Since the popular thread from 2011 has gone to hell with outdated images, false page redirections and 4 blank pages of deleted posts, I think it's time to start anew for the 2012 community.

I'll start out by posting some strange (but real) sodas I found on Google. You can be the ones to determine whether or not you'd ever try any of them.

The label on the last one is real, but the flavor is fake. You'll have to learn the Jones way of doing things.

Chips are another favorite when it comes to bizarre flavors.

^ Those BLT chips are actually not too bad.

And, of course, the Canadian classic...

If you know of any strange flavors or you just happen to find some online, post them here. Pictures are always appreciated.

No, but if you mean this organization, it's on the east coast, so it's a no-go.

I guess anything deep-fried sounds an awful lot better than deep-fried butter. How can you eat something like that without dying right away?

Do they use artificial flavors or are we talking the real deal here? I know a few organic-only zombies who can be very picky about the candy they bite into.

The Candwich is a MBFF classic, making its first MBFF appearance on April 30, 2011. What I find strangest about it is the fact that they decided to shape it not like a soup can, but rather like a soda can, pull-tab and everything.

It is not, however, the strangest thing MBFF has seen in a can.

It's about time. Zombie children are growing tired of Brain Pops.

They're even tired of their cardiovascular counterpart.

I'll eat almost anything deep-fried, and even I won't eat deep-fried butter. I hate butter to begin with, however, so that plays a major role in this decision.

This is a century egg, a traditional chinese dish.
http://www.endalldisease.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Century-eggs.jpg
It is made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, quicklime, and rice hulls for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing. They are often eaten raw.

Candwich doesn't actually look all that bad. I don't know how I feel about liquid cereal, but there's something seriously messed up about that chicken-thing in a can.

What does a century egg taste like?

If a century egg was a hard crystal or a decorative stone and not some smelly gelatinous blob, it could pass for beautiful.

I would imagine the cereal part would be exceptionally soggy, having sat in that milk-like substance for so long. Something similar to when you leave cereal in milk for a few hours.

What does a century egg taste like?


That's the question on everyone's mind. Lucky for you all, this guy seems to (sort of) have the answer.

Passage from the article:

It was that bad. I was trying to move my head away from the taste and smell that were in my assaulting me. Again if I focused for a moment and really tried to taste it, there was a pretty good rich yolk texture and egg flavor but the wafting scent of ammonia in my nostrils was more than I was willing to put up with in order to enjoy an egg.

I'm sure Balut is much better.

But then again, I'm not so sure about anything anymore.

I swear I've seen pictures of kidney stones that look exactly like that egg. Not the one with the duck in it.

I can't say that there have been weirder kidney stones, but I can say that eggs, even naturally, can get pretty strange.

If scientists figured out how to mass-produce these, eggs would only have to come in 3-packs, and they could charge the same price for them.

Rarely do they get this bizarre, but yes, tong zi dan, or virgin boy eggs in English, are eggs soaked in the urine of young boys and eaten for (somewhat ambiguous) medical purposes.

http://calorielab.com/news/wp-images/post-images/egg02_thumb-468x313.jpg

One way they acquire the "marinade" for the eggs, according to the Wikipedia article:

Urine is collected from school toilets


Which must mean there are guys in China who do that for a living. That must be one hell of an interesting career day.

Ikizukuri is a sashimi where the fish is filleted alive and served with it's heart still beating.

Just to prove Britain is capable of weird food too, I give you this:

So basically, since the shells are cracked before they're soaked, you can actually taste the pee when you bite into it? I think the ammonia flavor of a century egg would be the lesser of the two evils.

Speaking of eggs, are these even real?
