A t-shirt isn’t just a piece of clothing – it’s a statement. It tells people a little bit about who you are and what you love (and, in this case, what you love to eat). That’s why choosing which ones to wear isn’t a decision you should take lightly. We’ve decided to make it easier for you to let your flavor flag fly by introducing you to our round up of delicious t-shirts with 11 tasty tees perfect for foodies. Avid diners, your wardrobe’s about to get deliciousized.
You can wear this one to Coachella or the NYC Wine & Food Festival. The tongue-in-cheek tee was inspired by chef Rick Tramonto of R’evolution in New Orleans, who once quipped, “Every chef needs a good acid trip.” Totally, dude.
Reunited and It Feels So Good
This tee makes us smile. A mother and child together again, just like they should be. But then we start thinking we want to eat them both, which makes us smile in a more sinister way. Mmmm … doughnuts.
Mac ‘n’ Cheese
Warning: You may want to eat this shirt. This photorealistic tribute to one of the ultimate comfort foods looks like you could dig into it with a giant fork. Don’t. And please remember, it’s not cute if you drool on your clothing either.
We’ve always wondered where deviled eggs come from. Now we know, thanks to this clucking awesome t-shirt. Yes, we just went there.
What’s a pirate’s favorite drink? High sea. Sorry, couldn’t resist. Anyway, this swashbuckling shirt is worthy of a culinary buccaneer, whether they’re sailing the Seven Seas or spending some time ashore.
Sriracha t-shirts are so 2013. Don this saucy alternative instead. In doing so, you’ll be paying homage to one of the greatest purveyors of umami in the world.
No matter where you’re from, you probably think you grew up eating the best pizza in the world. ‘za pride runs deep. Show your love for your hometown slice with this boastful tee that totally makes us want to drive seven hours to Oriskany Falls, New York, for a pie at Mario’s Pizzeria. Trust us, it’s the best pizza in the world.
Taco Eclipse of the Heart
Bonnie Tyler would surely approve of this clever design, which pays homage to her 1983 hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Because how could you hate a taco, especially one that looks this adorably sheepish? You just can’t.
The town that made cheesesteaks, hoagies, soft pretzels, and wooder (pronounced “water” by non-Philadelphians) ice famous gets a wearable tribute. Whether you’re born and bred in the City of Brotherly Love or just visiting, it’s a worthy addition to your closet.
Now that we’ve seen this t-shirt, we totally want to have a cake dealer on speed dial. How amazing would it be to press a button and have someone show up at your house to give you a sugar fix? We’ll take a carrot, a red velvet, and a black forest. And you might as well throw in a blackout cake, too, because we’re binging this weekend.
Minions rule. The Velvet Underground & Nico rules. Therefore, this t-shirt totally rules.
Do you wear your stomach on your sleeve, so to speak? Let us know what appetizing apparel you’d flash here or over on Facebook, G+, or Twitter. And then book a table at a restaurant near you to flaunt your foodie fashion.
