Inverse Flavored Foods

Mmmmm...Looks like chicken, tastes like ham...

A brand of food that tastes like one food but looks like another! Pizza that tastes like hot dogs and hot dogs that tastes like pizza! Brownie flavored potato chips. Add some excitement to your lunch with the random flavor box of random flavored objects that resemble cookies.

       you might like to think of a flavour wheel like a colour chart.

       I feel very compelled to fishbone this one.. but my vote keeps getting inverted.

       what if the ice cream tasted like clams? or something one really doesn't like.
xandram, Mar 07 2006

       Honey, take your medicine. It tastes like pizza, honestly. Remember how the steak tasted like ice cream? Really, mom? Absolutely, you bet! Oh okay >{gulp}< BLURRRGGGHHH! Blechch that's disgusting! Gotcha dear! Feel better!

       You got my bun. This would be a lot of laughs +

       The world would be a healthier place if salad greens tasted like chocolate. (+)
egbert, Mar 08 2006

       very good idea, unless you got a bad flavor, as xandram said. Pretty much impossible, but hey this is the halfbakery! (+)

       It just does not seem right eating cake and tasting sushi.   

       Gave me a good laugh though.

       lol@flavour wheel.   

       could you combine flavors, maybe, like where there is red-orange or blue-green, we could have something like...oh, say...   



       there's a whole slew of flavour possibilities. now if only we could find people to test them?

       I'll have a ananab please.

       I wonder how recognisable the flavours (especially artificial flavours) would be when taken out of context? For instance, Prawn Cocktail crisps only taste of prawn cocktail because (a) it says "Prawn Cocktail" on the packet and (b) I have come to associate that flavour with the words on the packet, despite the fact that they actually taste nothing like a prawn cocktail. I wonder if mashed potatoes flavoured the same way would be recognised as being prawn cocktaily.

       chedder matches apple. Tastes good! Try it!
Voice, May 18 2007

       this is the best idea ive ever heard of!!! exept it would be kinda confusing. whatever, its awsome.   

       [egbert] thats true. then, we would kill less cows and chikens
bobathie, May 19 2007

       //this is the best idea ive ever heard of!!!// I'm with you on that one. I hesitated a bit over vaccination, heavier-than-air flight and the microprocessor, but in the end the decision was clear.

       From the name alone I got some kind of idea of food that, when eaten, negates the aftertaste left in your mouth from other foods.
Fomoria, May 25 2007

       "From the name alone I got some kind of idea of food that, when eaten, negates the aftertaste left in your mouth from other foods."   

       Yeah, that's what I was thinking - like if you were to combine an inverse food with its normal counterpart, the flavors would go out of phase and the end result would taste like water.   

       If the combination had more of one than the other, the flavor would only go partly out of phase and the end result would taste like a metal tunnel.

       Recently, in Menorca, I had ice-cream that was flavoured to taste like (or maybe was made with) Mahon cheese.   

       I expected it to taste unpleasant, and bought it mainly out of curiosity. In the event, however, I was surprised to discover that it actually tasted really rather disgusting.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 06 2010

       I just discovered a local milk-shake stall that does over 100 flavours. Including Marmite. I went for blackcurrant.
wagster, Feb 06 2010

       Blackcurrant flavoured marmite? That's just disgusting.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 06 2010

       Yeah whatever but, like, hotdog flavoured pizza would be cool, right?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 06 2010

       I never huahuaed in my life.

       I think you should either start or stop taking those tablets.

       I'm wondering about allergies. If someone is allergic to peanuts, then will eating peant-flavored Jell-O cause an allergic reaction? What about broccoli-flavored peanuts? Seems to me there is a chance that twice as many foods as before will have to be avoided by people who have allergies. (Makes me doubly glad to personally not have any known allergies.)

       Hot Butter Popcorn flavoured jelly beans anyone? You should look into Jelly Bellies.
NoOneYouKnow, Feb 08 2010

       How about using Synsepalum dulcificum, also known as Miracle Fruit, to change the tastes of foods?
