We all know food and fiction are the perfect couple. The presence of food makes for some of the best scenes in our favorite stories — sometimes simply delicious, others comical, and even the occasionally weird. A novel’s most eloquent lines can often come wrapped in a savory passage describing the consumption of a meal, and a character's greatest epiphanies can be inspired by a delectable (or disgusting) bite of food. Food and lit are a natural, frequent pair, whether you’re reading about a soul-searching protagonist eating her way through a foreign country or consuming a short story while chowing down on a meal yourself. Hell, even Chipotle recognizes the brilliance of the food-lit romance, printing short stories on their paper cups and bags.

And it seems the Twittersphere does, too, as a plethora of witty lit fans have taken to social media to reimagine some of their favorite classic book titles with foodie puns, making #foodiefiction the latest on a long list of brilliant literary hashtag trends.
