There are a lot of really great fictional foods – Reptar Bars, roller-skating apple pies, and literally everything made by Willy Wonka (especially the three-course-meal chewing gum) – but my absolute favorite is the cornball.
It’s one of the many recurring jokes on Arrested Development (which is back from the dead in one week, hallelujah), and as far as fictional foods go, it’s really nothing special – just a dough made from a mix that’s deep fried in the hilariously dangerous Cornballer.
The reason it’s my favorite is because you can actually feasibly make them at home. My version is an amped up corn muffin that’s been baked, not fried, in cake pop pans so they still keep their ball shape.
Though this begs the question – if you don’t burn yourself while making it, is it still a cornball?
