(A new kind of riddle)
I ordered 5 Vowelburgers™ with buns and meat only - help me identify each one from the description on the menu!

$$ % custom template - do not reuse \def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\textbf{Meat}}\def\NT{\textbf{Vowelburger}^{\;\!™}\ }\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[yellow]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2020.01.21-custom}\S{6px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\T&\NT\\\hline % ~\text{A}&\text{weak}\\\hline ~\text{E}&\text{cyst}\\\hline ~\text{I}&\text{succeed}\\\hline ~\text{O}&\text{secured}\\\hline ~\text{Y}&\text{letter}\\\hline \end{array}$$


Today's Vowelburger comes with:

A W bun and an N bun...

Just check out our menu:

A - "weak", i.e WAN
E - "cyst", i.e. WEN (a sebaceous cyst)
I - "succeed", i.e. WIN
O - "secured", i.e. WON
Y - "letter", i.e. WYN (an old English runic letter)

So, what's for dessert?! :)

Your "vowelburgers" are:

wan [weak]; wen [cyst]; win [succeed]; won [secured]; wyn [letter, more commonly spelled "wynn"].

    $\begingroup$ This answer was 13 seconds earlier, so I wasn't entirely decided on whom to give the checkmark; in the end, I awarded it based on aesthetic considerations (of the answer's presentation). Great job solving the puzzle, though :) $\endgroup$ – Avi Jan 22 at 0:56
