Foodies Share The Fictional Food They Most Wish Were Real

We have all had some level of attraction to those delicious looking cartoon foods, or a scrumptious sounding meal from another world in a fictional book. Sometimes the food is mouthwatering and irresistible, leaving us fantasizing about how it would taste and smell. We only wish we could chow down on these fictional foods for real.

CaniborrowaThrillho asks:

If you could eat any fictional meal or food item, what would it be?

Try not to drool over this fictional food list.

You know it's good when reading starves you

Probably anything described in the Redwall books at one of their feasts. G*those pages made me f hungry.

This is an obvious choice

A krabby patty.

Bread is always the correct answer

Lembas bread from LOTR

Anime food is the best

Any meal from a Ghibli movie. I know I can get/make it irl but it just looks so d* good in the movies. I feel like I could get a master chef to recreate those meals and it still wouldn't be as good.

But could you finish the whole thing?

I want to be able to bite into the peach from James and the Giant Peach.

Anything with that much color must be delicious

The meal from Hook always looked delicious when I was a kid.

When it looks so good you don't care that it's animal food

I wish I could try some of the food from neopets! The food from faerieland in particular

Who wouldn't want magic food

Pretty much any candy described in Harry Potter. Except for that love potion crap. Who wouldn't want a chocolate frog that could hop?

For the salad lovers out there

Tree Stars from The Land Before Time. I mean, I guess that's not completely fictional since, y'know, leaves are real. But I've never seen a leaf look that droolworthy in real life.

An excellent source of protein

The bugs in the lion king

They look... tasty for some reason

A vegetarian meat option

The roast beef dinner gum from Wonka. I'd prefer the kind that doesn't turn me into a blueberry but c'est la vie.

But does it get you drunk?

Butterbeer!! It sounds like it would taste so good and be so cozy on a cold day!

It must taste perfect

That "Perfect Candy" made by Jimmy Neutron

Yes to the magical feasts

I want the school meals from Harry Potter. Doesn't have to be the big celebratory feasts, even a normal meal would be fine. As much as you want, everything you could want, and it appears and cleans itself up.

Welcome to the good burger home of the good burger can I take your order

Good burger w/ sauce

Pizza that turtles are eating has to be something special

I always wanted to try the cheesy pizza the ninja turtles eat ????

Nothing makes the mouth water more than a porg

That Spit-Roasted porg Chewie was about to chow down on in The Last Jedi looked delicious

A food that gives you another life

a 1up mushroom

Don't believe me, ask the dishes!

The grey stuff from beauty and the beast

We can't forget one of the greatest franchises

Bob's Burgers, any of them, they all, they pretty much all sound amazing.

Lifehacks, if applied properly, can really change the course of a single household chore.

Chores can really be such a pain to take care of, and nobody wants to do it. But with a little life hack under your belt, you might be able to turn chore time into something a little fun.

u/rat-avec-london asked:

What is a lifehack that seems fake, but is a true lifesaver?

Here were some of those answers.


My Finger, The Glass

If your ring gets stuck on your finger windex will slide it right off. Worked at a jewelry store for five plus years.

You can also use any oil (cooking, automotive... anything).

You can also reduce the size of your hand (and finger) by holding it up in the air. Chilling your hand in cold water THEN holding it up in the air for a couple minutes whilst rubbing oil &/or dishwashing fluids in there... trifecta of ring removal.

Should work on anyone that just stole Sauron's prize - though biting it off also works, i suppose.

SageSilinous

Multiple Uses

Use shaving cream as anti-fog. I used it on the inside of my motorcycle visor. Smear it on, let it dry, then rinse off and dry. It also works for bathroom mirrors. You can use it on a small spot so you can still see when you get out of the shower.

Shaving cream also removes the smell of urine. If you ever have to take care of someone who is old and/or sick and who wets the bed, a little shaving cream on a rag wiped over their buttocks after they are thoroughly cleaned up helps them really smell clean again.

It's a bit of a sad tip, I know, but you never know when you might end up caring for someone who needs help with things like this. Nobody wants to smell. A dab of shaving cream to restore a bit of dignity? Priceless.

