Announcement: The Hall of Fame

Do you enjoy reading Food In Real Life, but only when the food looks like the picture on its packaging? Do you despise finding out that not everything comes as advertised? Do you hope to stay this sheltered for the rest of your life?

If so, then have I got a deal for you: The Food In Real Life Hall of Fame! Featuring only those meals that have earned a full 5 out of 5 score for their looks, so you can continue living in ignorant bliss.

There’s an RSS feed too, so those of you that prefer the confines of some homely feed reader to the beauty of this site can lie to yourself just as easily as the rest of us.

Update: I’ve had to turn on moderation for anonymous comments. You can thank the loser who is spamming the comments with “cheap airline ticket” links. Thanks a lot, guy.

    I agree with the gist of the two previous comments. Kudos to you for providing us with these great reads. As well, I think that there should be a section of the hall of fame tailored specifically to foods that have received a 5 out of 5 in taste from you (or at least above a 4 out of 5). I think this would be neat and handy when someone is looking for a quick fix, because in all honesty, looks are the least of my worries with packaged foods if I’m not presenting it to anyone. It’s quite nice to look at foods with adequate packaging photos in times of leisure, but when you’re hungry and going grocery shopping soon, flavor is what’s more important to most people. Great job, though. This site is a quality source for real food packaging information.

    How about adding “The Hall of Shame”. Personally I think the hall of shame would be even more popular the “The Hall of Fame”. People love to see a hot mess.
