The thing about pranks is that everyone expects you to do them on April Fools Day but no one expects you to do them on the day before or the day after. Keep that in mind while reading this list of easy food pranks anyone can pull off…on any day of the year.
The fact that Easter Sunday falls on April Fools Day this year means that it will be ripe for pranks just like this one, which takes a lot of effort but isn’t super mean.
This is actually a really nice prank. It looks like eggs and toast, but in fact, the whole dish is made out of cookies! That’s a win-win.
This prank is slightly meaner, but also way more hilarious. Put Mentos in ice cubes and serve them to your soda-loving friends. Soda explosions will ensue.
This prank is only acceptable because it doesn’t involve any actual mayonnaise. If it were the other way around and they put mayo in the pudding cups, it would be unspeakably cruel.
Now this is really mean! There’s nothing quite as terrible as biting into a raisin when you were led to believe it was a chocolate chip.
The next one is terrible…
If I were in the office and someone did this, I wouldn’t even try one of the donuts. Apparently, there wasn’t actually any sriracha in them, so only the brave were rewarded.
This is truly the work of the devil. Everyone knows M&M’s are far superior to both Skittles and Reese’s Pieces, and I don’t want to have to work to find them.
It’s like the King Cake for Mardi Gras, only approximately 10 million times grosser.
Have you been duped by the promise of sweets before?
Yeah, it’s not fun.
As someone who always uses a knife to cut her caramel apples, I would not fall for this trick. I suggest you do the same.
The next one is…a lot…
Tell your friends you made a pie and then serve them this, which looks like raspberry cream and chocolate mousse but is actually meat and mashed potatoes that have been dyed pink. Hey, you didn’t say it was a sweet pie!
The old hot sauce in the soda cup trick is really only for those who don’t care about losing their friend forever. It’s a really mean one.
I take it back; this one is way worse than hot sauce in a soda cup.
That is instant vomit material right there.
What would this even taste like?
Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s not good.
This one’s fairly harmless. All you have to do is serve your friend a “drink” that’s actually Jello and cannot get drunk! They’ll figure it out soon enough and have a good laugh.
We all ate Play-Doh as a kid, so this isn’t too mean.
What if you learn you really have a taste for it?
This really does look like a sunny-side-up egg and French fries.
This is like a prank for your own mouth and I don’t know how to feel about it.
This is actually more like a prank on yourself since you’ll probably get called into the principal and have to explain who exactly you were trying to trick here.
These “cake pops” are really chocolate-covered Brussels sprouts, and honestly, this just reads to me like a giant waste of perfectly good chocolate.
Toothpaste Oreos used to be the go-to food prank until they released mint Oreos. Those rendered this fairly obsolete.
