All The Simpsons Food You’ll Eat In ‘Springfield’ Land, Universal Studios

Have you ever been watching an episode of The Simpsons and wished you could be a fat slob like Homer and eat your way through the fictional town of Springfield? Ever dream you could bite into a Krusty Burger, or get caught in your underwear outside of the Duff Brewery after a day of binge-drinking?

Well, dream no more — Springfield is an actual themed land that you can now visit at Universal Studios Hollywood.

As of last night’s grand opening event, the Universal Studios theme park is now home to a Krusty Burger, Luigi’s, Duff Brewery, Moe’s Tavern, Kwik-E-Mart, Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, Lard Lad Donuts and Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlor.

There was food everywhere, here’s what we saw:

Colorful Simpsons Wine Bottles Look Just Like Homer and Marge

A fancy bottle of wine might be the last thing you’d break out for a Simpsons binge-watching session. But then, you’ve probably never found a wine that looks quite like this.

Russian designers Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich dreamt up a pair of wine bottles meant to resemble the iconic husband and wife duo from television’s longest running animated sitcom: Homer and Marge Simpson. Inspired by the color block paintings of Piet Mondrian, the bottles are clean and minimalistic, with sections clearly demarcated to match their characters’ appearances. As a little tongue-in-cheek nod, the wines are also said to be aged since 1987, or the year the family first debuted in shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show.

As neat as the designs are, the wines are of course just a concept. Which is probably for the better. We’d rather take a can of Duff, anyway.

Behold: A Simpsons-Themed Gingerbread House [Video]

Apparently, when creativity, pop culture, food and the holidays collide, only magical things can happen.

Want proof? Consider this Simpsons-themed gingerbread house, which was made just in time for the festive season and, coincidentally, the upcoming 23rd anniversary of the longest-running scripted show in television history. (The first Simpsons episode aired on December 17, 1989.)

The mastermind of this sweet suburban confection, who goes by mraakko on YouTube, reveals the tedious step-by-step process — with a full time-lapse video of how beloved characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie (and yes, their entire house) was created. If you’ve ever wondered how to create a masterpiece with sugar, ponder no further.

After painstakingly decorating the entire edible cast and Simpson-styled home by hand, we’re willing to bet that the creator of the confection, who also did an Angry Birds gingerbread house last year, was pretty hungry. We know we are.

Below, a fantastic video of the beloved gingerbread house, modeled after the satirical show that many of us have loved and adored for years.
