40w ago

Have you ever cooked something and think "what if this is my last meal?". Well, these death row criminals got to choose the last thing they ate, and some of them are quite interesting.

Ronnie Lee Gardner

Arrested for killing a man during a robbery, was executed in 2010 by a firing squad.

His last meal consisted in a lobster tail, steak, apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and 7 Up. He also requested to watch The Lord of the Rings film trilogy while he ate his meal.

John Wayne Gazy

Serial killer and sex offender. He was executed in 1994 by lethal injection.

His last meal consisted in a dozen deep-fried shrimp, a bucket of original recipe chicken from KFC, French fries, a pound of strawberries, and a bottle of diet Coke.

Bruno Hauptman

Arrested for the abduction and murder of the child of aviator Charles Lindberg. Died in the electric chair in 1936.

He had celery, olives, chicken, french fries, buttered peas, cherries, and a slice of cake.

Gary Gilmore

Murderer, executed in 1977 by a firing squad.

His last meal consisted in a hamburger, hard boiled eggs, baked potatoes, coffee, and three shots of contraband Jack Daniel's whiskey.

Robert Alton Harris

Executed in the gas chamber for the murder of two teenage boys.

His last meal request was a 21-piece bucket of KFC, two large Domino's Pizzas (no anchovies), ice cream, a bag of jelly beans, a six-pack of Pepsi, and a pack of Camel cigarettes. The pizza ended up being Tombstone Pizza by an officer's orders.

Lawrence Russel Brewer

A white supremacist and murderer executed in 2011 with lethal injection.

He requested two chicken fried steaks smothered in gravy with sliced onions; a triple meat bacon cheeseburger with fixings on the side; a cheese omelet with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapeños; a large bowl of fried okra with ketchup; one pound of barbecue with half a loaf of white bread; three fajitas with fixings; a Meat Lovers pizza; three root beers; one pint of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream; and a slab of peanut butter fudge with crushed peanuts.

When the meal arrived, he refused it saying he was not hungry, this made Texas stop granting last meal requests to condemned inmates.

What do you think about these choices? Do you think they are good enough as a last meal?

If you could choose, what would your last meal be? Let me know in the comments!

  • I've been asked this before, and my answer then was the roasted head of a unicorn. My only amendment now is I'd send a quick note out to for a complementary wine.

    • 😂 If that's an attempt to try and not be executed, I don't think it works that way 😂. Apparently some prisoners have had weird request, and all they get is nothing. One was interviewed and said "I actually wanted a roasted duck but I didn't...

  • My answer to this question changes with the seasons, but today, I'd say: Oysters & Champagne, some bluefin tuna belly sushi, maybe an Al Pastor burrito, and finish with a top shelf Old Fashion with Hill Rock Estate Rye Whiskey.
