These Are 2017’s BEST April Fool’s Food Pranks

April Fool’s Day happened over the past weekend, which means the internet was chock-full of pranks and deceptions. Some of them actually ended up being real, like Rick & Morty coming back; though most weren’t, they were still pretty hilarious. Here were some of the funniest pranks we saw relating to food from this year.

SUBWAY

Subway introduced a “new product line” in the UK and Ireland called “SubZero.” They were basically cones of frozen scoops of whatever sub flavor you wanted, from tuna salad to chicken tikka. Gross, but actually kinda funny as well.

KRISPY KREME

Apparently, people in the UK have a huge controversy over how to correctly pronounce the name of the doughnut chain. To clear up the confusion and as a fun April Fool’s Day prank, Krispy Kreme temporarily changed its name in the UK to “Krispy Cream” to ensure that UK residents know how to pronounce Krispy Kreme in the future.

GRUBHUB

The popular food delivery chain teamed up with Seamless to bring “Delivery X” to the people. Parkour runners and stunt professionals would be hired as delivery runners, bringing food to your door while flipping and bounding over everything in sight. A cool idea and a badass video… but think of what would happen to the food.

FRESH DIRECT

These are actually real, unfortunately, but Fresh Direct made an April Fool’s joke out of introducing seedless avocados to make our lives a whole lot easier. Talk about genetically modifying food. At least the internet won’t throw a fit over this since it’s just a prank.

OREOS

Whomst among you savages would purchase this product 😩💦 @Oreo

While this wasn’t a prank by Nabisco, one Instagram user came up with an ingenious package design and product where you can just get the creme filling from Oreos as a product. I mean, I know it’s fake, but I would kinda be down for this.

MCDONALD’S

After introducing two new sizes of Big Macs earlier this year, McDonald’s decided to throw in a new one and brought the Micro Mac to life. I’d need about a thousand of these to be satisfied.

COSTCO

To help mitigate the constant traffic issues you find in a typical Costco, the wholesale chain decided to make everyone’s lives easier and incorporate stoplights into their stores. I actually fell out of my chair laughing upon seeing this one.

BOBA GUYS

Now this is one prank that I would totally get behind if it was brought to life. The popular boba tea spot introduced “Cannaboba,” or cannabis-infused boba, as its April Fool’s Day prank for the year. It’s actually not a totally far-fetched idea, and I would drink it if it was real. (Andrew Chau, make this a real thing, please?)

 

The pranks were definitely creative this year from the food companies and a lot of them were much more realistic than I anticipated. Still, they were all great laughs, and I can’t wait to see how everybody one ups themselves next year.

World’s Biggest Asshole Asks Fast Food Workers to Remake His Burgers to Look Like Ads

fast-food-prank

YouTuber Greg Benson wanted to find out what would happen if he asked fast food workers to redo his burgers to look more like their ads. We know what you’re thinking: that’s a surefire way to get pubes in your whopper. Regardless, Benson wore a hidden camera and asked employees at Burger King, Jack in the Box and McDonald’s to remake his “not very attractive” limp burgers into something “more like the picture”.

The results of the quick fixer-uppers are mildly surprising. Still, for his sake, we hope he didn’t eat the burger sequels. Unless he’s a fan of tacos with a side of loogies. Watch the world’s politest asshole prank your favorite fast food joints:

California Cops Are Pulling Over Drivers for the Most Delicious Reason Ever

cops-ice-cream

No one likes getting pulled over, but recently some California police used their authority to make people’s days a bit sweeter.

In a promotion for Wall’s Ice Cream, a group of police officers pulled over law-abiding drivers for what seemed like no reason at all. Naturally, most of them were totally confused as to what they did wrong, but after a few minutes of interrogation and retreating to their car, the officers came back with an awesome surprise – ice cream! Because people just need to lighten up. It’s becoming a a huge problem.

Serious cops, no more! For that day, at least.

Fake Bouncer Trolls Starbucks Customers, Their Reactions Are Priceless

fake-starbucks-bouncer

According to comedian Jena Kingsley, the most annoying things in the world are 1) bouncers who won’t let you in if you aren’t on the list and 2) when you can’t get your morning coffee. Looking to apply the politics of club entry and testing the patience of coffee-deprived patrons, Kingsely posted outside of a NYC Starbucks and duped hapless people into thinking she was an actual bouncer.

The comedian even offers advice on how to get in faster. It helps if you’re a hot woman, try to make a reservation, and if you’re a dude, PS: “You know how like at a club, if there’s too many men, they like women. So, maybe if you get some women to go in with you…” Also, if the line is too long “there’s a coffee shop right around the corner, you can just wait and then come back.” Priceless.
