These 19 Creative Food Ads Will Make You Hungry. So Very Hungry.

Culture
Most of us think we're not influenced by advertising, especially food advertising. "I don't need an ad to tell me what and when to eat," you may think. There is, however, something to be said for the ascetics of convincing food advertising. Designers toil for months and sometimes years getting everything just right. They work so hard because they want you to become hungry the instant you see their ad. I dare you to look at these 19 beautiful food ads and not be hungry by the end.1.) McDonald's ad. The sandwich for experts.2.) True, and delicious.3.) I hate it when that happens.4.) What a hunk. ...

Everyone has a bucket list. These lists normally include activities like skydiving, visiting famous cities around the world, and doing things that'll change the world.Let's just say that Cal "Hulk Smash" Stubbs has an interesting item on his bucket list. You see, Stubbs is a competitive eater, and he wants to eat all of the world's biggest, most insane burgers. Before he chows down on these intimidating burgers, he snaps pictures of them to serve as evidence of his conquests. No matter how insurmountable a burger may seem, Stubbs can defeat it. Cal "Hulk Smash" Stubbs takes pride in his competitive eating abilities.

One of the great joys of life has to be exploring other cultures and getting to know their culinary treats. But sometimes, you come across things so gross you just want to crawl up in a ball and weep. Around the world, people drink lizard wine, eat duck embryos, and tons of other weird items. Here are 8 of the strangest and most revolting food items around:1) Balut - This is a developed duck embryo boiled alive and eaten in its egg. Really common in Southeast Asia and often served with beer.2) Live Cobra - In the Vietnamese village of Le Mat near Hanoi, they will rip out a snake's still-beating heart and serve it to you in a bowl.

It's creamy, it's sweet, and there is nothing quite like it. In the U.S. alone, the average person consumes about 48 pints of ice cream each year.

Have you ever wondered what's exactly in your food? In the case of our food, ignorance might really be bliss. You probably aren't ready to know just how many additives are put in the food we consume everyday. Sometimes, so much is added to a particular product that when you break down its ingredients, it's no longer what the label says it is. This is a terrible trend that has to be stopped. 1.) Coffee: If you buy ground coffee beans, there's a change that it may contain diluting materials such as maltodextrins, roasted ground parchment, twigs, glucose, roasted date seeds, rye flour, roasted soybeans, glucose and other stuff that doesn't help the purity of your morning cup of coffee. madame.furie ...

This Is What Thanksgiving Would Look Like If Famous Artists Prepared Your Meal

Entertainment
Personally, I see every piece of food I'm about to chow down on as its own beautiful work of art. This photographer, however, takes that a little more literally in her Thanksgiving series.Titled "Thanksgiving Special" and "Thanksgiving Special: Seconds," Hannah Rothstein recreates the traditional meal with a whole new perspective. "This series turns the Thanksgiving meal on its head," she explains, "giving people reason to reconsider that which they thought they knew." Channeling the themes of famous artists over the years, she transforms all the turkey, stuffing, and sauce into impressive interpretations of Picasso, Pollock, and more. Each plate took between 30 minutes and two hours to arrange, depending on the artist's complexity. I think you'll agree, she totally nailed it again and aga...

I often think that if I didn't have to eat throughout the day, I'd probably be well on my way to becoming a millionaire. Regardless of whether you stay in for a home-cooked meal or go out to eat at the latest chain restaurant, it can be pretty costly.

Ah, baked potatoes. They really do make the world go 'round. Okay, maybe not, but they are pretty great.

Some people add chives, and others go right for the cheddar cheese, but what this guy came up with is about to change the potato game forever.
