This topic is about foods, from fictional films and books, that don’t exist. Here is a list of them that I would like to try.
Harry Potter: Butter Beer Even though the Butter Beer is based on an actual recipe, I would like to know what the Harry Potter version tastes like. On Google it was revealed that one of the original recipes for butter beer was simply warmed beer with melted butter added. Another Harry Potter favorite of mine is Pumpkin Juice. There are several videos I’ve seen of kids sampling on pumpkin pulp and/or rinds while carving Halloween Jack ‘O Laterns. Shortly after, they throw it up. So why is it that Harry Potter and his friends can drink Pumpkin Juice easily, as if it were water? There might be a spell or magical element added to make it more edible. Or it could be available without pulp, like orange juice. A Harry Potter candy I would like to try is the Chocolate Frog. The magical moving card that comes with it, is one of the main reasons I would like to get a Chocolate Frog. I do have some problems with the fact that the frogs actually move and look alive. The frogs would make cool pets. I wonder if they come with or without nuts. If they do come with nuts, I wonder if they’re placed to look like organs.
These foods are available at the Harry Potter Theme Park that’s in Orlando Florida, but some foods might be more realistic than others. For example, it would be easy to make a recipe for non-moving Butter Beer or non-magical Every Flavour Beans, than a really moving Chocolate Frog. And the card is probably holographic. I would still like to try these foods, however.
Spongebob: Krabby Patties The toppings are lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, a secret patty formula and sometimes cheese. I wonder what they taste like because the recipe for them is a secret. It is not a crab cake. The owner of the restaurant (Krusty Krab) is a crab. What kind of a sicko would he be to make his burgers out of crab?!!? Another weird thing is that they call it a “formula” not a “recipe”, making me wonder what goes in it.
Flintstones: Bronto Burger In a land full of dinosaurs, its no wonder that the food on the Flintstones is gigantic (like a car-tipping rack of ribs). It makes me ponder why Fred isn’t even bigger than he is, like dinosaur sized. Despite it’s enormous size, its light enough to hold like a normal sized burger. More or less. Just with your arms spread out wider. Dinosaur meat probably tastes different from alligator meat because paleotologists think that dinosaurs were warm blooded. But it would also taste different than say, pork, because the dinosaurs were reptiles.
Star Trek: Klingon Gagh Despite the fact Klingons find it tougher (as in more warrior-like) )to eat Gagh live, I ain’t having that stuff squirming in my stomach. An easier Star Trek choice, would have been Vulcan Plomeek Soup. It was mentioned on an episode, but never actually shown. Vulcans don’t care about being warriors, so they don’t feel the need to eat yucko food. Gagh might taste like squid, because it looks like tentacles. Why is Romulan Ale blue? Maybe they went to Earth and stole the recipe for Gatorade.
