23 Food Examples Of The Mandela Effect That’ll Make You Think You’re In A Parallel Universe

FYI: "Fruit Loops" is actually spelled "Froot Loops."

I'm about to show you 23 images that will make you think you've been living in an alternate reality, because for some reason your brain has remembered them as something entirely different from what they truly are.

These false memories are known as "the Mandela effect," and they're super trippy. Enjoy.

1. How many T's are there in the middle of the "Sweet Tarts" logo? Just one: Sweetarts.

2. Have you ever had a Cup 'o Noodles? No, you haven't, because it's just "Cup Noodles."

3. Double Stuffed Oreos are the best. Sorry, I mean Double Stuf Oreos.

4. Everyone's favorite childhood snack is Pixie Stix. Um, I mean Pixy Stix.

5. And while we're here, the "Fruit" in "Fruit Loops" is actually spelled with two O's. Weird.

Kellogg's

6. "Oscar Meyer" isn't really spelled that way. Your bologna has a last name, and it's M-A-Y-E-R.

7. Doesn't "Chic-fil-A" look correct? Unfortunately, it's really spelled "Chick-fil-A."

8. FYI: Jiffy peanut butter doesn't exist. It's always been "Jif."

9. Even though we pronounce it like "Funyons," the spelling is actually "Funyuns."

10. Remember Mike 'N Ike candies? They've always been named Mike and Ike.

11. Speaking of incorrect names, it's not "Chuckie Cheese's." It's "Chuck E. Cheese's."

12. And it's actually "Cap'n Crunch," not "Captain Crunch."

13. Cheese-Its, Cheez-Its, and Cheez Its are all incorrect spellings. It's just "Cheez-It." Freaky!

14. Also, it was never "Coke Zero." The drink's real name was "Coca-Cola Zero."

15. You know how "Kit-Kat" has that hyphen in it? Yeah, it actually doesn't.

Nestlé

16. Do you remember what the Sunkist logo looks like? Probably not, because the "u" and "n" are connected.

17. Nestlé's chocolate powder is called Nesquick, right? Wrong. It's Nesquik.

18. Not only is the correct spelling "York Peppermint Pattie," but the slogan is "Get the sensation," not "Feel the sensation."

Hershey

19. Do you love Rice Krispie treats? What about Rice Crispy cereal? Sorry, but the name has always been "Rice Krispies."

20. I think we can all agree that the perfect after-school snack was Tostino's Pizza Rolls. I mean Totino's Pizza Rolls.

21. Which do you remember: Coco Puffs or Cocoa Puffs? The correct spelling is the latter.

22. How many F's are in the Cliff Bar logo? Just one! It's "Clif Bar."

23. And did you know that Tony the Tiger's nose isn't black? It's actually blue.
