* Gaoians of ''Literature/TheJenkinsverse'', like the vast majority of aliens, are immune to the intoxicating effects of alcohol. However, they can produce the same symptoms after eating turkey meat.

* 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."

* AlanDeanFoster's Literature/HumanxCommonwealth is littered with strokes of genius, and Alien Catnip is regularly referenced as a consequence of {{Playing With}} NoBiochemicalBarriers - the majority of species can breathe the same atmospheres and eat the same food, they just don't always find it comfortable. It's the little things that get them - for example, the racoon-like Tolian race is unaffected by alcohol, and instead gets smashed on the lymphatic fluids of certain animals. One that drives drug cops of all races into conniptions is that just about every race has something that some other race considers high-value drugs as part of their essential diet.

* Hivers in ''SwordOfTheStars'' have taste and smell organs that are wired in a way that strongly fermented human foods, especially cheese, becomes like mild narcotics to them. It's mentioned in the supplementary novels that cheese is one of humanity's main exports to the hivers.

* In ''Film/{{District 9}}'', the alien Prawn have a voracious hankering for cat food. Black markets spring up for the stuff and all. We can speculate they get high on tyrosine or taurine in the fish protein -- other food would do it, but cat food is good -- and cheap. Or it is just using the RuleOfFunny.

* In ''Literature/SpaceBeasts'', various Earth foodstuffs are dangerous to Extra Terrestrials and Magical Creatures, first of all [[IntelligentGerbil Intelligent Herons]] The Aves have extreme reactions whenever they eat strawberries, they don't get addicted, but for the male Aves they seem to get a similar effect to when you mix ecstasy with Viagra. The Male Aves get a painful long-lasting erection and also they get a fierce desire to hump anything they can get their hands on. Zander ends up assaulting his own wife in public after tasting a strawberry, and Revel rapes the Ant Girl Yin after she force-fed him some strawberry champagne; both felt extreme shame and embarrassment once they snapped out of it.
** As for [[TheFairFolk Magical Races]] (Or more specifically their half human descendants) each species of Fae has its own drug: for Elves it's wasabi, for Fairies, peanut butter, for goblins, bananas, to half human/half Fae these addictions are extremely powerful, the only way to bring them 'back down to Earth' when they give into their addiction is through physical pain, normally that means a spanking.
*** Some species of Humanimal (Specifically Prehistoric Species like Dinosaurs) can be extremely sensitive to modern foods. Rodan the Pteranodon Man finds that Chocolate has the an effect on him similar to the effect that strawberries have on male Aves. He almost gets demoted when he rapes an enemy girl soldier.
