How many times have you watched a movie or a tv show and felt the need to eat what the characters were eating?

Sometimes when I'm watching something and someone starts a toast I run for wine.

It's like a switch turns on in my brain.

I've been watching things while deciding dinner plans and the next thing you know, the characters will pull into a restaurant and boom, I'm on my way.

Even the fictional in-world foods that aren't real can look enticing.

There are plenty of space movies where the feast looked tasty.

Let's be open to new delicacies.

Redditor SquietART wanted to discuss all the menu opulence that has never been realized. So they asked:

"What fictional food did you always want to try?"

I want the potion from 'Death Becomes Her', for a myriad of reasons. Even with the consequences it still looks like a refreshing libation.


The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy GIFGiphy

"A Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster."


"There used to be a bar in Ottawa, Canada called Zaphod's that served them. Was actually pretty damn good, I miss that place."


“power bar”

"Lembas bread."


"I always figured lembas bread was like the protein bar of middle earth. I remember going through the mountains in Kosovo, so hungry, ate a 'power bar' (?) and could swear I could feel the nutrients being absorbed. They’d be good at first, but if you ate nothing but for a few days, you’d be sick of them."



"The sodas in Fallout."


"Actually all of the sodas in Fallout including the Sunsets from New Vegas."


"You can still drink sarsaparilla. I don’t know any brands but you can find a recipe online pretty easy Helps with syphilis."


The Feast

"The feast from Hook."


"This was my first thought. As a child I always wanted to be apart of that feast... lol."


"All those colors had my mouth dripping as a kid."


"I saw a tiktok last week of a group of friends recreating it in their backyard, food fight included."

"The Beauty and the Beast 'Be Our Guest' feast."


"My sister and I once cooked this for our family. It's fantastic as a themed mesh."


I'd want my plates and utensils to sing and dance as well or it's a no go.

Feed ME!

"Those big damn sandwiches from Scooby-Doo."


All of it...

"Pretty much all the food from Ghibli films."


"A lot of that food is real though! Sophie grills up eggs and thick-cut bacon in Howl’s Moving Castle; the soot sprites are eating konpeito in Spirited Away; the boy’s mom in Ponyo makes the kids instant ramen."

"And for a touch of real suffering, you can pick up a tin of Sakuma Drops just like the one Setsuko loves. They even sold a Grave of the Fireflies commemorative edition of the Sakuma Drops, which was too much for me. I can’t even look at that candy tin without thinking about that movie."


Make It!


"So weird but the rice porridge egg thing Mushu makes Mulan for breaky."


"This is a real dish called congee and is ridiculously comforting and easy to make!"


Wizard Treats

"Some of the foods in Harry Potter sounds delicious."


"Butter beer is delicious for two sips and then it just makes you sick lol... They have it at universal in So-Cal, I had to toss the rest of the drink."


"The hypersweet stuff that's like cream soda mixed with butter caramel flavoring? Or buttered beer, the super old drink that was the reason kings were so fat? Cuz yea either way those drinks are good for 2 sips before you gotta toss it." ~ completelytrustworth


"Kronk's Spinach Puffs from Emperor's New Groove."


The Mush...

"Okay this may be a little weird and unconventional but tubby custard and tubby toast from the teletubbies. I remember being so curious as to what they tasted like as a child, even though I now know that the custard was really just mashed potato with food coloring."


Now I'm starving. Imma try some of these.
