* ''JudgeDredd'' has the Klegg's, a race of alien reptile mercenaries who demand to be paid in meat rather than money. When the insane tyrant Judge Cal seized power, he hired an army of Kleggs to do his bidding, and initially intended to feed them citizens but his right-hand man Judge Slocum managed to convince him that letting the Kleggs get a taste for human flesh would be a bad idea. Ironically, one of the few sane choices Cal made in his tenure as BigBad.

* In the United States, if friends or family members are helping you move, it's an expected courtesy that you'll provide food to everyone who's helping you, to the point it can sometimes be used to convince people into it. After all, it may be hours of labor, but hey, free stuff! Not offering food to the movers is considered quite rude.

* In ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', Kobayashi [[SweetTooth offered Elma sweets]] if she'd help Tohru defeat [[AxCrazy Iruru]]. Tohru also offered her 10 cream puffs if she would go away in her introductory chapter (it worked)

** DonutMessWithACop is the logical conclusion of this Trope. The pastry and the profession became so linked together thanks to a store policy of American Donut Chain Dunkin' Donuts, which offered free donuts and coffee to uniformed officers. As one of the first food stores in the country to have 24/7 operations, it was cheaper to feed the cops than to actually install security systems to prevent would be robbers, especially during the wee hours of the morning.

* ''Series/ICarly'': Sam can be bribed with food for a variety of reasons. Once, so that she'd leave resident ButtMonkey Freddie alone for a while, and earlier in her life, so that she'd be someone's boyfriend. Both times, the food in question was {{bacon|Addiction}}.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Homer and Apu", Homer got sick eating food from the Kwik-E-Mart, and when he got better, stormed into the store to tell off Apu, who offered him a pound of frozen shrimp as consolation. When Homer noticed that it wasn't actually frozen and smelled funny, Apu upped the bribe to ''two'' pounds, which [[TooDumbToLive Homer eagerly accepted]]. (He got sick again, naturally.)

Compare DeliciousDistraction, which is when food is used to distract, and IWasToldThereWouldBeCake and AndYourRewardIsEdible (you're congratulated with food even if you were not initially promised it), and ThroughHisStomach and TastesLikeFriendship, when food is used to cement a relationship. Can be invoked with TrademarkFavoriteFood. Contrast DeniedFoodAsPunishment. Can possibly be thrown to invoke a GoFetch situation.
