THIS meal of egg and chips looks delicious, but it’s not what it seems.

It’s actually vanilla yoghurt, half a peach and a peeled apple cut into chip-shaped segments.

Reddit user dwimback cooked up the fake meal to trick their children on April Fools’ Day, and posted the image online.

The trick was met with a variety of reactions.

Fellow Reddit user whitepaddedwalls said: “While it does sound delicious, imagine biting in to that thinking it was eggs. That unexpected taste and texture would be a pretty big shock,” while Clashman320 added: “I put ketchup on my eggs so I could see this being a disaster.”

The good news is that it’s easily recreated. All you need is a half peach in a can (for the most realistic-looking ‘yolk’), vanilla yoghurt (although we suspect Greek natural yoghurt would be acceptable) and an apple.

Despite it being intended as a prank, a number of commenters felt that being served apple, yoghurt and peach would be more preferable than a greasy fried egg and chips.
