Previously, we gave you our Top 10 Fictional Movie Food and Drink list. Now we're taking on the T.V. version. Not surprisingly, there were a lot of options to choose from and some of you, we're sure, will feel that a few of your favorites are missing (feel free to let us know). So with apologies in advance to Futurama fans and Lost fans for not including Slurm and Dharma Beer, we present to you our Fictional T.V. Top Ten Food and Drink list.
10. Colon Blow, from Saturday Night Live:
SNL has come up with a great many fictional food products in their commercial parodies. One of our favorites that didn't quite make the cut was Jon Hamm's John Ham. But it's hard not to find a spot on the list for the late, great Phil Hartman, seen here in his ad for Colon Blow.
9. <strong>Crunchy Frog, from Monty Python's Flying Circus:
With classic Monty Python dialogue, John Cleese interrogates Terry Jones in this episode of Flying Circus, to find out more about his unappetizing chocolate confectionery company.
8. Top Of The Muffin To You!, from Seinfeld:
Everyone knows the best part of the muffin is the top. But can you really operate a store that discards all the bottoms? Other fictional Seinfeld foods that didn't make the cut: Hennigan's Scotch and Beef-a-Reeno.
7. The Cornballer, from Arrested Development:
George Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) came up with the Cornballer in the mid 70s, a device that fries a ball of corn dough in corn oil. They are delicious, but the machine will inevitably scar you horribly across the arms. Unfortunately, we'll just have to settle for watching the infomercial with Richard Simmons.
6. The Tracy Jordan Meat Machine, from 30 Rock:
The inspiration for the KFC Double Down? We like to think so. With the Tracy Jordan Meat Machine, you can take any three meats and turn them into a sandwich. Who needs bread? For another good 30 Rock fictional food, see: Cheesy Blasters.
5. Chocolate Salty Balls, from South Park:
When you make a ridiculous soul song about something like Chocolate Salty Balls, it really helps to have a guy like Isaac Hayes singing it for you. Our second favorite fictional, edible, television balls? Alec Baldwin in SNL's Schweddy Balls sketch.
4. Duff Beer, from The Simpsons:
The Simpsons has a lot of excellent food and drink. But at the end of the day, we have to go with the one we'd be most likely to consume — and that, of course, is Duff Beer. Duff has never been made as an officially licensed Simpsons product, though people have certainly tried to do it anyway.
3. Samuel Jackson Beer, from Chappelle's Show:
Here's another beer we can get behind. If Samuel L. Jackson ever actually started his own brewing company and dressed up as a colonial for advertisements, we'd be there.

2. Scooby Snacks from Scooby-Doo:
Dog treats, or stoner food? Maybe both. Yes, you can buy Scooby Snacks in real stores now, but we all know that's not the same stuff Shaggy kept getting so hungry for.
1. Taco Town's Pizza Crepe Taco Pancake Chili Bag, from Saturday Night Live:
Thankfully, fast food restaurants still have another level to get to before they start selling something like this behemoth monstrosity. Though someone did actually make one in real life.
