The MCU has a number of scenes revolving around fruit, which is great because fruits are an amazing healthy snack! We’ve already mentioned Tony’s love of blueberries in The Avengers, which, by the way, was an improvisation done by Robert Downey Jr. Turns out, like Tony, Downey Jr gets hungry while working, and he keeps food around all over set so he can have a snack between, or during, scenes. So that moment in The Avengers when Tony offers Bruce Banner a blueberry? That was all RDJ.

Aside from blueberries, Tony also had a moment with strawberries. But not a very positive one, unfortunately. Having made a fool of himself in front of his friends and his company, and made Pepper Potts’ position as CEO of Stark Industries very difficult, Tony tried to make things better by getting her an entire crate of strawberries. The only problem? Pepper is allergic to strawberries. Trust Tony to forget! Fortunately, most of us aren’t allergic to strawberries, so we can still appreciate the gesture.

And finally, a non-Tony fruit that made its mark on the MCU is the plum. In Captain America: Civil War, Bucky Barnes went into hiding in Romania and was trying to regain his memories. He was out buying plums when Interpol caught sight of him and his entire world, and the Avengers’ world, came crashing down around him. Fun fact, plums are believed to help people with their memories, so it makes sense that Bucky was buying some for himself!

For everyone watching Avengers: Endgame this weekend, a snack of fruits will be an ideal way to send-off the Avengers, and survive the three-hour-long film. Just make sure you don’t have any allergies.
