What are the foods of the future that feature in the show, and what do you suppose they taste like?

I could think of:
Glagnar's Human Rinds but would hate to think what they taste of, and Extreme Walrus Juice which sounds refreshing.

Chunky Chicken Coffee (disgusting) and Pork Gum (mostly bone according to Fry).

Human, presumably. roll eyes

As for "Walrus Juice", I would think it's the blood, semen or urine of a walrus. None of those sound particularly pleasant or refreshing.  puke

I assumed they just put the entire walrus carcass into some gigantic blender. Delicious!

Meh, I would think most things taste ok. The names would just be out there to catch ya eye.

Think Bug Juice.

No... Feel free to discuss stuff like this, but I don't see the point in trying to list them all when we already have one... hmpf

I swear I saw this on PEEL before but it isn't showing up in my search, so, here's an experiment with the closest analog we have to Bachelor Chow:

The Monkey Chow Diaries

One man's attempt to determine whether a human can "subsist on a constant diet of pelletized, nutritionally complete food like puppies and monkeys do".

I don't really understand why anyone ever would think this was a good idea. At all.

I assume Bachelor Chow at least has some nutritional value that is intended for humans, or that won't produce "suspiciously absent" poop.

Well, some zoos feed the stuff to primates and presumably they gobble it up.  The primates live for years in captivity so odds are that people could survive on it, too, however insane they might become.  I always felt bad feeding dry food to our dogs day after day after day as a kid, but the dogs were always eager and wolfed it down.  Cats don't need a varied diet but my kitty gets chunk tuna alternated every couple of days with her kidney friendly vet approved icky canned food.  Plus all of the dry food she cares for.

Hopefully the more enlightened zoos concoct varied and interesting diets for their primates.  "Here, Bonzo, come and enjoy your brazed chicken with fennel and artichoke hearts", or whatever.

Probably the closest analog for people is the "loaf" -- the nutritionally complete and utterly tasteless amalgamation of various food items that's used to punish prison inmates.  "We won't starve you, but all you'll get to eat until you behave is loaf".

Ah, the age-old "single cell protein combined with synthetic aminos, vitamins, and minerals" vs "a bowl of snot" debate.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Well Slurm exists in the real world...liquid candy. I wonder what a Neptunian slug tastes like, although I wouldn't really wanna try it.

I like to think of it as tasting like calamari, or maybe it just tastes like a slug. Barbequed buggalo didn't look so bad when Leela was eating it in Devil's Hands, but I can't imagine it tasting good.
