This is not make up, but oww well.

Todd Wilbur has the secret ingredients in your favourite takeaway food. It began when Todd received a chain letter widely circulated in the 80s, which claimed to hold the recipe for Mrs Field's chocolate chip cookies.

The recipe turned out to be a fake but Todd decided to see if he could figure out what was in the cookies and recreate the recipe himself. He succeeded. He then went on to successfully recreate a Big Mac, a Snickers bar and hundreds of other major brand name foods.

In 1993, he released his first book, Top Secret Recipes. He had sent it to 30 publishers, and 5 came back with offers.

What to do the fast food chains think of him cracking their secret codes? Thankfully, none of the big corporations have tried to put a stop to what he’s doing. Todd thinks they’re happy with the publicity his books give them.

KFC even sponsored his 7th book tour!
