The Top 10 Top 10 Food Lists


You know we love our Top 10 lists here at Endless Simmer. So today we’re spreading the love around the web and shouting out the funniest food stories we’ve ever seen presented in list format: the very meta Top 10 Top 10 Food Lists:

10. Top 10 Songs With Sexually Suggestive Food Metaphors: From Tom Waits’ strawberry sundae surprise to MC Lyte’s hot peas and butter, the Frisky brings us the dirrrrtiest food songs of all time. Wait, I seriously thought that “peaches” song was just about peaches.

9. Top 10 Creepiest Fast Food Mascots: Remember that nasty Quizno’s rat/hamster thing? Seriously, what marketing exec OK’d that? And did you know Ronald McDonald used to be even weirder than he is now? Fanpop’s list will keep you up at night.

8. Top 10 Food and Drink Hacks: Lifehacker gets all Macgyver on your kitchen cabinet, with tips on how to build a fire from chocolate and Coke, freeze perfectly clear ice cubes, and open a beer bottle with one sheet of paper (seriously!)

7. Top 10 Sightings of Religious Figures in Food: That Virgin Mary is one hungry broad! Girl be showing up everywhere from grilled cheese to Cadbury’s. This list has her and her boy tracked.

6. Top 10 Uniquely ’80s Foods: Oh, hit me up with some Capri-Sun and California Raisins! Serious Eats has this nosh-talgic list, although I don’t know how they forgot Ecto Cooler.

    Brilliant list! Thanks for the nosh-talgia! Anthony is quite brutal but perhaps right on with some of his gripes. We just watched 91/2 Weeks last weekend, I had forgotten how steamy that scene was! Great work, I enjoyed this!

  • bunnygotblog June 2, 2009  

    Great list- #3 is hysterical!

  • Nick June 2, 2009  

    This is hilarious and the best thing I’ve read all week. Awesome list of lists!

    #1 is pretty darn accurate. You can ask my girlfriend…

  • averagebetty June 2, 2009  

    I thought that seeing The Virgin Mary on grilled cheese was spectacular until I saw David Hasselhoff on a jalapeno popper! Great lists!

    I was so annoyed (and frightened) by the quiznos ad. And I couldn’t understand what the creepy thing was singing until one day I realized it said “we’ve got a pepper bar.” Sweet a pepper bar – exactly what I always wanted at a sandwich joint. NOT!

  • The Hungry Mouse June 2, 2009  

    LOVE it! 😀

    Hah. Nice list. Way to go meta, ES. I love the “Top 10 Things to Expect from a Food Blogger.” Also like the word coinage of “nosh-talgic.”

  • Vince June 2, 2009  

    This is a really great top ten list, Ronald totally appears in these lists more than anyone else and that’s kind of creepy. Anyone can post their own list to our site The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list. And look we are Top 10 Top 10!

    Hey, this is an awesome list, but to quote Spinaltap for needing a list to go to 11, how about:

    ” You’re the cutest this that i ever did see,really love your Peaches wanna shake your tree”
    – Steve Miller Band
    Does this qualify?

  • Norwegian Fjord Cruises June 3, 2009  

    Great list of lists! I especially like the ’80s list (Orange Julius is great). However, I must admit I don’t remember Ecto Coolers.
    OH! You’re my new favorite blogger fyi

  • BS June 3, 2009  

    @NFC: Ecto Cooler was the Ghostbusters flavor of Hi-C juiceboxes. A lunch box staple.

  • June 3, 2009  

    I hope they enjoy getting sued by Worldwide Pants

  • John S June 4, 2009  

    What an awesome list! Truly, this is reporting at its finest. You should have gotten a job writing for the New Yorker or something.

    36 seconds I wont get back. Thanks Fark.
