* During WorldWarTwo, the Swedish Army referred to its rations as "food and potatoes", since the potatoes were usually the only thing that was identifiable, and the rest... well, if you could figure out what it was, you'd wish you hadn't. For reference, seagulls and crows were two of the ''least'' objectionable wartime fillers.

* Mockolate on ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Monica is asked to come up with recipes for it while the company awaits FDA approval. (It doesn't) And the taste?

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the standard meal in low-end taverns and "potshops" in and around [[TheNarrows Flea Bottom]] in King's Landing is "brown", a stew made by boiling whatever the cook could buy, find or scrounge that day into unidentifiable goop. People reduced to actually eating brown generally know better than to ask what went into it. Over the course of the series, cats, dogs, gulls, feral pigeons, dead horses... and quite a few [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies inconvenient individuals]] (or body parts of questionable freshness) end up in the stewpots. Worse, it's clear that this... delicacy-and-disposal-method... has been around for ''at least'' a century. Meeting a sellsword who admits to ''liking'' (and really missing) authentic King's Landing brown is enough to make Tyrion lose his appetite.

** In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' however, Strange Meat and Human Flesh are different items. Disturbingly enough, Strange Meat (and Strange Meat Pie) is actually a fairly commonly-found food item.

** In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' however, Strange Meat "Strange Meat" and Human Flesh "Human Flesh" are different items. Disturbingly enough, Strange Meat (and Strange Meat Pie) is actually a fairly commonly-found food item. It's implied that Strange Meat is human flesh deliberately prepared in such a way as to disguise it as something else, so that it can be sold to people who don't realize what they're buying.

* Discussed for [[PlayedForLaughs laughs]] in ''Literature/LoyalEnemies''. In a village, the first thing Veres does is buy a whole basket of stuffed pierogies, while Shelena purchases a barbecued lizard. When dragon Gloom asks werewolf Shelena if she's considered that she's eating a distant relative of his, she snarks that, well, Veres isn't exactly considering that he's eating Fluffy over there. After a while, Gloom pulls her aside and asks if, well, those pierogies were ''really'' stuffed with Fluffy. Shelena's answer? How would she know which particular dog that was.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has the classic episode "Joker's Favor" where the worlds Buttmonkey, Charlie Collins, has had the worst day of his life, which is topped off by his wife making meatloaf that night. Of course, after a run-in with the Joker that ends up haunting him for two years before the matter is finally resolved, his wife's meatloaf is looking pretty good.

--> '''Charlie''': ''Home''. Never thought that could sound so good. Wonder what Bonny is making for dinner. Right now ANYTHING would be good, even meatloaf.
* The unfinished ''MissionHill'' episode "Supertool" had its b-plot start out with Kevin trying to use the bathroom at school to brush his teeth to get rid of the aftertaste of the schools "Nutrition Loaf". Toby remarks that atleast its better than the even lower quality "Behavior Loaf".

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8240089/17/Mortem-Cantor Mortem Cantor]]'':
-->Harry glanced over the different choices, trying to decide which would be the least likely to taste like shit. He decided upon a salad, because it was the only thing he could recognise at a first glance. And at least it looked fresh (probably because it was completely untouched by everybody else; ''heaven forbid eating anything green'') unlike the different selections of meat, none of which Harry could identify. He refused to touch any of ''that''; it could be something gross, like road kill, and nobody would ever notice.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' had an episode where the cafeteria lady was dumping rat poison into the dessert. In another episode (Season 6), Buffy starts working at the "[[BurgerFool Doublemeat Palace]]" and finds [[SoylentGreen a human finger in the meat grinder]]. This ends up being a bait-and-switch: the finger was there because a demon killed someone, but the meat was more mundane. [[spoiler:Except that it wasn't meat at all - it was veggieburger ''flavored'' with beef and chicken fat. Fattening cardboard. Charming.]]
