Remember when a burger was literally just a burger? And you could go out for brunch without everything on the menu having some link to avocados? Yeah, we don’t either. Less is more, but apparently not when it comes to food! Here’s a round up of 10 foods that made us have a WTF moment in 2017.
1. The sushi burger, NYC
What ever happened to a good ol’ burger bun?
2. The freak shake, New Zealand
Heart attack in a Mason jar? Maybe. Are we going to have one anyway? Yassss.
3. Rainbow cheese, Hong Kong
Now that’s an end of a rainbow we will go searching for..
4. The century egg, Macau
Ferment an egg in a mix of clay, ash, salt, quicklime, and rice hulls for months and you’ll have yourself a Century Egg! Pretty similar to something you’d find in the back of a fridge in a Student house.
5. Deconstructed spaghetti, Val d’isere
When self-service is given a whole new meaning…

6. Bacon doughnuts, Tampa
Sweet and sour. Ham and cheese. Chocolate and chili. But bacon and doughnuts? Surely not. Smells American.
7. Waffle pops, California
Why fix what ain’t broke? Because adding a stick to a waffle apparently makes a good pic, that’s why.
8. Avocado coffee, Melbourne
We like avocados. We like coffee. So of course it makes sense to pour a cuppa into an avocado. #HipsterFoodTrendLogic
9. Charcol Ice Cream, Toronto
Coconut flavoured, detoxing, jet black icecream that is darker than your soul? Yeah, we can’t argue with this one.
10. Plates No, we don’t want our food served on pieces of slate or chopping boards. So we definitely don’t want our bread in a Lego bread basket.
“Would you like some bread while you wait?”
*five minutes later*
“I’M FORTY-EIGHT YEARS OLD.”
