* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', the gender division between Vorin men and women extends to them being forbidden from even eating the same types of food. Generally speaking, men's food is savory, and women's food is sweet.
** One of the protagonists mentions that he once snuck some women's food out of sheer curiosity, but found it much too sweet.

** Also, Rinkah plays with this trope a bit; while [[CaptainObvious not a male]], she, like Hayato, tries to hide her SweetTooth to make herself look stronger.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Hardcore martial artist Ranma Saotome is a subversion of this trope; he personally ''loves'' ice cream, but would not be caught ''dead'' saying he does, much less going to restaurants and ordering it. Fortunately, [[GenderBender he is able to turn into a cute girl when he comes in contact with cold water]]. This "{{curse|dWithAwesome}}" allows him to openly and gleefully order chocolate sundaes with a cherry on top in public; heck, he even uses his cuteness to scam ''free'' ice cream off the young and impressionable clerks!

It's treated with the gravity as a character from the 50's who doesn't like milk on his cereal.

** ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'': Izumi Taira will loudly declare how much he hates sweets when offered some and gulp down incredibly bitter drinks. This is because he's desperate to be seen as manly, being a short and cute-looking boy (especially for his age) with a feminine first name.

** ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'': Izumi Taira will loudly declare how much he hates sweets when offered some and gulp down incredibly bitter drinks. This is because he's desperate to be seen as manly, being a short and cute-looking boy (especially for his age) with a feminine first name. Unusually, his ostensible dislike of sweets is portrayed as immature instead of the other way around, and his character arc is only complete when he stops denying himself things that he likes independently of whether that makes him seem manly or not.
