This year was a lot.

1. Starbucks created the Unicorn Frappuccino, the first of many fraps that would capture the ~food trend of the moment~.

3. An extra in a gay porno became an unexpected star when she blurted out the iconic line, "Right in front of my salad?!"

4. A bunch of rich people were served a sad-ass sandwich at Fyre Festival.

Just about everyone has read the story about the much anticipated (and utterly disastrous) Fyre Festival — but one visual that stood out was a tweet of a sad-looking "sandwich." The festival promised guests a catered dinner, and the sandwich became a visual representation of the mess that was actually served.

5. Hamburger emojis started a heated debate over the proper placement of cheese.

A Twitterstorm started when someone pointed out that Google's burger placed the cheese on the bottom of the burger while Apple's placed it on top. The debate generated so many responses that Google's CEO tweeted, "Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!"

6. Season two of Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner premiered.

7. Spaghetti donuts made their debut at Smorgasburg food market — and people were both disgusted and intrigued.

8. Avocados were disrespected over and over again.

9. ...As was sushi.

10. Someone invented clear pumpkin pie and people had ~opinions~.

11. Master of None gave us all serious food envy.

12. Rick and Morty's mention of McDonald's 1998 Szechuan sauce created enough buzz for them to bring it back for a limited time offer.

13. The internet fell in love with salt bae and his magical hands.

14. People slammed the New York Times for purporting to "discover" boba, and the outlet later apologized for it.

15. Amazon acquired Whole Foods and the grocery giant cut prices on many of its items.

The peanut butter "hack" essentially involves freezing slabs of peanut butter and laying the frozen squares onto your slices of bread. Once the squares have thawed, the peanut butter sandwiches are ready to be served. The whole process takes more than three hours, which is obviously way longer than it'd take you if you were to just spread room temperature peanut butter. *smh*

17. Edible Coookie Dough made its big debut at NYC's .

18. Stranger Things made Eggos culturally relevant again. (Not that we've ever not been into waffles.)
