Ever wanted to try Phoebe's famous cookies or the cheesecake Rachel and Chandler just couldn't get enough of?

If you’re a die hard fan of the show Friends, you already know that food is always on the table. Whether it’s Phoebe’s coveted family cookies or a stolen cheesecake—courtesy of Chandler and Rachel—food played a huge part in the show. And thanks to this Instagram shop, we can experience what it’s like to eat like we’re part of the gang. 

There For Food—a play on the iconic sitcom’s theme song—started in May 2021. While it was challenging to recreate the desserts shown on screen with their own recipes, this didn’t deter the shop from launching their first three products: Phoebe’s Cookies, The Stolen Cheesecake, and Rachel’s “Beef” Trifle

In an episode titled The One With Phoebe's Cookies, Monica goes to tremendous lengths to discover the secret behind Phoebe's cherished family cookie recipe. She might’ve experienced some kitchen difficulty when it came to recreating the delicious pastry but luckily There For Food got the job done. FYI their own iteration of Phoebe’s Cookies (P300) have crisp edges and soft, gooey centers, plus they're loaded with chocolate chips!

Ever wondered what the cheesecake from Mama's Little Bakery tasted like? It must've been heavenly for Chandler and Rachel to have stolen it twice and eaten it off the floor, no less!  There For Food’s Stolen Cheesecake (P350) cuts it close and it demonstrates the reason why the duo were so obsessed with it in the first place. The IG shop’s version has a buttery, crumbly graham cracker crust, with a very rich yet light cream cheese filling.

Rachel's effort at creating a Thanksgiving dessert that went horribly wrong in season six became one of Friends' most legendary food moments. The sweet English treat could’ve been good, but it didn’t turn out so well thanks to Rachel accidentally adding sauteed beef with peas and onions into the mix. 

Don’t worry though! Despite looking like the character’s disastrous creation, There For Food’s Rachel’s Trifle (P275) won’t be something you’ll want to throw away. This one features layers of ladyfingers, handmade jam, rich custard, bananas, and freshly whipped cream, just like the original. Most importantly, it is free of meat! Instead, a delightful coconut and chocolate cake crumb layer is used in this trifle.

If you want the full Friends food experience, you can indulge in more options like the Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (P260) or the “Funny” Brownies (P350). For a more savory route, there’s also Chandler’s Mac ‘n Cheese Chips (P185)! 

Whether you're a loyal fan of the show or not, one thing’s for sure: Anyone’s Joey-sized appetite will enjoy these goodies!
