27 Buildings Shaped Like Food That's Sold There



When it comes to structures that resemble food, it’s not just water towers that have all the fun. Buildings shaped as food are located across the globe, and once they are spotted they make any one want to venture inside.  Imaginative, eccentric and hugely nostalgic, these food-shaped structures hark back to a time when effectively marketing your business could mean running it out of a three-story citrus fruit. These 27 buildings are all shaped like edible items, from fruit to soda, and most of them, at some point in time, were involved in the production or sale of those items.

"Hangry" Has Officially Made It Into the Dictionary 

Anyone who has ever felt so hungry to the point of getting angry can finally associate that feeling with an official word: hangry.

Although the term is just being recognized officially, it has long been part of a common vernacular and dates as far back as the 1950s, according to Oxford English Dictionary.

“It is only in the 21st century that the word hangry, a blend of hungry and angry used colloquially to mean ‘bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger,’ has entered common use,” Katherine Connor Martin, Oxford University Press’ head of U.S. Dictionaries, said in a press release.

Funny phrases using the word hangry have been seen on memes, social media, merchandise, apps and even ad campaigns in recent years.

The candy brand Snickers’ slogan “You’re not you when you’re hungry” captures the essence of what it means to be hangry and the company even created an entire ad campaign last year around the idea.

While that hungry and irritable feeling will pass with a quick bite to eat, the word hangry is now officially here to stay.
