20 Fictional Foods & Drinks We Wish Were Real

The Everlasting Gobstopper. Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. Klingon bloodwine. Magical (and sometimes terrible) foods and beverages from literature and pop culture throughout the ages have always resonated with us. We dream of what they might taste like, look like, smell like. We relish the idea of their amazing properties -- flight! eternal sustenance! unmitigated growth! -- and we even try to approximate them in our own kitchens.

While some fantastic foods - such as the Everlasting Gobstopper and several other Wonka-inspired treats - have actually been translated from fiction into reality, others will always be just a fantasy. Click here for a list of 20 fictional foods and drinks we wish were real.
