Film & TV: Favorite Fictional Food & Drink?
Duff Beer - Simpsons
Cheezy Poofs - South Park
Shimmer ("It's a floor wax AND a dessert topping!") - Sat. Nite Live Season 1
Krusty Burger - Simpsons
Chintzy Pop Popcorn - Simpsons
Buzz Cola - Simpsons
Squishee (made at the Quik-E-Mart, flavors such as raita, chutney, blue, & wheatgrass) - Simpsons
My theme is FICTIONAL food & drink items; in other words they don't exist in the "real" world. They were concocted by a movie or TV show.
Hedgehog flavored crisps (someone in the UK created these as a hoax in the '80's and I love the concept, seeing as there are already such wierd flavors as 'prawn cocktail' and 'roast chicken')
Old Shoggoth Ale (Neil Gaiman in one of his short stories)
I couldn't think of anything on my own, so after a little research:
- Slurm, the very addictive bright green drink from Futurama (aka butt juice from a certain species of talking slugs)
- Scooby Snacks. Even though it's a doggy treat, they had to be awesome if Scooby was always willingly to chase after ghosts, bigfoot, etc. just to get some.
Bachelor Chow (Now with Flavor!)
Slurm (the most ubiquitous carbonated beverage in the known galaxy - you don't WANT to know what they make it from...trust me.)
Popplers (the crunchy, tasty snackfood that will tax your conscience, and might just get YOU eaten!)
All from "Futurama"
Breen (Every sentient race, according to G'Kar, has food resembling Swedish meatballs. The Narn call it "breen.")
Jovian Sunspot (originated from the Zeus bar on the Io Transfer Station.)
Both from "Babylon 5"
And last, but definitely Not Least,
the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster (the effect of one "is like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.")
from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".
Brontosaurus Burgers – Flintstones
More from Star Trek - Saurian Brandy, Snail Juice, Blood Wine, Tranja
Haggis – oh, wait that’s real ;-)
I would say most of the candy on the Hogwart's Express from the Harry Potter Series
- chocolate frogs that hop
- Bertie Bott's jelly beans (vomit flavor - blech!)
Simpsons Breakfast food - Krusty Flakes, Krust-Os & Milhouse likes Vaseline on toast
Simpson dinner - Firehouse Ned's Fire Alarm Chile
And the best IMHO -
Anything shown in the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"

Soma-Brave New World
...aaaand I've just outed myself as a GIANT GEEK :)
Forget what it was called, but the loved the Simpsons episide with "Gum and Nuts, Together at Last!"
i can't believe no one has mentioned "chocolate salty balls" from South Park yet. i don't even watch the show and it was one of the first things that came to mind.
i did a quick Google search and turned up quite a few web pages dedicated to this topic. here are some of them:
That three course meal gum in Willy Wonka...it sounds so magical! Of course I'll prefer it WITHOUT the side effect of turning into a blueberry.
The muffin from Wonderfalls, yes I know, sounds mundane but they're like diet muffins and someone on the show lost weight even though he ate 15 of them! And the taste good! NOTHING will ever be as fictional as that!
Do the red and blue pill from "The Matrix" count?
(nerding out with all the other Simpsons, Futurama and Monty Python fans in this thread)
I think Popplers should have been named "Taste-sicles".
Simpsons: The ceiling waffle that Homer mistook for God ("Mmm...sacrilicious"). Does that count, too?
ETA: There was a commercial on SNL for this Hamburger Helper-type kit that added antibacterial stuff to rotten meat before eating, in the late 90s. Anyone remember the name of the fake product?
