Hot Pockets will always have a place in my refrigerator because they are the perfect post-drinking food. You know how it is – you go out, have a few drinks with your friends, and you stumble home starving. At that hour and in that state, only something starchy and greasy will do and Hot Pockets are the perfect thing to fill you up and satisfy your drunken cravings.
* They’re cheap! A 2-pack of Hot Pockets costs only about $3.50. You’ll easily spend $20 to order Manny & Olga’s at that hour.
* They’re quick! Hot Pockets are out of the microwave in 3 minutes. That pizza will take 30 minutes to be delivered and, even with a hookup at Ben’s Chili Bowl, you’ll spend 10-15 minutes waiting for your order. Less time waiting for food = more time for sleeping or…other late night activities.
So laugh away, Mr. European Businessman. They may not be high cuisine but some of the best nights of my life have ended with Hot Pockets.
