Top 5: The decade's stupidest food products
I am not sure why this product bothers me--it just does. I like bacon and I like mayonnaise, however I do not see why they belong together in one sandwich spread. This spread seems like it really only makes sense with one kind of sandwich--The BLT--which already has bacon and mayonnaise. Plus, I heard it doesn't taste so good, more like Bac-os than bac-on.
2. Toilet Candy
4. Dave's Hot Sauce and Garden Spray
5. Heinz EZ Squirt colored ketchup
Introduced in 2000 and discontinued in 2006, this unfortunate Heinz product had several problems--first of all, people do realize that ketchup is made from ripe tomatoes and therefore shouldn't be green, purple or teal. (Oddly, the word 'ketchup' is in such a small font, you practically have to squint to read it.) They also realize that nothing food-related--or non-food-related for that matter--should ever be called EZ Squirt.
As an extra-special stupid food bonus, we have a sixth selection:
6. Dwight Yoakam's Take 'Ems--Macaroni Mouth Poppers
Really Dwight Yoakam? How far have you fallen since your pioneering work as a good 'ol American country music star? Does anyone really need to f' with macaroni and cheese by putting it in a fried batter crust? And to make matters worse there is a whole family of Dwight Yoakam foods which includes Dwight Yoakam's Chicken Lickin's Chicken Fries. It's a little like seeing the once-hunky Erik Estrada from CHIPS endorsing the very budget-sounding Smoke Signals phone company in those NYC subway ads.
