Food Secrets

* That luscious-looking roasted turkey has been washed in dish washing detergent, cooked briefly, painted with ten coats of food colouring, and blowtorched (to give it that lovely roasted look!)

* Those natural-looking bunches of grapes are sprayed with baby powder deodorant.

* The molded cream pudding is hard as a rock, because it contains ten times the amount of gelatin than a regular pudding would.

* The ice you see in that frosty beverage is most likely acrylic "ice," that refracts light better than real ice and doesn't melt.
* The rich-looking syrup being poured over pancakes? Motor oil works well here.

* Like that milkshake? It's a combination of food colouring, and whipped shortening!

* That great looking bowl of cereal on the cover of your cereal box is actually cereal and white glue, instead of milk, to prevent the cereal from getting soggy.

* Those veggies that look as if if they were just picked and dew-covered? Mix glycerine into a spray bottle with water and the drops will stay on for about 15 minutes. (Glycerin can be used to give any food a juicy, glistening appearance.)

* Want your Barbecued ribs to look mouth-watering? Half-cook the ribs, paint with wood stain and BBQ sauce.

* Those french fries in a carton? Each one has been individually selected, from hundreds of fries, and secured to a styrofoam base inside the package so that they stand up straight and fan out nicely.

* Hamburger? Do the following...
o Try frying the hamburger for 20 seconds on each side using red-hot skewers pressed against the meat to give it that "grilled" look
o Painting the hamburger with food colouring to give it that plump, brown, juicy appearance.
o Picking the best out of hundreds of hamburger buns (strategically gluing on extra sesame seeds if necessary)
o Lining the buns with cardboard so that they don't get soggy
o Snipping and spreading the burger from behind so that it looks bigger in the bun
o Selecting only the most perfect condiments and securing them in place with toothpicks
o Securing the top of the bun to the hamburger with toothpicks
