Britain, It Turns Out Breadsticks Aren’t What You Think They Are

So, you may have heard Americans talking about breadsticks. They’re very passionate about them.

I’ve been assuming it was just a weird American proclivity, like biscuits and gravy, or how they’re letting a old leather handbag with an orange wig run for president.

A particular restaurant, Olive Garden, which from what I understand is like an Italian Wetherspoon’s with less tragedy and more forced corporate jollity, offers UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS.

This offer is very popular.

But the question is why? Because these are breadsticks, right?

Hard-baked, very thin bits of bread of some sort. You used to get them in Pizza Express in a little plastic packet.

They’re fine. You can eat one or two while waiting for your pizza but, frankly, they aren’t that great. No British person has ever felt any particular love for them.

So why in the hell are Americans so passionate about these dry, tasteless sticks?

Because, it turns out, they mean something else, and that something else is MAGNIFICENT.
