Since the popular thread from 2011 has gone to hell with outdated images, false page redirections and 4 blank pages of deleted posts, I think it's time to start anew for the 2012 community.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

It looks like regular orange soda, and it probably tastes like it...

Trust me, it doesn't.

Apologies for the small images.

Last week was July 4th and do you know what food goes hand in hand with America? Hot dogs. Specifically, the Red White and Blue dog.

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTVgpzjqgG_UyXnQycavdVZ_23z54SBS8sf4g8fRgxWIjowpAu8zluTMXKc

What is that, colored onions? Sauerkraut? I don't know, I only eat my hot dogs with ketchup and mustard.

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

It's supposed to be pronounced, Iron Brew. So judging from the name alone, it must be some kind of soda extracted from the juices of metal. Mmmm, metal juice.

And now I just noticed @Skeleton_Pilot mentioned that before I did.

*deleted some spam*

You wouldn't dare delete this spam would you?

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR2LZXAQF0nzwx3fJS8__23jLug2CCMsLb9Eqjx9UT6OpfLeifPWLgYwdbb

Sorry, sorry. I saw the opportunity and I took it.

Anyone like gyros?

No not really. Although that maybe because the ones I've seen, at Greek festivals, usually have tomatoes. Maybe if you remove the onions on those gyros, I'd be more enthusiastic to eat it.

This gyro pie looks good as well.

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxQnbXsTDMPFfya89klVj_J9FLG2sCOa75rJ0g_6Cf4e4BIUYUC_uYuLU

Most of the green ones are green apple, which isn't a bad flavor

Really? The one's I've had, green, pink, and blue, had barely any taste. I'll have to try to look for those.

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

Those look great, I'd definitely make those if I had any sense of cooking.

And these bacon-wrapped scalops make me wish I had a sense of fishing.

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ1_p5dNua88_bLkHwS9e4afuBcR0HKJkse8JfJ8RaEcVsE54cVOldW_Sxh

I really want to try sea food.

Now drink this ranch dressing soda.

Saw the thumbnails of videos titled "Ranch Dressing Soda Challenge." So no thank you.

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

Another question is when did we decide to sell nuclear waste as candy.

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRCK9GfWWhWJxNNLZWfAx7PFISskT1Aq6oNytx91gjU753GCPyszwXq5h8

I'd imagine these are just like Warheads... oh gawd please no more...

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

Couldn't find any chips, but I did find some cola hard candy.

What better to top chili ice cream with than some hot chili hot fudge sauce

It could also go well with chocolate pasta if you're in for something spicy.

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSO7_fzTOVmr-Tk8Pe-Rfn7DkTWayiI40uQGWHlxOUcmbhgovMwbJCeUd62

Now what flavor these are, you tell me...

Growing adolescent, airplane peanuts, and gas leak.

@ All-American Hot dog
The blue stuff is probably just blue ketchup... but combined with the onions, it looks like mold! Welcome to America, here's your moldy hot dog! =P

@ Gyro pie
This needs to be re-marketed as the &quotyro" so that people who love it can call themselves pyromaniacs! =D

@ Cola candy
But how does it compare to Haribo Happy Cola?

http://www.gonedigging.co.uk/images/products/cola-bottles-jar-2.jpg

http://www.onlineshoppingtenerife.com/userfiles/image/2011/sweets/haribo_happy_cola_enl.jpg

I've never tasted the Japanese hard candy, but I already know the answer: it doesn't compare!

@ Chocolate pasta
I can see it now... spicy double chocolate spaghetti. But which chain restaurant will pick this million-dollar idea up first?

@ Not Your Grandma's Fruitcake
It looks a bit like a fruitcake... but from the description, it sounds more like a Moon Pie with gummies on it and no chocolate.

Who likes kimchi? Let me rephrase the question, who likes kimchi enough to drink it?

http://www.weirdasianews.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/5coolpis_kimchi.jpg

Did anyone keep their hand up for both questions?

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!

Pit the cherries, fill them with chocolate, wrap them in bacon, and have fun trying to get people to leave your house.

It's supposed to be pronounced, Iron Brew. So judging from the name alone, it must be some kind of soda extracted from the juices of metal.

