Chrissy Teigen loves food—clearly, considering she has a bestselling cookbook, Cravings, and posts her recipes on Instagram about every other second. But even she has foods she can’t stand. And no, she’s not talking about brussels sprouts or anchovies, but rather, the super-photogenic Instagram foods that look cool online, but taste like shit IRL.

Specifically, Teigen, 31, hates the highly Instagrammable—but arguably obnoxious—unicorn food trend. (Starbucks lovers, you know the one.) Though the saccharine, splashy fad has exploded on social media, Teigen wouldn’t be caught dead slurping a unicorn Frappuccino or digging into a dish with more colors than the rainbow.

“The unicorn burrito with cotton candy? That’s not a burrito. That’s a tortilla filled with cotton candy and jelly on it,” she recently told People. “I’m just not understanding a lot of things in the food world and I feel like it’s all about the Instagram now.”

Teigen’s suggestion for dishes that’ll reel in the likes: Good old-fashioned food that looks good and tastes better. “I mean, I’m old school in the way where I’m like just serve good food and people will come to it,” she said. “Now everyone feels like they need a gimmick and you really don’t—just make good, hearty beautiful food.”

However, the “Lip Sync Battle” co-host does have one dish that she thinks deserves more attention, though it’s probably not one that you’ll expect. “I do feel like meat pies haven’t taken off enough in the United States,”she said. “Everywhere else they appreciate a good meat pie, like at the gas station you get a meat pie. They’re so easy to hold, so delicious. Ugh, I love them.”

There you have it, folks. The Queen of the Internet has blessed us with our next food trend—meat pies. Just don’t go getting any ideas about topping your meat pies with cotton candy or rainbow sprinkles. If the unicorn food fad was already getting stale, Teigen’s officially just killed it.
