Food GIFs for Every Occasion

I think we can all agree that food is an important part of life. It’s how we mark special occasions and how we get through bad times. It’s how we connect with people and how we treat ourselves. So, just as there’s a food experience for each moment of our lives, I think there’s also a food GIF for every occasion, too. Here’s a few to get us started.

For when you bite off a bit more than you can chew:
