** In another episode, Zhaan, a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe good looking, blue skinned]] [[{{Planimal}} plant-derived]] alien, spent almost the entire episode in an observation room sunbathing by the light of a star during a nova period. In something vaguely akin to photosynthesis, she was enjoying the high energy spikes of light [[[[FantasticArousal quite a lot]].

* The page quote comes from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQzmK670yI this scene]] of Series/{{Farscape}}. Later that episode, Rygel actually steals candy from trick-or-treating kids.
** In a later episode ("A Constellation of Doubt"), Rygel comments out that most species consider refined sucrose to be an addictive poison. So it's existence wasn't unknown to him, but he was unprepared for the abundance.

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is a major element of Joe Haldeman's "A !Tangled Web." The !tang (who look like "perambulating haystack[s] with an elephant's trunk protruding") become intoxicated from eating sugar, and alcohol is like a psychedelic drug to them. On the [[InvertedTrope flip side]], "one bite of !tang bread contain[s] enough mescaline to make you see interesting things for hours"; one human fellow who eats some spends time "amusing them with impersonations of various Earth vegetables."

* A more literal example appears in ''Series/RedDwarf'', when The Cat compares a RealityIsOutToLunch sequence to "triple-strength catnip".

** It's debatable just how "soft" butterbeer actually is. The simplest explanation is that it is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_beer#Small_beer a mildly alcoholic malt beverage]]: not enough alcohol to have a major effect on even a very young (Harry has his first nip at 14, and the stuff doesn't seem to be age-restricted like firewhisky) human, but if a house elf (roughly half the size of even an adolescent human) rips through a six-pack in under an hour, well.... We should note that historical [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfTudor Tudor-era England]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_Jgq-VQE-o had a drink called butterbeer, made of butter, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, and ale]]; it's not ''terribly'' alcoholic--since it involves diluting beer, and if you use a weaker English brew like session ale (beer in the 16th century would've been weaker, as it was the safe alternative to drinking water and the English hadn't gotten ahold of tea yet)--but still enough you could get drunk after a few pints. [[http://recipewise.co.uk/buttered-beere-1588 Here's one of numerous recipes.]]
