Hunger is a very powerful force. A starving person may degrade themselves for a scrap of food; a [[TheHedonist hedonist]] will do so for a teaspoon of cous cous. [-Mmm... delicious-] ''[-cous cous.-]'' Even a person with a full stomach may have a hard time resisting a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal marvelously mouthwatering meal or morsel]].

** A drug-sniffer dog is harder to fool, however; they tried hiding (legal, if that makes any sense) contraband in a false bottom of a suitcase filled with food, with the assumption that, if the dog signaled to his handler that the bag was suspicious, the handler would see the food but no contraband and assume a false positive. It didn't work; the handler discovered the false bottom no sweat, and it was noted that a sniffer dog could be trained to disregard food.

* Often used by restaurants as a particularly canny form of marketing: they'll make sure the kitchen vents onto the nearby street so that people walking by on their way somewhere else will just happen to catch a whiff of that freshly cooking food...

* During the Spider-Verse story line in Marvel comics, a family of vampire-like predators called the Inheritors hunt various iterations of Spider-Man across alternate realities. These realities mirror a number of ways Spider-Man has appeared across different eras and medium (comics, three-panel newspaper strips, TV, etc.). The reality based on the Hostess Fruit Pie ads has one of the Inheritors momentarily distracted by the delicious fruit filling, but he is powerful enough to overcome its (otherwise irresistible in that reality) siren song of sweetness.
