Food is a pleasure. Though it’s something to be enjoyed, it’s also to provide sustenance and nutrition for our bodies. Some foods don’t quite make the cut either way. It’s one thing if a food that is bad for you tastes really, really good. It’s quite another story when the food is bad and one bite can land you in the hospital.
Behold: Cookerati’s Top 15 Food Fails
There’s a reason it melts better than cheddar, though we wouldn’t exactly tout that as a selling point. This over-processed, greasy alternative to American cheeses is almost inedible, but it’s cheap and it melts and for some that’s all that counts.
2. Cheese that doesn’t need refrigeration
There’s a reason you find most cheeses in the refrigerated dairy aisle. If it’s not somewhere cold, ask yourself why -but whatever you do, don’t read the label if you have a bad heart.
3. Items with the word “product” or “food” next to them
The picture says it all, doesn’t it? Mmm….yummy.
4. Supermarket Cooking Wine
If you can’t drink it, don’t cook with it.
5. Fast food salads
Never mind that fast food salads are just as fattening as most regular fast food entrees. Most of these salads are suffering from a lack of creativity. Wilted, lettuce, some cherry tomatoes and some hunks of breaded chicken. Voila! Fast food salad
6. Frozen Pizza
No. It doesn’t taste like delivery, even with bread sticks.
7. Special Sauce
If you can’t identify it, or the restaurant won’t identify it, don’t eat it.
8. Canned Pasta
Sodium, sugar and fat in a can. Let’s encourage our kids to eat this for lunch each day.
We should all do our part in eliminating obesity. But first, would you like fries with that?
9. Stuff that has no business being deep fried
Artery clogging goodness.
10. Pork Rinds
Crackling, deep fried bits of swine. What else needs to be said?
11. Airline Food
Makes it so tempting to fly coach, doesn’t it?*
Sometimes there’s no need for words.
13. Fast food ribs
Food that’s best slow cooked doesn’t translate well to “fast.”
14. Salad Dressing
Let’s lose weight by dressing our salad with something really fattening.
15. Boxed Wine
Party in a box.
