# Get Your Bunza to a Runza

July 16, 2019

We all need snacks on a road trip, but some snacks (like apples) are easier to drag along than others (like piping hot soup). But what about a hot Runza? What is a Runza, anyway? It’s a tasty sandwich that Nebraska has been keeping secret from the rest of us. The bun is a doughy “bread pocket,” like a pita or calzone. The filling of beef, onions and cabbage (and whatever else you want to add) is held neatly inside. That means you can bring your Runza on the world’s wildest car ride without making a mess! You can also eat it while swinging – like on the world’s largest covered porch swing in Hebron, Nebraska. It’s 32 feet long, so you’ll want to bring some friends to help you get it moving.

Wee ones: Could you lie down on the world’s largest swing? Stretch out and measure your length, then compare it to the 32-foot long swing!

Little kids: If there are 5 of you in your car for your road trip, and everyone else has 1 Runza but you snuck in 2, how many Runzas are in the car? Bonus: If the largest porch swing can hold 24 kids or 18 adults, how many more kids than grown-ups can fit on it?

Big kids: If a Runza can hold 3 ingredients – beef, onions and cabbage – how many different ways can you layer them in the pocket? Bonus: What if you also throw in a slice of tomato? Now how many orders are there – and can you see a pattern for guessing at 5 ingredients without writing them all out?

The sky’s the limit: If the largest swing can hold 18 adults or 24 kids, and there are 15 adults on the swing, how many kids can you add?
