was just an insult to democracy as we know it.

The Michelin Man was driving in the lane next to me while I was speeding down the highway in my car yesterday.
I cut him off and then he passed me honking his horn the entire time.

He gave me the finger... Buggedout

I didn't sleep very well last night and when I was walking down the hall to get a drink, I swear I saw Abraham Lincoln and a talking beaver playing chess in the kitchen.

Then again, they could have just been part of the crowd of thousands of people - including fleet of helicopters and satellites - that follow me around everywhere I go. They're just my mobile phone network.

However, one thing I know for sure is that Will Farrell is not part of that crowd, yet there he was standing in my living room when I walked in today. Turns out my Netflix movie had arrived and was waiting for me at home.
