“Criminalized Onions” (“caramelized” mistake)

“Caramelized onions” are sometimes mistakenly described as “criminalized onions.” “Santi just called caramelized onions “criminalized onions” #ShitSantiSays” was posted on Twitter by Zach Miller on November 7, 2013. “Caramelized or criminalized?” was posted on Twitter by Edwin Kartowidjojo on January 21, 2018.
   
“Overcriminalization has gone too far” (“ROAST BEEF & CRIMINALIZED ONIONS” is shown printed on a packaged sandwich.—ed.) was posted on Twitter by tedfrank on September 15, 2020. “It/s 2020. Time to legalize onion relish” was added on Facebook by “im not right in the head.com” on September 22, 2020.
   
 
Wikipedia: Caramelization
Caramelization is the browning of sugar, a process used extensively in cooking for the resulting sweet nutty flavor and brown color. The brown colors are produced by three groups of polymers: caramelans (C24H36O18), caramelens (C36H50O25), and caramelins (C125H188O80). As the process occurs, volatile chemicals such as diacetyl are released, producing the characteristic caramel flavor.
