While the Super Bowl might be the biggest sporting event in America, there’s no bigger athletic event in the world than the Olympic Games save maybe the FIFA World Cup. But the US is more or less interested in the women’s tournament while the rest of the world would rather watch the men’s. This year we have the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil which is turning out to be kind of a shit hole with Zika, crime, pollution, corruption, and well, it’s a mess. A real mess. You kind of wish it was like 2012 when they had it in London. Oh, wait now they have the Brexit going on which really is screwing everything up. And their Prime Minister has resigned. Seriously, Brits, the the hell were you guys thinking? Or perhaps like the Winter Olympics back in Sochi during 2014. Oh, I forgot, their track team’s been banned for steroid use and there’s been a major cover up over doping there. Why am I not surprised? Because sports is full of it. Nevertheless, people have a tendency to hold Olympic parties which is only fair since some people take this occasion more seriously than others. Yet chances are you’ll find plenty of Olympic themed treats on Pinterest if you know where to look. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a championship worthy assortment of Olympic treats.

 

  1. The sweetest thing about Sochi were these cookies.

However, since it has no tomato sauce and cheese, the term "pizza" is applied very loosely here. But at least it uses a different veggie for each ring.
