[[caption-width-right:350:Whoa... they ''must'' be a couple!]]

Dates and sweets go together. And in anime, at least, the sweet of choice for sweethearts is the crêpe: fried dough rather like a thin pancake, folded with cream or other fillings in the middle and various toppings. For maximum ShipTease, they'll take a bite of one another's crêpes, or even lick each other's crepes off each other's faces, thus completing an IndirectKiss.

Compare to SweetheartSipping for the beverage version of this trope. SpaghettiKiss is the common American (and slightly naughtier) variant. [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant Despite the fruit's naturally sweet flavor, said crêpes rarely use dates as filling.]]



[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'', pictured above - [[LoveInterest Yuusaku]] takes a bite of [[{{Tsundere}} Taiga's]] crêpe, leading her to stuff the whole thing down [[MatchmakerCrush Ryuuji's]] throat out of [[IndirectKiss embarrassment]].
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' - Suzaku and Euphie in episode 5. No shenanigans.
* ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' - as part of the RunningGag of trying to get intimate with the title character, [[ShockAndAwe Misaka Mikoto]], [[SchoolgirlLesbians Kuroko]] always buys the same flavor of crêpe as Mikoto - and is horrified when Mikoto only exchanges bites with people who get a ''different'' flavor.
* In the ''Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami'' series, Yuu's family runs a crêpe stand -- when her MagicalGirl form is asked her name, the "Creamy" bit is taken off the stand's placard. We see young couples eating there on dates a few times.
* In ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'', [[{{tsundere}} Shimada]] demands that [[IdiotHero Yoshii]] take her out for crêpes, or she'll keep [[WrestlerInAllOfUs beating him up]] for calling her [[ACupAngst flat-chested]]. When he later ''does'' take her out, another LoveInterest comes along. They're both about to give him a taste of their crêpes when a [[PsychoLesbian Psycho]] [[SchoolgirlLesbians Schoolgirl Lesbian]] ([[StalkerWithACrush in love with Shimada]]) shows up and attacks him with ''[[ForkFencing throwing forks]]''. HilarityEnsues.
** In season 2 episode 2, all the girls do variations on this at the festival, including the main character's [[BrotherSisterIncest older sister]].
* This is done in ''VisualNovel/AkaiIto'' with [[MainCharacter Kei]] and Uzuki.
* In ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', Seishirou invites Fuuma to go get crêpes with him (having just finished blowing up a major train line and a large skyscraper). His reasoning is that if they are going to destroy all of Tokyo, then they might as well get to sample delicious foods first. It's very romantic, in a creepy way.
* Even if it never happens in the series itself, this is done in the cover of volume 12 DVD of ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5 [=GoGo=]'', with Syrup and Urara. [[http://pics.livejournal.com/stupendous/pic/0007y06e It's ADORABLE.]]
* Episode 3 of ''[[Anime/AllPurposeCulturalCatGirlNukuNuku Nuku Nuku Dash]]'' has an example.
* ''VideoGame/{{Amagami}} SS'' episode 11, at the amusement park.
* In ''Anime/DogDays'', [[EdibleThemeNaming Éclair]] and Cinque have crêpes at the fair in episode 11. No particular shenanigans, but they do call the crêpes by a made-up foreign name.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', when Tomoya Okazaki pretends to date his friend's younger sister, Mei Sunohara, he buys her a crêpe.
* In the anime version of ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'', Makoto and the Producer during their outing in an amusement park, much to her delight and his bemusement.
* In ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Mahiro and Cuuko have crêpes during their [[TheBeard fake date]]. Cuuko's ClingyJealousGirl cousin Cuune steals Mahiro's in order to try and ruin the date, but Cuuko offers him a bite of hers, making Cuune freak out over the IndirectKiss ([[NiceJobFixingItVillain that she caused]]).

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': Let's just say [[{{Tsundere}} Germany]] wanted to turn an outing with [[{{Keet}} Italy]] into a date, and thought dessert would help.
-->'''Germany''': "Have some tiramisu." The brunet turned as the blond approached on his right, holding up a fluffy layered dessert which appeared to be dipped in coffee on a plate, a spoon beside it.

* With crêpes being widely popular across Europe and somewhat of a national dish for the French and the Dutch, it's no surprise that it turns up in the YoungAdult novel ''Postcards From No Man's Land'' by Aiden Chambers when the young arrival from England, Jacob Todd, goes on a date with a Dutch girl who introduces him to different flavors and the Dutch word for cinnamon. The scene gets a MeaningfulEcho at the end when all of its subtle innuendo becomes an outright proposition for sex.

[[folder: Radio ]]
* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In "French Sadie Hawkins Day", stuck with the cheque at [[FrenchCuisineIsHaughty a fancy French restaurant]], a broke Miss Brooks orders Crepe Suzette to stall for time. [[spoiler: She has been asked out by Monsieur Leblanc, and in turn invited Mr. Boynton, Mr. Conklin and Walter Denton along. What Miss Brooks didn't know was that Monsieur Leblanc had invited her to the eponymous "French Sadie Hawkins Day". That is, it was the woman's responsibility to pay.]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* ''[[VideoGame/Persona3 Persona 3 Portable]]'' features this at rank 5 of Ryoji's Social Link; he and the female protagonist get green tea crêpes and eat by the riverside during the Kyoto field trip.
* ''Sono Hanabira Ni Kuchizuke Wo'': In the 5th game, Mai and Reo get crêpes together on a date.
* In ''VideoGame/AtelierSophieTheAlchemistOfTheMysteriousBook'', Tess sells a Date Ticket in her shop, and whoever earns enough points to buy it first gets to take her on a date. If you buy it, Sophie takes her out for crêpes.
