* [[LiteralMetaphor Incredibly literal]] example in C.S. Lewis's ''Literature/TheScrewtapeLetters''. Demons feed off the souls of the damned (along with other demons who screwed up), and the worse the soul is, the better it tastes. [[CompleteMonster Real monsters]] like Casanova and Hitler are delectable, whereas petty sinners make poor meals and atheists are just plain tasteless (though they're far more common than the monstrously evil ones, since it's way easier to tempt a man into committing multiple comparatively minor sins and/or rejecting God than it is to tempt them into utter depravity. For this reason, Screwtape advises Wormwood to [[BoringButPractical just focus on wrapping his 'patient' up in petty, worldly concerns]] rather than aiming high and potentially causing a MyGodWhatHaveIDone that could send the patient to heaven).

* This is apparently the case in the ''BatmanVampire'' trilogy, and is specifically brought up in the second part, ''Bloodstorm''. A newly risen vampire, a mob boss who says he couldnt stand the sight of blood when he was alive, goes on a rant about how now there's nothing more alluring in the world. [[spoiler: When Batman himself finally succumbs to bloodthirst and drains the Joker, this turns out to be true]].

* Silverwolf's Harry Potter fic, ''The Twelve Disasters of Christmas'', has list of reasons to join Voldemort that include [[spoiler: "You know you want to join Voldemort. If you do, he'll give you candy canes. "Joining Lord Voldemort is good for the digestive system."]], and other food related enticements.

* In ''Literature/TheBlissBakery'', all magical bakers can make baked goods taste heavenly. The evil ones use this for their evil means, of course. In the first novel, [[spoiler: aunt Lily bakes for the children, and it turns out the (delicious) food makes them unable to tell or otherwise inform their parents about her "visit".]]

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''Manga/TentaiSenshiSunred''. 'BigBad' Vamp often involves food in his speeches, because cooking is his hobby (he's actually a very good cook, according to his 'mortal nemesis' Sunred). He is liable to fill awkward moments by talking about cooking, and the anime gave him his own cooking segments.
-->'''Sunred:''' You guys should really just give up the 'WorldDomination' business and open a restaurant.

[[spoiler: When Batman himself finally succumbs to bloodthirst and drains the Joker, this turns out to be true]].



* This is the plot for the horror movie ''TheStuff'', which revolves around a mysterious white substance, similar to ice cream, which is found underground. People discover that the Stuff is incredibly tasty and addictive, and virtually free of fat on top of it. Unfortunatly, it turns out that the Stuff is NOT organic, but actually a kind of hive mind parasite. The Stuff isnt digested, but builds up in the eaters body, until enough is present, turning the eater into a TechnicallyAliveZombie.



* One ''PennyArcade'' strip mentioned that Tycho had once worked as a telemarketer, and had been extremely good at it because he combined his misanthropy with the job. He enjoyed calling people up and bothering them during dinner, and says that every moment was sweet "like a juicy orange".



* In the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode "Odds Man In", Dr Drakken uses a chain of gourmet cupcake shops to disguise his new strategically placed lairs, much to the shock and disappointment of the heroes, who had been eating them throughout the episode. In another episode, he intends to brainwash the American military by putting mind-control serum in their sandwiches.
