The polarizing fruitcake has sparked debates over generations. Some love it, while others find it less than appetizing. We’re inclined to agree with the latter. As if the taste wasn’t strange enough, this fruitcake comes frozen. Frozen Fruitcake Salad takes the already divisive fruitcake to even more questionable heights.
But what does this mean for the eating experience? Chances are you might break your teeth while trying to sink them into this odd sweet treat. And don’t even get us started on why they call it a “salad.” Experience tells us not to go down that murky path lest we completely lose our minds.
Also known as Eggs Nests, the Cloud Eggs are surprisingly popular even today – probably because it’s an affordable meal. But remember that adding sides like salad, milk, and fruits can quickly change the price. Still, the joy of Cloud Eggs extends far beyond cost if reports are to be believed. It's about the experience.
Here’s something whimsically delightful about biting into a fluffy cloud-like creation. In terms of visual appeal, this dish, thankfully, doesn't make our eyes hurt. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s on you to make it extraordinary. Why settle for runny eggs when you can have fluffy, baked eggs instead?
We're lucky that evolution has allowed our palates to become more refined over the decades. If not, we'd still be mixing lemon-lime soda with milk! This ad calls it a treat; this looks more like a punishment if you ask us. In a world where kitchen experiments had no limits, we must acknowledge the daring spirit of the baby boomers, going boldly where no chef had gone before.
As fun as all the trial and error might sound, we’re glad the days of wild experimentation are over (at least in the kitchen.) It paved the way for the tastes and preferences of today, and can we just say how relieved and thankful we are?
Orange Delight Pie
The name might sound like a summer’s delight, but this pie is anything but! It takes guts to butcher a beloved American classic, but someone went ahead and did just that. The Orange Delight Pie challenges all our notions of color and flavor. It doesn’t take a genius to know that pies just shouldn’t have a radioactive-orange color.
And to make things worse, this “pie” is made of orange Kool-Aid powder. Who would’ve thought that the iconic powdered drink mix could find its way into a pie and be topped with cream cheese, no less? In a world where you can be anything, don’t mess with the beloved pie.
Jelly Soufflé Salad
Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, enter the Jelly Soufflé Salad. This oddity is a forgotten gem from the '60s that will make you grateful for the evolved tastes of the present. What is it? An unfathomable fusion of fish, gelatin, and citrus.
Yes, apparently, someone thought that was a good idea. It’s one of those trends that belongs to a bygone era and will (no, MUST) forever remain there. You’ve got to hand it to baby boomers and their kitchen experiments. Were they creative geniuses? Audacious? Or just plain loopy? The jury’s out on that one.
