I've had the green colored ketchup, and it was really really gross!! It would leave "stains" on your body if you got drops of it on you. I remember having a green spot on my leg. It didn't last long, probably came off that night in the shower, but still if you wipe something off your leg thats food, you shouldn't have a color spot

But some packaged/processed foods are good. I <333 Totino's Pizza rolls:, but I am trying to eat as much organic as possible which right now isn't much

Steve, Don't Eat it!

It's gross, but hilarious!!
That site is too funny. I liked the one where he tries breastmilk with chocolate syrup (claims it tastes just like yoohoo). It's funny because he admits that he should be more disturbed by drinking cow's milk since it's intended for baby cow's but psychologically he just can't get over it.

an aside: DS picked "organic gummi bears" as his special treat at the natural food store once. i find it hard to wrap my brain around the idea of "organic gummi bears".


'fruit' snacks, indeed. what is wrong with FRUIT as a snack!!!

Okay, you had to mean frozen dinner kebabs, right? That has got to be the funniest typo I have ever read in my life - especially on a gross food thread! : That was great! Thank you for that laugh!!!

The absolute grossest food I have ever seen: pork rinds. :Puke A coworker bought a bag of them out of a vending machine once, and the deep fried pig skin still had long pieces of black hair in it! I will never forget that as long as I live.

Grossest. thing. ever.

I forgot one - carbonated fruit. Yep - the cut up fruit, inject it with carbonation, and package it up. I haven't seen it in the store, but I saw it on Unwrapped.

UGH, that is vile and I do not even know what some of that stuff is, nor do I want to and I eat meat.

I am in the UK and we don't have weird blue food and stuff but we make up for it with things like meal in a can. Now, I'm not talking about stuff like Chef Boyardee I mean a full meal. A starch, protein and some sort of vegetable matter all crammed into a tin for your ease and enjoyment. Like this little number for a quick and hearty breakfast, Omelette, chips and beans (and this is a tame one). MMMMMM, just try to resist.

Yeah, the name as written always makes me think of that.

Mmmmm! Yes yes YES! Full English Breakfast in a can! With black pudding! (Actually, I'd kill for a real FEB, with the works...you can't can a fry-up!)

I didn't see it with my own two eyes, but my sister was in an Asian supermarket the other day and saw a packet of 'Vegetarian Fish-Flavoured Beef'.

The mind reels.

New candidate for the prize...

"blue box" Macaroni and Cheese Crackers. Shaped just like the real thing... well, like the little dried crunchy noodles that get stuck to your stove. In three convenient flavors.

Why, oh why?

I didn't read all of the posts in this thread, but the packaged "fresh" food I can't get over is "Grapples." They are apples, likely fuji, but I'm not sure, which are injected with grape flavoring (like grape jelly or soda) and then put in packages of four little bubbles. My colleagues love them and think they are the greatest way to get fruit into their kids. I think fruit tastes great sans injections, however!

Was recently grossed out by a commercial for Bagel-fuls. I thought it looked pretty nasty and always wonder how whole foods have to be manipulated to make them "on-the-go".

As if PB&J is so hard to make...

That's just nasty.

couldn't agree more. My poor hubby is always hearing me rant about these prepackaged foods for kids.

Others that really irritate me are the Gerbers Graduates commericals... dry pourable "yogurt" bites are as nutritious the real stuff? seriously? Oh and those toddler TV dinners they make. It's like feeding your 1 year old a can of spaghetti-o's with a side of canned beans. mmmm

I don't particularly LOVE cooking all the time, but it's really not that hard to slap a sandwhich together. Or godforbid, make your kids some fresh veggies and cook some brown rice.

Of course I thought Lunchables were the most amazing thing when I was a kid. LOL

I bought one of these, because I was nosy.. it was awful! It was so artificial tasting and smelled a little "too-grapey" to be anything but fake. DD never got to try them....

When I was shopping yesterday I found Cream cheese in a can.... I can't find it listed anywhere online, but it was right next to the other spray cheeses. Now I love me some cream cheese, but that just seems wrong..

I found this in my internet travels... ewww.....
