“TO DO LIST: Make vanilla pudding. Put in mayo jar. Eat in public” was posted on the website Grouchy Rabbit on June 29, 2011. The prank has been printed on several images.

Carefully clean out a mayonnaise jar after it has been used up. Put some vanilla pudding or yogurt into the jar instead. Then make sure someone is watching when you proceed to spoon it up and eat it.

April 2016, Highlights for Children, “Easy April Foolery” by Allison Kane, pg. 32:
Save an empty mayonnaise jar and fill it with vanilla pudding. Wait until there are people around, then scoop some of the pudding from the jar into a bowl and dig in. Pretend not to notice the horrified looks from your audience.
