9 Movie Food Moments We WISHED Were Real

Header for Film

The final Hunger Games franchise has just been released and we couldn’t be more excited. It got us thinking about food. As always, we think about food pretty much 98% of the time. But we also like movies. Very much. So here are our top movie food moments in some of the greatest films of our time…

1. The Chocolate River- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

While we pretty much wish everything in this film was real, the chocolate river really takes the biscuit. We would obviously ensure we were much better behaved than Augustus Gloop…

2. The Feast In The Great Hall– Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone (2001)

Every day, Harry, Hermione, Ron & co. ate like Kings. They probably had a magic spell or two up their sleeve to decrease their waistlines too…

3. The $5 Milkshake– Pulp Fiction (1994)

“That’s a pretty f***ing good milkshake” says Vincent Vega played by John Travolta. $5 these days is probably a steal for a milkshake and if it’s good enough for John Travolta, it’s good enough for us.

4. Krusty’s Klogger Pork Sandwich- The Simpsons Movie (2007)

This pork sandwich is marketed as very greasy and will probably give you the meat sweats, but we’d still like to give it a go. It’s triple layered with some serious lashings of bacon.

5. Raining Hamburgers- Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (2009)

When the weather takes a turn for the better and starts raining hamburgers?! How cool would that be? You’d have to constantly walk around with tomato sauce on your person at all times.

6. The Ratatouille- Ratatouille (2007)

Food critic Anton Ego is transported back in time to his childhood when he takes a bite of the ratatouille that Remy the rat cooks for him. We wonder what Ben would think of the same dish…?

7. Room Service Ice Cream- Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)

Kevin Mcallister rules the world. He takes his Dad’s credit card and has the best time roaming around New York. At the end of the day he calls for room service- what’s on the menu? Ice cream! He stays in bed as he digs into it. This guy knows how to roll.

8. Nostalgic Hot Chocolate- Chocolate (2000)

“It tastes like something I had as a child.” Says Judi Dench’s character Armande in the beautiful film Chocolate where an expert chocolatier wreaks havoc on a small village. Give us a cuppa too love!

9. Katniss Everdeen & The Suckling Pig- The Hunger Games 2012

Katniss has STYLE. Do you remember that moment? The members of the capitol are stuffing their faces as Katniss takes to the centre of the training room to prove her worth. To get her own back, she shoots arrow straight through the apple in the pigs mouth. We could do that too… definitely… and we WISH it was real.
