Our Favorite Food Moments in Film

Mar 19 2012 - 6:43am

In some movie scenes, it's not the actors that steal the show — it's the food. We're looking back on some of the most memorable food moments in film, from the sugary world of Willy Wonka to the baby corn in Big. Take a look, then share your favorite food scenes in the comments below!

Lady and the Tramp

In one of the most classic movie images of all time, Lady and the Tramp share spaghetti — only to realize they're eating the same noodle. (Aww.)


The 12-year-old Josh — who wakes up as a grown-up — goes to a fancy party and nibbles on baby corn. Then, of course, he quickly spits it out.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

In Willy Wonka's chocolate room, there's a chocolate river, gummy bear trees, and lollipops growing out of the ground — in other words, every kid's dream world.

When Harry Met Sally

Truth is, there's not really any food involved. Still, Katz's Deli was made famous by Sally's fake orgasm and another diner's response: "I'll have what she's having."

The Wedding Singer

There's something so adorable and innocent about the way Robbie's grandma serves him meatballs: in the palms of her hands. Rosie's rap number may have stolen the show, but we never looked at meatballs the same.


Ron Burgundy is in the middle of a downward spiral when he heads out on a hot day, milk in hand. Unfortunately, though, "Milk was a bad choice."

The Breakfast Club

Quirky Allison puts together a seriously strange, supersugary sandwich — complete with Pixy Stix and Cap'n Crunch.

Meet Joe Black

When Death ("Joe Black") tastes peanut butter for the first time, it's one of the greatest moments he's ever had, so he immediately goes for round two. And three. And four.


Buddy the Elf is all about the four major food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and maple syrup — his favorite spaghetti topping.

The Little Rascals

When Buckwheat buys a pickle for two cents, he celebrates with an original song: "I got two pickles, I got two pickles, I got two pickles, hey, hey, hey, hey."
