Food Products Inspired by Movies
In conjunction with the release of Men in Black 3 on May 25, Baskin-Robbins introduced a series of frozen treats this month inspired by the themes of the movie. In fact, one of the flavors, Lunar Cheesecake, is being re-introduced — it was originally created to commemorate the first successful expedition to the moon in 1969.
While they’re not technically food, Flintstones Vitamins are one of the most famous examples of a food product inspired by Hollywood. Miles Laboratories introduced the vitamins in 1968 and Post Cereal caught onto the idea pretty quickly, debuting Pebbles Cereal (also based on The Flintstones) in 1971.
In the case of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans and Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs, Jelly Belly took products explicitly outlined in the book and film series and brought them to life. And Nestlé took things a step further when they licensed material from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and created an entire brand, Wonka Candy.
