Seriously, there's no way to eat this without looking like a drunken caveman.
Melty Ice Cream
On a hot day, ice cream tends to melt faster than you can enjoy its blessings. Don't get caught with the creamy, gooey evidence on your face.

The orange menace of all snack foods. They keep it cheesy all right, and then they leave a residue of oily cheddar dust on everything you've touched all day.
We all love a cheesy, juicy, mouth-watering burger. A solid hunk of cow slapped between two buns cooked to perfection is pure edible bliss. Never mind the juice running down your chin and arms posing as an aphrodisiac.

Similar to spaghetti and its sauce-flipping tendencies, meatballs fall out of sandwiches quickly, leaving a saucy body outline on anything they touch.
