* The children's book ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' (and the movie it inspired) are about this. The actual landscape isn't made of food, but (as you might guess from the name) the weather most certainly is. "Restaurants" lack roofs, and are mostly just nice places to sit while waiting to be fed by the sky.

* "Literature/HanselAndGretel" -- the fairy tale famous for its life-size gingerbread house. In older variants it's a house of plain old bread -- then the reason the stepmother wanted to be rid of them was a food shortage.

TruthInTelevision as there were '''severe''' famines, the first of which was the Great Famine of 131517, that lead to families being forced to abandon their children in the woods to fend for themselves or die trying and supposedly cannibalism was practiced, largely by the starving poor. Makes the story a lot darker, don't it?

* Many, many of the obstacles on Nickelodeon's ''[[DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]''. Some of the physical challenges qualify as well.

* The secret "good" ending of ''[[VideoGame/TwelveThirteen 1213]]'' [[spoiler: replaces the disaster that reduced the Earth to a seemingly-lifeless toxic wasteland... with one that turned it into a world made of candy, where the lead character rules as hyper-metabolic god-king for the rest of his life.]]

A fairly popular subtrope is to focus on sweets, probably in part because the concept of a land made of confectionery already has [[SugarBowl a certain amount of stock symbolism invested in it]]. [[CartoonCheese Cheese]] is also popular. Older variants, stemming from times when food shortages were commonplace, tended to have more variety in the foodstuffs. Its inhabitants, if there are any, might be AnthropomorphicFood themselves.

* The Darkness Orb quest arc of ''VideoGame/{{Dragonfable}}'' includes a raid on the Necropolis cafeteria. It's full of giant zombie [[RaisingTheSteaks apples, hot dogs, and slices of bread]] that say "[[{{Pun}} GRAIIIIIINSSS... GRAIIIIIINSSS...]]" The GenreSavvy PC wonders aloud why the necromancers thought this was a good idea.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' features an episode where Wart and Kay join Robin Wood and his band on a mission to rescue captives from Morgan le Fay's castle, which is made of food in hopes of luring children in. Unfortunately for Morgan, the smell of so many foods is so repulsive it utterly fails to be appealing.
