Fictional foods often look very appetizing, so much so that many people spend hours recreating dishes from popular movies and TV shows. On the other side of this coin, however, there is a plethora of unappealing fictional food that few people would ever volunteer to eat. These are foods that should never exist and hopefully will never come to fruition outside of their fictional universes.
These foods are often included in their respective mediums either for comedic purposes or to establish a dangerous, disgusting, or undesirable environment. As hunger is a universally shared human experience, a setting in which safe or enjoyable food is unavailable communicates the characters' struggles to the audience, thus helping them to empathize. Science fiction settings often make characters feel out of place via vile extraterrestrial eats. In shows full of anthropomorphic animals, viewers often cringe at what the critters call food. Whatever the reason, these are some truly gross fictional foods you would never want to ingest yourself.
Some of the worst foods from movies, television, and literature are listed below and range from the mysterious blue milk from Star Wars to the cannibalistic soylent green from the film of the same name. Vote on what you think is the most disgusting fictional food out there!
