While April 1st is the official day of pranks, a lot of food-related companies have already gotten in on the fooling game this year. Whether you need your breath to smell like a burger first thing in the morning, or never want to drink a full serving of water ever again, these brands have the bogus products and promotions you’ve been looking for.
The kitschy double K naming finally got a spell check, or at least half of a spell check with the UK outpost of Krispy Kreme tweeting a message from the company’s Chief Doughnut Officer that it would be changing the company’s name to Krispy Cream. Apparently it was just sly enough of a prank that some media outlets took the announcement seriously. Krispy Kreme UK has since tweeted a few more times using the hashtag #KremetoCream, which seems to be more about teaching Brits to properly say “kreem” versus “krem.”

Burger King knows what you want: burgers. All day, every day. That’s why the French branch of the fast food chain hoped to rope fans of all things beef and bun in with a Whopper-flavored toothpaste. Although the ad urges you not to use the toothpaste before 3 p.m., who says you can’t have burger breath all-morning long? Also, hey, why does Europe get to have all the Fool's Day fun?
