* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' has a restaurant chain that serves '[[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2008-08-08 smutto]]', a combination of corn smut (basically mold), and natto (fermented soybeans). It looks, smells and tastes so vile that even Schlock (who'll eat pretty much anything) hesitates before eating it.

** Subsequently, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1q_e6dEoWk someone cooked it in real life]]. It doesn't look all that much more edible, until it's rolled in a tortilla - which at least holds the goo in.

** Standard MREs no longer use freeze-dried mains due to the inconvenience of having to reconstitute them. The retort-pouches of later generation maintain better but still not great consistency and the general edibility is ever improving. The Omelette is still a universally reviled [[FunWithAcronyms Mush, Resemblance to Excrement]].

* Poutine evokes this, both in appearance in name.[[note]]Apparently descended from a French-Canadian term for pudding[[/note]] In execution, it is actually a mixture of cheese curds and gravy over fries.

* Casseroles of most any kind are a staple in large households. They're rarely pretty, but are usually the quickest and cheapest way to get everyone fed and often tastes good if the cook knows what they're doing.

** The freeze-dried ingredients of many [=MRE=] (Meal, Ready to Eat) rations also count, as many look rather bland and unappealing regardless of actual taste. Those who eat this food often refer to it as "Three lies for the price of one": it's not a meal, it isn't ready, and you can't eat it. Other backronyms include Meals Refusing to Exit, Materials Resembling Edibles, Meals Regurgitated by Everyone, and even Meals Rejected by Ethiopians.

* "Nutraloaf" is an American prison food commonly served to inmates with serious discipline/behavior problems. It consists of several different foods (meat, bread/grain, apples, eggs, vegetables, beans, etc.) mixed together and baked into a meatloaf-like shape. Inmates eat it off a paper plate instead of a tray, without utensils. It is so universally reviled that inmates in several states have filed lawsuits to stop its use, arguing that it amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.

A generous application of Tabasco sauce helps, allegedly.

** Another episode, which uses a {{Rashomon}} narrative has Marge serving a healthy new breakfast food called Muslix, which is pretty much just a sticky, blobby mess. She also gave Maggie Juicelix to drink, which turns out to have the consistency of glue.

* ''WebVideo/SpaceJanitors'', similar to ''Starship Troopers'' above, has rations that have the consistency and look of different kinds of thin pudding, served in a segmented tray. It's outright called "Mush". However, Imperial citizens regard eating good, proper meat on par with cannibalism (almost certainly a joke and not any political agenda from the team).
