Talking about weird flavours... here's what I've stumbled upon lately at work!

Presenting: the Pineberry!

http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2010/4/1/1270122841640/Pineberry-001.jpg

Is it a strawberry? Is it a pineapple? Is it a conspiracy?

Or is it a bid by Waitrose to impress their new brand ambassador (a man best known for playfully messing with form and flavour: "It looks like an apple with a maggot in it, but when they bite into it, it's a chocolate glazed veal sweetbread with a tiny citrus straw!").

Yesterday the supermarket launched what they've dubbed the 'pineberry' - an "Alice in Wonderland-style fruit" as their press release has it. "Despite their extraordinary smell and taste similar to a pineapple, pineberries are still strawberries", Waitrose's PR machine explains. Perhaps taken with their Wonderland analogy, they go on to point out in winning doublespeak that the breeding of this exciting "new fruit" originated in the 18th century when the result of crossing different wild strawberries, 'Fragaria Chiloensis' and 'Fragaria Virginiana' produced 'Fragaria Ananassa', the base for all modern varieties. The fruit is being grown by these people for Waitrose.

How's that for talking about a weird flavour huh? =)

I doubt any of them can top barf!

I am inclined to agree with you.

Where do you get those?

Many of them are found in different countries, so they'd be relatively difficult to obtain.

As for the bacon syrup...

Presenting: the Pineberry!

I'm getting me a few of those just as soon as they cross the Atlantic.

A straw'bry that tastes like a pineapple??? O_O

This is an exciting discovery in the produce world! And those words probably aren't spoken too often... =)

No you are not, because I'm buying each and every one of them!

Not if I buy the pineberry industry first.

Going back to Jelly Bellies, it appears the newest addition to Jelly Belly's 50 official flavors is the chili mango flavor.

It's been a while since I've had an "official" assortment of Jelly Bellies, so I've yet to try this relatively new flavor. It can't be too bad if it made it straight to the list in such a short amount of time.

And for those of you showing an interest in the bacon syrup, you'll be pleased to know that the flavor comes in soda form as well; along with a few other odd flavors.

Chili mango flavor? It's about time they had a flavor that was both spicy and sweet! I find the regular cinnamon ones boring, and the sizzling ones are just plain spicy!

I want a chili mango jellybean!

After I saw the bacon Torani, the soda of the same flavor does not phase me. I'm still curious about the PB&J flavor though! Where can one go about finding that brand?

The brand is Lester's Fixins, and I read somewhere that you can find them at your local Rocket Fizz.

If you have a local Rocket Fizz, that is. If you don't, it's road trip time.

Those of you who clicked on the Lester's Fixins link will have noticed the two additional flavors not found in the picture. I'd post pictures of them, but I'd rather you just clicked on it so I wouldn't have to gather more images.

Anyone ever have an Aussie pizza before? I thought it was weird at first but then I actually found it to be delicious.

The toppings on an your traditional Australian pizza consist of ham, bacon, eggs, and tomato. If you've never lived in Australia, you probably would find this combination very strange.

That actually sound really good. Yes, I don't live in Australia, but the combo doesn't have such an amount of strangeness to me as you might think! The egg part reminds me a little of french toast, I have never had eggs on pizza but it still looks like something to try! As for the others, I've had those on pizza, and I think maybe even at the same time, so i'm well-acquainted with those. MMMMMMMMM

That chili mango flavor looks like it could be my new favorite.
