Today, my girlfriend found out you can use food coloring in anything. Everything she cooks is now in bright neon colors. I feel like I'm in a Dr Seuss book. FML

I believe you meant to say: Would you like them in a box? Would you like them with a fox?

Or a rabbit in a hat with a bat and 64 Impala?

I wish I was little bit taller I wish I was a baller I wish I had a girl who looked good I would call her I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat And a six four Impala #19 This doesn't match this thread but completing it might have helped what you were attempting to do.

Hey, remember. Sam I Am tried the green eggs and ham and liked them. Maybe OP just needs to get past the color :P

strawberrywine22 30

Actually Sam I Am already liked them...the Cat in the Hat was the one who refused to try them until the end.

looks like Its been too long since I've read green eggs and ham :P sorry people

Actually, the cat in the hat was not in this book. The guy who didn't want to try them was a dog-like character.

Oops, you're right! I guess I'd better brush up on my Dr Seuss knowledge : P

Unless you want to learn the ingredients and "harmfulness" of food colouring, I suggest you stop reading this comment thread.

Yes, same for me. If she's happy with the food coloring, let her do it. It won't affect the taste of your food. I don't see a problem in here.

But it might harm their health if used a lot and very frequently, no? Food colouring isn't something natural, I've always assumed that it contains lots of toxic products.

Food coloring isn't lead paint, it's meant to be ingested.

So, technically, are trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Just because they sell it, doesn't mean you should eat it. McDonald's is a perfect example.

#42, but that's still not evidence that it's harmful. High fructose corn syrup and trans fat are actually harmful for a reason. Food coloring just makes your poop look exciting. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Still, it has to have some chemicals in it and although most of us consume a lot of them in our daily routine, it will still cause us harm.

I'm mostly playing Devil's Advocate here, I've absolutely nothing against food coloring. I've also never heard that it's bad for you.

#53 not all synthetic chemicals are harmful to humans, and food coloring does not pose any known problems. Yes, consuming too much is definitely not healthy, but "too much" is a lot. There's no way she uses that much. Believe it or not, the FDA and other countries' respective food administrations are usually very strict when giving permission to companies to sell their products.

I've heard that it does have a taste in large amounts- that's why red velvet cake taste different from chocolate.

Red velvet cake has a different taste because it's a different flavor with different ingredients...

Well, 44 you asked to be corrected... Trans fat and high fructose corn syrup are not bad in nature. Our society has decided we really like them and use them everywhere, so our daily intake as a society is very high. Anything in large quantities is bad. There are other reasons you see corn syrup and trans fats portrayed in a negative light, but most harm comes from people's inability to exercise moderation.

Right! I do not understand the problem, sounds awesome.

high fructose corn syrup is bad? what's bad bout it? people today might learn a little if they tried. don't listen to all those ads about low calorie diets. you can eat all the calories you want all they are is energy. you just need to make sure you are using all the calories you are eating cause that is when you get fat. plus the liquid food coloring has carcinogens in it but you can get organic powdered food dyes that are perfectly safe. they usually cost more though. the food dyes that it's gf is using will give him cancer so yeah he could die from green eggs and ham. don't trust Sam I am!!

#44, OP is in the US. The US FDA is more permissive with food colorings than some other countries, even allowing colorings that are outright banned elsewhere. OP's right to be cautious, and may want to research what she's using before eating more "neon."

You are an idiot..there is nothing in food dye that gives you cancer.

actually yes there is check down in the comments certain food dyes have been linked to cancers. learn a little and dont be an ass.

I want to eat neon green pancakes. :)

Should really research where food coloring comes from and how unhealthy it is. >.>

Jordath_Fil 11

And you should really learn what a joke is.

Dye all her clothes as retaliation :) Or start cooking

strawberrywine22 30

She has a little fun with her cooking and he should destroy her clothing?

4 - Newsflash: food coloring doesn't ruin food. It does absolutely nothing except change the color.

#28 and #11 > Newsflash, that was sarcasm... you should try it sometimes....

CharresBarkrey 15

You can't just say your shitty comment was sarcasm every ******* time it gets thumbed down into oblivion or someone proves you wrong. That was very clearly NOT sarcasm, and we made you look stupid. Suck it up, stop making excuses.

Lucky you! I've always wanted to try green eggs and ham.

strawberrywine22 30

I make it every year. It's just like regular eggs and ham, only about 20% cooler.

They used to serve green eggs and ham regularly at my school when I was little. It was pretty cool.

VIPwhenever 15

I think it was in 2nd grade they had served green eggs and ham. Since at the time I didn't like eggs I refused to eat it. Everyone called me Sam I am that day. (very unimportant but thought I'd share.)

Did it while I was in the Navy. Part of our polliwog initiation! Looks gross, it's also military food, but actually really good!

:/ if your meat is green I'd double check to make sure it really was just food coloring.

APersonalProblem 13

You better hope that's all she is using.

My sister once made rainbow cupcakes - they looked and tasted delicious... but my turd came out as bright green. Beware. You have been warned.

That is the one problem with food coloring, it colors EVERYTHING else! But if your nasty minded, or high, it looks so cool!

plum_lovin 28

I'm sorry to say but that is something I really didn't need to know...

Who cares, your girlfriend is COOKING for you. If it tastes good, does it really matter what color it is?

Multi colored chicken wings? I can dig it.
