In Berlin, weissbier mit schuss is popular. This is a wheat beer with flavoured syrup added. This gives the head an unusual stiff texture. One popular syrup flavour is woodruff, which makes it taste medicinal. It also makes it bright green.

This oddity is from the Netherlands. Are these crisps weird to anyone else or am I just conservative when it comes to food?


Mmm, I wouldn't say this is odd. I think this is not the weirdest chip flavour we've seen on this thread. To be honest, it looks quite appetizing. Though I haven't tried those, my guess is that it tastes like bacon flavoured chips.

However, these two are a bit weird to me. Probably posted before and they're from Japan (obviously).

Strawberry flavoured chips. At first sight, this seems awful. It's one of these combinations that doesn't make sense to me, but you never know. Maybe it's excellent.

And Pepsi flavoured chips. I would give it a try, just out of curiosity, to see if they actually taste like Pepsi or not.

They sound weird, but I would agree with @kegaumongo that from looking at them that they probably taste like bacon.

They are Cheetos, but as long as they aren't salty, the corn and strawberry combination could be alright. I can't say the same for the Pepsi sticks.

Please don't ask me how I found this next item.

http://bna-art.s3.amazonaws.com/www.bootsnall.com/articles/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/fish-chips-gelato.jpg

Who here would try this, and eat the whole thing? I would, if only it was dairy-free.

Also, it's apparently available exclusively in Australia, so @DrElmer, I'm counting on a review from you.

which contains egg nuggets:


I'm just going to assume that those are what chicken nuggets hatch from.

I searched for egg nuggets on Google, and I actually found a result via Yelp.

According to Yelp, this location has closed. At least now we know why.

I would consider it a weird flavor just because it's off the wall, but it's one of those flavors where the idea behind it is much more surprising than what it actually taste like. As others have said, odds are they taste like bacon chips.

In Berlin, weissbier mit schuss is popular.


Putting sweet syrup in beer. I expected this from the French, and perhaps the Dutch or the Scandinavians, but never the Germans. They respect their beer too much to contaminate its natural flavors.

However, the fact that they made cheese using beer....the same type of beer might I add....comes as no surprise to me.

My best guess would be that, since chocolate Cheetos exist alongside their strawberry counterparts, and since both flavors are exclusive to Japan, they were released in response to the popularity of Pocky.

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m1xvmbNgsy1qzb9hgo1_400.jpg

So in conclusion, they probably taste more like Pocky than they do what we know as Cheetos.

And Pepsi flavoured chips. I would give it a try, just out of curiosity, to see if they actually taste like Pepsi or not.


It has to be better than deep-fried Pepsi.

I take that back. I'll try just about anything deep-fried.

I would like to find this ice cream store. Four of their flavors are weird and the other four are even weirder.

100,000 views. This now has to be my most successful thread that has not ever been a sticky.

That I shall not deny. Cheese and ice cream may be cousins, but that doesn't make it acceptable to put them together.

I will, however, drink ice cream-flavored Pepsi if given the opportunity.

Apparently this is Australian, so we'll make @DrElmer try it and tell us about it.

It doesn't matter what the content of the meal is; anything with the word "floater" in it automatically sounds unappetizing. You could give me a whole plate of garlic fries topped with bacon and call it a floater, and I would probably be repulsed by it.

That stupid white stuff needs to go. It's blocking the deliciousness.

Stargazy pie is relatively conventional fish pie apart from, well look:


I didn't know there was such a thing as a "conventional fish pie", but I applaud the people who came up with the clever name.

I did a Google image search for "weird fish products" and everything that came up was a clothing product from the Weird Fish clothing store. I'm going to have to learn how to search more carefully.

I would like to find this ice cream store. Four of their flavors are weird and the other four are even weirder.


This was posted about a ways back, but I don't feel like looking for the page. I'd be interested in trying peanut butter curry and chocolate smoked sea salt, and I wouldn't object to trying hibiscus beet or carrot mango. Hell, even Jesus juice doesn't look too bad. I might even be so inclined to give secret breakfast and Elvis (the fat years) a shot, provided I was told in advance what flavors they actually were. No chance for government cheese. I don't fully trust the government or cheese.

What makes ice cream Pepsi different from regular vanilla Pepsi?

A couple bites would be alright, but the whole thing might be too much. I will agree with the popular consensus that it looks a lot better than spaghetti and cheese ice cream and it sounds better than government cheese.

The three finalists for the Do Us A Flavor competition were weirder.

Sorry, my mistake, these are the three finalists.

At least chicken and waffles was weirder than ham. The other two might be at about the same caliber of weirdness.

Who here would try this, and eat the whole thing? I would, if only it was dairy-free.


As would I, but I suffer from the same condition you do: I don't live in Australia.

How did you find that item?

However, the fact that they made cheese using beer....the same type of beer might I add....comes as no surprise to me.


"Dude, I was so drunk last night!"
"What'd you get drunk off of?"
"Cheese."

I love Germany.
