Welcome to the Thursday food "nooooo." That's "nooooo" as in "no way", "no they didn't", or "no one in their right mind would buy that."
Today’s "nooooo", coming right on the heels of April Fool’s Day is a little different. As I spent my day online yesterday, I came across some sites that tried to look legitmate, but in the end, they were just foolin’ the readers.
Here are some of the jokes that some sites tried to perpetrate on their fellow food enthusiasts.
Alice Waters launches a frozen food line
Vilhelm Lillefläsk's Squeez Bacon® is fully cooked 100% bacon. Due to the patented electro-mechanical process by which Squeez Bacon® is rendered, it requires no preservatives or other additives. Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon! You can put it on sandwiches, pizza, pastas, bacon, soups, pies, eat it hot or cold (warm Squeez Bacon® on toasted rye is to die for), substitute it for bacon in your recipes, or even eat it right out of the tube like we do! If it's edible, it's better with Squeez Bacon®.
Recipezaar goes bacon only

It probably won't be the last time I'll be fooled today, but you really got me. Didn't even read much. Just saw the yummy bacon picture and clicked on it. Now I'm really hungry! Thanks for the good laugh! – Tisherself
TerraCycle quits worm poop business, merges with Miracle Gro
TerraCycle, the company made famous for its gardening products made from "worm poop" and packaged in previously used soda bottles, has decided to take a radical shift in their business model, merging with Scotts Miracle-Gro, and producing a mostly synthetic line of plant food made from a petroleum based formulation, citing the under-utilization of it in automobiles leading to a plentiful "waste" stream of unused source.
These were just a few of food related April Fool’s jokes I saw online yesterday. What did you see that made you scream “nooooo” and then sigh in relief when you found out it wasn’t true?
