BRISTOL, Connecticut, U.S.A. — What’s the first word that comes to your mind when I say cafeteria food? Gross, right?
Not necessarily. I just dare you to try it.
The chicken nuggets taste like chicken and the calzones are pretty good.
You may be saying, what’s wrong with this girl? I swear — nothing!
The only thing I haven’t tried is the pizza, and from what I hear, that’s pretty good, too.
I know you’ve seen many stories on television about how a student will in line for lunch and the choices for what to eat will be either mystery meat or split pea soup.
Don’t believe it: it’s a lie. The truth is, you can get anything from a taco salad to bacon cheeseburgers.
So next time you’re in the cafeteria and you’re deciding what to eat, just go ahead and buy that tasty cafeteria lunch.
Once you’ve tried it, don’t be surprised if you jump out of your seat and scream, “I love cafeteria food!”
