pickle pocket

Came across a cute post at The Design Fort for pro­posed pack­ag­ing for indi­vid­u­al­ly wrapped pick­les. Hilar­i­ous. What makes this par­tic­u­lar­ly endear­ing is that I just find pick­les to be a fun­ny food. Turns out, there are a few foods that tick­le me, and I’ve deter­mined that tick­ly foods must pos­sess two essen­tial properties:

  1. They must have a fun­ny-sound­ing name.
  2. They must be asso­ci­at­ed with Amer­i­can culture.

Oth­er amus­ing foods: Any Host­ess cake (e.g., Twinkies, Ding Dongs)… SPAM (despite the fact that I’m a veg­e­tar­i­an, I’m quite enam­oured with SPAM…I’ve even con­sid­ered buy­ing the SPAM ear­rings). Note that both of the afore­men­tioned prop­er­ties must be present in order to make me gig­gle: a Her­shey’s Bar may be quite American…but the name is bor­ing; Cous cous is pret­ty fun­ny-sound­ing, but is not Amer­i­can kitsch.

Can any­one think of oth­er foods that meet these conditions?
