Food Lovers Reveal The Deadliest Edible Weapons They'd Pick For An All Out Food Fight

We've all been dying to start one, as per every elementary school movie from the 90s. And once we do, it's war. In war, one has to strategize. What's the best approach to beating the enemy?

Redditor lylekay asked:

What would be your weapon of choice in a food fight to the death?

Here are people's evil choices.

Durian Durian

On average 8 people a year are killed by falling durians, or something along that line. Durian is the one true battle fruit.

EVOO

A bottle of olive oil. When the enemy charges at me with their projectile apples I'll make the arena slippery. When they slip and fall I'll break the bottle over their head and stab them with the remaining shards.

Napalm Sugar

To the death?

A pot of melted sugar. As a professional chef, I've seen that sh*t do some serious damage.

Octopunishment

My dad told me that grandma used to have this long dried octopus tentacle that she used to whack my dad and my uncle on the buttocks when they were up to no good. Apparently it's from an old octopus that got too big and too tough to eat so it became a weapon of mass punishment.

Deliciously Deadly

A leg of prosciutto. That hardened piece of meat and bone would be the perfect bludgeoning weapon

Revenge

A crate of chocolate milks.

It was 10th grade, and I was in the first food fight of my life. I was a square and didn't wanna get in trouble, so my friend and I began making our way across the cafeteria towards the exit. Suddenly I look up, and in slow motion, something is arching through the air, right towards me. It's a little carton if chocolate milk. And it's open.

My friend says he still recalls vividly the look of surprise and disgust on my face as that milk carton struck me, and milk splashed all over my head and the hood of my favorite sweatshirt. He maintains it was one of the funniest things he'd ever seen.

So in honor of that memory, it seems only fitting that I take up the mantle of chocolate milk caster the next time I fight with food.

AKA Baguette

I'd tie a pineapple to a French loaf of bread with spaghetti as a makeshift mace.

Sharp Cereal

Captain Crunch. Prepare to be eviscerated.

Someone Call Steinbeck

The grapes of wrath.

Bugs Bunny Warfare

A carrot as a "stabbing weapon". A watermelon for the size

Just Cruel

Supersoaker filled with ghost pepper water

More Napalm

Molten cheese should be effective as napalm.

Chemical Warfare

Peanuts because my chances of the other person being allergic to them is pretty decent.

Back To Baguettes

Doritos stuck in a baguette to make a makeshift spiked bat.

Cocktail

Vodka bottle turned into Molotov.

Thanks-Taking

Endless Buckets upon buckets of boiling gravy, everyone will need to get high ground or face the boiling gravy, gravy can turn most bread weapons into mush, and to top it all off I will have dinner with a show.

Combined Forces

A christingle - it's got everything. The orange could do some damage if you throw it hard enough. There are toothpicks which could cause some bleeding. And, to top it all off, the lit candle could be used to burn someone.

Tradition

Christmas fruitcake. Especially if it were still shrink-wrapped. They're dense and compact. Easy to throw hard and heavy enough to do some damage.

A New Crusade

I would own a zucchini sword and using it, I will create a whole army of children who do as I command out of fear of being hit with my zucchini (sounds bad). These children will annihilate all others in their paths because I have so many in my army and they can easily be replaced because there is never a shortage of children afraid of zucchini. Every couple hundred children I will have one being force fed gross amounts of spinach until they are 6x bigger and stronger than the rest and these children would do all the heavy hitting and smashing down of castle walls. Oh and my name will be The Zucc(hini).

Sauce Boss

Do Sauces count in a foodfight? Especially if they are made from fruits? I would get a spoon and flick one of those super hot hot-sauces at people. Some people wouldn't mind of course but there are some absurdly hot sauces out there that most people would basically be screaming in pain especially if they got it in their mouth/eyes. I'm talking about 2 million Scoville unit sauces.

Unfortunately, not every person is able to stay settled in one home their entire lives. Some people are constantly moving around.

Be it for a job, or as a lifestyle choice, the reasoning is never fully uniform. But it does cause a lot of stress, and it can be really helpful to have some guiding principles set up everywhere.

For anybody who's worked at least a few months in the food service industry, that adage that "the customer is always right" can be a total tease.

As much as adults regularly hammer home the importance of honesty with their children, parents are responsible for a significant amount of white lies and bent truth.

Remember Theranos? It was a breakthrough technology company that claimed to have devised blood tests that required very tiny amounts of blood. The hype was real: In 2015, Theranos received a $9 billion valuation and its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes, seemed prime to become a household name. Shortly afterward, she was exposed as a fraud; her trial (on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud) has been postponed several times as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

After Redditor LineofDeath asked the online community, "What was supposed to be the next big thing but totally flopped?" people reminded us how you should never fall for the hype.
