There are foods whose names contain two words. The first word is an animal/person; the second word is a (body) part. But the food itself does not contain the named animal/person, nor does it contain the named (body) part.
Here’s the list I’ve been updating for a year or so…
bear claw: a wicked big donut-y thing you can get at Honey Dews in Massachusetts.
elephant ear: a big cookie-ish/pastry-ish thing.

buffalo wing: spicy chicken wing.
