The meme, a unit of cultural information spread by imitation (from the Greek mimema, meaning “imitated”), was first introduced in 1976 by British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Today, memes make up a quintessential part of our online presence as they serve as an expression of people’s opinions and emotions. Quite like collages, new meanings get attributed to them in a funny and relatable manner.

Some memes show what’s really buzzing right now: think of 2020 memes, Squid Game memes, and Mike Pence’s fly on the head memes. Other kinds of memes refer to the things that are timeless and never cease to entertain us. Like parents, dogs and mouth-watering food.

So below we cooked you up a sizzling collection of hilarious food memes to nourish our hungry souls and remind us that whatever happens, we have one thing left to us all. The transcendental joy of eating (and laughing our hearts out, too)!

Psst! For those still hungry for an extra portion of food memes, be sure to check out our previous post right here.

If you think of the memes as this whimsical online lingo to communicate the momentum of our everyday lives, it shouldn’t surprise you that food has a special place in memes. After all, it’s something universally relatable, which makes it a quintessential aspect of our lives.

But food has become exceptionally important in 2020, the year of the worldwide pandemic which turned the things we took for granted upside down. Before it, we never thought twice of leisurely indulgences, like dining with friends, dressing up for a restaurant, eating with a date, grabbing takeaway on a late night out, having family barbeque and so on.

Once an everyday occasion, it became a symbol of a liberating experience, of a “normal” world reminiscent of the days prior to the pandemic.

According to snopes this is not true. It is from a satire website https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/413-chicken-nuggets-eaten/

No wonder that as soon as the restrictions were lifted and people were finally able to return to normal, most of us went straight to the restaurants. The feeling of ordering food at the table was something we all were craving for all this miserable year.

Meanwhile, a recent study has shown that during the time of quarantining and social distancing, Americans have chosen to eat like kids again. No matter gender, age or location, feel-good, nostalgic food has made perhaps the biggest comeback of all time.

It's okay. Your body will tell you "STOP EATING THE MAC AND CHEESE! Here's heartburn and diarrhea and a queasy stomach for days" when it's actually time for you to stop eating the mac and cheese. Until you get there, enjoy it.

The comeback of comfort food came with an uptick in such favorites as pizza (55%), hamburgers (48%), ice cream (46%), French fries (45%), mac and cheese (38%), spaghetti and meatballs (32%) and others. The survey also showed that 41% reach for comfort food to bring happiness. Moreover, 90% of respondents said that their online and social searches for food inspiration have increased during the pandemic.

Hence the recent surge in food-related memes. From baking fails to hilarious DIY restaurant editions, from sharing funny restaurant reviews and their snapback responses to tweeting funny nutrition-related one-liners, people found joy in uniting over food.

There's some really delicious vegan food, and I know, generally, eating vegan is better for the planet. I can't commit myself to full veganism, but I appreciate people who do.

There is the problem: Diet Coke reduces the blood sugar level and triggers the hunger feeling to bring it up again. It tricks the body in thinking it's a lot of sugar and therefor the body releases insulin, but as there are only artificial sweeteners there's no additional sugar to be processed

These shows will show the host yelling "1 minute!" and then proceed to show clips of the cooks which are obviously from several minutes earlier. It's completely trashy.

I get bugged when people assume all of a culture's food is spicy without tasting it. I worked at a concession stand that sells mango lassi in the U.S. I can't tell you how many white Americans made comments about avoiding the drink because they don't like spicy flavors. It's literally a yogurt drink with mango. It's not spicy. Try it.

I'm very pleased with the fact that the diplayed pizza's do indeed have a 18:12 or 3:2 ratio. Yes, I checked, and no I do not have too much time on my hands. I procrastinate my important tasks. There, happy now? pizzas-616...43d6e4.jpg pizzas-616d35543d6e4.jpg
