Prank Food

Yes, once again it's that time of year when I try to come up with a post that is in theme for this blog while still being in keeping with the hoax nature of April Fool's Day. 

In trawling the Internet, I found a number of posts on different, popular recipe sites that give recipes for making "April Fool's" recipes. Most of these are items that either: 1) look like an iconic savory dish but are actually sweet; 2) look like an iconic dessert but are actually savory, or, more rarely; 3) look like an iconic dessert but are actually a different type of sweet altogether. Buzzfeed, unsurprisingly, adds a few prank "recipes" that truly are unpleasant pranks, such as removing the cream filling from Oreo cookies and replacing it with white toothpaste.

Emmy, of the popular YouTube channel emmymadeinjapan, features a lot of foods that are "April Fool's" foods under these definitions, so I couldn't resist embedding one of her YouTube videos showing the making of such a dish; ice cream "drumsticks" that look like fried chicken.

Bon appétit!
