I was thinking about Pepsi Kick earlier today (page 28) and how it contained traces of nicotine, and it made me think, is it possible to quit smoking just by drinking smaller and smaller amounts of Pepsi Kick every day?

Oh, the thoughts that enter my mind...

Talking about drinks, I found these two.

First, a soft drink called Orbitz. It was a fruit-flavored beverage with small balls floating in it.

I'm not sure if I would drink something like that, but to be honest it is a nice decorative element. I'd like to have one or two in my living room.

The next one is one of these strange products from Japan. It's called Diet Water, which I assume has all the taste and none of the calories of the water I usually drink.

Honestly, I don't know what to say.

The floating balls in Orbitz are edible, and the flavors actually sound pretty interesting. I'd definitely try it if it were still on the market.

Diet Water reminds me of another very strange Japanese beverage; only, instead of being made by Japanese beer giant Sapporo, this one is made by Coca-Cola:

Yes, they're edible which doesn't make those drinks more appetizing, at least to me. They're still balls floating in a liquid.

I found another drink with floating things inside. It is made of basil seeds.

Again, I'm not sure if I would even taste it.

I have a love/hate relationship with this thread.  Mainly because all the food here looks so bizarre and yet so good, but it makes me hungry...

to stay on topic:

That they are, I can't argue with that. Then again, what are bubbles in a carbonated beverage but tiny floating balls that pop in your mouth?

Orbitz would have definitely sold more had they made their drink carbonated. That was their biggest marketing mistake. Floating balls or not, any clear, flavored liquid with flavors like that would not be able to compete with the fizzy drinks; it would have just tasted like a flat soda that had been sitting out all night. The floating balls were probably the best thing the drink had to offer.

I found another drink with floating things inside. It is made of basil seeds.

Now that does look too weird to drink. I'd find myself doing a lot of chewing if I were to drink that, and that's not something I look for in a drink.

Not to mention that the seeds look like fly larva.

this makes me want to vomit...  fried spiders.

There is no doubt in anyone's mind that if these made it to American restaurant menus, they would be called "fryders".

I'd take a fryder with ketchup over just about anything at Taco Bell.

It probably is WETTER then normal water, so you don't have to drink as much, and thus ingest less more then 0 calories in normal water.

RE: Water salad.

At least you can get a full serving of cabbage and stuff, do they have salad dressing water so you can get the real taste of real salad?
