* Lutefisk, that Norwegian-Swedish combination of whitefish and ''lye'', can't be consumed with silver cutlery for this reason. Aluminium spoons aren't recommended, either: lutefisk will react with the spoon with evolution of hydrogen and precipitation of sodium hydroxyaluminate.

* This can happen if the dishes are extremely hot and the spoons are biodegradable (plastic). [[CaptainObvious It's generally a bad idea to eat the stuff afterwards, though.]] This isn't limited to biodegradable plastics. Very cheap non-biodegradable plastic spoons may not dissolve, but they can definitely soften and distort in near-boiling beverages (i.e., coffee, cocoa, etc.).

* With repeated exposure, sriracha can eat ''forklifts''. The manufacturing process for sriracha sauce, the popular Thai chili sauce often seen with green caps and a rooster on the bottle, has the vinegar-and-pepper mash stored in barrels and moved by forklift. Turns out sriracha seepage onto the lifting forks forces the company to replace them every few years thanks to how pitted and corroded they become.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TwoStupidDogs'' had the dogs and Red Riding Hood entering the Three Bears' house. Red tries to sample Papa bear's hot porridge, which not only disintegrates the spoon, but ''her entire arm'' as well.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' where Clam gets a sickness that makes him fall in love with [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Gretchen]], one of Lazlo and Raj's attempts at a remedy is soup made with water from Raj's Kafizzle River snow globe. The water from the Kafizzle River is previously established to be [[GrimyWater highly acidic]], so every time Lazlo spills a drop of the soup it eats through the floor. When Lazlo comments that it's like lava from the earth's core, Raj states that it's [[UpToEleven even more powerful than that]].