Gen-Jinjur

Pretty Important For Stage Actors

Every male should know this. If you want to get rid of an awkward boner flex any muscle in your body maybe an arm. For a minute. The blood will rush to that muscle and away from your penis. Crisis averted.

These life hacks really don't seem real at all, but if you can swear by them, they can save your life.

Obligatory Poop Hack

I saw a comment on one of these kinda threads that recommended gently rocking back and forth while pooping. I've never had any problems in the bathroom, but I happened to be sitting on the toilet when I read the comment so I decided to give it a test drive. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and effortless the whole experience was and I haven't gone back to my old stationary technique since. As a bonus, #1 and #2 now require the same amount of time in the bathroom!

It's The Alcohol

If you have funky armpits and need to fix them fast, use hand sanitiser. I figured this out years ago when I remembered that the smell comes from bacteria reactions - which antibacterial hand gel kills stone dead. Instant results and the medical smell lasts only a minute. Don't do this routinely though as it's delicate skin.

But Hopefully It's Just A Playing Puppy

True lifesaver: if you are ever attacked by a dog, push your forearm INTO the bite. This pries the jaws apart and prevents them from clamping down. If a dog is attacking you, the best thing you can do is offer your forearm, push as far back as possible, and then grab the dog by the scruff of its neck with your other hand to hold it. The dog is now functionally muzzled and you have control of its head. The sooner and harder you push into the bite, the less damage the bite will do.

IAlbatross

Get It Off Anything

That rubbing alcohol removes chewing gum.

I'd go through a 20 layer deep marketing funnel to get to that tip because it really does work.

Also wow! Thank you for all of the awards nice Redditors. I completely forgot I left this comment and came back and my notifications had blown up.

omgIamafraidofreddit

And previously impossible situations will give way at long last.

Sayonara Capsaicin

Rubbing vegetable oil (or any cooking oil) on your hands after you cut up jalapeños or other hot peppers. It gets rid of the awfulness that would normally be left on your hands from the peppers. I rub my hands with oil and then wash it off with dish soap. I can totally remove my contacts after doing this. It's crazy how well this works.

PaulRuddsButthole

Crying Crying

Put your onion in the freezer for 10 minutes before chopping it. It freezes the juices just enough to slow down the process of it turning in to a gas, giving you a few minutes to chop the onion without tears. I learnt this tip from a kid's science show years ago and I haven't had to deal with onion tears since. So many people don't believe me, and then are genuinely surprised when it works.

Just A Quick Little Base

The cheapest, most effective, and safest insecticide against roaches (especially those huge "water bug" roaches that we have in the South) is a spray bottle of mostly water with just a little liquid dish soap in it.

Shake the bottle & get the water a little foamy, then spray the roaches. They will run, scrabble, and attempt escape, of course, but they will die. The soap film suffocates them faster than any chemicals will.

A friend told me about this, & I thought she was nuts, but I tried it & it works amazingly well. Plus it's very easy to clean up and safe around food (not that you want to spray soapy water ON your food).

Incorporating any of these lifehacks into your home may make a big difference. You'll never want to turn back.

Or you will, whatever. But they're worth a try!

I'm not much of a gamer, but I have quite a few friends who are. I never fail to be unnerved by some of the stories they share about toxic personalities who give the gamer community a bad name. Did you know for example that women often have to deal with misogyny and abuse while playing online? Blatant sexism can turn something as simple as enjoying a videogame into an emotional minefield for women.

After Redditor TerribleVanilla3768 asked the online community, "Gamers of Reddit, what's the creepiest or scariest thing you've ever heard someone say into their mic?" people shared their stories.

As horrifying as the Covid-19 pandemic has been, I can't help but marvel at the people who got through a bad bout of the virus and are still here with us today. The stories I have heard have unnerved me: Quite a few people I know honestly thought they were going to die before things got better. (That's the crazy thing about this virus––you could feel like hell for a while only to experience a major turn-around within 24 hours.)

After Redditor Rares asked the online community, "What is the worst 'I'm gonna die' situation you've been through? people shared their stories.

It isn't always the case, but for many couples who go on to become married partners, there was a moment when it became clear and obvious that the other was their soulmate.
