Drive-Thru Cake

I must admit that something I do enjoy as a resident of a first world nation is drive-thru cake.

Local chain Portillo’s offers a couple of cake options – chocolate and lemon – along with things such as strawberry shortcake. Like all of their other foods, they’re available in the drive-thru. They’re not chintzy “cakes” or “pies” or anything of the sort, no. These are the real deal: big cake slices, served on a styrofoam plate covered by a plastic dome.

You can also get a whole cake in the drive-thru. What a country.

I will need a street address so I can Mapquest this.

I love me some good cake.

I like Brew-thrus of the VA/Carolinas (possibly more) and drive-thru daquiri (sp) of New Orleans. Nice combo that alcohol and car.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
