Did you fall for these funniest April Fools’ Day jokes? Many favorite food companies brought the humor on April 1. While a few food offerings might have been based in a sliver of truth, the reality is that some ideas had everyone laughing. Which special food product launch made you smile?
After skipping April Fools last year, many food brands went all in on the jokes this year. While no one hopefully mistakenly took a bite of one of these funny food finds, the reality is that everyone could use a good laugh right now.
Food is funny and here are the funniest April Fools’ Day jokes.
Jet Puffed Burnt Marshmallows
Probably one of the first announcements, the pre-burnt marshmallows from Jet Puffed had many people talking. While people will continue to debate which is or is not the perfect doneness of a marshmallow, this product might be a good idea. There are worst marshmallow flavors.
Both part joke and part truth, the Carvel Crunchies aren’t available in stores no matter how much you ask for them. But, there is a special giveaway on April 16. So, this idea is based in truth and sometimes the best food jokes have that little slice of reality.
V by Velveeta
Everyone knows that Velveeta brings that creamy goodness. When the Velveeta brand offered a skincare line, many people were all in. Plus, the videos were quite relaxing. Cheese is a mood booster, so why not make it part of the skincare routine?
Bud Light Seltzer Pizza Flavor
Although hard seltzers continue to be a beverage trend, this new flavor was a little too foodie for some people. Even though pizza beer has been done before, this idea is a little much for the beverage giant. But, the packaging was pretty cool. Maybe there is a pizza and Bud Light Seltzer combo in the future.
Heinz and Ocean Spray Cranberry Cravy
While Thanksgiving food can get mashed up on a plate, this combination of Heinz Gravy and Ocean Spray Cranberry is the sauce that had people wonder is cravy craveable? While this idea probably won’t hit store shelves, it should push people to think of new flavor combinations.
Hidden Valley Ranch Dentyne
Many people love to slather Hidden Valley Ranch on everything. When the food brand suggested a ranch flavored gum, some people felt this idea went a little too far. But, who isn’t to say that mint and ranch could work. Maybe the food scientists need to try this flavor experiment.
Wasa Silent Crisp
If you have enjoyed Wasa crispbread, you know that each bite is about that crisp. For April Fools’ Day, the brand introduced Silent Crisp. No more worrying about enjoying a snack on that call or interrupting a movie. Silent snacking might be the new food trend.
Jack Link’s Jerky Cologne
If opening a bag of Jack Link’s Jerky just makes you go while, the Jack Link’s Beef Jerky Cologne might be your signature scent. While this idea was a joke, remember Jack Links did offer a candle for the holidays a few years ago. Jerky cologne might just happen.
Ithaca Hummus Lemon Beet Spiked Seltzer
Continuing the beverage idea, the Ithaca Hummus Lemon Beet Spiked Seltzer was announced. Many people want to eat healthy, but this idea might be a little too extreme on the ingredient combinations.
Skippy PB Hat
Forget the problem of Skippy Peanut Butter on the roof of your mouth. What about Skippy stuck in your straw? This hat is said to make eating Skippy Peanut Butter more convenient. Remember, there are to-go packages now. It might be easier to eat.
UNO Pizzeria & Grill nixes deep dish pizza
Many foodies get quite upset when a favorite menu item goes away. UNO Pizzeria & Grill told fans that its Chicago deep dish was going away. Luckily, this statement was a joke. What would UNO Pizzeria & Grill be without deep dish pizza?
Yoshinoya Japanese Kitchen Ginger Pizza
In what could be a new Man vs Food Challenge, Yoshinoya Japanese Kitchen offered a ginger pizza. Even the extreme eaters might not be able to handle this pizza topping.
Green Giant x Peeps Cauliflower Bunnies
Whether you love them or hate them, PEEPS is always part of the conversation. Unfortunately, this flavor is a little much. Cauliflower is a great substitute for many things, but not with PEEPS.
What was your favorite funniest April Fools’ Day joke? Would you really buy any of these food offerings?
