brocha hints
... Amongst packaged kosher foods, a few hechshers are accompanied by a textual hint about the appropriate brocha which should be recited before eating the food inside the package.

 
Only a few blessings are shown here. You should be able to find many more in your siddur where they may be indexed on the contents page under the headings of "Blessings Over Food" or "Blessings [or Benedictions] on Various Occasions."
 
See our Bibliography page for book details:
A Practical Guide To Our Daily Brochos (brocha rishona: blessings before eating),
Halachos Of K'zayis (brocha acharona: blessings after eating).
 
 
Here, on the subject of reciting a brocha before eating, is a joke which was published by the Cape Town Hebrew Congregation in its e-mail newsletter for Shabbat Miketz, 5774/2013:
TEACHER: Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say a prayer before eating?
SIMON: No sir, I don’t have to because my Mom is a very good cook.
