A kaiser roll, sliced open, buttered, and then wrapped in plastic/saran wrap waiting for you on the counter if you want one.

Is this familiar to you?

It is both common AND bland and stupid.

that was the impetus for this poll.

twitter was having fun with the idea of the NYT thinking the city invented bread and butter, but that misses the point of the specific product that was being discussed.

It's everywhere here and I cannot remember seeing it anywhere else before. I got it once, when I brought some chicken from home and wanted to make it into a sandwich and forgot about the whole pre-buttered aspect of the roll just sitting there on the counter.

There's a couple of diner/deli places by me here that do this and nobody ever seems to want the damn things. It's just a bunch of rando wrapped and buttered roles cluttering up the counter or the top of the deli case.

That sounds like a particularly loathsome sex act.
