* Subverted in ''GlassMask''. Maya is playing a character that's supposed to eat manju on stage. Some of the other actors, who aren't happy to be performing with her, switch the real manju with mud balls. Which Maya then eats anyway, since to do otherwise [[TheShowMustGoOn would disrupt the play]].

** While this was kept for the Hogwarts feast, in the HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince film, there was at least one instance of one of the Slug Club events (the small party for the inner circle) where the food (namely chocolate cake) was revealed and was replaced with every take.

* In ''{{Ghost in the Shell}}'', Cyborgs who do not need to eat can still eat food that looks real but isn't. It's still edible and nutritious, but tastes awful, at least to normal humans and to the Major, who finds the fake sandwiches (made from gluten and amino-acid-based micromachines) disgusting, while Batou chomps them down several at a time. It's mentioned earlier in the series that, because of their Cyber-Brain, full-prosthetic cyborgs can alter their brains' perception of how the "fake food" tastes, allowing it to register in their augmented brain as having the same taste as the real thing, which is presumably what Batou is doing. He also mentions in S.A.C. 2nd Gig that cyborgs sometimes miss the real thing, and that's why they make novelty food specifically for people who are cyberized.

* This backfired in one of the films of "TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe"; the prop guys asked the director if he wanted the fake Turkish Delight for filming. The director said fake, meaning this trope. The prop guys handed Skander an ''inedible wire and fiberglass piece of candy''.

* In ''Literature/{{Incompetence}}'', Harry mentions that he once knew someone who photographed food for a living. Among the tricks used to make the food look more appetising include secreting a ''[[{{Squick}} boiled tampon]]'' on the plate.

* Domino's pizza is trying to avert this and have customers photograph their pizza for their advertisements instead of using any sort of fake food or camera tricks. [[http://www.showusyourpizza.com/ Their website]] has plenty of examples showing that they're trying their best to break away from this trope.

* During ''TotalDramaAction'', one of the challenges was to find a key Chris had hidden amongst a pile of styrofoam prop food. Owen eats his way through the pile, not realising its fake, and ends by burping up the key.
