The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let F&W do it for you. Here, four of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Flavor-Enhancing Fork: Dieters, don’t you wish that carrot stick you’re noshing on tasted more like chocolate? The secret to satisfaction could be found in a new fork. The Aromafork is a lot like other forks—it’s metal, it has three tines, it picks up food—and it also has a slot for a capsule of liquid aroma, which releases a flavor-enhancing scent as you eat. Included are 21 different scents including basil, vanilla, chocolate and mint. The package costs $60.
Edible Dolls: Mr. Li, an artist in China, has been making realistic-looking models/dolls/sculptures of people and pop culture characters for over thirty years. All of his works are edible. Made from a simple dough of flour and water, the dolls can be made-to-order (so you can get one of yourself) and cost $45.
