* One of the stories in one of the ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' books revolves around the characters' favorite soda flavors. Most of them are innocuous, albeit strange flavors for soda: mouthwash, yams, grape jam, chicken, and squash. Mrs. White's favorite, however, tastes like ''floor wax'' (as in, that's what it's actually ''supposed'' to taste like). Maybe she thinks of it more as a [[http://www.hulu.com/watch/61320/saturday-night-live-shimmer-floor-wax dessert topping]]?

* ''Literature/RodAlbrightAlienAdventures'': In book 3, while Rod is traveling on the ''Ferkel'', he and Madame Pong try to program the ship's food system with things that are edible to humans. Color and texture are easy, but taste is not, and Rod specifically mentions that its first attempt at chocolate chips tastes like "a combination of chicken, blueberries, and earwax". He then notes that he's just guessing on the last part - he's never actually tasted earwax. "But this stuff had a bizarre and horrible undertaste, and that's as good a way to describe it as any."
