The worst food gifts to give – or to get

Coffee Bacon Mug

It’s about time for another list, and this time the nod goes to Bon Appétit for their “The 50 Worst Food Gifts in the World.” Some of them are at least attempts to help the cook out, but others you truly have to wonder, “What were they thinking?” Here are some that struck me as falling in that latter category:

  • The bacon-decorated coffee mug – (at the very least, couldn’t they have made the bacon a little crispier?)
  • The Fat Magnet – (I have enough already, thank you, I don’t need more)
  • Orange felt carrot backpack – (for those of us who want to look 3 again)
  • The dog dicer – (no, not my Nellie, but even so – slicing hot dogs is not right up there with challenging)
  • The rice cuber – (I suppose we could all use little blocks of rice to play with at dinner)
  • The dippr cookie dipper spoon – (so you don’t have to manually touch your Oreo when you dip it in milk!)
  • The banana clamp – (what is the problem with actually handling food?)
  • The brass knuckle meat tenderizer – (we’ll stick with a kneading bread to get our aggressions out, thank you)
  • The wine sippy cup – (for those of you who want your toddler to sleep well tonight)
  • The gummy bears sweater – (you’re so tasty I could chew on you forever)

Just remember – caviar and champagne never get old…

    I hadn't thought I would ever see the words "authentic" and "Twinkie" so close together…
