Since the popular thread from 2011 has gone to hell with outdated images, false page redirections and 4 blank pages of deleted posts, I think it's time to start anew for the 2012 community.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

Also, it's apparently available exclusively in Australia, so @DrElmer, I'm counting on a review from you.


If I decide to take a 37 hour, 3,500 km drive to Fremantle, I will try their fishy ice cream. Until then, you won't be hearing about it from me.

Apparently this is Australian, so we'll make @DrElmer try it and tell us about it.


Again, this dish is not local. Adelaide is a good 8 hours away, and that's certainly not a distance I'm willing to drive for a meat pie in some pea soup. That's literally all it is. I could make a meat pie at home and plop it into some pea soup. How much is really left up to the imagination?

What is that bear thing? Is that ice cream or.....meat product of some variation?

It's funny to think that, from the west coast of the United States, we could fly to Fremantle, Australia in almost half the time it would take @DrElmer to drive there, even though our trip would be closer to 8,000 miles.

Wha-wha-what's that bear thing?
*Wretch*
Some sort of lunch meat? Ugh.

For those of you wondering about the meaty pink bear @09philj posted (which looks like the second cousin of the armatar @wishfulpoison77 is wearing), it goes by the name of Billy Bear, it's a sliced sausage used for lunchmeat and sandwich purposes, and for those of you speculating as to what it must taste like, you're probably right.

Not surprisingly, this idea was the brainchild of British grocery chain Tesco. Those of us who have never been to or seen a Tesco remember this store for one specific incident.

I suppose a bear is at least a step above a horse in terms of edibleness, although there are some Japanese ice cream manufacturers who may have the opposite opinion.

If I decide to take a 37 hour, 3,500 km drive to Fremantle, I will try their fishy ice cream. Until then, you won't be hearing about it from me.


The trip for me would probably take at least a week just to get there, and most of it would be underwater. Not to mention the obscene gas prices. There's no way you'll get me to drive all the way to Australia just for some ice cream.

Authenticity?

Basashi vanilla?


Delicious vanilla ice cream with bits of horse mixed in. How could you possibly turn down anything with such a promising logo?

Octopus?


I might almost take this one over the horse ice cream, honestly.

http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/cityofate/japanese%20octopus%20ice%20cream%5B6%5D.jpg

Cactus?


There aren't too many decent pictures of this one, but there is an interesting article on various Japanese ice cream flavors.

http://bertc.com/subfive/recipes/images/jiccactus1.jpg

The other images of this flavor just looked like regular dishes of ice cream, so I wasn't even completely convinced they were really the flavor they claimed to be. If I wanted to, I could take a picture of lemon sorbet, call it cactus ice cream, and someone somewhere would believe me.

Why do my long posts always end up near the bottom of the page?

If I was offered some of that, I would decline and say "nay." Just the idea of raw horse meat mixed into ice cream sounds like it would smell terrible. Yes, it is raw horse flesh. I looked it up to hear what people said about it and it's apparently vile.

Back onto fries:

Yeah. You get about ~30 fries per box, they actually taste pretty good. You just micro wave for four minutes, and voila! Fries!

Ore Ida fries aren't bad as far as frozen food goes. Compared to some of the other frozen food items out there, said fries are nothing out of the ordinary.

I, however, prefer my fries to be a little bit happier...

Indeed, the article I posted a few pages back mentioned this. Raw horse ice cream is on the exclusive list of bizarre food flavors I will never try. Among the few list items are Tong Zi Dan, Sweetbread, and anything with cheese in it.

On the subject of frozen delicacies, I thought it might be appropriate to bring up the Ice Cream Brrrger.

http://www.geekosystem.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/icecreambrrrgersign.jpg

Carl's Jr. came up with this one. Not bad, not bad. What might they introduce for a side? Ore Ida frozen fries before you put them in the oven?

where can you find those?


You might be able to find McCain Smiles at your local Walmart.

But if you're still under the impression that McCain Smiles is something else entirely...

...you may not find what you're looking for at Walmart.

I don't know if I trust that brrrger. That green slime sauce doesn't look like something that should be anywhere near food.

The smiling fries claim to have mashed potato insides, so the flavor and consistency could be different from those of a regular fry.

McCain Smiles


I used to get them at primary school. They taste quite nice, with a slightly crispier exterior than a normal fry, but a softer interior. I would say they're closer to hash browns than fries.

Here in Britain, we like our foods to give us heart disease as quickly as possible.
