The Worst Food Porn We Saw Last Month

At the end of April, we decided to torture ourselves with the worst food porn we could find from that month. We sifted through blogs, sub-Reddits and Instagram pages and made ourselves gag in the process -- all in the name of important research. With another month behind us, and enough distance to have successfully blocked out the pain from the previous month, we decided to go at it again.

We at The Huffington Post know full well the value of food porn -- it reigns supreme above all other kinds of porn. The glory of good food porn makes bad food especially awful.

We've rounded up the most foul, upsetting, disgusting and confusing food porn from last month. It makes us drop to our knees and kiss the ground in gratitude that May is over. Here are 12 of the worst food porn moments from May, and here's hoping we have a more pleasing June.

"Frozen pizza with instant mashed potato topping"

This may have just done the impossible and made us never want to eat pizza OR mashed potatoes again.

"The spoon is the only give-away that this has not already been eaten once. From Facebook as 'Yum.'"

Ok, you can probably stop reading now. We understand if you need to go throw up and scorn us forever.

"Failed attempt at Chicken "'Cordon Bleu'"

failed chicken


Failed attempt AT LIFE.

"Not one double tap.. NOT ONE!!! #breffusforbae"

Cooking for Bae

Spongy brain pancakes -- just what we've NEVER wanted.

"One day yall broads will branch out from poo chips and eggs...one day #breffusforbae"

Cooking for Bae

Ok, WTF?

"Hot tuna, room temperature bread."



Canned tuna is questionable to being with, but hot tuna? The description is bad enough -- we didn't even need this depressing photo.

"I had nothing in my fridge apart from this. Ham and cheddar cheese."


Doesn't mean you should have done THIS with it!

"I tried to cook a pizza on a grill. Forgot to buy enough charcoal."

grilled pizza


We're fans of grilled pizza here. Why did you have to go and ruin that?

"Matured apple pudding, solidified into container's shape.



So mature.

"Homemade trail-mix."


What's wrong with those Cheerios?!

"He called them 'nachos' and enjoyed them like an everyday thing."


Whoever "he" is, we feel sorry for him.

"Egg salad sandwich."


The end.

Let us know if you stumble upon any particularly bad food porn this month!
