20 Best Break-Up Foods

20 Best Break-Up Foods
What’s this I hear? Some fool let you escape from their love clutches? This exemplary list of tasty treats to get you through this terrible (awesome) time (of freedom).

What’s this I hear? Some fool let you – beautiful, marvelous, intelligent you – escape from the depths of their love clutches?

Man, whatever – you are too fantastic to suffer fools. I know you might be like: “Well dang, that holiday for red stuff and inaccurate representations of the fist-sized muscle that powers the cardiovascular system is just around the corner and I was totes looking forward to some swag.”

Well, you can still celebrate! Only now you get to celebrate how YOU want. You can make all kinds of delicious foodstuffs that YOU like AND you can eat them in your super-comfy pants in the warmth and comfort of your own home.

But wait, you’re supposed to be heartbroken (it’s fine to be ironic about it). I conducted intensive research and discovered that the food-based elements for dealing with a broken heart consist of chocolate, ice cream, fried stuff and carbs – ALL of the carbs.
