Children have incredibly creative minds and use this creativity in numerous ways. At my elementary school, the innocents used their childlike wonder to create the grossest monstrosity of food ever concocted. This activity was usually limited to kids who bought lunch at the cafeteria. It’s much more complicated to play with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and carrot sticks than it is to mix school milk with a fruit cocktail. Chicken strip day was always the grossest. People would pour strawberry and chocolate milk into mashed potatoes, mix in some peas for good measure, and stick their chicken strips into this abomination. Oh, the humanity!
Gross food still exists, but I interact with it in far less visceral ways. Through the power of the internet and photoshop, I can now look at images of gross and weird food without actually having to smell it! If you want to see some culinary monstrosities without having to seek them out in real life, these hilariously gross food images are perfect for you.
