* Remember seeing that all delicious, golden-brown maple syrup being poured over fluffy pancakes or waffles, cascading over a pat of butter and some nice blueberries or fresh-cut strawberries, encouraging you to go to your local breakfast place ''right frickin' now''? That's actually motor oil. It runs better than real maple syrup.

** There was a similar article in a ''{{Creator/Nickelodeon}}'' magazine about food photography. The photographer they were interviewing explained that the bun is hand-picked out of several other buns, and sometimes extra sesame seeds are glued on for show. Ketchup and mustard are applied artfully via eyedropper.

* On stage, food props are almost always real food of some kind (if not the food they're supposed to be) because actors have to eat it onstage. It usually is intentionally made to taste awful so the actors wont eat too much and it can be re-used multiple nights. Alcohol, however, is almost invariably fake because of the hazards of the actors getting drunk in the course of performing the show (usually, dark liquors like whiskey will often be iced tea, lighter drinks like beer are apple juice, and wine is, of course, non-alcoholic grape juice. Obviously these can be subbed out for something more to the actor's tastes, all the way to simply water with food coloring.)

*** Greek restaurants, traditionally, do not have menus. Diners are led through the kitchen and invited to lift pot lids to decide on a meal. In places where health laws prevent such tours, there is often a wall of photos of all of the dishes to help diners choose. Usually the experience is WYSIWYG.

* In some productions of ''Theatre/{{Oliver}}'' applesauce stands in for the gruel eaten by the workhouse orphans in the opening scene. It's easy to "set up" (no cooking required), easy to clean off of prop bowls and spoons, is readily gobbled by a group of 8-14-year-old kids, and looks "truly disgusting" from the audience.

* In a short on ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision'', Lisa complains that the Barfy Burger she is nothing like the one in the picture hanging on the wall. Barth defends himself, saying her burger is not only just like the burger in that picture, it '''is''' the burger from that picture. How long ago said picture was taken is best not contemplated.

* Subverted in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse for Tony Stark by a unique aspect. WordOfGod is that all the nibbles he kept eating and offering to the other people were unscripted, it was just RobertDowneyJr kept eating on set, so it was more a case of ThrowItIn.

* In ChristinaAguilera's video for "Candyman," there's a scene of her drinking a strawberry milkshake. As mentioned above, milk is notoriously hard to film, and there were several attempts to make the perfect shake. They ended up using a glass of pink paint.

* There's a scene in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' where MichaelJFox's character is supposed to do a SpitTake while drinking gin - in reality, the flask was filled with water. Amusingly, production decided to play a prank on him during one take, replacing the water with ''real'' gin. Fox, who was teetotal, did a spit take for real.
