With this in mind, it's no surprise that certain mundane-to-us substances might make them a bit... [[IntoxicationEnsues funny.]]

* The page quote comes from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQzmK670yI this scene]] of Series/{{Farscape}}, where the cast are visiting Earth during Halloween, and Rygel is getting high on candy. Later that episode, Rygel actually steals candy from trick-or-treating kids. In a later episode ("A Constellation of Doubt"), Rygel even comments 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.

So it's existence wasn't unknown to him, but he was unprepared for the abundance. As Earth isn't that politically correct quite yet, it's available everywhere, and Rygel is indulging himself. To humans, it’s a cheap high. To aliens who are not used to being able to pick up hundreds of calories in the palm of their hand? Alien Catnip.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter loves Oreo Cookies. ''Really'' loves Oreo cookies. In a story he tells to Franchise/GreenLantern Kyle Rayner, it turns out they have an effect on his Martian physiology similar to nicotine. In ComicBook/TheSandman, he celebrates meeting one of the Endless by sharing a box with [[ComicBook/NewGods Scott Free]] at the Watchtower. Later, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle decide to prank him by buying every single box of cookies in a radius of several blocks. To their horror, J'onn turns into a raging maniac hellbent on quelling his munchies. After calming down, he used his abilities as a shapeshifter to literally rip out the affected bits of his body, and later enjoyed a more normal relation with the snack, though he still greatly enjoys it.
