* When Series/AceofCakes Duff Goldman was on ''Series/IronChef America,'' the Battle he faced Michael Symon in had Chocolate and Chillis as the theme ingredients (meaning BOTH had to be used together in a dish; it could be either sweet or savory, though, no all one-or-the-other). Though mixing chocolate and chillis is an old tradition in Central America and Mexico going back to pre-Columbian times. Chilli-flavored chocolate remains fairly common in these parts and is recognized in the US as "Mexican" chocolate. Even the famed Tabasco brand came out with a chocolate bar spiced with their famous sauce because of the increasing Hispanic interest.

* Michigan State University's on-campus Dairy Store has a tradition of maintaining a flavor for each member of the Big Ten Conference (including hated rivals Michigan). When the University of Nebraska joined, the store had to come up with a new flavor; because Nebraska is the ''Corn''huskers, they decided to make the flavor with sweet corn and butter, including whole grains of corn. The reaction in East Lansing was puzzlement when the flavor was announced, and then general approval when it was released. (The flavors for Rutgers University and the University of Maryland, joining in 2014, took a while to announce, generating speculation they might follow the same path--both feature red as their main color and neither has a particularly [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutgers_Scarlet_Knights appetizing]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryland_Terrapins mascot]], at least not for ice cream.[[note]]Yes, "terrapins"--freshwater and estuary turtles--are perfectly edible and actually good to eat, but as ice cream? They wouldn't even try that on ''Iron Chef''.[[/note]]) The flavors were eventually settled as a cherry/chocolate/brandy flavor for Rutgers (drawing on the scarlet), while Maryland got a chocolate/toffee flavor (because of the alliteration between "toffee" and "terrapin," but also hinting at "turtles"--chocolate-and-toffee-covered pecans, which the Dairy Store couldn't used because the term is trademarked).

* Many [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Gross Foods"]] on ''{{Neopets}}'' are combinations of food that should not be combined, like "Bacon and Eggs Ice Cream", "Hot Dog Flavoured Yoghurt" and "Mashed Potatoes with Strawberry Sauce". The rest include things that shouldn't be in food at all, like slime, snot, dung and maggots. Your pet will also comment on [[LethalChef how horrible it tastes]] if you feed these foods to them.

Added DiffLines:

* The [=BBC=] series ''Back in Time for Dinner'' attempts to tell us about social history through food, with an ordinary family preparing and eating food typical of a given year in the 20th century. In keeping with social trends, this involved the mother doing most of the cooking. Bizarrely, though entertainingly, the producers chose to cast a family where the mother is, by her own reckoning as well as her family's, a terrible cook (truly, you have never seen anyone struggle with a simple tin opener the way she does!). And she doesn't get any better as the series progresses, either. The relief was obvious when they reached the 1980s and the progression in social trends allowed the father, who ''is'' a good cook, to take over preparing the meals. There was also considerable relief when the sequel ''Further Back in Time for Dinner'' furnished them with a maid to cook for them - unfortunately, this arrangement was only temporary, and the Cordon Bleugh Chef was soon back in charge...

* ''VideoGame/Ōkami'' introduces us to an Oni chef, who sends the disguised protagonist out to fetch various monster bits to make an appetizer for his boss. Upon making the dish, the chef declares that it is the perfect appetizer because anything else will taste excellent in comparison.

* ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'' and its ExpansionPack ''Off The Record'' allow Chuck and Frank to blend pairs of consumable items into a blender and see what sort of mixed drink pops out. They clearly know at least what they're doing with it, since they're already familiar with mixing drinks from the word go. Reasonable combinations usually give useful benefits: for instance, an apple plus a melon equals an Energizer, which is effectively an InvincibilityPowerUp as well as [[HyperactiveMetabolism full health]]. However, experimenting by throwing together some positively repulsive combinations gives you the dreaded Randomizer, which heals for a modest amount but also causes Chuck or Frank to [[VomitIndiscretionShot puke uncontrollably]] for 30 seconds, as well as fumble whatever item they're holding and drop it. Sure, it might ''occasionally'' give you the effect of one of the other drinks, but anyone who jams a raw fish and an ice cream sundae into a blender deserves what they get.
