* Subverted in a Sprite ad. A boy drinks Sprite on a basketball court and then tries to dunk while a voicover says, (paraphrasing) "If you want to play like the NBA stars..." And he falls on his face. "...practice."

* Subverted in the ''WebAnimation/TwoMoreEggs'' short, "Hot Dip": The short starts with a boy struggling with his math homework, only for the mascot of Hot Dip to appear out of nowhere and offer him some. After trying it, he begins rapidly doing his homework...only to cut to a piece of paper with the word "math" written all over it with an F-. The boy is pleased with the outcome, however.

** Wow, I could get "menergy" just by going onto any online secondhand music retailer, searching for Patrick Cowley, and purchasing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46DiMfrz0bg the single]]. ;)
*** But would that make you SO ENERGETIC you could have FOUR HUNDRED BABIES who run as fast as KENYANS?



* [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Mintberry CRUUUNCH!!"]] Only the power of mint and berry combined can defeat [[CthulhuMythos the Dark One]].

* TheSimpsons episode ''King of the Hill'' parodies this with Powersauce bars. The initial plan for their ad campaign is to get Rainier Wolfcastle to climb Springfield's tallest mountain. When he refuses, they get a newly-fit Homer to do it instead.
---> '''Neil:''' ''New angle. Joe Schlub eats Powersauce bar, becomes world's mightiest man.''
---> '''Brad:''' ''It's believable. That's what I like about it.''

* Lightspeed energy bars were a running gag on JusticeLeague since TheFlash did a commercial for them. In it, he is fighting the Rogues and his speed runs out until a kid on a skateboard throws him a Lightspeed bar. In a later episode, Deadshot smuggles a ceramic gun onto the JLA watchtower by hiding the parts in Lightspeed wrappers.

* Another Chefboyardee example: Back when they made fun pasta shapes of every popular character, it made VideoGame/PacMan themed shapes, and [[WesternAnimation/PacMan the cartoon version]] of Pac Man appeared in a commercial, where the pasta proved just as good as Power Pellets at fighting the Ghost Monsters. [[CatchPhrase Thank goodness for Chef Boyardee]] indeed!
