Love Letter to a BLT

Dear Arby's King's Hawaiian Brown Sugar Bacon BLT,

I knew the minute I saw you on the Arby's drive thru menu that I had to meet you. You looked amazing-- a thick stack of bacon and just a bit of lettuce and a few tomatoes. When I opened the box you were in and saw the mayonnaise and the grease dripping out, I thought this would be a nice date, but it was when I took my first bite that I realized we were a match made in heaven.

I had never tasted such tender yet crispy bacon, and you'd dressed it in a heavy dusting of brown sugar that made me wish I'd ordered three of you. For some reason I thought your bun would be a regular hamburger bun since I'd only seen 'BLT' on the menu and not your whole name. But no.Your bun was sweet and soft. No wonder there are 65 carbs in you. As the flavors of your bun and bacon melded in my mouth, I tasted your bit of lettuce. It was cool and wet, like it'd just had a nice ice water bath.

I'll be honest. I considered taking your tomatoes out. I don't like tomatoes. But I'm glad I didn't. I don't think anyone who ate you could any longer say they don't like tomatoes. They were the perfect complement to your brown sugar.

How could I have missed such a pairing all the years of my life? I'd heard of BLTs of course, but YOU! You are the king of BLTs. You could rule the world. Sadly Arby's plans on keeping you only for a limited time. Come live with me; I'll never ever send you away. I'm not afraid of commitment. You'll be my one and only BLT.

I'm not afraid to say it. I love you, King's Hawaiian Brown Sugar Bacon BLT. I think you might be my soulmate.

With all my heart,
