The Superman and Food Super List: 75 years of Foodie Products
With the release of the newest Superman movie, “Man of Steel”, I thought I would combine my love of food with my love of a man who wears his underwear outside his pants. “Man of Steel” set a June opening record with $125,080,000 (Thursday through Sunday estimate), making it the second biggest debut of 2013, according to The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
Since the time I can remember, I have loved Superman. My Mom tells stories of me flying around the bank in cape and Superman underwear, climbing onto the tables and singing songs (when I was 5, not last Spring Break…)
This list of foodie Superman paraphernalia and recipes celebrates years of my hero’s relationship to food.
