* ''Film/JurassicPark'': John Hammond is shown to be quietly eating ice cream by himself after he finds out that Jurassic Park has failed and his grandchildren are lost and in danger. [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Dr. Sattler snaps him out of it.]]]] This is an inversion of a scene from the original novel (in which Hammond is [[AdaptationalHeroism far nastier than the later movie]]) which is used to highlight his childishness and LackOfEmpathy, since he's unconcernedly eating ice cream while hell breaks loose and everyone else is in life-threatening danger.

* Non-romantic example in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]". Rarity makes a puppet theater for Ponyville's Fall Foal and Filly Festival, but the harsh rejection she receives when her design proves unsuitable drives her to pig out on chocolates and vanilla-oat swirl ice cream, complete with "om nom nom" sounds.

* At a pool party in ''Webcomic/PreTeena'', Tess Keene comforts daughter Jeri when Jeri sees the new girl in town looks far better in a swimming costume than she does - and is getting on very well with Jeri's would-be boyfriend. Tess cheerfully tells her daugheter this is one of those things and we all have to face it sometime. Then she looks round and sees the new girl's ''mother'' looks good in a bikini. The scene cuts to Tess and Jeri sitting miserably at the poolside, wrapped in blankets and miserably sharing a very large tub of ice-cream.

* Almost subverted in ''Series/{{Gilmore Girls}}''. Lorelei tries to get Rory to invoke this trope after Dean dumped her, but Rory refuses as she seems to have taken the breakup very well. However, at the end of the episode, Lorelei finds her at home crying and orders food.

* ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' has an episode titled "Why Is Josh's Ex Eating Carbs?" Apparently after the breakup she buried her pain in doughnuts, which, considering how proud she is of her looks, is a big deal.
