It is well known that
aliens are among
us. Hundreds or thousands of
alien races live with us
here on Earth. Some are terrified refugees from
evil galactic empires.
Others just stopped by
for a nosh.
But they share one thing in common: most terran food is poisonous to
them. Think about it. Would you munch on
Martian mushrooms? Or
feast on some random
that you found in a swamp on Venus? Not likely! So you can't expect the
Pod Worms to go around ordering Number 2 from
Bell, now can you?
But the aliens are clever. They have developed Secret Codes that let
them know what is safe for their particular race to eat. These codes are
on the packages, cans and bottles that you buy daily. They are subtle,
however, and you might not have noticed them.
That's why we are here. We have collected a variety of these Alien
Food Symbols. Educate yourself. Educate others. Knowledge may be our
Gerber's Baby Food
This exhibit is from the lid of a
Gerber's Baby Food jar. Clearly visible is a schematic drawing of
a planet with a tilted axis and two small moons. Could it be Mars?
There is also an unusual and mysterious mathematical formula:
A/R. What could it mean? Is it
part of a Jenny Craig plan for Martians?
Ruffle's Potato Chips
package of Ruffles Potato Chips came to our attention via a contact at
Delta Airlines. On the back of the package, on the lower right hand
corner, there are six small, colored squares. On closer examination,
some of these squares have microscopic writing in them. (See the
leftmost square in the enlargement below.)
Obviously, the aliens for whom Ruffles are intended are capable of
seeing colors. But they must also have amazing visual acuity, as
humans cannot resolve this microscopic writing without magnification.
Who knows what this writing actually means?
more surprising is the large symbol on the right hand side of the
back. This is by far the largest and most blatant alien food symbol we
have encountered. The numeral "1" on their planet surely signifies
their belief in the primacy of their position in the galaxy. Clearly,
these aliens (probably the Ploids) are very confident in their
position on our planet!
What does the phrase on the right of the symbol mean? "Redeem by
12/31/00". Who was to be redeemed? Was this some secret deadline to
which the aliens were working? And to what end?
Fritos "Corn" Chips
package of Fritos came to us courtesy of another brave Delta Airlines
employee. At first glance, there do not appear to be any alien food
symbols at all. But that alone should make us suspicious. Surely
Fritos were not developed for human consumption! And indeed,
that is correct.
Look closely at the small, seemingly black square in the middle of
the package's back. This is not some innocent part of the package! We
believe it is a sophisticated tag that can only be viewed in the
infra-red wavelengths, outside of the realm that humans can see. This
race of aliens can see things that we cannot!
Pepperidge Farm Cookies
Farm seems to be in the business of taking perfectly good cookie
recipes and churning out dull and tasteless replacements. Interesting,
isn't it, that they put chess pieces on these packages? Is this wry
acquiencense to the grand game that the aliens are playing?
the front of the package, towards the bottom, just next to the net
weight, is a curious symbol. You might think that part of it is merely
a marking indicating that these cookies are Kosher. Turn it sideways,
however, and it portrays a huge alien ship hovering over a planet -
perhaps our own? Is the symbol of a magnet inside the planet somehow
important to these aliens?
Mustard is a very simple thing to make. You take mustard seeds,
mash them up, and add some vinegar. Look at all of the other
ingredients in this small package of Hellmann's Mustard! We hope it is
obvious by now what this implies.
look at the symbol on the lower right of the package. This might
represent a planet with dual rings, or some interstellar event that is
important to this alien race. But it turns out to be more than that,
and the clue comes in the writing to the symbol's left: BLUE RIBBON
DEVICE [is a] registered trademark ... of Bestfoods.
This Blue Ribbon Device is some advanced alien technology -
perhaps a teleportation device - and Bestfoods knows all about it! Are
they already in league with the aliens?
Salt and Pepper
What could be more innocent than the individual packages of salt
and pepper they give you with your meal on airline flights? Or more
You might think it is simple salt, a necessary part of a human
diet. But you would be wrong. Yes, it contains salt, but the makers of
this small packet admit that it also contains:
- Sodium silicoaluminate
- Potassium iodide
- Sodium carbonate
We can only hope that the alien race that recognizes this
symbol finds an airline treat acceptable to its strange pallet.
Tell the truth. Didn't you always wonder about the origin of that
strange "Snack Mix", a combination of all of the oddly shaped and (if
you read the ingredients list) oddly constituted things you could
imagine? Well, wonder no longer.
recognize the tell-tale symbology of The Others in this close-up of
the obscure lower left part of the back of the package. Is this the
feeding position of a snake-like race? Or perhaps the throne of a race
that presumes to rule the galaxy?
And what about this?
Do you remember this from Ruffle's Potato Chips?
Or rather, something like it? We suspect this is a standard
message, in some vocabulary that we have not yet penetrated, to an
alien race that we have not yet identified. Perhaps they have food
restrictions within their own race that we have not yet understood?
This might be a clue we can use to combat their insidious plot.
A British company, perhaps already in the service of the aliens,
produces a food-like product called Hula Hoops. Slyly, they use
reflective packaging to obscure their alliance with The Others.
advanced digital enhancement supplied by our sources, a terrifying
image emerges, showing subservient humans feeding this dominating race

Clearly, their slaves are feeding them packets of "Hula Hoops".
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Why is it that the aliens hide their hideous needs amongst our most
treasured cultural institutions? Are they mocking us?
"A taste above", this says. Above what, exactly?
And how much more obvious can they be than their use of this symbol
on the front of the package?
this indicate a race of beings that come from a distant star through a
portal, a portal that is beyond our meager scientific means?
Or is it their star in the middle of the gravestone of humanity?
Wireless LAN Snack
fear that it is worse than we thought. What we thought was restricted
to certain packaged foodstuffs is not.
We came to this horrifying realization recently as our attention
was drawn to the back of the very PC/MCIA card that we use for
wireless Ethernet access.

This alien race can only survive on Earth in helmeted suits that
immerse them in their own, human-corrosive atmosphere.

here. Is this not obviously the head and the body of an alien race,
perhaps even a humanoid race, seen through the sacred triangular
window of their vessel? How many of you have already seen them here?
Our subsequent examination of other electronic components revealed
even more horrifying truths.
Have you ever wondered why they call the electrical adapter for
your laptop computer a power supply, when it is not the source
of electrical power for your laptop at all? How much more blatant can

Ready to Eat) for the galaxy at large.

their alien lair.
could this be but the trisexual Argulians? How obscene that they would
display their mating rituals on their foodstuff.
we see an image of a planet - is it Earth? - with the clear indication
of a magnet, a ray gun, and a symbol too small for human eyes to

nourished by the deceptive "power supply".
