Five Fictional Foods You've Always Wanted To Try

If you're anything like me, there has been at least one time in your life where you've been hungry for that special something... You know, that very unique, delicious, one-of-a-kind food... that doesn't exist. When I was growing up, I wasn't a very picky eater. I ate just about anything, but I always wanted something more.. Something my mom had never made before. And that's when I realized: I've always wanted to experiment with new recipes and new tastes. I've always wanted to try some of the mouthwatering dishes from my favorite childhood television shows and movies. But I mean, how could you not want to try these?



Scooby Snacks - These delicious looking treats (featured on "Scooby-Doo" and its many spin-offs) were used as an incentive for Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Rogers. In "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo", it is revealed that the recipe for Scooby Snacks comes from Sorcerer Snacks, which were renamed after Scooby-Doo once the gang solves the mystery of who was trying to sabotage their production. In "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins", it is revealed that the recipe for Scooby Snacks includes eggs, water, flour, cocoa, sugar, and dog kibble for texture (even though cocoa and chocolate are toxic to dogs!). Unfortunately, the closest thing us humans have ever gotten to this delicious looking treat is baked graham cracker sticks! *sadface*


The Perfect Candy - In an episode of "Jimmy Neutron", Jimmy, Carl and Sheen visit the Candy Bar. Carl and Sheen have trouble deciding whether they would prefer to snack on candy that is salty, sweet, sour, or savory. They discuss creating a candy that incorporates all of their favorite flavors, and of course, Jimmy does it. Beginning with his classmates, the entire town is soon in a frenzy over Jimmy's famous Perfect Candy (which makes the consumer addicted to the candy). This candy caused his friends and family to turn their backs on him, and chase him down with angry mobs. To this day, I just want to know what all of the fuss was about!


Naco - "Taco meets nacho... I call it the naco." - Ron Stoppable, "Kim Possible"

The naco is a combination of nachos and a taco. It was created by Ron Stoppable and has been featured on the menu at Bueno Nacho. It consists of nacho chips and cheese, mixed with the fillings of a taco, placed in a soft tortilla, and lifting up the sides in order to form a bag-like shape. If you enjoy Mexican food but can never decide what to order, this delectable invention just might be the best of both worlds.


The Peruvian Puff Pepper - In an episode of "Drake and Josh," the boys are entering a salsa making competition in order to win a brand-new television for their bedroom. Their devious little sister, Megan, asks if she can join their team, and they reject her. She decides to make her own salsa for the competition, including the extremely rare and expensive (and also illegal!) Peruvian Puff Pepper as one of her ingredients. However, they were unaware that this pepper, found in the jungles of Peru, was illegal, as it caused kidney failure and/or chapped lips. Drake and Josh steal the pepper and use it in their own salsa. At the competition, they are asked to reveal the secret ingredient in their award winning salsa, and when they do, they are disqualified and the brand new television goes to the second place winner... Their little sister Megan. It might be hot, but it must be good if it helped Drake and Josh win first place!


And last but not least...


The Krabby Patty - The Krabby Patty is a beloved burger that is the hottest menu item at the Krusty Krab. It is also the most famous sandwich in Bikini Bottom. The Krabby Patty is made out of a frozen hamburger with fresh lettuce, crisp onions and tomatoes, undersea cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup, and a secret ingredient. Designed by Mr. Krabs in his younger years, fans have been guessing at the secret ingredient for years. What could it be? Crab meat? A secret sauce? The world may never know. But what we do know is that you can't eat too many at once. Why, you ask? Because they'll go straight to your thighs... And then you'll blow up!


Although we have not yet been graced with these mouthwatering recipes, hopefully sometime in the (NEAR) future, we'll be able to finally taste these and many other treats from some of our favorite television shows and movies!

9 Things All Mexican Food Addicts Know All Too Well

Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

In the city I grew up in, there is a Mexican restaurant just about every five miles. They are the after school hangouts and first date go-to's for most of the kids here, especially the high school girls.

I know the servers at my favorite one know my order almost every time I go in there (at least once a week). However, a lot of people apparently get tired of eating Mexican food about twice a week... but I sure don't. If you are a Mexican food addict like me, I am sure you know at least a few of these yourself.

1. Cheese dip tastes like heaven and you have to have it.

That amazing creamy white cheese dip put on a perfectly salted chip is enough to make your day better. Forget the actual food---we'd be content living off of cheese dip and chips for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant trip is not complete without an order of it and if you are lucky enough to get your favorite waiter, maybe even get a large bowl for the night.

2. You never have to look at the menu.



We know when we decide to go what we are having and it is probably the exact same plate we order each time. I am sure the servers laugh after I order some days because there is only three things I rotate between. My burrito is always my go-to, unless I am feeling fancy.

3. Some of the servers know who you are when you walk in the door.

Either by first name or by order they know us. You are the ones that they tell to pick your own seat and already have your drink order placed by the time you sit down.

4. Your boyfriend/ girlfriend puts you on Mexican restaurant restriction on date night.


You drag them there so much, they get tired of eating there. So much so, they flat out say no when you ask to go there on date night. I mean, how does someone get tired of Mexican food to begin with though?

5. You can hum some of the songs that come on.

We may not know what they are saying in the song, but we know the song---trust us. We are in there so much we remember them. Don't ask any questions when we start humming.

6. You "have" a parking spot.

Do not park in my parking spot that is not actually my parking spot, but is my parking spot. Got it? Just do not do it. That starts my meal bad when you take my normal spot.

