Here's why food commercials are a con

Some of these 'hacks' will shock you

It is no secret that food manufacturers try and make themselves appear better than they actually are, everyone knows that. But how far do they actually take it? All food adverts you see on television or on the street will be altered in a way which makes the meal inedible.

For example, did you know they use shaving foam instead of whipped cream in adverts because it doesn't melt as fast? Did you know that they put washing up liquid in beer to create the perfect froth? All these things are what goes on behind the scenes to make the food look more appealing. It's not like they serve it to you like this but it does cheat you for when you finally get a burger that is not as shiny or as big as you were promised.

What are your thoughts on this?

  • As an aside, not everything has to be a 'hack', especially when talking about the act of visually altering food for marketing purposes, as it's not a shortcut to anything. It's just one of those current annoying buzzwords that gets wildly overused. Is buying chips "hacking a potato"?
