* "Weird meat" in ''{{Avernum}}'' comes from a variety of sources, of which the ''least'' disturbing is giant lizards used as livestock. At least one example ([[BigBad Garzahd's]] "pantry") is apparently humanoid in origin, maybe even [[ImAHumanitarian human]]. However, all of it can be eaten without harm.

* Being in the same universe, both ''Videogame/FallenLondon'' and ''Videogame/SunlessSea'' have a couple notable ones:
** A lot of the stuff Mr. Hearts sells is unnervingly odd, and not just because it looks like someone ripped it off a StarfishAlien using very dull knives. It has been known to walk out of the freezer on its own volition, attracts bugs like nothing else, will practically hypnotize you into eating it and you will probably be violently sick afterwards.
** Rubbery Lumps outside of Mutton Island tend to be these, as they don't have access to the secret ingredients they have (an undisclosed sea monster) and thus have to make do with any oceanic beast that the fishermen bring in. A bad batch of Rubbery Lumps will leave you smelling like rotten fish for a long while, along with giving you horrible food poisoning that'll leave you puking for days. A good batch is, surprisingly, delicious. [[spoiler:And also comes from eldritch sea urchins called Lorn-Flukes that willingly donated it, because those who eat them and die afterwards will turn into Drownies]].

* In the DaveBarry novel ''Literature/TrickyBusiness'', the band of the cruise ship suspects that the cook is just reheating the same food over and over again rather than actually cooking anything. So they test the theory by hiding a laminated baseball card in one of the buffet trays, then coming back every day afterwords to see if the card was still there. When the events of the story begin, the baseball card had been a part of the generally untouched buffet for a week.

** {{Jeopardy}}: Early in the 1997-1998 season, there was a category "It Takes Like Chicken," where contestants had to identify unusual types of meat, such as those from snakes, frogs and alligators.
* Mockolate on ''{{Friends}}''. Monica is asked to come up with recipes for it while the company awaits FDA approval. (It doesn't) And the taste?

* ''{{SCTV}}'' - kiddie show hosts Mrs. Falbo and Mr. Messenger do a show in the state penitentiary. At lunch, Falbo asks the guy serving chow "Do you have anything besides beef stew? I'm allergic to beef." He replies "Don't worry, lady, there ain't any beef in it!" Mr. Messenger says "I'll have lots, please!"

* ''Series/YesMinister‎'' has the Euro-sausage standardisation incident in the Christmas special "Party Games". British sausages contain too high a proportion of rusk, and the "meat" they contain is (accurately described, at least for cheaper suppliers) unpalatable abbatoir waste and scraps, so the EU attempts a ban; the resulting political hubbub gives Jim an opportunity to raise his profile and take advantage of an unrelated political crisis to become PM.

* In ''{{Doug}}'', Magic Mystery Meat was served to unwilling students. In a [[SubvertedTrope subversion of the trope]], in one episode Doug was [[FakeMemories being overly nostalgic]], and went so far as to believe that Magic Mystery Meat was not only edible, but tasty as well.
