“What’s the scariest dessert?"/"Terrormisu.”

The Italian dessert “tiramisu” sometimes becomes “terrormisu” (terror + tiramisu) for Halloween. “Terror-Misu” was printed in the Los Angeles (CA) Times on May 30, 1996.

“Terrormisu” is also the name of a Super Mario video game character.

“Q. What is Osama Bin Laden’s favourite dessert? A. Terrormisu” was posted on Twitter on July 2, 2009. “Terrormisu. The scariest dessert in the world” was posted on Twitter on June 1, 2013.


Wikipedia: Tiramisu
Tiramisu (from the Italian language, spelled tiramisù [tiramiˈsu], meaning “pick me up”, “cheer me up” or “lift me up") is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian custard dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. Its origins are often disputed among Italian regions such as Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, and others.

Super Mario Wiki
Terrormisu (also known by her false name Tiaramisu) is an ancient demon who surpasses Count Cannoli as the main antagonist of Wario: Master of Disguise and is also the game’s final boss. Her name is derived from “tiramisu”, an Italian dessert.

30 May 1996, Los Angeles (CA) Times, “Drop-Dead Yummy” by Barbara Hansen, pg. H2, col. 1:
And think of the possibilities for Halloween. Who’d want candied apples when they can have Hack and Chop Layer Cake, Terror-Misu, or Fatally FUdge Brownies?
