A tough challenge, but someone has to do it. (04/13/2008)
The Mayor's Breakfast, as it's formally called, consisted of what else? green eggs and ham! But unlike the eggs in the book, which literally have green yolks, these are simply your average yellow-yolked eggs that have been scrambled with green spinach. I just happy to have bragging rights that at least I had a vegetable for breakfast. The eggs were accompanied by a slice of ham (normal color) and, for extra measure, some hash browns.

The breakfast also comes with a stack of Who-Cakes. These are essentially five pancakes of various sizes, stacked from largest on the bottom to the smallest on top. The Who-Cakes are drizzled with boysenberry and blueberry glaze, sprinkled with rainbow chocolate chips, and pinned together with a pink lollipop that looks very similar to the pink clover in which Horton places the famous speck of dust.

Yeah, this single breakfast probably has as many calories as I should have in an entire day. But since I've committed this far, I figured why not just go balls deep and also order the Beezlenut Splash to wash it all down. This liquid concoction is made up of lemon-lime soda mixed with cubes of cherry and berry blue Jell-O. It's fun to try and suck everything up with a straw kind of like a boba drink.

As for my review, I thought the main part of the breakfast was simply delightful. My green eggs, ham and hash browns were cooked to perfection. The who-Cakes, however, are another story.

I'm afraid to say I wasn't a fan of the Who-Cakes. The pancakes themselves were fine, but the blueberry and boysenberry glazes (both tasted identical, by the way) didn't really make for a good topping. It didn't saturate like syrup does. The rainbow chocolate chips, too, were overkill. In all honestly, I kind of wished I had got mine with the regular pancakes instead.
Although I didn't finish my plate of Who-Cakes, I was still glad to have had the opportunity to try my own Whoville breakfast.
