Lost & Food: What To Eat For The Series Finale
|Lost's Rose and Bernard contemplate the Dharma food supplies.|
Food has been an integral part of Lost since its inception. Mainly because for most of the show's first season the castaways were struggling to eat anything more filling than coconuts and papaya. Fans will recall John Locke's attempt to hunt down wild boar. Sun, too, got into the food providing act by starting a DIY farm, while her fisherman hubby, Jin, perused the ocean for sea urchin and other seafood. Charlie, the heroin addict, tried to soothe a pregnant Claire with faux peanut butter.
In subsequent seasons, there were Dharma food drops with Dharma branded products like peanut butter, ranch dressing and canned corn. And there were also Apollo chocolate bars. When the action moved off island (either in flashbacks, flashforwards or flashsideways) viewers found out that Hurley, the show's heftiest character, owned a chicken fast food joint called Mr. Cluck's in the "real" world. Many pivotal scenes throughout the show were filmed at Mr. Cluck's.
