TikTokers recreate mouthwatering food from movies and shows

When you watch your favorite show or movie, what part do you want to experience the most? Do you want to live where they are? Be friends with the characters? Maybe… be more than friends with them? While some of these are impossible to do, there is one thing that you might have wanted to experience and that you can make a reality: taste their food.

Admit it, haven’t you ever wondered what it might be like to bite a Krabby Patty? Didn’t you ever want to take a bite out of Edmund’s Turkish Delight or taste some of Willy Wonka’s candy?

Well, you’re definitely not alone. These TikTokers took it upon themselves to recreate some of these mouthwatering meals.

TikTok user Gabrielle Williams (@gabby.jaye) seems to have made it her life mission to make any and all Disney movie food and drinks, including her own recipes inspired by these as well. With over 80 videos in her Disney Movie Foods playlist, she also has playlists dedicated to food from Nickelodeon and even one whole playlist dedicated to the food seen in Coraline.

She kicks off her series with a staple from The Princess and the Frog. Princess Tiana’s mom really knew what she was saying when she said that “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Check out these drool-inducing beignets.

Who could ever forget how Kronk saved his spinach puffs from burning? Kuzko and Yzma may not have been able to taste them but now we can!

Pain and Panic may have gotten in trouble for getting some Hercules merch, but who could blame them? Herculade looks truly thirst-quenching!

What about the movie that made you feel embarrassed, laugh, and cry all at once? Not to mention all the iconic Powerline songs. Why not eat some “hi dad” soup next time you view this Goofy movie?

Don’t forget to cleanse the palette like a princess!

With this dish, feel free to ditch the fork and use your hands instead.

Other users have also decided to show off their culinary skills on TikTok with show and movie meals as their chosen challenges. TikTok user @its.chloeh has her own foods and recipes from film series. Her series has a wider range of options, including some appetizing anime meals and snacks.

In the fantastical world of Spirited Away there were a lot of tempting (and dangerous) meals throughout the film. If Chihiro can eat the onigiri without anything happening to her, then maybe we can too!

@its.chloeh Crying cuz it’s so damn good #easyrecipe #simplerecipe #quickrecipes #ghibli #onigiri #rice #anime #japanesefood ♬ Spirited Away – Edward Chang Violin

Another classic Studio Ghibli meal, let the magic happen and dig into this heart and belly-warming bowl.

@its.chloeh I really hope u guys like it! #recipe #foodtiktok #easyrecipe #animefood #ponyo #studioghibli #ponyoramen #anime ♬ 崖の上のポニョ (『崖の上のポニョ』 より) [Cover Ver.] – Kstones

More than just Studio Ghibli, its.chloeh has multiple recipe videos for all the delicious-looking food from Your Name. From bentos, to souffle pancakes, to croquet sandwiches, they all seem equally as mouthwatering.

@its.chloeh This might be my fav so far #quickrecipes #foodie #easyrecipe #yourname #anime #japanesefood #moviefood ♬ Sparkle (From “Your Name”) – Homura Records

Moving away from the animated and live-action movies, she also dabbles in series snacks.

Maybe How I Met Your Mother isn’t the first series you think of when you think of show food, other than maybe taking a bite of Marshall’s official best burger in New York. But after seeing this recipe of Tracy’s som’b*tches, you might think again.

@its.chloeh These r magic #howimetyourmother #cookierecipe #chewycookies #recipes #quickrecipes #baking #recreate ♬ La Vie en Rose – Minnz Piano

If you trust in your cooking skills, then why not give these recipes a try? You could make a whole day of it! But if you aren’t so sure about your kitchen skills, at least you can live vicariously through its.chloeh and Gabrielle Williams.

You can also have second-hand satisfaction by watching these TikTokers who challenged themselves to eat only snacks and meals featured in certain series or films for the whole day.

Doesn’t seem too hard surviving on Stranger Things food for one day, right? It certainly seems a lot easier than defeating Vecna.

@tommywinkler Reply to @frogface48 They eat good in this show😋 #strangerthings #foodtok #kingofcrunch #foryou #movie ♬ Stranger Things – Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein

Or, try combining different show foods for one day to include even more iconic meals like cheese-jerky, spaghetti tacos, and more!

@mattpeterson_ Reply to @itzcynthia09 Only eating foods from TV shows #tvshow #hannahmontana #fairlyoddparents #kardashians #foodchallenge #foryou #viral #icarly #fy ♬ good 4 u – Olivia Rodrigo

If only Willy Wonka’s TV invention of grabbing food right from your TV set existed. But while we wait for that technology to be perfected, put those cooking skills to the test for a bite of these magical meals. Happy watching (and eating)!
