Tom Colicchio's Simpsons cameo reminds us of these great food scenes

Categories: Lists

Recent reports provide illustrated proof that Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio will make an appearance on the premiere episode of the 23rd season of The Simpsons. Apparently, Marge wants to be a Top Chef contestant. (Oh, Marge, so adorable!)

Which got us thinking about all the memorable scenes involving food over the show's large run -- thanks largely to Homer's absurd appetite. Here are our ten favorites.

10. "Power Sauce Bars"
Tangentially related to food, Homer eats Power Sauce bars (which we later find out are made from "apple cores and old Chinese newspapers"). From the May 3, 1998, episode, "King of the Hill."

9. "Abe and Jasper High on a Bench"
From the November 15, 1998, episode, "D'oh-in in the Wind," Abe Simpson and fellow very old person Jasper Beard drink juice spiked with the "personal vegetables" of Seth and Munchie, friends of Homer's. Of course, Westword's pot critic suggested this clip.

8. "You came and you found me a turkey"
"The Last Temptation of Homer," which originally aired in December 1993, includes special guest Michelle Pfeiffer -- but the sing-songy joke involving a turkey comes at 2:07 into the clip. You know the one.

7. "64 slices of American cheese"
From the "Rosebud" episode, which first aired on October 21, 1993.

6. The Merciless Peppers of Quetzlzacatenango
"That Simpson, he thinks he's the Pope of Chili Town!" In this classic clip from the January 1997 episode "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)," Homer eats the "Merciless Peppers of Quetzlzacatenango" and, later, Johnny Cash is the voice of a coyote that gives Homer advice during his hallucinogenic trip/spiritual journey.

Homer's Moon WaffleCaramel, waffle batter, liquid smoke cooked on a waffle iron then wrapped around a stick of butter and eaten off of a toothpick, classic!

and often found in the Simpons cupboards

Nuts and Gum, together at last!


How could you not include any scenes from the episode where Homer is a food critic? The "low fat" exploding eclair is a classic. Couldn't find a clip.
