Since the popular thread from 2011 has gone to hell with outdated images, false page redirections and 4 blank pages of deleted posts, I think it's time to start anew for the 2012 community.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

Not a lot of hype about McRib season. I expected a bigger turnout. Frankly, I'm kind of disappointed.

Maybe if I post a picture of one with bacon and mozzarella sticks piled onto it, crowds will start flocking.

One of those bars reminded me of this, possibly the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted.


Onions and chocolate aren't too bad a combination (but it's a surefire recipe for disaster if you're a dog). It's the cheese that would stop me from trying that stuff.

But chocolate and cheese slammed together isn't anything new to the food world.

Still their most delicious creation other than their legendary fries.


You can say that again.

Seriously, you can say it again. People just aren't reading this thread like they used to. You can say whatever you want as many times as you want.

I swear the two must have been fraternal twins, separated at birth.


They are definitely of the same genus, but there are clear genetic differences between the two.

Tayto Man has small, beady eyes, a standard-sized nose, and regular arms with regular fingers. Speedy Eggbert has a huge, round nose, giant, round feet, big bushy eyebrows that aren't even attached to his face, one giant eye with two large pupils inside of it, and skinny little arms with round stubs where his hands should be.

Whether or not the two are related, it's obvious one way or the other that Speedy Eggbert was born with a number of serious birth defects.

You like fries so much? What about from a vending machine?


Somehow I don't trust the quality of hot fried foods that have been sitting in the same place all day.

Then again, I do eat at McDonald's fairly regularly.

And besides, it's not the strangest thing to ever happen to vending machines.

@ McRib
Yes, it is definitely one of the finer items McDonald's has come up with... probably because it was invented by an actual chef! =P

But you add too many toppings to it, such as the person who took that one picture did, and your heart will stop the second you smell it!

And besides, it's not the strangest thing to ever happen to vending machines.


Lol, what about a claw machine that dispenses lobsters?

http://flavorwire.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/lobsters.jpg

It takes the idea of a claw machine to an entirely new level! =D

There's no doubt that even bacon is unnecessary atop this legendary sandwich. The mozzarella sticks are just insulting.

Could that machine really be in any location other than Maine?

The largest vending machine I've ever seen holds a Smart Car. Am I the only one who sees the irony here?

http://formentis.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/japanese-vending-machine.jpg

But when you see the next machine Japan has created, Smart Cars seem as normal as Coke bottles in vending machines.

http://cdn-www.i-am-bored.com/media/boob-machine.jpg

Those are what you think they are.

Whether or not the two are related, it's obvious one way or the other that Speedy Eggbert was born with a number of serious birth defects.


He doesn't speak coherent English, either. He mostly makes noises like "ow ow" and "woo" when he's trying to speak. I see what you mean, there is something clearly unusual about him.

I'll leave it to you to decide what part of this is the most revolting.

@ Smart machine
The most baffling part about this is that, rather than just display the car normally, they actually put in hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to build an interactive box around one tiny insignificant car!

The Japanese must LOVE their Smarts! =P

@ Other machine
I hope claw machines in Japan are easier to win than they are in the US! =D

I'll leave it to you to decide what part of this is the most revolting.


That is the million dollar question! Those beetles, as food, are disgusting enough on their own, but that viscous marinade they're lying peacefully in makes them seem even more inedible than they actually are!

Anyone remember the Pizza Burger from page 3?

http://www.ilsul6ana.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/IMG_3814.jpg

The old image no longer works, so I thought I'd bring it back for the holidays.

Don't you just hate it when you pay for the Smart you want, and it gets caught in the machine, and you don't even get your dollar fifty back? That's the worst feeling ever.

As for the vending machine below the Smart machine, I'll let this picture that was funny 7 years ago but no longer culturally relevant express how I feel about it:

http://fcdn.mtbr.com/attachments/santa-cruz/829874d1378436090-santa-cruz-solo-aluminum-project-borat-very_nice.jpg

I didn't laugh, either.

I'll leave it to you to decide what part of this is the most revolting.


I would say it's the bugs. Although that aluminum can with the pull tab is pretty vile too.

That's the idea.

Pizza Hut also tried something similar in the Middle East. @pickpocket originally posted the image on page 26, and @Devoidless recently brought it back to our attention in Battle of the Foods.

One's a pizza burger, the other's a burger pizza. It's up to you to decide which is which.

Hamburger pizza sounds pretty good right now.

@ Pizza burger
As I said before... in 2012... that product could not have been very popular for very long. I say this because I would try it once for the novelty and then never eat it again and just buy a regular burger instead. It's just impractical, unless you find 6 people who happen to want the exact same type of burger! Not only would nobody ever get the pizza burger twice, but everyone who the pizza burger customer shared with would never order it again either, so that's a net loss of 5 customers per burger... err... pizza. =P

The old image no longer works, so I thought I'd bring it back for the holidays.


A pizza burger isn't holiday food, but these are!

Happy holidays, MBFF! =D

@ Crown Crust Carnival pizza
Now there's a pizza fit for a king... King Charles the Fat!

@ Campbell's cheeseburger
The only thing hearty about that soup is the attack you get after eating it!

@ Campbell's "offspring"
Because that's what those repulsive little heartburn devils need. Cheese. Whose idea was it to invent those things in the first place? xP

If I have to eat them, I would much rather have sliced hot dogs mixed in to ease the pain...

How do they expect win in any way from putting cheese in canned foods? Even by itself, there's nothing about it that screams "buy me!"

So is delicious Smalahove.

I have something bigger planned for MBFF Christmas, but for now, here's a bacon gingerbread house.

Enjoy it while it lasts. It's the internet, so it won't.

A boiled sheep's head? And it's a delicacy? What will those wacky Norwegians think of next...

Fish mixed with lye?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/62/ForkLutefisk.jpg/250px-ForkLutefisk.jpg

Caramelized cheese?

http://www.igourmet.com/images/topics/gjetost.jpg

Sour cream porridge?

I'm glad none of those things actually exist in the real world...

@ Processed cheese
Eugghh! What purpose does this serve?!

I have something bigger planned for MBFF Christmas


=O

"Hello? Yes, honey, I'll be home for dinner... what's that? You made plans to go to your parents' house for Christmas? You'll have to reschedule... yeah, I already made plans for Christmas....... hello?"

I don't think I'll make the MBFF Christmas special this year... I have to patch things up with a certain wife of mine...

but for now, here's a bacon gingerbread house.


Forget the wife, it's chow time!
