Misconstrudel

 

Misconstrudel (v)to mistakenly eat a food, thinking that it is something else—often leaving the eater disappointed or embarrassed

 

Please Note:  Misconstrudel (n) is something eaten by mistake, because one thinks it is something else.

 

Sample Scenario:  I misconstrudeled the oatmeal cookie for a chocolate chip cookie, and had to discreetly spit the dreaded raisins out into my napkin. Hate when that happens, especially if I compound the misconstrudel by mistaking a decoration for a napkin.

 

Observation

 

To me, almost nothing is worse than crunching into what you know is a chocolate chip cookie, only to find that it was a misconstrudel. Those luscious chips were really gooey raisins. The same goes for mistaking the toxic tofu for any other food that would be infinitely preferable to it.

 

One more thing:  Why aren’t there more oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on the market?
