“The food pyramid is a ‘pyramid’ not ‘triangle,’ so what’s on the other sides?”

The “food pyramid” is a triangular diagram of suggested food servings. However a pyramid has at least two other sides, plus a side that is the base.

“It’s the food PYRAMID right? So...what’s on the other two sides?? I mean it’s not the food TRIANGLE! Brand new food groups yet undiscovered!” was posted on Twitter on August 20, 2010. “We only see one face of the food pyramid. what delicious foods are they hiding on the other two sides” was posted on Twitter on October 8, 2015. “Since it’s not called the food triangle I’ve always wondered what’s on the other three sides of the food pyramid” was posted on Twitter on October 14, 2015.

Wikipedia: Food pyramid (nutrition)
A food pyramid or diet pyramid is a triangular diagram representing the optimal number of servings to be eaten each day from each of the basic food groups. The first pyramid was published in Sweden in 1974. The 1992 pyramid introduced by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) was called the “Food Guide Pyramid”. It was updated in 2005, and then it was replaced by MyPlate in 2011.

Since it’s not called the food triangle I’ve always wondered what’s on the other three sides of the food pyramid.

The fact that they call it the Food Pyramid and not Food Triangle implies it has at least two other sides.  So maybe this much taffy is OK
