10 Great How I Met Your Mother Food Moments

courtesy of CBS

After 10 glorious and pop-culture changing seasons, the CBS dramady How I Met Your Mother ends tonight.  It got me thinking of all the crazy food-related episodes, like Stinson’s disgusting but effective hangover fix, and Slutty Pumpkin.

In season seven, Ted stumbles upon the legen, wait for it, dary Slutty Pumpkin, a.k.a. Katie Holmes, at a Halloween party.  For many seasons I will convince myself SHE'S the Mother.

Secretly a sipper or wife Lily's fruity, girly cocktails, Marshall finally gets up the courage to order his own in season eight.  He orders what he plans to dub as the 'Minnesota Tidal Wave', only to find out his concoction already had a name: The Robin Scherbatsky.

Stinson's Hangover Fixer Elixir

 
 

It's green, it's ugly, and Barney swears it a cure all.  We meet Stinson's Hangover Fixer Elixir in season nine, and it takes the friends a whole season to recall the ingredients.  Tantrum soda, Funyuns, grease and a banana on their own, but only Barney can reveal the missing component: love.
