What's in YOUR Refrigerator?

There's no denying: this scene makes you understand where the term foodgasm comes from.

The movie is 9 1/2 Weeks, from 1986, with stars Kim Basinger and Mickey Rooney. The film, which starts with two strangers encountering each other in a Chinese grocery store and ends up in . . . bed? Well, not necessarily, as this scene demonstrates.

The film caused a stir, when it was released, for its explicitness.

And the foods selected by John (Rooney), who feeds them to Elizabeth (Basinger ) who sits in anticipation with closed eyes. An olive. Maraschino cherries. Cherry tomato. Strawberries. (Hmm-a red theme going on there.) Pasta. Jalapeno pepper. Oh there's liquid too. Champagne. Cough syrup (??) Honey. Milk. And . . . jello!

This scene clearly is among the sexiest food scenes in a movie. If you had been the director, what other foods would you have added to this scene?
