Wasa-bye-bye to school sushi



School sushi is not available all days, and is in the refrigerated section.

I’ve always been a fan of sushi, but when I heard that the school may be selling it, I was pretty skeptical.

Not only is it expensive ($7), but I also have gotten many mixed reviews. One student even went as far as to say it was slimy (he clearly wasn’t impressed).

I have tried multiple times to buy the sushi, but whenever I looked in the lunch line it was never there. Luckily I know a guy who knows a guy, so I was able to get my hands on the grub.

First seeing the sushi in packaging, I was slightly impressed. My hope for school food was never extreme, but the packaging almost gave me faith in school lunches. It looked like the sushi from Wal-Mart: six individual pieces of sushi in their own little compartment like a box of chocolates.

Opening the sushi, I realized they were California rolls. Along with the sushi came a package of wasabi, soy sauce, and pickled ginger.

Picking up the sushi, the rice was a bit cold. There was one tiny piece of avocado in the sushi, and in some of it there wasn’t any avocado at all. When I bit into it, the seaweed was a little chewy, but the soy sauce balanced the rest of the flavors out.

This was definitely not something I would buy again, but it was a fun experience and it would probably have tasted better if I had let the sushi thaw a little more.

Overall the pricing was terrible (2/10 stars), the appearance was impressive (7.5/10 stars) but the taste itself was unsettling to say the least (4/10).
