Ever watched a film and found yourself getting really hungry but not knowing why? It could be one of two things; you may have skipped dinner and are legitimately hungry, or your movie could be sending you mouth-watering subliminal messages.
Here we explore some of our favourite foods that have appeared in films and the pros and cons of actually eating them in real life. From Willy Wonka’s Everlasting Gobstopper, to Bruce Bogtrotter’s victory over Miss Trunchbull’s mammoth chocolate cake in Matilda, we dare you to read these and not get a craving for one of them.
