Replica foods are in a class all their own. They're intriguing, weird, gross when dusty, and just plain funny. In a window, or on a dessert cart for display, or even on a buffet line, you want to touch it--just to make sure it's not real. The suppliers are everywhere, and we can feel a really expensive yet epic April Fools' Day joke in the works here . . . While many of the plastic party trays make reasonable sense, we found some funnies that were just too good to keep to ourselves.

Aunt Bubbies Matzo Ball Soup.

For a mere $45 you can be the proud owner of a fake bowl of broth with two carrot slices and one tiny matzo ball. Not only does that make Jewish grandmas everywhere sad, but it's just depressing to only get one measly matzo ball, right?! Aren't you worth more than that?

Repli-kale.

"Our top-selling Repli-kaleā„¢ always looks fresh, never wilted. Display it once and then forget it!" I really hope you don't forget it, because if you do, it'll be teeming with God-knows-what kinds of bacteria, salad dressing globs, and linty croutons from three months ago. Isn't kale easily the cheapest and most hearty leafy green available? Remind me why we need to fake it?

Fakesgiving Dinner.

They know they can't actually serve this to the 15 people coming over for Thanksgiving, right? I could see them maybe using this for a film shoot or something. Even then, at some point during the dinner scene, someone (Clark) has to carve and eat the turkey, presenting the obvious problem with this arrangement.

Half a Banana.

If I see a half-eaten banana lying around, the first thing I'm thinking is, "Yeah, I want that!" No. When I see a half-eaten banana lying around I think, "Gross! Who left their banana sitting there and forgot about it?" And then I throw it away. In what scenario do you need a fake half banana? The real thing is cheap and easy to find, pretty much eliminating the need for a fake one.

Grapes and Roses Bread.What? What is this? A loaf of bread with grapes and roses on it?! Did I miss something? Where am I buying this? Does anyone else see this as a completely made-up food item?

Tripe.

Sickest. This may be the one instance when I'm thankful for faux foods. Usually I want to eat the real food, but now I see why having a fake or two lying around could be beneficial. Even so, the presentation here is pretty nasty.

Enchilada?

This is supposed to be an enchilada? From where? This "enchilada" (we'll go ahead and pretend we agree) looks like it belongs with the other misfits, like Yukon Cornelius and Herbie the dentist. Usually they come in a whole sheet pan, but since this one is so ugly and brown, it's probably better off being alone.
