Sometimes, not matter how hard you try, your efforts just don’t quite hit the mark.
Kind of like the classic “nailed it” and cake fail memes, where a good idea is poorly executed.
At other times, the best possible implementation of an idea can’t make up for a bad idea.
Here are 13 mostly beautiful food-themed fails from the Awful Taste But Great Execution subreddit that just shouldn’t have been tried to begin with.
1. Curry Phone Case
I like curry as much as anyone…
but I’d give this lumpy gem a heat level of 0 for taste.
2. Cheese Keyboard
Cheese is my favorite food group…
But having your hands smell like cheese is not the best part of eating cheese.
3. Madagascar Cake
Traumatizing children by beheading beloved characters seems like a bad idea.
4. Savory Wedding Cake
Just. Say. No.
I’m really struggling on who thought this was a good idea.
5. Salad Lasagna
What was wrong with a side salad and a real lasagna?
It just seems like so much work for so little payoff.
6. Moldy Fruit Art
What to buy for the grandma who has everything?
I just… I don’t even want to look at this. 🤮
7. Red Cabbage Slippers
For the vegan foodie in your life.
8. Cookout Candles
What could possibly go wrong?
9. Burger Bed
Go to sleep hungry.
Wake up hungry.
Always so hungry.
10. Embroidered Snack Bags
Turning litter into art.
It’s like permanent, decorative litter.
It’s so meta it broke my brain.
11. Sperm Cake
Because who wouldn’t want to eat that much… icing?
12. Tee-Tee Tea
For the brave and bold tea drinker in your life.
I hope they have a sense of humor.
13. Messed-Up Spaghetti
I legit don’t know what this is but I think I threw up in my mouth.
Please, tell me it’s a joke.
Those are all certainly… interesting! What’s your favorite “nice try” terrible idea? Show us in the comments.
