Oftentimes, our eyes tell our tongues what food is going to taste like.
We've undoubtedly become accustomed to anticipating certain flavors just by looking at them. You ever pour someone dark-colored soda in a glass without telling them the flavor, and then they assume it's cola and it ends up being root beer or grape? There's always that initial instant shock that they have, but you can see them rather quickly figure out that they're just anticipated the wrong flavor and you're not trying to poison them or anything.
Now take that same initial flavor shock and multiply it by a million to get what biting into this plate of spaghetti and meatball gelato must be like. That's right: What you're seeing here isn't spaghetti and meatballs — it's gelato.
That's right. Gelato was constructed to look like another Italian staple; a very savory one. And we know what you're thinking: This doesn't look exactly like the most appetizing spaghetti and meatballs in the world — but it also really, really doesn't look like gelato.
So, understandably, it's got people seriously befuddled. They're confused about not only what they're seeing, but also why this had to happen in the first place.
Some don't like the idea of it. "Why does that look gross to me?'" one such hater pondered, and remarked on how it's uncomfortable when one food parades around pretending to be a food it's not. "I don't like foods that look like one thing and tastes like another." Amen to that — no one wants that kind of disappointment in their life!
Still, there were plenty of others who were chomping at the bit to try it out.
So what's your take? Spaghetti gelato? Yay or nay?
