One of Homer Simpson’s favorite things — doughnuts — are available in two sizes: regular and huge. A kiosk called Lard Lad Donuts (and several other places within Springfield) sells the supersize, pink-frosted doughnuts in boxes. People sometimes use them as birthday cakes, Universal executives say.
Visitors of all ages can quaff a non-alcoholic treat called a Flaming Moe, which is a citrus-vanilla tasting concoction that bubbles and smokes.
But one of the most popular offerings is the beer.
Duff Beer, the mainstay of Homer Simpson’s diet, can be found at two locations in the middle of Springfield. One is the Duff Gardens outdoor bar, which overlooks a lagoon and what will eventually be Diagon Alley, part of an upcoming Harry Potter expansion.
The other is Moe’s Tavern, a popular spot for photos.
There are three kinds of Duff Beer — Duff, Duff Light and Duff Dry (which is a dark beer) — all brewed locally.
On a recent day, visitors were lined up at Moe’s Tavern and Duff Gardens at 11 a.m., waiting for both to open so they could taste the suds.
As Homer once said on the show, “Ah, good ol’ trustworthy beer. My love for you will never die.”
