Taste Test

Taste Test
Kenny McKenzie
(age 17)

Jack picked up the Hot Dog Supreme and inhaled. His face broke into a grin. He examined its contents: a toasted bun, melted cheddar cheese, a layer of beans, then a seasoned hotdog, topped with mustard, more cheese, ketchup, sauerkraut, and a special sauce. He had never tried one before, but he knew that he wouldn’t be disappointed.

He took a bite. He raised an eyebrow and cocked his head as he chewed, tasting the combination of flavors. His smile grew bigger at the initial taste, then his eyes widened as the seasoning kicked in. His eyes started to water slightly.

Jack set the hotdog down and drank from a glass of milk to reduce the spicy kick a little. He took another bigger bite from the Hot Dog Supreme-- once again savoring the delicious mix. When he was finished, the huge smile on his face said it all. It was everything he had expected.
