A tumultuous start. After over 20 minutes in line, the Crunch I thought was mine was stolen by a man several customers behind me. I was left waiting what seemed like forever for the next one to come along, wondering all along what could have been. Was that my perfect crunch that just walked out the door?
All my fears were put to rest when I unwrapped and found this beautiful burger. Two corners of the patty peeked out from the sides of the bun, like two loving arms welcoming me home after being away for far too long.
I bit down to that old familiar taste, yet somehow, this Crunch managed to keep me guessing. Some bites were soft, full of sauce and plump, juicy chicken, while others crunched with fresh lettuce and hot, perfectly fried breading. There were no dull moments tonight. Even the tomatoes, usually a soft and saggy afterthought, met me with resistance when I bit down, as if demanding me to taste them.
And like the warm embrace of a distant lover, I began to miss, to ache for the taste of this Crunch before it was even gone. When will I see you again, I thought. Even tomorrow would feel like an eternity. Until next time, Crunch.

***GUEST POST: Georgia Wisdom***Feburary 10th 2014. 7:15pm. Time spent in line: 20 minutes. Accoutrements: side of fries, Diet Coke.After a rather long wait in line, I was excited to be presented with this beautiful looking Crunch. The patty was surprisingly uniform, extending just slightly from the bun all the way around. I took this as a good sign, but when it comes to a Crunch, looks can certainly be deceiving. It seemed, I soon learned, that the sauce had been concentrated in the centre of the burger. This meant that the first half of my bites were quite dry, and I questioned at one point whether there would be any sauce at all.In spite of this, I was very happy with all other aspects of the Crunch. Good size tomato, solid lettuce distribution, and a fresh bun.4/5

On this Super Crunch Sunday, I was blessed with a fine specimen.
First off, look at that patty… had I shifted the top of the bun to the center if the sandwich, the chicken would have extended beyond the bun’s border by a solid 2 inches on each side. My experience puts the average chicken:bun hypertrophy at around an inch or less, so I was pleased with the added value. However, like with most supposed consumer victories, this one had a hitch: a hypertrophic patty means sauce distribution issues, i.e. you’re stuck taking at least a couple of bites of a dry piece of chicken.
Lettuce, sauce, tomato, and bun all perfectly fine.
"Phil understands what is important in life, and Phil understands that family, however shattered, is important. There is no backstory for Phil, no opportunity for scenery chewing or explosive anger, things that actors, of course, love. What Hoffman had to bring to the table in "Magnolia", the only thing, was his caring heart. He did so without wanting to be congratulated or praised for it. It is a deeply selfless performance. He was a member of a chaotic ensemble, filled with characters much louder and more flamboyant than his, and he had to sit there, in scene after scene, still, listening, caring, healing. It’s a mini-miracle, that performance, and it is a reminder that the best acting is often not the showiest, the loudest, the quirkiest, the darkest. The word "brave" is usually used to describe actors who make themselves ugly for roles, who disrobe, who portray the seedier sides of humanity. But showing an audience your heart? That’s the bravest act of all."

This Crunch had problems from the get-go. The bun felt oddly hard - particularly on the bottom. I persevered and took a furtive bite. The bottom of the bun was as unpleasant as I might have anticipated: you want the chicken to crunch, not the bread.
The temperature of the sandwich was about right, with a decent sized patty and a reasonable amount of lettuce. The spicy sauce, however, was significantly oversupplied. This led to bites in the middle that were spicy to such a degree that it nearly became unpleasant, which is not at all something I want, need, or expect with a Crunch.
All things considered, a mediocre Crunch. 3/5