It's actually formed when iron becomes oxidized in the presence of moisture. Water and sugar are the main ingredients. A common term for the other main ingredient is "rust".

http://image.naldzgraphics.net/2011/05/35-Textures-Steel-Rusted-Metal-Sheeting-Machinary-025.jpg

That's what it looks like in its "raw" form, before it's harvested for Scottish drinking pleasure.

And these bacon-wrapped scalops make me wish I had a sense of fishing.

Buying them from the store might be easier, and you're more likely to find bacon there than in a lake or an ocean.

Of course, there's always the chance that, while fishing, you'll come across this fish...

http://www.sprint2thetable.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Bacon-Fidh.jpg

So by all means, catch it if you do. Scallops are nothing compared to this.

I know what you must be thinking, and yes, it also exists in stores in sliced packaged form.

Another question is when did we decide to sell nuclear waste as candy.

The government decided it was the best way to dispose of it and control the population at the same time. They don't talk much about the kids who developed superpowers.

I can see it now... spicy double chocolate spaghetti. But which chain restaurant will pick this million-dollar idea up first?

Do you even need to ask? Chili's.

Moon Pie

You know what those taste like?

http://www.esa.int/var/esa/storage/images/esa_multimedia/images/2001/07/view_of_the_moon_seen_apollo_17/9215843-5-eng-GB/View_of_the_Moon_seen_Apollo_17_medium.jpg

But deep fried...

http://s3-media1.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/jb4MjI8s-a54yBBBVTERMQ/l.jpg

These kids perfectly describe what it tastes like.

I encountered this while on mandatory vacation last month. Then I went back to Carl's Jr. and encountered it again.

The All-American burger could only be more American if you slapped an applie pie on it.

Kettle also has some new flavors in their lineup.

Roasted garlic is the best one, but you should buy all of them to try them. You'll want the big bags.

Ever had the Garbage Burger from Max and Erma's? I tell you what, I went there for the very first time and ordered it, then when we left for home I spent about ~45 minutes in the bathroom. It turned out to be a pretty good burger, but the aftermath was not pleasant and I would not go through that again.

From their menu:
The burger that started it all! It’s got smoked bacon,
cheddar, Swiss, American & mozzarella cheeses,
sautéed mushrooms & onions, guacamole &
marinara. Served with lettuce, tomato & onion on a
toasted brioche bun. 9.99

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/4e/bc/85/4ebc850b740cc448990591bf415e65b0.jpg

The photo makes the burger look pretty, but in actuality it's pretty ugly and the top of the bun needs to be smashed on.

Neither one of those burgers can be as tall as they look in the pictures. I should try the All-American one before it disappears for the sake of trying it. I don't know what chips would do to a hamburger besides make it crunchier. Never been to Max and Erma's because it's only in the Midwest and the East, but I do like bacon, mushrooms, onions, marinara, and guac, so it would be on my list if I lived near one.

The menu at Max and Erma's has some intrepid burger options, my favorite three, going by description alone, being the Colossal Meatball Burger, the Windy City Brat Burger, and the Sunny Side Burger. Although I'll most likely never try any of them as long as I live since I live in the wrong part of the country, those three sound the most delicious (and one comes with a side of maple ketchup).

Kettle also has some new flavors in their lineup.

I've tried most of them, including maple bacon, and I actually liked the pepperoncini one above all the others (roasted garlic and maple bacon were close runners up). The red hot ones were the ones that ran together. Releasing all three of those red flavors at once was too much to handle at one time.

Here's one I haven't seen before. Must be a Midwestern flavor:

Why eat beer and drink cheese when you can chip them all in one eat?

According to Ashens, this tastes rather nice, and not of broccoli at all. It looks very alarming though.

I should have been paying more attention to the soda industry when Get Smart was in theaters.

I've had juices made from mixed vegetables, such as kale, spirulina, and other weird green plant matter. With fruit juices like mango and apple mixed in, you can't even taste the green stuff.

this... exists

On the previous page, in fact. Also available in Pepsi flavor.

And KFC also weaseled their way into the Japanese chip industry.

A family friend tried this on a trip to Japan. It is, apparently, revolting.

Battenberg cake is a traditional dessert from England. Looks bizarre, doesn't taste so. The cake is just ordinary sponge cake dyed pink and yellow.
