* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Tikka to Ride" when the crew winds up in an alternate Earth (where JFK's survival leads to an AfterTheEnd situation in American cities), they run across a random corpse, which a guilt-chip-free Kryten later cooks for Lister and Cat.
--> '''Kryten:''' Did I do wrong? I didn't get any error commands... Obviously I thought about it, because without my guilt chip or moral imperatives, I have nothing to guide me. But it seemed to me that if humanoids eat chicken then obviously they'd eat their own species; otherwise they'd just be picking on the chicken.
--> '''Rimmer:''' One minute you're down, the next you're right back up again.
--> '''Lister:''' I said I was enjoying that!
--> '''Cat:''' I knew it didn't smell right! Oh my god...
* In the second season of ''Literature/{{Gotham}}'', when Penguin finally snaps and [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor goes back to being a villain]] due to learning his stepmother and her kids killed his father, he kills the kids, cooks them, and serves them to the mother before killing her as well.

This subtrope of ImAHumanitarian and HumanResources seems to get off on that same impulse as the reveals of PoweredByAForsakenChild machinery or the connotations of EvilTastesGood: deep down we suspect that all the wrong and taboo things are actually the tastiest -- and perhaps They have banned the peons from indulging in them to keep them for Themselves.

* Run into a restaurant in the middle of nowhere in ''Literature/WaterMargin'', odds are it serves the guests by, well, serving the guests. This is not actually depicted as a particularly big deal, and the heroic bandits of Liangshan Marsh run several inns that operate on this principle - [[MightMakesRight if you're a mighty warrior, they recruit you, and if you're not, the mighty warriors have something special for their larders]].

* This is the second guaranteed fixture of ''Theatre/SweeneyTodd'' tellings after "throat slashing barber" - the bodies are then used to make Mrs. Lovett's meat pies, initially just for body disposal but often it then turns out that this just increases the flavor.

* Rumoured Rumored to have occurred in Chicago meat packing industry in Creator/UptonSinclair's ''Literature/TheJungle''.''Literature/TheJungle'', which currently provides the page quote. While conditions in the factories were horrid enough to cause the Pure Food and Drug Act, this specific allegation was never substantiated by Federal investigations, which is why it is not listed under the Real Life section.
