Since the popular thread from 2011 has gone to hell with outdated images, false page redirections and 4 blank pages of deleted posts, I think it's time to start anew for the 2012 community.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

@Terry_Logic

Oddly enough, I bought both of those around Thanksgiving. Not too bad to be honest, what did you think of them?

I feel like Bertie Botts is the only one of jelly belly's creation getting battered in this thread... Have any of you guys ever tried their Bean Boozled jelly beans?

http://ep.yimg.com/ay/candy-crate/jelly-belly-bean-boozled-jelly-beans-2-1-6-oz-box-16.gif

I tried a few and had to set down the box because of how repulsive some of them were... Especially when I didn't even know they were bad.

@Ernie15 I've actually done the spaghetti loaf thing. It's weird at first, but then its delicious.

In October, I tried two Oreo flavors that I had not seen in stores before.

Dang it, Terry. If only you told me about these sooner. At least I can still get the Winter edition.

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRibqgxlZXYynLXHHwAmeqSx-RY_AK2Zr2oz8AIKgRblWsX1HXv74AkxSU

I wonder what red cream tastes like.

but if they're anything like unagi, I would not be ashamed to ask for seconds.

I mistakened that for corn on the cob with BBQ sauce poured all over it. Either way, it does look appealing for a food with eel as the main ingredient. Although I shouldn't dis eel as I haven't tried it.

I would much prefer spaghetti & meatballs baked into a loaf of bread.

How did they even get that in there? They must be professional bread bakers to be able to make bread while keeping the noodles perfectly in the middle.

how much worse could it really be than the buttered popcorn flavor?

Funnily enough I actually tried that before. It wasn't bad but it wouldn't be a jelly bean flavor I'd recommend.

Along with the buttered popcorn, I tried the 7up flavor too.

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ7ljZKHMASp5ytarHdtFCQcp9VUdQgwEhKTT4HecrA4MSHWZqVEWxWFqA

It seemed like a good idea to have buttered popcorn and 7up. However unlike the buttered popcorn flavor, I actually recommend these.

I hated brussel sprouts, but now I think I have to try these.

I never tried brussel sprouts because they never looked appealing. The bacon wrapped around it actually makes it look good

However, I don't think that even bacon can make asparagus taste good.

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSKrsq_G0NbzCe2n3uErf4bvgd-ooQIcZ-xAG-9FS0tIynshj5nNYJfyjjh

I have no clue what this is, but WOW

Seems like a donut with some peanut butter frosting and topped with banana slices and pieces of bacon. It doesn't look that bad either.

I would much prefer spaghetti & meatballs baked into a loaf of bread.

Any sandwich I don't have to make is perfect in my book. Now all I need is a book. I ate the last one because I thought it was a sandwich.

Look through Google images. It's an easy mistake to make.

Did the caramel apple flavor taste more like caramel or apple? Did the pumpkin flavor taste more like the inside or the outside of the pumpkin?

The apple flavor was overpowering over the caramel, and the pumpkin one tasted like a humble American pumpkin pie. So you don't even need to make dessert on Thanksgiving if you buy both flavors.

Oddly enough, I bought both of those around Thanksgiving. Not too bad to be honest, what did you think of them?

Did you make pies? The Oreos serve as a more convenient substitute.

They are two great flavors, and I would have a hard time choosing between the two. The apple flavor in the caramel apple is a little intense for some people, and the wasabi green color turned off everyone I offered them to, but they are delicious. So are the pumpkin spice ones, but my girlfriend ate almost all of them.

I have no clue what this is

A gift from the heavens? Probably that.

I hated brussel sprouts, but now I think I have to try these.

However, I don't think that even bacon can make asparagus taste good.

If I didn't suffer from mageirocophobia, I would make these every day. Those are three of my favorite veggies. I included bacon as a veggie.

Dang it, Terry. If only you told me about these sooner. At least I can still get the Winter edition.

If the fall flavors aren't there next year, we can storm Nabisco headquarters together.

Either way, it does look appealing for a food with eel as the main ingredient. Although I shouldn't dis eel as I haven't tried it.

I too would recommend it if you like seafood, but it must be prepared the right way. Ernie and I are both from the west coast, I believe, so we have access to hundreds of Japanese restaurants, but you may not have that geographical advantage, so unagi might not be as easy to come by. And it might be. I don't know other areas of the country well enough.

