Gilligan’s Island
Long before vegan cupcake shops populated the American landscape with their agave-sweetened, faux-bacon crumble topping, Mary Ann Summers (Dawn Wells) turned the tropical bounty surrounding her into Gilligan’s (Bob Denver) favorite desert isle dessert. The irresistible appeal of Mary Ann’s vegan coconut cream pie became a running gag on the show, though it would’ve never occurred to the modest Winfield, Kan., farm girl to blog about her recipe.
