It takes watching just a few episodes of The Simpsons to know that food and drink are at times recurring characters and at other times plot devices. The doughnut alone has shown us various shades of Homer's vulnerabilities; he traded his soul for one in "Treehouse of Horror IV."

As of Aug. 5, visitors to Universal Studios Orlando can taste a Lard Lad doughnut for themselves, in addition to tacos from Bumblebee Man's Taco Truck, beer from Duff Gardens, and, well, you get the idea. It's the latest round of additions to the park's adaptation of The Simpsons, according to Inside the Magic. They join Moe's Tavern, Krusty Burger and a handful of concessions called Springfield Fast Food Boulevard located inside a facade of Cletus' Chicken Shack, all of which opened earlier in June.
Here at the Weekly, we're unabashed about our appreciation for The Simpsons and, even if the real-life renditions (see: Korean beef taco) aren't calling out to us, the theme park is still going on our travel list.More »
