OBVIOUS STATEMENT INCOMING: Do not eat any of these things. Do not lick lava. Do not chew on snail pellets. You will die/get extremely unwell/end up in hospital. These are for looking only, frens.
You = living under a rock if you haven’t heard of the absolutely batshit phenomenon of YouTubers eating Tide Pods. The trend (which is very bad, do not do that folks you will get incredibly ill) has spawned an entire meme about ‘forbidden snaccs’ – things that look like they’d be delicious, but you absolutely must not eat for death/sickness reasons.
We were inspired and started a completely useless and time-wasting conversation about things we have always wanted to eat but absolutely must never. To turn that wasted hour into something productive, I’ve made an article out of it!
FISH TANK PEBBLES
Mmmmm, fruit pebbles.
FAIRY DISHWASHER PODS
These are just the UK/Aussie version of Tide Pods. Lil’ poppy jelly bois.
Mmmmmffffffff I want to stick my TONGUE IN THAT HOT SAUCE.
OH GOD MY MOUTH IS SALIVATING. I think I may have tried to bite a chunk out of one of these as a kid. Double danger bc choking hazard. Good one, Mum.
BATH OIL BALLS
Remember these? They had bath oil in them and dissolved in the water but also WANT TO CONSUME.
Ooooh yeaaaah, fuck my broken ankle just gimme that icy snack pls.
LIP BALM EGG THINGIES
All lip balms are yummo-looking/smelling, but this one I especially want to consume. I wanna scrape a chunk off with my teeth NOW.
Mmmmm doggy jerky. Surely this is good for dogs and humans? No?
Remember when you were a kid and mum gave you these and it was like the best treat of your LIFE? Chocolate for DESSERT? Never mind that it was murdering the thousands of worms in your BOWEL, gimme an entire box.
Mmmm, look at those SLICES. Whack some butter on those babies.
KMmmm, foamy bois.
Godddd I really want to munch on this guy. Always have, always will.
LUSH BATH BOMBS
I wanna eat it dry, and I wanna drink the water in the bath. That is all.
STICKY ADHESIVE STUFF ON MAGAZINE ADD-ONS
Incredibly specific, incredibly forbidden snacc worthy.
THESE LOOK DELICIOUS, GOLDEN AND SPICY.
Ugggghhhhh, YES. Gimme that goopy goodness. Way better than Clag paste, IMO.
EASTER SHOWBAG STICKY HANDS
Only coloured chalk. Only freshies.
My dog ate one of these once and she just showed up at the back door chewing them so happily, bc she though she’d found a really special snack. Obviously we had to rush her to the dog hospital and they made her vomit, and she looked so distraught, likely because she thought we had ruined her one good thing in life. In short, even dogs think these look like good snacks.
Everyone roasted me good about this one, but COME ON. They look like large lollies.
Most forbidden drink.
Other most forbidden drink.
Have you seen these? They’re these small beads that absorb water and then make ~zesty~ decor for your plants. They are stupid and look terrible. I also want to eat them.
This is entirely because they look like real grapes, but better and more squishy.
AIR FRESHENER GELS
All gel things look edible. They are not, but I want to scrape the gel out of these and lick it. That is a fact.
Is this the worst thing I have included in this list? Maybe. Am I apologising? No.
