If it's labeled Danbury, I'm going to watch it, that means, I end up wasting a lot of time.

However, every few days I click on something that is worth the price of admission, like this video. It was posted to Youtube on March 14, 2022 by a guy named Claude. Claude reviews food on his Youtube channel "Mostly Healthy Food Reviews." Claude tagged the video with the following description:

"I decided to stop by the Danbury Fair Mall for a few reasons, the main one is that I haven't been to this Mall in a long time! I also haven't had any food from Nathan's in a long time either. I hear that they are now offering a Gourmet Plant Based Hot Dog and while I used to love Hot Dogs as a kid, I want to give this one a shot! Is it any good? Let's take a trip down memory lane and see what it's ab0ut! NOW ONLY on Mostly Healthy Food Reviews!"

Claude has reviewed "healthy meals" from McDonald's, Starbucks and Dunkin' to name a few. This time out, he decided to drive from his home city of Bridgeport, to Nathan's at the Danbury Fair Mall to review a hot dog.

Highlights include:

  • "Happy Monday"
  • When he said "they have no idea who I am."
  • Watching him smell the hot dog.
  • Seeing him look confused by the smell of the hot dog.
  • Chewing food and spitting it out.
  • "Are you for real,.....Nathan's!?"
  • Blaming the mall for the hot dog.
  • Him rating it a "ONE!"
  • Saying he paid six dollars, later saying he paid seven dollars.
  • Calling himself "Boo boo the fool."
  • Saying "Ladies and Gentlemen"

I actually liked it Claude, especially the B-roll footage and the music beds. The production is top notch for a Youtube channel and I dig that. I think there is room for Claude on my radio show The Ethan & Lou Show on I95.

We have political experts, a finance correspondent and a weather man. What we don't have is a food reviewer, and I think it's time. The name Claude has a panache to it that I think will resonate with people, he's passionate about his work and certainly willing to travel. Call me Claude, I may have something for you.

Hat City Group Selects 10 of The Best Breakfast Sandwiches-Delis in Danbury Area

If you consider yourself a breakfast sandwich connoisseur, you know that a bad one will really upset you, so getting the right deli or breakfast spot is what matters most. Most breakfast sandwich extremists know exactly where they are going when they are hungry in the morning and they have their favorite spot. They'll travel out of there way to get there if necessary and it will be worth every extra second.

Maybe you don't have a favorite, or your preference isn't in business anymore, maybe you are new to the Danbury area and if so, you came to the right place. I found a pretty comprehensive list of some of the Danbury areas best places for a breakfast sandwich and It just happened to be on the Danbury, CT Reddit page.

If you are looking to have someone blow smoke up your a--, there are plenty of websites where you can get that. If you want honest, harsh and critical reviews, go to Reddit. If you find a positive review on Reddit, it's because the place they are recommending is very good at what they do.

Someone just like you (u/JansportStrings) was is search of breakfast on Sunday and posted: "Best Breakfast Sandwiches/Delis in the Area?" Below are the delis/eateries they selected.
