One image did not work because of the content of the url. Let's try a different image of the same product.

Lol, looks like Ernie went bananas on Wikipedia!


I always go bananas on Wikipedia. This time it happened to warrant a pun.

I guess humans and monkeys aren't the only species who like bananas...


Who says dogs like them? They don't flavor the biscuits, nor do they go out and buy them and feed them to each other.


Tried it on complete accident when I was in Germany for a month this last summer...not a good taste in my opinion...


What did you try it on? Or did you try it by itself? That may have had an effect on what you thought of the flavor.

I'm sure these all taste better than they sound.


You have to give Pschitt soda credit for using onomatopoeia for a brand name. I didn't even have to look at the article to understand the origin of the name.

Here are a couple Malaysian sodas with strange names:

And here we have an Australian ice cream bar with a rather unfortunate name and an even more unfortunate slogan:

I don't even understand the logic behind the slogan. If they're saying that it's hard to have one of these frozen snacks on your own, that's basically saying it isn't good enough for more than a few bites and you have to share it with someone else because you can't eat the whole thing on your own.

Unfortunate name or not, that's bad product marketing.

I tried it twice...once on accident on a bratwurst and then after by itself out of curiosity...both times were no-nos (though, if I had to, I'm sure I could survive eating it)

I very much want to try those =o look very good

I don't see what is wrong with it...every now and then I like to enjoy myself a little personal gaytime...maybe if I'm feeling nice that day I'll share the gaytime with friends

I tried it on some freedom fries a few days ago and I absolutely loved it. It's a pretty intense flavor by itself, so I can really only handle it in small doses.

Speaking of interesting German foods...

Yes, they are completely real, but I don't think they've been available for a few years so you probably won't find them even if you go to Germany for the sole purpose of encountering this frozen delicacy.

A bold statement regarding Power Root, seeing as it isn't completely clear as to what the flavor is. It says it's flavored with tongkat ali and honey, but isn't really clear as to whether or not that's the main flavor.

And tongkat ali isn't exactly a household flavor, at least not in this country.

maybe if I'm feeling nice that day I'll share the gaytime with friends


Well, it's hard to have a Gaytime on your own.

Yes, indeed, it has actually been posted once or twice already in this thread. Of course, the thread has gotten so big that linking to each page it appears on would be more of a chore than just posting another image of it.

Personally, I think roast beef gum would be more interesting. Not to say that it would be tastier, but it would certainly be a more unusual flavor considering how many bacon-flavored products are surfacing these days.

Lol, so many ridiculous food names...

What I want to know is why two completely different products have the same off-the-wall name!

To be honest, I have no idea what either of these products are used for... I don't think either of them are for eating, though! =P

I couldn't find any information on either of these products, so I'm thinking that they're not available in any English-speaking countries. The first one looks like Germany to me because of the word "Klaro" I've spotted near the bottom right corner. I'm not sure what this first "Terror" product is but judging by its surroundings, it looks like it's either a household cleaning product or a gardening supply.

The second one is is just as unclear as the first, but from the shape of the bottle and the colors it comes in, I'm guessing it's either a mouthwash or another cleaning product from a different country.

Going back to bizarre bubble gum flavors, this one goes a step further than the other aforementioned meat flavors.

I have mixed feelings about this product.

This thread is deja vu all over again. Weird gum? Obama? Where have I seen that before?

Really? Obama bubble gum? Are the democrats to the point that they must destroy the enjoyability of chewing gum? What are we coming to?
