We’ve already taken a look at 2 of the many food-related Mandela Effect mysteries that have popped up in the media over the last few years, and today we figured why not investigate four more instances?
The Mandela Effect can really mess with your mind. You remember something a certain way, but yet society states that you’re wrong, or at least you’re remembering it wrong. The only problem is that there are others out there that remember it the same exact way that you do.
Who is wrong here? That’s the question and really it kind of makes you feel like you’re either the butt of a joke or are starring in some kind of suspenseful thriller in which you’re at the center of some creepy cover-up but yet you didn’t receive the big paycheck from Paramount Pictures.
What are some more examples of the Mandela Effect in relation to the food we love?
To quickly review, the Mandela Effect is defined as:
"“The Mandela Effect refers to a situation in which a large mass of people believes that an event occurred when it did not. The term was originated in 2009 by Fiona Broome, after she discovered that she, along with a number of others, believed that Nelson Mandela had died in the 1980s (when he actually died in 2013).”-via verywellmind.com"
King Henry and the non-existent Turkey leg
When many think of good old King Henry, who by the way was the king of England from the 22nd of April 1509 until 1547, which was when he passed away, according to Wikipedia.
He is also quite known for his many marriages—six to be exact— and although he was known as a lothario of sorts because of said marriages, it was rumored that he also had a love of turkey legs, or so we all thought.
Many had an image of good old King Henry munching on a turkey leg but as it turns out…BAM! Mandela Effect. There is no artwork of him holding or eating the sizeable leg of poultry.
The Fruit Loop Trooth
As it turns out, it isn’t Fruit Loops at all, but Froot Loops. That doesn’t change the fact that many remember it being Fruit Loops.
What causes this, though? Last time we looked at how many believe that history has been changed, but the aforementioned source states that it can come down simply to false memories and a large group of people having that same exact memory, which I’ll admit is pretty coincidental.
But it can even come down to society practicing their favorite pastime as of late. It’s known as revisionist history, in which people in a position to inform others about past events either mistakenly report something to be false, or they do so intentionally or thinking they know better, which makes no sense but sadly happens every day.
Essentially these people are speaking from the place they usually sit on, as the old expression goes, and to soften it a tad for you my dear readers…
Oscar’s just a bunch of Baloney and the Mad Kit Kat Dash
Okay, okay, I did my best to make that last one sound like a title to some caper mystery, and it’s a hyphen and not a dash but give me a break, will ya? See what I did there?
But many remember the Kit Kat packages having the aforementioned hyphen in between both the kit and the kat…even though there never was one…. And of course some even remember Oscar Mayer having an ‘e’ before the ‘y’ there in Mayer, but an ‘a’ it is.
In the end, there are those that do not remember the versions a few of us out here remember, which makes us feel a tad crazy, I must admit, but maybe that just means they weren’t chosen for the experiment being played on the portion of us who do remember the way it once was.
What’s to come of us, dear readers? What is the root of this experiment and who is behind it? Stay tuned…as the Mandela Effect is changing things all the time…soon, my name won’t be Domenic Marinelli but Dominic…. Where does it end, dear readers…?
