Imagine your favourite shows and all the food you’ll never get to eat. I’ve compiled some amazing foods from seven shows I bet you were obsessed with at some point.

Willy Wonka’s chocolate

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was a legendary movie and if you haven’t watched it, then at least you must have heard the cool millennials talk about it. Yeah, I’m one of the cool kids and the Willy Wonka Chocolate factory is the Heaven I once wanted to go to when I die. A part of me still hopes that there’s a chance.

Scooby Snacks

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy were the OG foodies of all time. They ate a bunch of food, but the one thing I wished I could jump into the TV to taste was the Scooby snack. Didn’t you also want to know why Shaggy was so crazy about dog treats?

Turkish delight from The Chronicles of Narnia

Seeing a talking lion from a mystical closet play a father figure was one of the high points of my childhood. I really want to know what made Edmund Pevensie ready to sell his birthright for white-coated sweets from a white witch.

Direwolf bread from Game of Thrones

There wasn’t much to see about Hot Pie, the baker at the inn. But that bread? How did it make it look so perfect when I can barely draw straight lines with a ruler?

Krabby patties from SpongeBob

You can’t tell me you watched SpongeBob without wondering what a krabby patty tasted like. It should be everyone’s dream to live in a pineapple under the sea eating burgers made by a cranky crab.

Donkey’s famous waffles from Shrek

Imagine a talking donkey making you fluffy waffles when you’re having a bad day. 

Pizza balls from Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Beyond wanting to hitch a ride to any world where I’m definitely not Nigerian, I’d like to get a taste of the pizza balls America Chavez ate while she was trying to escape impending doom. Clearly, she had misplaced priorities but I would too if I saw tiny cheesy pepperoni pizza balls.

Eggos from Stranger Things

Eggos are basically frozen waffles from the 1980s. And for someone who knew very little about the real world before escaping her psycho father, El has been obsessed with eggos since season one of Stranger Things and I need to understand why.
