Culinary Catastrophes: Bad Food Ideas Part 2

I too lovingly cuddle with my food before consuming it.

I've definitely seen an uptick in Tik Tok-esque "bad food recipe" videos lately. That's one of them, I've also seen videos where people dissolve and cook potato and corn chips as parts of recipes and I think...I think they're parody. I hope it anyway.

Has anyone posted that one video of the girl rinsing her cooked beef in a colander?
 
Ok, so it's definitely weird to have a little old white lady advertise this, along with white-ified recipes and bad/outdated photography. But a lot of this is actually pretty conventional/not that crazy stuff.

The ramen pizza for example, seems like a close relative to ramen burgers I've seen, where you have buns replaced with formed ramen. Broken ramen chunks in a salad is really close to very standard chinese chicken salad recipes. BBQ beef pasta is basically just white-style yakisoba.

Definitely weird af tho.
 
I know that's an April Fool's joke, and adding fruit flavors to gravy is not a wild and crazy concept. But as someone who probably has a mild version of OCD, and gets really upset when my foods touch on my plate, this is actually an incredibly distressing image to me. That color too just seems engineered to provoke disgust. Bravo, Heinz.
 
I wouldn't call hard cider a hard liquor?

I'm totally fine with this. The problem with making drugs that look like candy is historically a "don't indoctrinate the underaged" thing, where big tobacco companies would sell nicotine-products directly to kids. Don't make advertisements for this on tiktok, and don't put it in grocery stores and you'll be fine.

Eeeh, a lot of vape/smoking products get kickbacks for being right at the cash register in corner stores/gas stations, at the eye level of kids (this varies by state but there's usually some version).

But yeah, hard cider is definitely not a hard liquor. Juice boxes are a pain to drink out of though so while I appreciate the joke I doubt I'd ever buy the real product.

Yeah, that's the kind of sales tactic/distribution I was talking about avoiding. Don't do scuzzy shit like this and be responsible about it and it's fine. I'm honestly a lot more worried about hard seltzers. The way that shit is glamorized and glorified in media and advertising aimed at teenagers is beyond problematic, and it's got the weight of the entire alcohol industry behind it at this point versus being a one-off joke by a microbrewery. Shit like White Claw is ubiquitous and crazy popular with underaged drinkers. By contrast, microbrewery ironic juice boxes are like drinking straws to global pollution.
