Winning the food lottery? That's probably the best feeling in the world. Losing it, however, is more painful than your empty stomach could ever imagine.

We're not just talking about a bag of chips that turns out to be mostly air inside, or an iced coffee that's just a cup of ice with a splash of coffee. These are people who suffered the most devastating of dupes; warped fruit, distorted chocolate bars, and possibly the most heinous of them all, lemon-flavored candy. Whoever let these sad excuses for food leave the factory should be in prison.

If you think we're being dramatic, see how unkind the food lottery has been to a selection of poor souls below, and proceed with caution the next time you play.

Cat

I will come to the defense of the poor boiled peanut since no one else will. They’re very common in the South. Usually find them being cooked and sold on the side of the road by someone selling watermelons and tomatoes out the back of their truck. To me they taste like black eye peas – if you’re familiar with those. They must be eaten warm, and should NEVER be purchased in a can. This person deserved the cicada/grasshopper.

I don't know if that's a cricket. I've never seen a red one before. I have, however, seen small crawfish that are red with big black eyes like that though. As for the boiled peanuts, I grew up eating them. It never really occurred to me how weird the idea of boiled peanuts must seem to people outside the South. Maybe it seems as odd as "corn nuts" did to me when I first encountered them in California. Yuck! In Alabama, peanut crops are a hot commodity so I guess some farmers (long ago) found alternate ways of serving them. Thank goodness for people like George Washington Carver! Could you imagine life without delicious peanut butter? If you ever have a chance to try boiled peanuts, give them a chance. They are best served warm ...and fresh, NOT canned. When cooked properly, they have the texture of an olive but are salty/nutty (obviously) and sometimes spicy (if seasoned as such). 😊
