Meet the Food-animals in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (Plus Recipes)

Over the weekend, we attended the World Premiere of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” in Los Angeles. The highlight of the smashingly awesome family film was the food-animals. We are excited to introduce you to these characters that your children are going to fall in love with after watching the film, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.”

They are cute, cuddly and hilarious in the new film.


Bananostrich – yellow banana with ostrich legs added. Easy to make and enjoy at home!

Barry – the shy, young strawberry that befriends Flint and his friends upon their arrival on the transformed island of Swallow Falls.  He’s a sweet little guy!

Cantalope – an antelope made out of a cantaloupe. A favorite in the savannah and a delicious treat for lunches.

Eggplanatee – a sea-dwelling manatee turned eggplant. He’s a loveable cooking buddy!

Flamangos – mangoes turned into part bird from the everglades. Easy to make and fun to eat!

Fruit Cockatiel – an exotic bird with pear body, pineapple-cherry eyes, and banana peel feathers. A fun and healthy treat!

Hippotatomus – potatoes with butter tongue and chive teeth that live in the river (and your kitchen)!

Kiwi Birds – the green fruit transformed into squat birds. Don’t let them fly out of your lunchbox!

Leek – the living vegetable, rich in iron and grown from a bulb…harmful to boats, yummy for lunches.

Mosquitoasts – browned bread slices with raisin eyes and cinnamon stick beak. A perfect and easy-to make way to start your day!

Sasquash – the legendary mountain-dwelling creature created from…squash.

Shrimpanzees – chimpanzees with shrimp arms and body. The Shrimpanzee will love hanging out with your family!

Susheep – gentle sheep with shrimp, carrot, cucumber, crab, avocado & sticky rice. Fun to make and even better to eat!

Tacodile – the Latin American entrée turned river carnivore. Ole!

Watermelophant – a pachyderm of the living summer fruit. Delicious and healthy!
