Vote up the fictional foods that you'd like to take a second serving of.

One of the most fascinating and memorable parts of any movie or television show is the food. While fictional delicacies sometimes resemble things we may eat on a daily basis, other times they're so outlandish and unexpected that we can't help but wonder what we're missing. Since food is such an integral part of our day-to-day lives, learning about the food of a fictional universe makes that universe appear more grounded and believable. While there is some disgusting fictional food out there, for every serving of maggoty haggis in the Harry Potter series, there is also a chocolate frog or warm mug of butterbeer. 

A movie or TV show's cuisine is essential for worldbuilding and overall believability and the best foods from movies, TV shows, or books truly have a presence. Whether it's science fiction food perfected by future technologies or a chain beloved in a fictional universe, fans can't help but drool over certain imaginary cuisines. What SpongeBob fan hasn't wanted to try a krabby patty and how can anyone read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and not be curious to taste that enchanted Turkish delight? These and other delicious looking foods are bound to make readers and watchers hungry, but what are truly the best fictional foods? 

Below, you'll find some tasty fare you wish existed, so cast your vote for the fictional foods you want to eat!

    Hot Chocolate

    From: The Polar Express

    While it’s pretty simple to make hot chocolate in real life, something about the over-the-top musical number performed by the servers in The Polar Express makes it seem all the more delicious.
