      Not to worry for you see, the ‘single slice of pizza’ you mention is actually a Mega Slice, which is probably at least 3 times bigger than a regular slice.

        I can see the angle and that’s only like 2 times the size of a normal slice and it also looks pretty short compared to the cup and I know american cups are huge but that’s in height not width so comparing it to that that slice looks maybe slightly above average to me nowhere near $4 worth also I just noticed it’s only a medium fizz so it can probably be compared to a large here yeah that pizzas nowhere near as big as you say

            I guess that’s better then but it’s still pretty pricy pizza here is £25 for a large dominos but there’s always some offer for half off so the real price is like £12.50 and that’s ten slices so that’s £3.75 for 3 slices which sort of lines up with that being $4.65 but at the same time our pizzas supposed to be way more expensive than in the US cause your large is apparently $10 and our real price of £12.50 is $15 so I’dve expected it to be like $2.50 then if it’s the size of 3 slices and I don’t know about if it still does in the US but dominos used to do free delivery so considering you’re at the place to buy it and they don’t have to deliver it to you maybe even knock that down to $2 which sort of brings it back to my original gut feeling of what it should cost of $1.50/$2.00 at the upper side but still

              Dominos here hasn’t ever done free delivery AFAIK.

              A $12 pizza delivered is gonna be like $20 after tip and tax

              You can buy the whole pizza in 12 slices for $17 USD, but the slices are smaller, the mega slice in question is legitimately almost a quarter of the pizza, and is priced as an impulse item. I had no problem going by Casey’s on my way into work, buying this plus an extra slice for like 9 dollars and basically eating a half a pizza and getting enough soda for half the day. It isn’t a bad deal actually, and I had QUITE the appetite.

          Most all American cups are small enough at the bottom to fit in near universally sized drink holders in a car. The bigger ones get bigger on top. My guess is that’s about 28 to 32 oz medium. About the size cup to wander around a job site with till ya all hit the Chinese buffet at lunch…😝

            oh always wondered why they had that skinny bottom in the us figured it was just sealed off at the bottom like sticking a superfluous bit to the bottom to make it look bigger without giving you more fizz I know you guys revolve around cars but god damn

            Fast food cups pretty much universally come in 32 oz (8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48), having worked places that sold styrofoam 32 oz cups for decades, I’m extremely confident that’s the size it is. For Europeans to comprehend, it is essentially 1 liter.

        Restaurant supply stores, online, etc. They’re called “BiBs” or “Bags in Boxes”. Usually $80-100 each. Obviously meant for restaurant use, I don’t recommend buying it yourself you couldn’t make that much soda before it goes bad. But one of those bad boys will make ~120 liters of soda.

        SodaStream has begun selling Pepsi syrups for home use. If they weren’t an Israeli company I’d buy them.

        I actually don’t know maybe look in a wholesalers if you have one of those near you that lets you shop without having a business reason you can also buy it in regular shops sometimes but then you’ll only find brands like sodastream not actual coca cola and fanta and that though

      Breakfast pizza is much more like a quiche than traditional pizza. It’s just easier to eat without silverware. I personally wouldn’t want soda with it, but considering how many people get a large soda in the morning and sip on it all day, getting breakfast and your day’s soda in a combo, appeals to my Midwestern frugality.

          When I got my first job as an American teen, I remember being surprised by it as well. Everyone at the pharmacy I worked at did that, and some topped-up their soda by pouring in a can from the vending machine in the early afternoon. Not that I wasn’t used to American soda drinking, but realizing how much of a habit it was for so many of my coworkers, was my first realization that nobody in the workforce was happy, and they were all just self-medicating with sugar and pre-diabetes.

          My dear friend.

          Please allow me to expose to you some horrors I have witnessed first hand, so that you may go into the world fully aware of the dread it holds and hides.

          For there are things that should not be out there.

          Like people that sleep - yes, sleep - with a bottle of Coca Cola by their bedstand and wake up during the night to drink from it. And that see as a proper waking ritual to unscrew the cap of the same bottle - or perhaps a fresh one - take a long swig from it, light a cigarette and smoke it as they put on their bedroom slippers.

            That reminds me of an ex-roommate who, at some point, stopped drinking water altogether and only drank Coke or Ice Tea. At the same time he’d base most of his diet on McDonalds and went to the gym every other day. He would also only drive to the gym although it was like 5 minutes by foot. Apart from that he also brushed his teeth like once a week tops. I wonder what’s become of him.

        There’s a trick to breakfast pizza. I LOVE to make my own. Start the dough the night before. Fry the bacon the night before, save the grease in the pan. In the morning, cook some sausage and scramble the eggs. I like peppers and onions too, maybe tomatoes. I use white sauce, but it’s a choice. I don’t know how I’m not fat, but I LOVE fat women, so if any read this and want a good man, hmu 💙

      The only reason I miss the midwest.

      I wake up some mornings craving a slice of this pizza, but god help you if you go for lunch when they are running some god awful pizza and don’t label it.

      Sure, you thought it looked like sausage, but instead you get bacon cheeseburger on a ketchup mustard sauce with pickles hidden under a pound of cheese, hope you don’t have sensory issues!

        I live in Wales, lil’ country next to England.

        For some extra context — there is a little family run café down the road from me, that will give you a full English Breakfast for very close to that price.

          Wow, that’s wild to me. I looked at this and thought “not a bad deal, though why would I want soda at breakfast”. A “full breakfast” (not sure what goes into the English part), but something like eggs, sausage, bacon, home fries, and pancakes, would be like $12. Coffee another $2.50.

      No, it’s hot, with either a milk gravy, or breakfast cheese sauce (think nacho cheese without the sharpness), bacon or breakfast sausage with a bunch of cheese.

      I’m assuming the chain that the advert is for is a gas station called Casey’s which is known in the midwestern United States for it’s pizza and other hot food items.

    What can’t they comprehend? A cheap, high calorie breakfast is on-par with our reputation.

    What I can’t comprehend is a breakfast pizza. It’s not really any different than a breakfast burrito except that it is messier. Just go for the burrito.

      The soda for breakfast is what bothers me more. Dumping that on your poor empty stomach in the morning is abuse.

      The acid in colas is strong enough that the Highway Patrol often carries 2-liters of it in their cruiser trunks to wash blood off the highway with.
