** Mom tells Calvin that the icky stuff on his plate is monkey brains in order to get him to eat it. But now Dad can't eat it because it {{Squick}}s him out. There's a few other strips with the same theme, such as Mom telling him there's maggots in the soup instead of rice, or they're having spiders for lunch. Invariably, Dad will be too disgusted to eat while Calvin enthusiastically devours his food.

* ''{{Slayers}}'': In the light novel ''The Battle of Saillune'', Lina and Gourry are attacked by a number of lesser demons that possessed items of food, including a nasty tentacle monster that emerges from their squid stew. After the fight, they order more food, and Gourry requests they skip the squid stew -- though Lina disagrees, saying it'll take more than that to make her lose her appetite.

* On ''MarriedWithChildren'', Al discovers that the reason he couldn't buy Peg an anniversary gift is because everyone else in the family used it to make preparations for the anniversary dinner (ironically, Peg goes all out ''because'' she heard he was getting her something very nice and wanted to make sure ''her'' gift measured up). Al angrily declares that "the card got so full that when I tried to use it, it threw up!", then proceeds to make vomiting noises and gestures. At this, everyone promptly puts down their forks.

This trope is when a character had planned to eat a certain food, but changes their mind based on a conversation or experience that causes them to make a mental association between it and something nasty. The character doesn't [[LostMyAppetite lose their appetite]] ''entirely'', they just can no longer stand the thought of eating that ''particular'' thing.

** In another strip, it's played with. Calvin doesn't want to eat dinner, but Dad tells him it's a good idea, since it's a plate of toxic waste that will turn him into a mutant. Calvin gobbles it down, and Mom just glares. ** Once Mom brought home some jelly doughnuts, but Calvin didn't want one because they resembled giant bugs: "You bite into them and all their purple guts spill out the other end."
