I greatly enjoyed the novelty of eating a fast-food breakfast in the comforts of my own home, but much of the beauty of fast food is not having to cook. Making it myself seemed somehow wrong, no matter how right it tasted.
In terms of the Whatafries, I wish I had better news to report, as these are easily the biggest impulse buy in the bunch. On the condiment front, any Whataburger fan will tell you that spicy ketchup is the lifeblood of the chain, and it does not disappoint. The honey butter, on the other hand, tasted like a fish out of water. Without its warm, crispy chicken accompaniment, it floundered.
So next time you're in the grocery aisle, you could do worse than grabbing some of these Whataproducts. But you'd do just as well to hit the drive-thru on your way home.
