Italic the words that are sarcastic, that'll help.

I've came across this accidentally. This is definitely not the most bizarre thing I've ever seen, but I guess I wasn't expecting to see an energy drink called Street Fighter Dragon Punch.

Next one isn't that common, as far as I know, of course. It is a pancake flavored drink that is (or was, I'm not sure) sold in Japan. According to some of reviews I've read, it tastes pretty good. I've never eaten pancakes, but for some reason I would drink this beverage if I had the chance.

And speaking of pancakes, I've found a pancake flavoured Kit Kat. Apparently, it was a limited edition also sold in Japan.

Although I have the feeling this has been mentioned before, I'm going to post something just to make me smile, which is something I haven't done lately, and bacon products always do that. Bacon lollipops!

All of that looks good.

What flavor is the Dragon Punch?

I guess I wasn't expecting to see an energy drink called Street Fighter Dragon Punch.

On the way home from a far away event, I visited a Walmart in the middle of nowhere (I think the town was called Willows). I got a free sample of a Go Girl energy drink.

I thought it was funny that the employee handing them out was an older man with a mustache.

This Walmart also carried an extensive selection of Pop Tarts, which included their new Oatmeal Delights.

My mother was so intrigued by them that she bought a box.

Here's some energy drinks that are related to Kegau's drink.

Oh, we're doing energy drinks now?

To name a few. I also found some cannabis iced tea.

Any of these bringing back memories, Ernie?

It's Guangzhou all over again.

Why do they get to have all the fun flavors while we get stuck with the boring stuff?

If there's one thing MBFF teaches us about American food flavors, it's that we aren't exactly accepting of anything out-of-the-ordinary. When I say "we", I mean the general population of America.

But perhaps America's flavors are just as bizarre to the Japanese as their flavors are to us.

I see now. So they're similar to Lays Classic BLT flavor?

More onion-y, most likely, and you would probably be able to detect hints of other spices in there as well. Lays BLT just tastes like bacon and not much else.

Next one isn't that common, as far as I know, of course. It is a pancake flavored drink that is (or was, I'm not sure) sold in Japan.

Morinaga rendered obsolete by food enthusiast.

And speaking of pancakes, I've found a pancake flavoured Kit Kat. Apparently, it was a limited edition also sold in Japan.

That's an interesting container to put them in. Definitely bizarre in that aspect. That one side appears to be hexagonal. I wonder why they decided to put it in such an odd package rather than just a regular Kit Kat wrapper.

Although I have the feeling this has been mentioned before

Actually, you're the first to mention this one. It's one of the few bacon products that hasn't yet been brought up, which is amazing not only because we left one out, but also in the sense that we managed to cover so many of them already.

I don't know what it would taste like with all that sugar, though.

This Walmart also carried an extensive selection of Pop Tarts, which included their new Oatmeal Delights.

This just proves that they've completely run out of new ideas for Pop Tarts.

My god, man, that's a lot of obscure energy drinks. Does that very first one actually have cocaine in it or is it named that because it works as a less-harmful cocaine substitute?

The Duracell one looks fake, by the way.

To name a few. I also found some cannabis iced tea.

Ew. Why?

This just proves that they've completely run out of new ideas for Pop Tarts.

Not completely true. There's still the limited edition flavors.

But the second one isn't very original, since they already have a wild berry flavor.

No actual cocaine in the drink, but quite a bit of caffeine as well as 750 milligrams of taurine.

The Duracell one looks fake, by the way.

The image appears to be some kind of graphic design, but that's just that image. The energy drink is as real as any other, but it is only available in the Czech Republic.

But the second one isn't very original, since they already have a wild berry flavor.

The first one isn't exactly original either, flavor-wise. I imagine it being like a cross between these two flavors:

http://images.wikia.com/poptarts/images/archive/2/25/20100309221856!Hot_Fudge_Sundae.jpg

Here's another flavor that I've never seen before, but I found while searching for the two above flavors:

http://www.kelloggs.com/content/dam/common/products/PopTartsStrawberryMilkshaketoasterpastries_3870.jpg

BACON JERKY!

This product seems to have only come out within the past 6 months, which explains why I haven't been seeing it in stores yet. Hopefully this product will last long enough to hit stores all around the country so everyone can get a chance to experience it.

Do you have to rush to work, and want Coffee AND bacon? Bacon Coffee!

I hope the maple doesn't overpower the bacon flavor, but at the same time, it would probably taste better if it did if the coffee flavor was to be taken into consideration.

The last thing is A BACON POP.

Maple. Of course. That's what's keeping the lollipop together. Actually it's probably high fructose corn syrup disguised as maple flavor, but I can imagine that flavor much more easily than if it were just bacon held together by fairly flavorless sugar.

If Japan has a variety of food flavors, why don't they make a Wasabi Pepsi, Tuna Ice Cream, Snake flavored Doritos, Godzilla flavored Chips, stuff like that?
