Arrr Mateys! Yer Ready for Yer Pirate Pak? - By Guest Correspondents

We're the Gluttony is Good Group (A, J and T) - 3 friends who live for, think about and breath FOOD... and it's so fitting that somerville kitchen decided to let us guest blog today. So to get to know us a little bit more... our typical routine... after we get into the office, boot up our computers and get our coffee, we turn to each other and ask "what's for lunch?" Mind you, this is what we usually do at 9 am and from that moment on we dream about what we want to eat while trying to work. There isn't a moment that goes by where we're not thinking about what we want to eat.

Today "A" suggested going to White Spot since they are bringing back their Pirate Pak Day for adults. Boy, were we excited to hear about the Pirate Paks - and it's all for a good cause too - $2 from every Pirate Pak sold will go to Zajac Ranch for children with serious medical conditions. We haven't had one of those Pirate ships since we were 5!

So the three of us decided to go treat our inner child to a Pak and headed down to White Spot. The restaurant was "packed"...excuse the pun! We sat down, scanned the menu, and to satisfy our appetites, all three of us decided on the Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger. Here's what our lunch looked like.

The burger was juicy and the famous legendary sauce and cheese oozed out with every bite. It was messy... but soooo worth it. The fries were fried to perfection...nice and golden and fresh out of the fryer.

For dessert, we had a choice of Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry premium ice cream. We each chose a flavour and were pleasantly surprised at how smooth and creamy the ice cream was.

The vanilla even had specks of vanilla bean and the strawberry had real chunks of strawberry. The chocolate was just so-so and could have been over the top with the chunks of chocolate. To top it off, the gold coin....ahh... reminiscent of our youth.

Overall, we had a great time there and we look forward to another Pirate Pak day.

Thank you guest correspondents Gluttony is Good Group
