Rainbow Colored Food For Adults Has to Stop

Look. I know when we were children few things were as thrilling as rainbow sprinkles, rainbow sherbet, and multi-colored cotton candy. No matter what our snarky teen cousins or older siblings would say, we knew that each color had a distinct flavor. And yes, “blue” was a flavor. But as we grew, we left behind this need to have food be thrilling by merit of its resemblance to rainbows. Until now apparently.

Rainbow is the latest food trend. And it needs to stop, because delicious does not mean looking like your meal has been churned out by a Play-Doh fun factory.

First Brooklyn was going bonkers over “rainbow bagels.” Becuz obvi.

Then candy-colored coffees came, because Snickers-flavored latte wasn’t #yolo enough.

How about sushi with rainbow sprinkles on top instead of roe? Taste buds are for establishment stooges!

And what in fresh hell is this?

Rainbow grilled cheese. Because cheese wasn’t mind-meltingly decadent and deeply satisfying enough on its own, so we needed to make it look like a Coachella nightmare.


Kristy Puchko values cheese more than most things, and would really prefer you get off her damn lawn.
