      Exactly what a company does, be apathetic to any problem that comes up and run away.
      Yet we allow them to run not out of pity or trust, but from sheer arrogance.

      @Patrick Greer I remember as a kid Pizza Huts as proper restaurants. They had salad bars in them even. Nowadays they don’t even compare if you even find them in restaurant form. Most of them now are just take out holes like Dominoes without the delivery service.

    I briefly worked at domino's in the early 90's.. One of my tasks there was dressing up in a 6 ft tall Noid costume and dance around on the side of the road. It really sucked.
    One interesting thing about working there was a poster in the breakroom that gave actual lore for the Noid.. It stated that gremlins have plagued mankind since the dawn of time and as time and technology progressed, various gremlins would specialize in messing with various things, like airplanes, cars, etc. Then one day, a "renegade gremlin" named the Noid, decided to take specialization a step further by causing mayhem for pizza delivery, and was highly successful at it, until he went up against his arch nemesis, Domino's.
    It was a professionally made poster that was provided to the store by Domino's, so I figure it's official Noid canon, but I've never seen a copy of it online, nor have I seen anything anywhere on the internet that states this lore.. It's weird.

    I seem to recall Dominos being the first to use a plastic support in the middle of the pizza in order to stop the Noid from crushing the pizza. Or were they first to use a doughball for that purpose. Whichever, it was to stop the Noid from squashing the pizza.

    I want to know how the Noid can be blamed for why my area will never have a Domino's ever again.
    An employee added something to a particular sauce to a customer's pizza. I don't remember if it was in retaliation or umm... appreciation?, but it was all over the local news (mid MI in the 90s). The location never recovered and eventually shuddered its doors.
    I think even the Noid is gonna avoid that one. 😂

    What's worse is that it just reinforces that it is just human nature to base judgment on personal bias and liking. Just like charismatic criminals are sympathized we don't hold companies accountable as long as there is something likable about them. It's not a distraction as Mat says it's literally chaging the equation by a margine.

    I’ve noticed each place I’ve been to, the Chai Latte’s always taste different. One is sweeter than the other, different temperatures over time, or which has more spice than the other. Mostly because almost every place I’ve been has a Chai Latte but I wanna know which one is the best and tastes the most like what Chai would taste like. Idk, just my idea :) And I’m just curious which place has the best Chai Latte lol

    Honestly my neighborhood hasn't ordered from dominos in ages because there was a time they ran over the same little girl 2 to 3 times. Luckily that girl is alright and she has grown quite a bit. But yeah we haven't ordered from them in ages because of that, also another reason we have more speed bumps and many people putting up signs trying to warn drivers about the possibility of children playing sports or just simply walking on the road. This video made me think about all the changes that everyone went through where I live. This video was very interesting to watch, always love food theory and all the other theory channels 😁

    7:20 ugh, such a bad memory. I actually really liked their cheese bread, even if it's their pizza was otherwise awful, so it really bothered me every time I saw a commercial that said they improved the cheese bread when I tried it and it just wasn't as good to me.

    Domino's worst nightmare right now is how their pizzas taste. I will take almost any other pizza over them these days. Glad I finally got my family to choose our local pizzeria over Domino's. Those are the only 2 pizza places we have in our small town. Our local pizza place has such good pizzas that I will happily pay more and support them over Domino's.

    Before you told me about the Noid, I did indeed wonder how he could be a popular mascot. But imagining him as a villain, yeah, I kinda like him that way. I can see how he would be popular as a whacky villain

    Hey MatPat, here's a Food Theory video idea. How about you investigate the science between why most drinks taste and feel better cold or icy? I've always wondered this.

    • DaFilmQueen
      DaFilmQueen 3 months ago

      True. In my experience, Sprite tastes bitter when mixed with ice, but generally tasty when just cooling off in the refrigerator. A lot of other sodas, like Pepsi and Coca-Cola, are good to try when left cooling in the refrigerator, but Fanta ain't as nice when hot or cold.

    On domino pizza box's, a side entry mentions the Noid, saying he disappeared. That could have been hinting his return as well.

    a theory I'm interested to see you guys tackle: what's the best way to carry a pizza?
    there's a takeout pizza place like a three minute walk from where I live so I often place my order for pickup, then walk there and carry the boxes home myself. How do you make sure they lose as little heat as possible on the way back? Should you hold the boxes close to yourself or away? Hinge side of the box facing you or facing away from you? Horizontal or vertical? Hot air rises, so if you lean over the boxes does your body trap the heat? Do you walk fast to minimise time exposed to the air, or slow to minimise the number of air molecules it hits per second? If you have different sized boxes, what's the best way of stacking them? Garlic bread above pizza, or pizza above garlic bread? The list of questions goes on...

    In my hometown, our Godfather's Pizza delivered back in the mid to late 1970's. And, they delivered until the company went belly up around 1985/86 or so. Although, they did make a small comeback in 1997/98 or so, but never delivered upon returning.
