Top 5 weird royal wedding foods (plus 1 bonus oddity!)
For those of you living under a rock, you may be surprised to learn that, this weekend, England's Prince William will marry and the world will have a new princess.
For most people who do not spend the majority of their free time watching reruns of Say Yes to the Dress, weddings of people we don't know that well are good for one thing and one thing only: food!
And so the Hot Dish presents some of the more, um, interesting stories about dishes, drinks, and desserts that wedding-crazy Anglophiles from around the globe have whipped up in honor of Will and Kate.
We've already told you about Papa John's royal wedding-themed
trainwreck pizza, but they are not the only fast-food giants wading into the madness.
Dunkin' Donuts- Heart-Shaped Donut
Dunkin' Donuts has designed this cute little jelly-filled heart as its contribution to the festivities. As you can see, the filling is blood red, which almost pushes this one into "creepy" territory.
Castle Rock Brewery's Kiss Me Kate Beer
Not to be outdone, rival British brewer Castle Rock Brewery has released its pale ale crafted to commemorate the occasion, Kiss Me Kate. The cartoon couple on the bottle are irrefutable proof that this is an elegant and tasteful keepsake that one could pass down to one's grandchildren as a family heirloom.
"Kate Middleton" Jellybean
This is most assuredly the strangest of all the royal wedding food-related stories on the web. A young man in England bought a large tin of jellybeans to share with his girlfriend. When the young lady opened the tin, there on top was this magical simulacrum of the future Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton. The couple did the only thing that any sane reasonable person could do: They put the charmed candy up for bid on Ebay.