7. You used to hangout there all the time after school.

It was the hangout spot. Forget the nasty school lunch--- everyone goes to eat Mexican after school. It's the cool thing to do and it started your addiction.

8. You always want to introduce new people to your favorite restaurant.

Oh, you aced that exam? Let's go eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant I love! We always want to find people to go there to eat with so we always introduce new people to it.

9. People always pick on you about your addiction.


Yes, I love Mexican food. Go ahead and tag me in all the memes on Facebook about tacos. As long as I have my Mexican food, I am fine with that.

All in all, we LOVE our Mexican food and our go-to restaurants--- so here is your warning. Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

10 La Croix Flavors The World Needs

If your favorite flavor is Pure, you're wrong.

236

While La Croix has produced many, many, flavors, there's still a variety that we La Croix lovers are still waiting for. On top of this, there are also a lot of flavors that are hated (even despised) by many. While my personal favorite is Blackberry & Cucumber (preferably with a splash of vodka), many find the combination weird. I'm here to list a few new flavors that La Croix needs to highly consider.

1. Honeydew & Cantaloupe

I have a confession... I love honeydew. I know, this is a controversial opinion, but I honestly love the green melon that everyone just considers to be just a filler for fruit salad. Paired with the flavor of cantaloupe, I highly believe that the combination combined with the fizz of a delicious La Croix could be revolutionary. Just think about it until you start giving me hate.

2. Grape

I'm honestly shocked that this still isn't a thing, but everyone really is waiting for a grape-flavored La Croix. For any grape soda lovers, this could easily be a healthier alternative, and as La Croix is known for their natural flavors, this can be a nice step away from the traditional, artificial grape flavor. Just imagine the flavor of some delicious green grapes canned into a fizzy La Croix.

3. Prickly Pear

I know this sounds like a weird one, and some of you may have never even heard of it, but some know the deliciousness of the prickly pear. Growing on cactuses, prickly pears offer a mild flavor, somewhat similar to that of pears and apples. Again, this might sound weird to some, but it's clear that La Croix isn't afraid of offering out-of-the-box flavors. They offer other ones like Blackberry & Cucumber, Apricot, and one of the newest additions, a Cola flavor.

4. Guava

To me, a guava-flavored La Croix doesn't really seem like much of a stretch. I really think that it goes along with the quite random variety of flavors La Croix offers, and guava juice is actually a popular drink. You can buy guava juice in cans, so who's to say that the flavor can't be incorporated into some bubbles and have "La Croix" slapped on the cans.

5. Fig & Honey

Figs and honey are a traditional pairing and also one that could flood its way into La Croix-loving millennial hearts. Figs have a fairly mild taste, often actually being compared to honey. The two go hand-in-hand and once again, going right along with the unique variety of flavors that La Croix currently has. I will say that I don't know exactly how this one would be received right off the bat, but there will definitely be those that will enjoy it, just like those weirdos who like Pure and Coconut.

6. Pumpkin

OK, I'll admit that I'm not so sure about this one, but I can easily see La Croix doing some sort of seasonal, fall limited-edition type campaign here. Just like the Pumpkin Spice Latte and pumpkin flavored beers, there are some that love them and some that hate them. I'm not sure if La Croix would go full pumpkin spice with this one, because honestly the thought of drinking fizzy cinnamon kind of makes me queasy, but pumpkin by itself could be leading to something.

7. Strawberry & Rhubarb 

Anyone who has had the pleasure of enjoying a slice of strawberry rhubarb pie knows how perfect the combination is. The sweet flavor of the strawberries paired with the tart rhubarb is delicious and something I could definitely see La Croix diving into. Though rhubarb isn't a citrus, the sour and pungent flavor definitely resembles it. Offering flavors like lime, lemon, orange, and more, we know that La Croix is a big fan of these more sour flavors.

8. Green Tea

I know this one strays from La Croix's typical fruit flavors, but I still think it makes sense. Matcha and green tea are definitely on trend right now, and I'd be very interested to see how La Croix would put their twist on it. Everyone loves a good can of Arizona Green Tea, but I'm definitely down to try a less sweet and carbonated version.

9. Taro

Again, I realize that this seems a little strange and, once again, veers from the typical La Croix flavor profiles, but I still see it working out. Taro is actually a root vegetable, however it is a featured flavor on many bubble tea menus. It's described as having a "sweet, nutty flavor", which is something that I don't think sounds completely out-of-the-box for La Croix. It'd definitely be interesting and something I'd be curious to try.

10. Spiked

I'm not gonna lie here, this entire list was pretty much just for me to have a reason to talk about my biggest wish for La Croix: Spiked La Croix. Spiked Sparkling Seltzer is really up-and-coming right now, with brands like White Claw, Truly, Spiked Seltzer, and even Smirnoff hopping into the game, so I really don't think it would be that much of a push for La Croix to release their own take on it. Let's be honest, we all are prone to throw some vodka in it now and then, so why not just make it easier on us and just do it for us, La Croix?! Taking some of the flavors they already offer and giving them an alcoholic twist would be loved by La Croix fans, college students, and housewives alike. Can you just imagine the possibilities?!

I really believe that some of these could be strong contenders for La Croix to take up and make their own. So, La Croix, if ya need some help developing, please free to hit me up... Anyways, what're some of your hopes for La Croix flavors? Let us know in the comments!
