Many people become vegetarians because of ethical concerns about eating living, breathing, and most importantly feeling animals so you’d think that’s the last thing merchants would want to stir up but anthropomorphic food is alive and well in commercials. These edible mascots are usually all too happy to sacrifice themselves, which usually happens off-screen to avoid unpleasantness (see: Vegetable Suicide), but no matter how sanitized it, there’s something very disturbing about eating sentient beings.
