Domino's pasta bowls have generated a lot of press. Not much of it positive. First there was the commercial that stirred up trouble because the talking piece of pasta (Pasta Dude) was mimicking spanking somebody doggy-style:
Things haven't gotten any better since the pasta bread-bowls have actually hit the market.
Customers are taking their own pictures of the monstrosities.
the left is the official photo of Domino's mac-n-cheese
bread bowl and on the right is ... well it's supposed to be the same
thing but resembles a toxic spill instead.
Other food Web sites have been
much more vicious, calling the bread bowls "carb-on-carb crime" and saying that the "superfluous" bread "isn't good."
But this cloud does have a silver lining. The above mac-n-cheese bowl has only 1,460 calories,
roughly the same as some Olive Garden meals. But if you're ordering
creamy pasta inside bread, you're probably not that worried about
calories in the first place.