I tried the 7up flavor too.

7up, Dr Pepper, Orange Crush, and the classic A&W flavors, root beer and cream soda, are all existing Jelly Belly flavors. The first three have the strongest resemblance to the beverage they are mimicking. If only there were a Coke or Pepsi flavor.

So I went to the local aquarium and saw something that absolutely blew my mind.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTlSWXBxq27Aphm8BZcUTI1SfdDXKhgL0qm5VXWINEnMkjnSMaRAtJp6MbU

It's called the Grilled Cheese Donut. It's grilled cheese with donut glazing on it. They even put a hole in the middle of the sandwich to resemble a grilled cheese. My mom and me even tried it. It did not disappoint me, though my mom found it a little different.

Also, I know this isn't really bizarre as it's known throughout the galaxy, but am I the only one that thinks carrot cake is weird:

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQsg8V7bCaySmhWPbmeU6fvJiIgtNrZ2Yl3TUwFfLJTZS3H0nIgYnCyVP4

It's cake... made with carrots. Think about that.

Speaking of jelly beans, how about giving Santa a change in flavor:

Apparently there are quite a few different Oreo flavors out there, many of which I have never even heard of.

http://assets3.thrillist.com/v1/image/1316388/size/tl-horizontal_main/you-need-to-rsvp-to-this-ultimate-oreos-party

Find me the fruit punch one and I'll contribute to your campaign when you run for president.

One of them came with 4 vomit flavoured beans that I'll have to try and choke down.

You'd rather do that than palm them off on your neighbors?

You have much to learn about the teachings of Bertie Bott.

Have any of you guys ever tried their Bean Boozled jelly beans?

@Xzeno left us with an unforgettable quote atthe top of page 23.

Oh man those jellybeans are scary! Of all the trap flavors, though, I'd say black is the most dangerous: It seems like a safe enough normal flavor, but if you're unlucky, you might accidentally get licorice.

As for my feelings, I summed them up the best I could on page 101.

But seriously, I wouldn't try any of those, because half of the "good" flavors are almost as bad as the bad ones. Licorice, buttered popcorn, top banana, and caramel corn are all not worth the risk, and I'm not really optimistic about coconut or cafe latte either. That leaves four flavors that are actually worth biting into, and by that point, you've spent about $5 on 10 jelly beans.

At least they've replaced two of the least desirable regular flavors, licorice and top banana, with some flavors actually worth shooting for. Stinky socks would be worth risking for tutti frutti, and lawn clippings don't even sound all that bad as a flavor.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go eat some grass.

http://static.neatorama.com/images/2006-02/edible-lawn-jelly-bean.jpg

I hated brussel sprouts, but now I think I have to try these.

If you like Brussels sprouts wrapped in bacon, you may also enjoy water chestnuts prepared the same way.

http://www.klce.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/bacon-wrapped-water-chestnut-appetizer-01.jpg

If you like crunchy bacon and are looking for ways to multiply the crunch factor, that would be the way to do it.

I have no clue what this is, but WOW

Luckily for you, I do. They're called Elvis Donuts. If you ever want to make them, here is a recipe. It's an unusual variant of the traditional Elvis donut, as unlike the one you posted, this recipe mixes the bananas into the donut instead of slicing it up and placing it on top.

I wonder what red cream tastes like.

I remember the yellow cream at the center of spring Oreos had a noticeable difference in flavor from the traditional white cream, so it's quite possible that red will taste different as well.

Candy cane Oreos surfaced a couple years back.

http://dinosaurdracula.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/63.jpg

http://dinosaurdracula.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/82.jpg

Peppermint wouldn't be my favorite thing to put between two chocolate Oreo cookies, but it's more exciting (and far less lazy) than just dying regular Oreo cream red.

However, I don't think that even bacon can make asparagus taste good.

Bacon could make celery taste good if it wanted to.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5235/7221862094_66098f854a.jpg

And it does want to. Along with broccoli.

http://www.719woman.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/DSC_0022.jpg

And we would be silly to leave out the world's favorite vegetable, eggplant.

http://thebaconhunter.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Eggplant-Wrapped-in-Bacon-right-out-of-the-oven-close-up-2-e1349205535237.jpg

So you don't even need to make dessert on Thanksgiving if you buy both flavors.

