Scholars have long debated why so many foods remind us of private parts. And, by extension, why we put them in our mouths. Which came first, the chicken or the dick joke?

I’ll leave that question for future generations, but in the meantime, thanks to the new, oh-so-fork-able DEVOUR™ frozen meals, I have been granted funding to determine, once and for all, a scientific ranking of the foods that make us think of fork-ing all night long. Here they are, in a very particular order:

The previous foods might make us think of sex, but only in a conceptual way; the new DEVOUR™ frozen meals are so ridiculously delicious that they are basically orgasmic. Try everything from the Pulled Chicken Burrito Bowl to Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese (OMFG), available in your local freezer aisle. You’ll crave them — and eat them — in a whole new way.
