After moving to Central Indiana, a good 2.5 hours from NECIN, I have found that I have endless entertainment and dining possibilities at my fingertips. It is wonderful, and I love living here.
However, there is something missing here. Something that I love, something that I've missed everyday since I left NECIN... It's Pizza King. Any solid, former or current NECIN resident will tell you that Pizza King is far and away the best. pizza. ever. EVER!
So imagine my dismay when I moved to Central Indiana, and called my local Pizza King to order my regular favorite, "The Royal Feast", only to be met with the response, "uhhhh, what's that?"
What do you mean, "What's that?" It's the Royal Feast! Is this not Pizza King? I distinctly remember having to explain to the pizza guy what a Royal Feast was, only to be told by said pizza guy that "That's called a deluxe lady." Fine. Whatever. Give me the Deluxe.
Let me tell you, The Deluxe is NOT the same thing as the Royal Feast. It is a greasy, toppings too big, sad imitiation of the Royal Feast. This was a sad, sad day for the Gessners.
The other issue is that NECIN Pizza Kings have a King or a crown as their logo. Appropriate, wouldn't you say?
The Central Indiana Pizza Kings however have a train as their logo. Whhhaaattt? What the heck does a train have to do with a king? No wonder they don't know what a Royal Feast is.
As you can tell, this has been a major issue in our lives. REAL Pizza King has been sorely missed, and everytime we're in the NECIN area, we always make sure to partake of the REAL thing. None of this greasy, toppings-too-big, train logo, Deluxe business!
