* In ''Literature/AncillaryJustice'', Radchaai have strong opinions about what does and does not qualify as "tea". Most of what's served in "uncivilized" space doesn't.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'': In ''Aqua Ducks", Gryo Gearloose invented a new type of health drink that, in Launchpad's words, tasted like "old tires." It turns out vulcanized rubber was a major ingredient.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/RatedAForAwesome'' episode "Sleep Smart", Cashola Company releases a nasty potato flavor soda (that only [[FunnyForeigner Lars]] seems to like) and has to resort to having subliminal messages played on TV to hypnotize people into buying it.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Drop Beat Dad", Sour Cream's biological father (and Greg's old manager) Marty tries to shill Guacola, a guacamole-flavored soda, at Sour Cream's rave. The stuff resembles green slime and everyone in the audience hates it (with the exception of Sour Cream's half-brother Onion, for some reason).

* The very first lines spoken in ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}'', in a crappy diner in the middle of nowhere:
--> '''Elijah Snow:''' Coffee tastes like your dog took a leak in it.
--> '''Waitress:''' Dawg's gotta go someplace.

* Instant Coffee (brewed and then freeze-dried and packed) has a very strong reputation for this, at least in the U.S. Then again, if you find yourself needing instant coffee (i.e.: [[MustHaveCaffeine you need the coffee]], but lack the time or money for a properly brewed cup), then BeggarsCantBeChoosers. The trend pretty much started in WorldWarII where time and space constraints meant the troops had to settle for instant "Cup o' Joe". In Europe and Asia, it's a different story. Instant coffee is actually the main type of coffee consumed at home, even in places like France where food and drink is SeriousBusiness. The instant brands sold there do tend to be of higher quality than the kind Americans are used to. On the other hand, instant tends to dominate in markets like the U.K. and Japan, which have historically been tea cultures and simply may not know any better, and which have tea-brewing infrastructure (read: super-fast boiling kettles) that make making instant coffee very easy.

** And none of these hold a candle to the awful that is truck stop or gas station coffee. Name a mistake made in the brewing process; cheap ''robusta'' beans of dubious quality, too hot of water, too fine or coarse a grind, machines that are never cleaned well, the pot standing too long on the hot plate, etc.

** And none of these hold a candle to the awful that is truck stop or gas station coffee. Name a mistake made in the brewing process; cheap ''robusta'' beans of dubious quality, quality that have spent who knows how long in a storage closet, too hot of water, too fine or coarse a grind, machines that are never cleaned well, the pot standing too long on the hot plate, etc. Chances are ''several'' of these are in play. At least it's cheap, and if you have to drink it, you're definitely in need of it.
