Craziest Food Creations 2010

Contributed by Men’s Health EAT THIS, NOT THAT!

“Even the most well-established restaurant chains can’t rest on their laurels, serving the same old standbys that we’ve loved since we were kids. They have to keep us interested and attracted with shiny new bells and whistles. And since no one has invented, say, a new kind of potato, they’ve got to go with the next best thing: gimmicky entrees with terrifyingly complicated ingredient lists and rapidly expanding serving sizes. It wasn’t enough that pizza makers started putting cheese inside the crust! KFC saw that and ramped up its own destructive powers, by making a sandwich in which the bread is replaced by slabs of fried chicken. Then a few major league ballparks started serving their burgers on doughnuts instead of buns. What’s next: fried Fluffernutter franks?

Almost. Take a look at what’s being whipped up in the labs of the mad fast-food scientists, and be afraid—be very afraid!”

  1. Can´t believe people eat that (and must be quite a lot of them because I see those “restaurants” at every corner).
    I´m getting ulcers by just looking at the pictures.. oh wait, maybe a pill can fix that. Food and pharmaceutical industry seem to work really well together.

    Way to go Stewy, I hope a lot of people look at these pictures (and the calorie count) and start to wonder,


    • Hello Franziska,

      I’m glad to meet others with the same viewpoint, it’s not a laughing matter. Oversizes portions at restaurants is the norm, and at the moment that is what people expect. If a reasonable sized plate of food was served to them, they would probably feel they were getting cheated. Many are not happy until they stuff themselves full, and they stop just before feeling ill. They want to get their money’s worth and that means quantity not quality.

      Thanks for reading and participating on my blog, it’s really appreciated. Happy healthy eating 😉

  2. You know, I don’t know what is scarier the fact that these stupid creations are there, or the overwhelming fact that we as Americans have become so numb to the outrageous that we see this crap and don’t think twice about it.

    I noticed that you never even mentioned the fried Twinkies! as if that nonsense wasn’t already bad enough. Let’s fry it and make it even worse!

    • You’re right, deep fried twinkie, deep fried mars bar, you name it. You mentioned a very important point when you said, “Americans have become so numb to the outrageous that we see this crap and don’t think twice about it”. I think of an alcoholic who doesn’t think he has a problem, and it takes someone to stage an intervention. This gradual migration to unhealthy foods has left people unaware of how harmful this food is. It’s also not uncommon for many to have the attitude, “I can eat what I want and it’s none of your business”. Many North Americans do not have the ability to honestly evaluate themselves, yet they can’t understand why other healthier nations turn their nose up at their eating habits.

      Thanks for your comment
