The Day in Food-Related April Fool’s Jokes

Falafel shots and hot dog air coming soon to a mobile vendor near you!

For Y&H, there's usually a pattern to my April Fool's Day, and it goes like this:  I login to the computer, call up Google to conduct a search, and sit there slack-jawed for a minute while reading about the Google Gulp or Google Romance or (the best one yet) Google Paper.

Then I take another swig of coffee, realize what day it is, and remind myself that I'm still gullible. This year's Google prank, alas, failed miserably to yank my chain.

But there were other good ones out there, a number of them food-related. Take a look:
