December 6, 2015: The Fictional Food Of My Youth I Always Wanted To Try!


I know, they’re dog treats – but not just any old dog treats.  Given the way they set Scooby off every time he was offered one, they must have been super-tasty.  Also addictive.  Yeah, who are we kidding.  They were probably laced with some illicit substances as well.  But no doubt delicious illicit substances.

Sure, I’ve enjoyed plenty of coconut cream pies in my day, but I suspect none hold a candle to THE most spectacular cream pie of all – the one Mary Ann made on Gilligan’s Island.

The ultimate burger straight outta Bedrock.  And paleo friendly!

Way back, before I discovered Amedei chuao or porcelana, there was this gold standard chocolate bar I desperately wanted to get my hands on when I was a kid.  The golden ticket would’ve been nice, but I would’ve been perfectly happy with a Wonka bar.

Starts with tomato soup, segues into roast beef with baked potato, and ends with blueberry pie.

I’d probably eat them anywhere, with anyone.

  1. Nestle actually used to make Wonka bars, not sure if they made their way to Canada or not. Haven’t seen them in years, wonder if they still make them?

  2. I always figured Shaggy was into the Scooby Snacks because he was already in the munchie mode.

    Did you know we have a chocolate factory right here in NB less and 1.5 hours away from me, and I’ve never been for a visit?

    After that movie, it always seemed too dangerous. Also, that reminds me, I need to get some chicken bones for Christmas!


    *ponders if that is some kind of euphemism*

  3. No, I can’t really say I ever wanted to eat any food from my favorite TV shows. Except, I always wanted to have dinner with the Cartwrights on Bonanza. Since Hoss was always so happy eating Hop Sing’s cooking, that kind of made me want some of it too.

  4. (Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory did look pretty good…like that chocolate river.)

  5. what?! – YOU, the Real-Life “Mikey” who will EAT just about *ANYTHING*, didn’t include SOYLENT-GREEN to the List??!! oh! The humanity of it all!

  6. Oooooh nice….. Although the Brontosaurus burger has a bread bun which makes it paleo unfriendly.

    I was always curious about Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches.

    Cheers, Chev

  7. Yes, on all those foods! I could see you gobbling that burger. 😉

    Whenever I cook with Ghirardelli chocolate, some of it comes in a gold foil wrapper. That’s when I burst out singing “I’ve got the golden ticket”. Why yes, my son is embarrassed by me. 😉

    bambamfans: They don’t sell peanut butter there? If not, what about almond butter? Almond butter and jelly is pretty good too! Well, I’ve always been curious about vegemite! 🙂

  8. Sorry I haven’t been posting lately. Been busy with my videos and other stuff. That coconut crème pie looks delicious. I don’t know if I’d want to eat a Scooby Snack, but it reminds me of the cookies I give to Savvy. She goes crazy, jumping in the air, howling like malamutes always do, every time I ask her if she wants one. 🙂

  9. Ganymede – Soylent Green! BWAHAHAHA! Awesome!

    FYI – Peanut butter is an American product that is not available everywhere (in stores), but I believe you can order it online and have it shipped to you. Just like Tim Tams are strictly Australian, but are not exported at all. I have a friend in Sydney, and whenever she travels to the US, she literally brings one suitcase full of Tim Tams for everyone she visits. I’ve heard Vegemite’s taste described and it doesn’t sound appealing to me.

  10. I was once quite smitten about a man named Sam.
    He seemed to absolutely adore it when I recited the rhyme:
    I love you more than green eggs n ham.
    I love you more, Sam I am.

    But then I consumed Wonka’s 3 course chewing gum
    became a large blueberry. Along came the Oompa loopa’s

    And BAM!!!!!!!!!

    Smash n Splash! And it was goodbye Sam! 😀

  11. The Wonka Bar that Nestle used to make was fantastic! The chocolate was really flavorful, creamy, and light, but it also had some crunchy bits in it, like a Crunch bar but smaller and lighter. It was a great treat all around. They were usually under a buck, too!

    Probably nothing like we all imagined what a TRUE Wonka bar would be like, but still great!

  12. My own fictional food (as in, food I learned of from fiction) wish list:

    Turkish delight from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. So good it corrupted Edmund almost instantaneously! I soooooo wanted to try it as a kid, but I had no idea what it was or where to get some. Then, when I grew up and moved to Glendale, CA, home to a tremendously large Armenian community, Turkish delight was in any independent convenience store. I was so excited to try it, finally! And then I tasted it and was like, “This is it? THIS is what Edmund got all orgasmic for?” What a let-down.

    I also always wanted to try Baked Alaska. I think this was in a book called “Felicia the Critic”. Or maybe “Blubber” by Judy Blume. (One of the two. I read them at the same time in my life, so I can’t parse one from the other.) I still haven’t had Baked Alaska, but at least I know what it is now. There was no description in the book; the author just assumed you knew what it was and knew that it was indescribably delicious.

    Romulan Ale!!! Doesn’t everyone want to try that? When my friend attended bartending school (purely for the fun of it; he just wanted to learn to make drinks for his own entertaining purposes), he started inventing his own concoctions, using me as his tester. Lucky me!!! He made me something with Midori that looked exactly like Romulan Ale and tasted so scrumptious that I can’t imagine the real Romulan Ale could ever be any better. I promptly named his new drink “Romulan Ale” and I feel like I’ve checked that one off my bucket list.

  13. DALLAS MARSHALL (@MrsTigercat) I bought a box of TimTams at Costco of all places, just last month! Pepperidge Farms also makes some, just around the holidays. Really hard to find…I used to stalk Target the week before Thanksgiving each year, just waiting for the delivery! If I was lucky, I’d run into the guy and he;d let me know when they were coming.

  14. @bambamfans … there is peanut butter and then there’s good peanut butter. A decent PBJ needs nice soft bread, quality fresh peanut butter, and grape jelly. Strawberry jam is acceptable, but grape jelly is the standard. And our jelly is not gelatin, that’s Jell-o. So a PBJ is a nice mix of sweet and savory. Other jams or preserves and bacon are just getting fancy (I like raspberry best). My husband likes cheese on his, the barbarian.

    And then there’s the creamy vs. chunky debate. Also the white bread vs. wheat. Do you cut off the crusts? Cut in half horizontally, or on the diagonal?

    I was in London, and there was a sandwich food wagon. They made peanut butter sandwiches, but would not put jam on it for me. Dude, I’m American, I know my peanut butter!

  15. Next time I’m at Walmart, I will look for a Wonka bar. Could swear I saw them there.

    You were a foodie in the making growing up. Me? Not so much. I don’t think I’ve ever said in my life, “I wonder what that tastes like.” Because the times I have thought it in my head and actually tried something, I lived to regret it. And that became a conditioned behavior. My mother cooked a lot but was not a great cook. We lived on food stamps so I am sure she did the best she could with the quality of food she could buy but my favorite places to eat were at school with school lunches and at houses of my friends.
