    Default What Fictional Foods Do You Wish Were Real?

    What fictional foods would you like to eat?

    I'd like a bottle of the soft drink Charlie had in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.


    The Houston Press put together a slideshow of twenty foods from TV, movies, and literature that they wish really existed. Entries include Romulan Ale from Star Trek, Harry Potter's Butterbeer, and the "tomacco" plant from The Simpsons (an addictive hybrid of tomato and tobacco).

    I'd add in the fizzy drink Frobscottle, from Roald Dahl's book The BFG—tasting "of vanilla and cream, with just the faintest trace of raspberries on the edge of the flavour." And coolest of all, the bubbles go downwards. What fictional foods would you like to eat?

    Hah! As soon as I saw the title I was thinking of that drink in the BFG! I do not want to try the snozzcumbers though, of course!

    The Simpsons also had "cool ranch soda," which sounds atrocious. Duff Blue ("Catch the peppermint wave!") might work, if the ABV is high enough.
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"

    This is only under the assumption that we could create our own: It would be an edible substance that works kind of in the way some unedible substances cause cancer. The exception is this substance would be harmless. It would work in the way that asbestos does when ingested in the lungs. This would be ingested by the stomach. The difference is, as it keeps breaking down like asbestos, it eventually dissolves. An edible asbestos would work but it never stops breaking down nor disolve. So, after eating this substance, it keeps breaking down to a point. Until this point is reached, a person is satisfied for what could be up to a week or so. Don't really have a name for it, we'll just call it artificially
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Still going through the slide show, but I would love for lembas bread to be real. Talk about an energy bar. There are so many times when I either don't want to take time to eat because I'm engrossed in something, or when I have to eat on the run ... lembas bread would be perfect.

    Edit: Butterbeer sounds delicious, too. Lembas bread with butterbeer to wash it down = fictional food heaven.
