* Another fairly horrific version is the "Gluttony" victim in ''Film/{{Se7en}}''. Spaghetti, because it's usually full of fat and starch, is often a comfort food. In the film, it's a murder weapon.

Added DiffLines:

* A comfort ''drink'' pops up in ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'', with Jane's habit of bringing people tea whenever they're upset. (Or, just as often, when ''she's'' upset and attempts to cope by nurturing everyone else.)
-->'''Jane:''' Here, I brought you some tea.\\
'''Lizzie:''' Not sure I really ''deserve'' tea right now...\\
'''Jane:''' ''Everyone'' deserves tea.\\
'''Lizzie:''' Is it magic tea that tells me how to fix this?\\
'''Jane:''' It's... chamomile.\\
'''Lizzie:''' ''(smiling)'' I'll give it a shot.

Added DiffLines:

* Studies have shown that sugars and fats provide a dopamine rush...and that the parts of the brain that respond to this are ''exactly'' the same ones that respond when "sugars and fats" are replaced with drugs and alcohol. In fact, dieting causes a withdrawal-like response!

Added DiffLines:

* Individuals with Bulimia will often select comfort food while on an eating binge. This is because for many people Bulimia is an unhealthy reaction to stress, depression, and feelings of helplessness. Binging provides a sense of comfort and security for many people, so selecting comfort food is a rather natural choice. Ice cream is especially popular, in part because it... Erm.... "comes up" smooth.
