How do you even juice a clam?


Clam juice is just clam broth, or the leftover water from steaming clams. Salt is often added for flavor. It really isn't as bad as it sounds, but you still wouldn't be wise to drink it by itself.

Jarritos is a well-known Mexican soda manufacturer.


Jarritos makes some of the best soda I've ever had. The lime, mandarin, and pineapple flavors are my favorites. I wouldn't call them bizarre, but they do taste different from most American sodas.

I see I have a lot of catching up to do with all the pages I've missed, but first, I have to bring up something I saw in one of the game ads... Wonka's Peel-A-Pop.

This is not a banana... and it's not string cheese in wax coating either . This is a popsicle! A popsicle with a peelable gummy outer layer! And I thought Fun Dip was a weird idea...

So it's just ice cream with a Laffy Taffy around it basically? Wonka really is running out of ideas. I had that same thought when they came out with Nerds Rope.

There's a burrito in my quesadilla.

Of course, you know that has to be a joke, because everyone knows the quesadilla is not a natural predator of the burrito. Thus, it must be a Quesarito.

Taco Bell just released these on Monday. Possibly also available for breakfast in the future.

This is candy available in Britain (don't know about elsewhere) taking the form of a sweet liquid you lick from a gobstopper. The presentation is what makes it odd though:


That color. I wouldn't mind licking something with a brainy consistency, but who would consider eating anything that shade of grey? Anything grey, for that matter.

Someone went a step further and baked cupcakes with detailed brains atop them.

Always remember to eat smart, kids, and that's the way to do it.

Wonka's Peel-A-Pop.


I can't tell if this is a terrible idea, or the most brilliant thing to happen to ice cream since they figured out they could put it in a cone. But wouldn't it be easier to just eat the ice cream and the peel altogether?

The rice in that quesarito looks more like Chipotle rice than Taco Bell rice. I think I smell a rivalry brewing.

That's no accident. The Quesarito has been a part of Chipotle's secret menu for quite some time. If Taco Bell's Quesarito was too different from Chipotle's, the avid fans would just continue get theirs from Chipotle.

Of course, you can always get an Enchirito for only $1.99.

A burrito inside of a quesadilla... it's Tex-Mexception! What will Taco Bell think up next... a burrito that's also an enchilada?!

...I'm already too late.

I had to check the nutrition facts for both of these fusiorritos. The quesarito tops out at about 650 Calories, at least as far as Taco Bell claims, while the enchirito is only at about 340-400. They both contain about 1400-1500 mg of sodium, the equivalent to about one and a half Big Macs (Calorie count: 550).

All I can be sure is, I definitely will not be eating one of those for breakfast!

Looks like a bit of both to me. =)

I always thought these were bizarre...

I still haven't mustered up the courage to actually try them... too weird for me! =P

To be fair, as far as burgers go, the Big Mac is a pretty wimpy unit. If you look at any Red Robin burger, you'll find that the sodium count is at least that of the Quesarito if not more, and the calorie count is always higher and sometimes double.

The Quesarito is more comparable to the Whopper in terms of calories. Actually, they're both reported to have 650 calories, so except for the 500mg sodium difference, they're basically the same meal.

Now a Whopper with cheese would be a different story entirely...

I always thought these were bizarre...


What surprises me most is that they're still around, meaning plenty of people must like them enough to keep buying them. I tried them once, and they weren't bad, but they weren't good enough for round two.

They are bizarre, though, there's no denying that. Like the Cheese-Top Burger, someone had to have come up with this idea, and somehow it gained approval for testing. Between placing cheese on top of a hamburger bun and flash freezing ice cream in liquid nitrogen, I don't know which is the more bizarre idea.

I LOVE Dippin' Dots. As in, if I see them out, (which isn't that often) I buy some. Yum.
