August 18th was Pirate Pak day at all White Spots. On that special day, adults could order their own Pirate Paks, something normally reserved for children 10 and under. Adults had their choice of a Legendary Burger, Chicken Burger, or Veggie Burger. It came with endless fries, coleslaw, and a scoop of ice cream. You could add yam fries and a blueberry for a little bit more money. $2 from each Pirate Pak sold went to the Zajac Ranch for Children.
I was given a $25 gift certificate to White Spot, so I decided to bring Beipas and three of our buddies to White Spot. Funny thing is, is that I’ve actually never had a Pirate Pak. It’s vaguely familiar, but I can’t remember ever ordering one myself. Two of my friends got to relive their childhoods at least, and they were really excited to have it again. They really wanted the gold coin. We arrived a bit late (sorry guys), and were seated after about 10 minutes. It was pretty busy with lots of people waiting for tables.
The guys got the Chicken Burgers, and the girls got the Legendary Burgers. My chicken burger was really good. All of our food, besides the scoop of ice cream came in a pirate ship, which my friends said looked different than before. They thought it was a lot meaner looking before, then again, now that we’re adults, maybe we aren’t scared of these animal pirates. So our ships came, and we made a 5-boat fleet and took pictures. Each boat had the coleslaw in one container, the burger, placed on top of the fries in the middle, a coin, and a mast that you can stick up.
The chicken burger came with cheddar cheese and bacon. This was a grilled chicken breast, not breaded and fried. It was very moist and juicy and well seasoned. The burger was very messy though and was dripping a lot, but it was really good. Sadly, it dripped all into my yam fries, which I don’t think were worth the extra money, at least these ones weren’t. I’m sure normally they are better, but they weren’t too crispy. The chipotle aioli was actually hidden under the coleslaw! Didn’t even notice it until my friend said, “Hey, aren’t we supposed to get some aioli with the yam fries?” This aioli was really thick and quite flavourful. I’m not sure how the Legendary burgers were, they looked quite plain, but didn’t hear any complaints.
We all got the Blueberry pie, and I forced my friend to get one too. These weren’t what I was expecting, as I’d consider them more of a tart. Then again, they call it a “fresh” pie so maybe they can get away with it. So in a tart shell, they put a bunch of fresh blueberries, and some whip cream. Yup the berries were very fresh, tasty, and not soft and mushy, but I was honestly way too full at this point (I ate a bit of dinner before going to White Spot). Although I didn’t really like it at the time, a lot of my other friends say they like it a lot.
To be more like a kid that day, one of my friends ordered a bubble gum milkshake which had gummy bears on top. That was a mistake, as it was like drinking straight up sugar. I think overall though, we had fun acting like pirates! We saw some late teens/20 year-olds dressed up as pirates too!
