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.

  1. Gabagool-The Soprano's
    Does Ipicac (Family Guy) qualify as a drink? I love that episode!

    1. re: catrn

      Isn't ipicac what you give to make someone throw up?
      Gabagool is capicola.
      Those aren't fictional.

    2. 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)

      1. 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.

        1. 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 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".

              Don't forget Spoo and Flarn, also from Babylon 5
              The definition of Spoo is a great read, even if you know nothing about Babylon 5:
              "Spoo ranching is one of the least regarded professions known."
              And from Star Trek - Romulan Ale

                Also from Star Trek - Ga'ak (or however you spell it) the Klingon food.

                1. re: Philly Ray

                  ALSO from Star Trek:

                  Plomeek Soup, from Vulcan
                  Rokeg Blood Pie, a Kilingon not-so-delicacy

                  1. re: Philly Ray

                    That would be Gagh, a dish of (usually live) serpent eels
