** 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).

* ''SamAndFuzzy'' had a storyline where Sam refused to leave his apartment for a week due to severe depression from being fired from his job. As their food runs out, he ends up making this for dinner.
--> '''Sam''': You dont like my cooking?
--> '''Fuzzy''': Not when its just flour and water mixed together!
--> '''Sam''': Oh shut up and eat your Flour Paste!


Added DiffLines:

* Several episodes of ''TheSimpsons'' have the family eating indistinct grey slop, likely due to artist shorthand, since the food isnt supposed to be disgusting. One episode in particular had Homer try to make food from a giant pile of sugar he stole from a crashed tanker truck, with the result that not only did the food look like slop, it was nausiatingly sweet and full of debris and broken glass.

* The omelet from hell Latrine serves to King John in ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights''. There are intact eyeballs in it, and that's not the most visually disturbing part.

* Asuna's first cake from the first anime adaptation of ''MahouSenseiNegima''. The second came out looking much better. Appropriate, as she's an {{Expy}} of the above.
