Coincidentally, there’s about the same amount of lethal chemicals in Twinkies as there are in meth — so, the ending is fully plausible. Well done, sir.
At the time of this writing, there are no fewer than 2,332 superhero movies currently in production. So, it only makes sense that some of our superhero friends would have their own cookbook. Behold, The Mighty Marvel Superheroes’ Cookbook.
The cookbook contains a few meals perfect for helping to fuel the body for some web-slinging and shield-throwing — such as Spider-Man’s amazing “Chocolate Web Pancakes” and The Hulk’s “Hulkburgers.” Because if anyone knows how to compose the perfect meal, it’s going to be a human spider and a giant green rage monster. Check out the vintage cookbook here.
The year was 1969, a time of free love and “special sauce” naivete. And then, along came the McDonald’s Big Mac. Seen here in its first official print advertisement, McDonald’s signature sandwich was originally touted as, “A meal disguised as a sandwich,” inadvertently becoming a ground-breaker for future fast food abominations and other extreme food. In a way it also paved the way for food humor sites that cover such drivel. Thanks, Big Mac!!

The Atari 2600 Cake was created by New Jersey-based Pink Cake Box for a fortieth birthday party. The red velvet cake was complete with game console, two joysticks, and Pac-Man and Vanguard cassettes.
And, if you’re too young to know what a joystick is, then I won’t bother explaining how kids were once entertained by video games that required the use of one button. Or, how totally awesome Pitfall was. Awesome cake though.
Unfortunately, and somewhat unsurprisingly, Reddi-Bacon would leak fat from its foil cooking packet, and soil your toaster instead. Toaster bacon was practically dead on arrival, and pulled from test markets before being unleashed on the bell-bottom-wearing public. Dig it.
