ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Duff Beer and Lard Lad Donuts — those mainstays of Homer Simpson's diet — are now a reality. So is Springfield, the mythical city from the hit animated TV show, "The Simpsons."

It's all part of a recently-opened Simpsons-themed area at Universal Orlando called Springfield. Built around "The Simpsons" ride that opened in 2008, the new zone is heavy on tasty but unhealthy food featured on the show — although there is a nod to Lisa Simpson's love of salads in the food court.

Universal has slowly added to this area for a few years. There's a new ride — the Kang and Kodos Twirl-n-Hurl — and a food court. The most popular item? Krusty Burgers.

For Duff Beer lovers, there's Moe's Tavern, a replica of the show's watering hole.
