There’s an undercurrent in the many critiques of the fast food industry’s latest wave of wacky concoctions implying that those who willingly partake are as revolting as the foods themselves. Fast food is inextricably linked with low-income Americans, with supposedly unrefined palates and a dearth of knowledge about what’s “good” for them, while similarly convoluted, caloric treats at higher price points in finer establishments inspire block-long lines and thoughtful reviews. Regardless of one’s tastes, the classism is palpable.

If ‘stunt foods’ are attention-trolling, then foodie criticism is concern-trolling
