for:
-The situation where you don't want to finish this yogurt, but there is only one spoonful left, and you're not going to waste a spoonful of yogurt so you force this yogurt down.
-You're hungry for a hamburger, but your friends have decided to get hot dogs instead, so you are angrily eating this hot dog which fills your stomach but also stokes your desire for hamburgers.
-The sense of loss when you politely refrain from taking the last hot, delicious slice of pizza, but at the end of the party, you see that no one has taken the last slice and it is thrown out because it is now a cold, congealed mass of grease mixed with discarded napkins.

etc...

wunderbar!

how about:
-you crave something savory, but the only thing around to eat are desserts
-you have no desire to eat, but are eating because there will otherwise be no food for you later
-you think this food you're eating is interesting, but don't know why, so you are compelled to keep eating it until you realize it contains an ingredient you find repulsive, and now your experience is retroactively one of intense revulsion, and you raise your fist and curse the gods for this cruel trick they have played on you

You, person who can do a passable Werner Herzog impression, help create plausible but non-existent compound words!

In fact, wondering if I should concentrate on my German studies instead of diluting them with time spent on some of the, um, other German languages.

wow! the yogurt is gendered!

Weirdly, Joghurt is one of the only words in German that is actually non-gendered -- der, die, or das Joghurt are all ok.
