You’ve probably seen images on the internet of cake that look like things. It seems that you can’t grab onto your smartphone without worrying about it somehow turning into a delicious torte. But what about the opposite? What about things that look like food that you should, under no circumstances, sink your teeth into? Well, we’ve got 50+ perfect examples of forbidden snacks that you should definitely not eat.
The history of the potato goes back a long way. It was first grown in South America, a staple crop of the Incas.
