Reader: How could you forget Homer's low-fat exploding eclair?

Tom Colicchio -- or a reasonable facsimile -- will guest star on The Simpsons later this month, which inspired our look back at some of the great Simpsons food scenes.

Wonders Wratha:

How could you not include any scenes from the episode where Homer is a food critic? The "low fat" exploding eclair is a classic.

Tk has a few more:

Homer's Moon Waffle

Caramel, waffle batter, liquid smoke cooked on a waffle iron. then wrapped around a stick of butter and eaten off of a toothpick, classic!

and often found in the Simpsons' cupboards

Nuts and gum, together at last!
