NBC's new hit show 'This is Us' has become my recent obsession. After hours of binge-watching, I’ve learned a lot about each character. Every time I watch a new episode, I appreciate the casting more and more. 

And because of the food lover I am, I found it pretty fitting to determine what the characters on ‘This is Us’ would be if they were foods.

Jack Pearson: Apple Pie

When I think of Jack, I think of an all-American favorite, like apple pie. Jack’s warmth and compassionate persona is similar to the inside of a freshly baked apple pie. You know Jack will always be there for you to cheer you up and make you smile, just like apple pie.

Rebecca Pearson: Lasagna

cheese, sauce, pasta, lasagna, parmesan
Christy Luong

Rebecca is definitely lasagna. Just like lasagna, Rebecca has many layers to her character. As a wife, mom, and band member, Rebecca constantly tries to hold it all together but has moments where she is fragile and just falls apart. 

Kate Pearson: One Tough Cookie

wheat, bread, candy, goody, cake, pastry, chocolate, cookie, sweet
Meredith Ross

Kate is one tough cookie. Just like a warm cookie, you love her so much and always want more of her. She's determined and strong like the outside of a cookie. However, Kate also faces many struggles and sometimes crumbles, just like a warm cookie straight out of the oven. 

Kevin Pearson: Molten Lava Cake

coffee, pastry, milk, candy, cake, cream, sweet, chocolate
Helena Lin

Kevin is clearly a chocolate molten lava cake. I mean, anyone with that kind of body appears to be tough on the outside. But, throughout the show, we’ve seen Kevin’s loving character underneath his macho persona. Just like lava cake, Kevin is strong on the outside but has his gooey and warm emotional side.

Randall Pearson: Trail Mix

raisin, cranberry, almond, nut
Tiare Brown

Like the multiple foods that go into trails mix, Randall has many aspects that make up his complex character. Randall’s uniqueness is a combination of his complicated upbringing, husband, dad, and successful businessman. Randall is always trying to juggle having a perfect life and puts everyone before himself. He’s definitely a complicated one, like trails mix.

Beth Pearson: Chocolate Bark

caramel, sweet, toffee, candy, chocolate
Analiese Trimber

Hard, edgy, yet sweet. Beth is just like chocolate bark. Although she comes off as extremely protective, she's the sweetest. Don't get me wrong. She won't let anyone mess with her or her family. But once you get past her tough, outer shell, she's the sweetest and you always want more of her.

William Hill: Mom's Homemade Chicken Soup

Oh, William. Mom's homemade chicken soup is the food that first comes to mind when I think of William. Chicken soup is good for the soul, especially during sick times when you want to feel better and warm inside. William is most definitely a fighter, and his compassionate personality is just as comforting as mom's chicken soup. 

Toby Damon: Mac and Cheese

poutine, spaghetti, sauce, penne, cheese, french fries, macaroni, pasta
Kirby Barth

Obviously, Toby would be mac and cheese. Who doesn’t love mac and cheese? I’ll wait… Toby’s comforting and cheesy personality can brighten anyone’s day. Just like mac and cheese, Toby warms your heart and is a go-to when you need some love.
