If you're a regular Bored Panda reader, you probably know we have a soft spot for kitchen fails. There's just something really reassuring about homemade bread baking for 11 hours and a depressing instant noodle sandwich. They give you hope. They make you believe that no matter how bad your meals sometimes are, you could still get a Michel star for them if you would compare them to some of the worst atrocities that have ever landed on a plate. Continue scrolling and check out what I mean for yourself!

Britain Invaded Half The World For Spices And Decided They Didn’t Like Any Of Them

If you are wondering where the heck did we get all of these images, the answer is shittyfoodporn. This subreddit was created all the way back in 2012 and over the years it has become the archive of unappealing food pics. With over 1.7 million members, it's impossible to imagine it dying out, too.

The pandemic, however, might reduce the number of submissions the subreddit receives. They say practice makes perfect and coronavirus is really making Americans cook. In one recent survey, 54 percent of respondents said they cook more than before the pandemic, while 75 percent said they have become more confident in the kitchen and 51 percent said they will continue to cook more after the crisis ends.

Ant that's a good thing. On average, those who frequently cook at home eat less fat and sugar than other people; many restaurants and food companies use so much of these ingredients in their recipes, home cooks just can't keep up.

I guess the big question is whether or not we will return to our previous ways once everything goes back to normal. Let's just hope that our palates will have experienced a reset and our hands would have acquired enough skill to retain our new eating and cooking habits. At least a little bit.

That'd be depressing for $5, at $15 it's a crime.

LMAO. "Eat a box of d***s!" is a bit rude to say to vegans, though.

Just needs some sauce, some onions and peppers maybe, a little bit of extra flavor, etc. Doesn't look that bad, IMO. It's still totally edible as is, though

I mean, if you're a coeliac and you don't like the gluten free bread that's available to you, this is pretty much your other option.

My nephew eats ramen like that (minus the bread) as a snack sometimes. He says that some Japanese snacks are similar to those noodles.
