* ''Film/TheSantaClause'': Early in his tenure as Santa, when he's still refusing to get into the spirit of it, Scott doesn't touch the food. When a small child catches him not drinking the milk she's left out, he tells her it's because he's lactose intolerant. This becomes a BrickJoke when he returns to the house at the end of the film, and finds that she's remembered and left him a glass of soy milk instead.

* In ''PrepAndLanding'', one of the duties of the eponymous team is to check the milk and cookies to see whether they're up to standards. When Wayne is passed for a promotion, he takes it out on a Santa cookie and tries to bite its head off (although it's a little tough for him).

* ''Series/BobsBurgers'' - the kids leave milk and cookies as bait for a Santa trap - a hand snare in the refrigerator. Teddy gets caught in it while he's checking in on the house for them.

* On the Literature/{{Discworld}}, children leave out a pork pie and a glass of sherry for the Hogfather, and a turnip for the hogs that pull his sleigh. In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', when Death is subbing in, he can't eat or drink so his human sidekick Albert deals with the pies and sherry for him (particularly enthusiastically when it comes to the sherry).

The story also explains ''how'' Santa or his equivalent can consume all the goodies left out for him - symbolically, all pork pies are one pork pie. Except for the one like a turnip.

* In Creator/DavidSedaris's [[{{NPR}} "Santaland Diaries"]], he describes how he, as a Macy's elf, had to go through a routine with a MallSanta where he would find out what kind of cookie each kid was going to leave out and then claim it was Santa's favorite.

* The throwaway joke of the Christmas Day 1988 [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1988/12/25 strip]] of ''CalvinAndHobbes'' has Calvin telling his dad that he's leaving out a sandwich for Santa. Calvin then asks whether Santa would like some milk with it, and his dad responds, "I think "Santa" would rather have a cold beer," much to his mother's annoyance.
