Check this out

It's called a dragon fruit. My store had these for a short while. Some of our asian users should know about these:

Not really bizarre so to speak, but they cost 8 bucks a piece.

Don't get me wrong, maybe it's delicious, but the idea of a syrup flavoured sausage doesn't seem quite appealing

Hey, delicious or not, they named the brand after us! They must have had a problem with copyright infringement, though, because they snuck a 'u' into the name... those conniving English sausage canners! =P

@ Ginger Ale Kit-Kat
I don't want one unless it's nice and bubbly! =D

@ Candy Bars Infused With Things
Jelly beans, cookie pieces, M&M's... how about...

Beef jerky!

Might have to scroll a bit for the second one... if it even works! I'm not sure if that type of link is still censored here...

My most humble apologies. Here is the mac & cheese dog:

Eeyuck, no thanks... I'd prefer to have a meal that doesn't come out the way it came in! =P

@ Candy Corn Oreos
One of the more famous of bizarre food flavors, having made an appearance on South Park!

I ventured back to page 66 and found candy corn on the cob...

@ Dragon Fruit
I've had many dragon fruit flavored food items, but I've never actually tried one by itself! What is it that makes them so special? And by special I mean pricy. xP

I couldn't find the name of the first fruit, but according to the link, the man's name is Bill. =P

The second one linked me to a site filled with rare fruits, but most of them didn't have names to go with them... seems like a pretty poorly run site if you ask me!

But if you want to get into interesting fruits, here's the jackfruit, breadfruit, and starfruit respectively.

Not sure where they got their names, except for the last one, but as far as unusual fruits go, they're actually pretty well-known! If you've never heard of any of these, I suggest you go back to fruit school and study up a bit... =P

Let's not forget about the spiky kiwano melon.

http://eatwellglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/kiwano.jpg

Or the equally-bizarre rambutan fruit.

http://www.plantogram.com/published/publicdata/DESIREW1WEBPLANTO/attachments/SC/products_pictures/rambutan1_enl.jpg

And although it isn't a fruit, it wouldn't be right to leave romanesco broccoli out of the loop.

Going back to unusual candy bars, Chuao has some interesting creations. The link is an image of 10 different Chuao flavors, but it's far too large to post here, so for those of you who can't stand clicking on links, I'll just show you the especially strange ones.

Maple Bacon

Potato Chip

http://img4-2.realsimple.timeinc.net/images/daily-finds/food/1112/chuao-chocolate-ictcrop_300.jpg

Salted Chocolate Crunch

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51GBzMUcd-L._SX385_SX385_SY500_CR,0,0,385,500_PIbundle-4,TopRight,0,0_SX385_SY500_CR,0,0,385,500_SH20_.jpg

And my personal favorite*, Firecracker

http://img4-3.allyou.timeinc.net/i/2013/3/flavors-4-l.jpg?400:400

Why these images can't all just be the same size is beyond me. All I know is, page 92 is not going to be a short one.

*I have not tried any Chuao chocolate bar flavors. My favoritism is purely hypothetical.

Does it actually taste like firecrackers? I hope so.

Why these images can't all just be the same size is beyond me.

They keep getting closer to me...they beckon me...

One of those bars reminded me of this, possibly the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted.

Hey kids, it's that time of year again!

Let's take a moment of silence to bask in its glory. If you don't know what this is by now, I have no more to say to you.

(It's a McRib)

I went to McDonald's a few days ago just to get a McRib, and I was surprised at how subtly it was displayed. Usually there's at least one noticeable sign for it, but I almost didn't order one until I saw the tiny blurb on the back of the cash register.

Still their most delicious creation other than their legendary fries.

The Tayto man bears a striking resemblance to Speedy Eggbert.
