I must have forgotten. I’ve pulled a few pranks in my day, but I rarely kid about food. My kids on the other hand…they’ve tortured each other. My daughter – who also happens to be the eldest – used to trick my oldest son into eating cat food by “wrapping” it up in whatever gum or candy she could get her hands on. I can specifically remember finding her, mid-force-feed, in the pantry looming over my son with a mushy lump of Dentyne-wrapped “Tender Vittles.” She was unsuccessful, that time, but who knows how many other times she “tricked” him into scarfing down processed pet food.
In kind, my eldest son used to “get” my youngest son by feeding him Cheese Rolls, or more accurately, Kraft Singles wrapped around electric-hot Habanero peppers. I’d find out when my youngest would run blazing through the house screaming at the top of his lungs leaving his older brother cackling in the kitchen. Ahh, memories.
In the spirit of April Fools Day, I thought I’d share an entertaining post from Epicurious on the Greatest Food Pranks. Enjoy. And remember, the day isn’t over until midnight, so watch your back…and your plate
