What Food Really Looks Like

A while back I linked to a website that took a bunch of fast food items and compared them to what they looked like in their advertisements.

Well today I've got a link to a German website that looked at over 100 store-bought products (with a few fast food items thrown in for good measure) and did the same thing.

Let's just say that food stylists (the folks who take pictures of these products) are really, really good at their jobs.

Here's a quick video short from that same German website.

Words of advice?

You don't want to buy the herring salad.

    That's gross! But so interesting.

  2. I would like to think of something deep and meaningful to say but all I can think of is "EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!"

    The food stylists are good at their job and so are the advertisers in general. It's taken me years to wake up and realize that the food will NEVER taste as good as the picture looks on the front of the package.

  3. I actually had a gag reflex at the Herring Salad.
