Homer Simpson loves a variety of foods, but which foods are his favorites? This list of Homer Simpson's top ten favorite foods is based on episode references from The Simpsons. Whether Marge is cooking up pork chops or the family is visiting the Frying Dutchman, Homer is always ready to eat.

1. Beer

Though I don't have exact numbers for this, Homer drinks Duff beer at least once in every episode. When you think closely on it, it's no wonder The Simpsons caused a stir when it premiered in 1990, because how many hit TV shows star a heavy-drinking father?

References:

  • He visits Duff Brewery in "Duffless," Season 4.
  • The family visits Duff Gardens in "Selma's Choice," Season 4.
  • Sometimes Homer Simpson drinks fancy Duffenbrau.
