There was once but one Superpower in the world of savory breakfast sandwiches on sweet buns: The McDonald's McGriddle. But now there's an arms race, and Dunkin' Donuts has jumped into the mix with the cleverly named Waffle Breakfast Sandwich.

Mike: Really it looks like they stamped each level out of Play-Doh.

Peter: Except Play-Doh is guaranteed non-toxic.

Eva: Making things waffle-shaped does not make them waffles. In order for them to be waffles, they also need to taste like food.

Ian: The waffles do provide little squares for me to organize all the different reasons I don't like this sandwich.

Ian: One good thing about having waffles for bread is it's easy to get a good grip on this sandwich. You know, for when you hurl it at a nemesis.

Robert: Yeah, maybe we shouldn't be asking so much of a sandwich designed to be easy for those without opposable thumbs.

Peter: These aren't waffles. They're tiny rubber manhole covers made of extruded starch.

Ian: And while it's true you can't make "waffle" without "awful," to be really accurate these should be called "wdisgustings."

[The verdict: Not recommended. Each level had the same consistency as the next, which is disturbing when you consider there was a waffle layer, a cheese layer, and a sausage layer.]
