    I suppose fake is in the eye of the beholder!

          I guess I would say "fake food" is something that:

          1. Bears little resemblance to anything found in nature

          2. Is impossible to replicate at home (I can't make Kraft Mac and cheese or Spam from "scratch" in my home kitchen).

            Perfect! Perfect description...

            My wife, despite constantly crediting me with broadening her food horizons (she grew up here in Cincinnati, but had never eaten at Frisch's Big Boy or had Cincinnati chili when we met....), has a weakness for this sort of stuff. On those rare evenings when I go out by myself (to the opera, or to a meeting at our parish), leaving her and our son home alone, she will ask that I purchase the makings for her favorite "fake food" meal: Hamburger Helper (Cheeseburger Macaroni variety) and "tube biscuits" (Pillsbury, naturally).

            *sigh*....the struggle continues....

              I just found another one, but only if you add "I don't want to replicate it! I can do better at home!" It's Purnell's Pride Country Sausage Gravy. Edible in a pinch, as long as you pretend not to notice the translucent, old-dishwater gray color.

                RickF: I hear you on Purnells but I have recently been buying Libbys sausage gravy at Walmart. I thought it was pretty dadgum good. I baked some of canned bisquits and heated the Libby's sausage gravy and added some pepper, it was real good.
