White Castle Whey Protein Powder

Who hasn’t enjoyed a slider or many enjoyed a case with friends? Usually, that slider craving comes at the end of an evening, right? What if those classic White Castle was a way to get your best body ever? The White Castle Whey Protein Powder food prank offered that product for April Fools.

Let’s be real, White Castle Whey Protein Powder sounded like a joke. Although many people could wish that this product could be real. Big muscles and slider enjoyment sounds like a winning combination. Maybe in an alternative world this product could really happen.

Who hasn’t been tempted by the aromas wafting from an Auntie Anne’s? For this April Fools food prank, Auntie Anne’s offered Auntie Anne’s “House of A” Heavenly Scent Essential Pretzel Oils. That’s right, everyone can enjoy the scent of a delicious warm pretzel at any time with these scents.

Now, I don’t know if I would want to smell like a pretzel every day. The idea of a scent that could maybe curb carb cravings is tempting. Who wouldn’t want a scent that satisfies without the calories?

Energizer Bunny is the new PEEPS® Celebrity Creative Director

PEEPS are a classic Easter treat. With April Fools falling on Easter, it seemed likely that PEEPS was going to do something fun. Announcing that the Energizer Bunny is the new PEEPS® Celebrity Creative Director was cute.

With all the different type of PEEPS available, why not make a pink bunny with glasses. Actually, this collaboration would have been a fun one. I would have opted to by some of these special candies, just because.

Burger King Chocolate Whopper

Could the classic Whopper be turned into a dessert? This idea is what Burger King proposed for this April Fools joke. The whole burger was transformed into a dessert. Chocolate patty, sweet sauces and dessert condiments combined to make this burger.

Actually this idea isn’t too farfetched. Many people try these type of pranks at home. Who hasn’t tried to pull a food switch?

Thinking about the Burger King idea, could you pull an April Fools food prank at home? It is easy enough to swap out foods. Sure, some ideas are easier than others. Even just filling a doughnut box with veggies works.

Creative food pranks can be found all over the internet and Pinterest. Since April Fools is on Easter, a few swaps in the Easter basket can be fun for the Easter bunny (or parents). Maybe even fill some of those eggs with some marbles instead of jelly beans.
