Penny's Passion: Out to Lunch

Out to Lunch

My friend, Tammy, and I decided to bust out of the office for lunch on Friday and head to a St. Louis favorite location - Crown Candy. 

Most days there is a wait during the lunch time to get a seat in the 14-booth dining room.  Friday was no different -- we waited for about 50 minutes in the St. Louis 94 degree weather to be seated.  Crown is known for their BLT sandwiches.  It is rumored that each sandwich is made with 26 slices of bacon, which helped make the decision to share it instead of ordering one each.  We also had to indulge in their famous milkshakes.  Needless to say, we both went way over our calorie count for Friday -- but it was so, so worth it. 

Some of you may have heard of Crown Candy through the Food Network.  Man vs. Food brought Adam Richman to the restaurant in 2009 to try the milkshake challenged.  Adam had to drink five 24-ounce malt milkshakes in 30 minutes, a challenge offered by the restaurant since 1913.  Crown Candy was also featured Adam's Best Sandwich show in 2012.

If you're visiting the St. Louis area, this location is definitely worth adding to your itinerary.
