** In another episode, Mr. Barkin is filling in for [[NoodleIncident yet another absent teacher]] who "made a mistake many first-year teachers make -- she ate the cafeteria meatloaf". The class [[ReactionShot reacts with horror]].

This trope even applies to {{Mascot}}s and {{NonHuman Sidekick}}s more often than not: they'll be unwilling to eat organ meats, for example, even though in real life wolves and most other predators will go for organ meats first. Likewise, dogs will be averse to animal rinds/skins--again in sharp contrast with real life.

* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', anything Calvin's mom cooks tends to come out looking like a plateful of green sludge. Calvin disdainfully calls it "toad stroganoff" in one SundayStrip. However, in one strip, Calvin's mom tells him that it's "spider pie"; Calvin, being a NightmareFetishist, is persuaded to taste it again and actually approves, though his dad still doesn't want to try eating it.

She tries the same trick in another strip, calling stuffed peppers "monkey heads."

* Johanna from ''Webcomic/{{Sire}}'' is an enthusiastic chef for the lineage children at the London haven. She is descended from [[SweeneyTodd Mrs. Lovett.]] and the subject of her ingredients is one that causes characters concern.

* In ''Literature/{{Parrotfish}}'' Sebastian is the only one who Grady knows who actually eats the school's disgusting hot lunches. The "meatloaf with mashed potatoes" is rather nondescript and covered in brown goo that is supposed to be gravy.

* The French film ''L'Enquete Corse'' has a scene where the protagonist eats a Corsican dinner and compliments the chef, asking what the meat was (he says it tasted like veal, but better). A kid says it was rat and is shushed by another guest who reassures him: it's actually hedgehog.

** According to Old Ben, one butcher in Freeside made a [[IncrediblyLamePun killing]] off of this practice, and sold it cheaply enough to put Ben's father's shop out of business. This continued until people started getting "shakes" (strongly implied to be Kuru) from eating it, including the butcher himself, who eventually died from the disease.

* Creator/TeamFourStar's ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' campaign has this as a RunningGag courtesy of "Grammy", the sea hag galley chef the group meets in the first session. In that session she served the group chicken soup and challenged them to identify the SecretIngredient. It's not love, [[spoiler:it's seagull.]] Later on she serves them pie containing [[spoiler:pufferfish -- toxin included]] and serves Eloy tomato soup with [[spoiler:still-screaming mandrake]]. Of course, as horrible as her food may sound, if the players can make their Constitution saves they tend to get some nice bonuses out of it: the pie granted +1 Armor Class, for example.
