* In the ''Animation/KikoRiki'' episode "How to Catch a Cold", when Fluff sees his friends giving food to his other friend who [[SickEpisode has a cold]], he decides he wants to catch one so that he can be fed too and imagines himself being fed jam, jelly, and fruit.

We've all probably felt so hungry that we ended up daydreaming about the food in anticipation. Well, that's basically what this trope is: a character fantasizes about their food, either verbally (often with the line "I can just imagine the X" or "I can almost smell/taste the X") or via a FantasySequence or ThoughtBubble.

Differs from similar trope MeatOVision in that Meat-O-Vision is about imagining the people around the imaginer ''turning into'' food, (although in some cases, they ''might'' [[ActingOutADaydream briefly forget that it's all in their head]]). Delicious Daydreams are about food in general; the most surreal of these daydreams tend to be about GiantFood. They might involve a MountainOfFood.

Differs
ThoughtBubble. Naturally, cravings like these are TruthInTelevision, and you can thank your hypothalamus for that, since among its tasks in maintaining homeostasis is regulating food intake. Add to the fact that humans innately seek out foods rich in sugar, fat, salt and high-energy carbohydrates, and the science behind this trope is cracked!

GiantFood. They might involve a MountainOfFood.


Differs from MeatOVision in that they're not hallucinating, they're just imagining it (although they might [[ActingOutADaydream briefly forget that it's all in their head]] but it's still distinctly not a hallucination). Additionally, they're generally not imagining people turning into food, they're likely just imagining food in general; the most surreal of these daydreams tend to be about GiantFood.

When PlayedForLaughs, it means that the character is just [[ChewingTheScenery being dramatic]] about how hungry they are and/or how much they like the food or [[BigEater food in general]]. When PlayedForDrama, however, it can mean that the character is literally starving or hasn't had anything interesting to eat in ages. Might also be done by someone (again, usually a BigEater or someone who really loves the food) if they're about to go to a new place that serves delicious food or are imagining buying food with a large sum of money they think they will acquire. Compare MarshmallowDream.
