Soft-Serve McNuggets and Hot Doctopus: Together at Last

In the early days of Mark’s Daily Apple we used to have a little fun every now and again by covering ludicrous processed food monstrosities. There was the pizza cone , the deep fried potato on a stick , the deep fried macaroni and cheese ball , the Oreo pizza , and the chocolate chip pancakes and sausage on a stick  to name just a few. To call these things “food” is almost an insult to all the natural, whole, real foods  that nature has given us. “Junk food” is the go-to term for this garbage, but can’t we do better? How about “synthesnacks”? “Fake-o-food”? “Machine-o-meal”? “Foodraceuticals?” Meh. It needs some work. (Coin your own fake food term in the comment boards.)
Well, we were looking through the archives, feeling nostalgic, and this got us wondering what sort of new crackpot culinary creations are making the rounds on the net.
Here are some of the latest worth a good laugh (or a few tears…):
58 Twinkies, 4 bags of chips and nearly 25,000 calories of junk food (synthesnacks?) later the folks at Holy Taco  paid homage to the Super Bowl with the ultimate in over-the-top football snack food mania.
Hot dogs aren’t any fun unless you’ve sliced them up to look like squid meat! Sure, the nutritional info  doesn’t change, but can you face your child’s tears when he throws a fit one day because his actual seafood doesn’t taste like SPAM?
This Thai Double Bacon and Cheese Pizza topped with prawns and scallions, with a stuffed crust, and a side of cheese sauce to boot probably doesn’t top the hamburger and hot dog taco pizza , but it sure comes close.
No, folks. That is not soft-serve ice cream. That is soft-serve chicken. AKA mechanically separated meat. AKA chicken nugget meat.
At least it’s got one thing going for it: a catchy tune. “Make a Better Breakfast Faster, Batter Blaster!”  Well, that and it’s organic ! (Just in case you didn’t read that right, it’s batter not butter.)
Candy Coated WHAT?