I don't anyway.

Ernie and I are both from the west coast, I believe, so we have access to hundreds of Japanese restaurants, but you may not have that geographical advantage, so unagi might not be as easy to come by.

If I may also add, some places that serve unagi do not de-bone it first, so there's that risk as well. Eels have quite a few tiny, sharp bones that are not in the least bit fun to swallow.

But you should be fine if you order it as sushi and not as a main dish.

If only there were a Coke or Pepsi flavor.

Apparently cola jelly beans do exist, but not under the Jelly Belly brand.

http://thecandyboxandgiftshop.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/510bdc6fd583a96f41488932f58f3ccc/c/o/cola-jelly-beans_1.jpg

They have them in stock for only one British pound per 100g.

So I went to the local aquarium and saw something that absolutely blew my mind.

You must have gone to Tom + Chee, or a place that used their idea. They have an entire list of grilled cheese donut variants.

Even so, the Luther Burger still tops it by adding a hamburger patty.

http://www.cheese-burger.net/images/luther-burger.jpg

Not to be confused with this burger, which uses ramen noodles as buns and apparently a fried egg as well:

http://media4.popsugar-assets.com/files/2013/08/12/970/n/1922195/359640c226e79e4c_thumb_temp311236591376339102/i/Ramen-Burger-Recipe-Video.jpg

am I the only one that thinks carrot cake is weird:

It would be weirder if it actually tasted like carrots. It's as weird as eating a pumpkin pie, which usually doesn't taste anything like a pumpkin.

But that could arguably be the weirdest part.

Speaking of jelly beans, how about giving Santa a change in flavor:

Here's a larger image:

http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/gutcheck/jellybean_milk.jpg

If it were jellybean juice, I would buy a lifetime supply of it, but something about combining jellybeans doesn't sit well with me. It is truly bizarre that anyone would buy something like that, even if they enjoyed drinking milk.

However, if you ever do find yourself wondering what it tastes like, but you don't want to seek out this unusual flavor, apparently it's sweetened with monk fruit juice. I'll leave it to you to figure out if that's less difficult to find than Prairie Farms jellybean milk.

You know, Ernie... I don't know if you know this, but this thread is a lot more famous than you realize... Googling "bizarre food flavors" in the image search pulls up a bunch of images that link directly to this thread!

One of the images took me to a Buzzfeed article about 25 ridiculous gum flavors you didn't know existed. Well I knew most of them existed because of this thread! But number 23, Gourmet Foie Gras gum, had a link underneath it that says Via armorgames.com and takes you directly to page 59 where you first posted it... so you not only contributed to the Buzzfeed article, they credited you in it!

I thought you would be interested in knowing that in case you were just going to let this die forever again. Keep Googling "bizarre food flavors" and you could find other people you and anyone else who has posted here have influenced! =)

@ Jellybean milk

I'm just going to say it now, apologies for the small images. I don't have any kind of way to make them bigger.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go eat some grass.

Then how about some Easter grass?

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQIwM4Yuqc8QmUC2Jq3RB2XwjPhG01MsGSsSaMm-uI28fCpMXvnITFXgHo

I think I showed it before but I'm way too lazy to check.

@ Everything wrapped in bacon

Well since we're talking about bacon let me show you something I found interesting.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRxEvVcAi0JbWHIhv-ICPSTQt1c7cMm_mUAKVy1zwvqebVQjQ-0CNOm8qgO

Introducing bacon wrapped cherries. I wonder how good this will taste.

You must have gone to Tom + Chee, or a place that used their idea.

Yeah it was Tom + Chee. I just couldn't remember their name at the time.

Not to be confused with this burger, which uses ramen noodles

That makes me want this ravioli burger.

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRM9HSIWJQwyqWQADEM1k2cuwowsctKlvI-w0pn-J0iVzM8hvaqJja5CsI

I wonder if it actually tastes like ravioli.

It's as weird as eating a pumpkin pie, which usually doesn't taste anything like a pumpkin.

