Unappetizing food creations pose the ultimate battle in one's head consisting of hunger versus sensibility. Unless you are Hannibal Lecter, if you know that something that resembles human brains is made of chocolate, you are still going to be skeptical about trying it. It is the thrill that is created by these food creations that makes them so popular. Humans are fascinated with the bizarre and grotesque.

Gross-looking foods are something that gain popularity around the time of Halloween, as they certainly fit in with the theme of scary and yucky. That being said, they still maintain popularity throughout the year.

The juxtaposition created by unappetizing food creations will certainly make for a fun and ironic twist on mundane eating habits and add a little excitement to your lunchbox.
