“Keto, schmeto,” says whoever recently decided to market a pillow on Amazon which is shaped like a large loaf of bread. On the list of things you may never need in your life but are somewhat curious about, this pillow probably has its spot earmarked.

Have you ever wanted nothing more than to sleep on or in something that’s designed to look like food? Are we harboring a carb craze deep within us that only comes out when we’re unconscious, hence these food-based sleeping apparatuses? What do the people at Amazon know about our sleeping or eating habits that result in things like this becoming the next big deal? Whatever momentum is behind this latest trend, those looking to become the next best things since sliced bread can now also purchase slippers that are designed to look like French baguettes. Now ask yourself, “Do I knead these things in my life?”