I'm guessing a pumpkin cake wouldn't taste any different. Unless you added chocolate in the mix.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQKDWxebUXFEeHVPFIeg0tkbWkBB2gZVFXjynq8UHrMwGlupkUcM9RMxADO

And how about some carrot pie topped with pecans?

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTwfqVf0WeC09GC-LY0A3k_JvL7xSdD61-F2dV_7yDhEPj_ctiYUHkSVqc

Makes me want dessert but not this Lucky Popcorn Cake

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQzmhHEERkLHrDDZ2qcv7U5QIth9ASRrB3vmfog--Je-d5-cJrBPNTrAiOe

so you not only contributed to the Buzzfeed article, they credited you in it!

That's even more of a reason to keep this thread running.

Can you tell me how you milk a jellybean? =O

Perhaps it's a special type of cow.

But number 23, Gourmet Foie Gras gum, had a link underneath it that says Via armorgames.com and takes you directly to page 59 where you first posted it... so you not only contributed to the Buzzfeed article, they credited you in it!

I had always wondered what kind of an impact this thread had on the bizarre food community. Between us, random internet articles, and the "real" Andrew Zimmern, it's a small community with a growing following, so it was only a matter of time before this thread was noticed by another site. I didn't expect one of them to credit the thread, though.

Can you tell me how you milk a jellybean? =O

Not on this site, no.

Who likes Chilli Flavoured Ice Cream?

Does it make your mouth feel hot and cold at the same time? If it does, it should be called Katy Perry ice cream.

Then how about some Easter grass?

Most of the green ones are green apple, which isn't a bad flavor, but it doesn't compare to Bertie Bott's grass-flavored jellybean. If they could make edible grass-flavored grass, now that would be a great Easter.

Introducing bacon wrapped cherries. I wonder how good this will taste.

There are pages of recipes for it. Not what I would have expected for fruit wrapped in meat. Some variants also include honey and brown sugar. I need to find a plate of these.

Some of you may also enjoy a bacon-wrapped grilled cheese roll.

http://cdn.wonderfuldiy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Crispy-Bacon-Grilled-Cheese-Roll-Ups.jpg

That makes me want this ravioli burger.

You should have gone to a Slater's 50/50 restaurant in Southern California in September, when the fried ravioli burger was their burger of the month.

If that isn't bizarre enough, it's one of Slater's 50/50 burgers, which is 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon.

And if that still doesn't do it for you, you can look at some of Slater's other burger creations.

100% Ground Bacon Burger.
Turducken Burger.
Kangaroo Burger.

Do I wish I lived in Southern California? Yes.

I'm trying to think of a smart pun for ice cream being chilly. Just imagine I said a funny pun.

"All ice cream is chilly, flavored ice cream."

There's your pun. Now drink this ranch dressing soda.

http://del.h-cdn.co/assets/cm/15/10/54f94dc7e1d5f_-_ranch-dressing-soda.jpg

This is Irn-Bru. I don't know what flavour it is and neither does Wikipedia.

The general consensus is that it's citrus-flavored, like standard Mountain Dew. Some people also say it tastes like bubblegum.

How did we as a society come to accept this soda that resembles nuclear waste as normal?

http://www.fvalente.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/wpid-457128934.jpg

The corn chips are at least natural-looking. As natural as corn chips can look.

What better to top chili ice cream with than some hot chili hot fudge sauce, eh @akshobhya? =)

@ Bacon-wrapped cherries
Now, cherries are one of my favorite fruits, and bacon is, well, bacon, so this is an ambrosial arrangement... if the cherries are pitted first! If they're not, you'll be spitting seeds while you're trying to chew the bacon!

@ Chocolate pumpkin cake
Another combination that can't go wrong! While it doesn't seem bizarre with the whole pumpkin spice craze happening, I have some new ideas for this Thanksgiving!

@ Irn-Bru
It looks like regular orange soda, and it probably tastes like it... but with a name like that, I can't imagine it tasting like anything other than a chain link fence!

But the more I look at it, the more resemblance I see to molten iron...

http://s3-media1.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/TsCOIFh_bGVdOscxe0TbYw/348s.jpg

@California gyro
French fries AND pita bread in one bite? Starch overload! Starch overload! Tell those San Franciscans to throw some tomatoes in there or we don't have a deal!

@Ranch soda
Best when mixed with...
