Futurama: Slurm & Bachelor Chow

In Futurama, Fry loves one drink above all others – Slurm. This fictional oozing green liquid may strike some viewers as a Coca-Cola of the future and in many ways it is! The drink is highly addicting, incredibly delicious, and has a mystery formula that no one knows. That is, until Fry and company win a trip to visit the Slurm factory, hosted by the charismatic and troubled Slurms McKenzie. This Willy Wonka-esque factory holds the secret to the Slurm recipe, which is a giant slug queen squirting it out of her nether regions into bottles. Of course, we couldn’t find a gigantic slug to create our very own Slurm excrement, so we did our best and made an easy-to-do, refreshing, and delicious ginger ale that shares the similar green color, as well as the fun label! The second food we create, Bachelor Chow, is the Futurama version of Puppy Chow, an unhealthy, but delicious snack food. The comparison was obvious when we saw the packaging for Bachelor Chow, placed conveniently in a dog food bowl.
