Unfortunately I have a weird pet peeve that irks me WAY more than it should.
I don't even think it's a legitimate pet peeve
I really don't like...
FOOD THAT LOOKS LIKE OTHER FOOD!!
Take this picture for example. This isn't the worst offender. It's pretzels, an M&M and a dollop of cake icing made to look like bacon and green eggs? I guess. It seems like a lot of work to me!
Example 2. This is a cake pop with strawberry cake filling, chocolate chips, and green icing. It's supposed to look like a watermelon! A WATERMELON? Why would I want to eat watermelon on a stick anyway??
The example below isn't too bad at all. If I had to rank my examples, it would probably be first... if I were ranking in order of how likely I am to still talk to you if you try to serve me food that looks like other food. This little concoction has strawberries, cream cheese, and pound cake dipped into some sort of sauce with CHOPSTICKS. Thankfully, it doesn't look too much like sushi. The presenter is obviously trying really hard though. And sushi is definitely a salty food, while this little dessert is certainly sweet. GROSS.
