Pepsi is doing a better job making their Schwip Scwhap look appetizing than Coke is doing with Mezzo Mix. They probably taste identical, but I would rather buy Schwip Schwap.

Not only do they make it in milk chocolate; it's also available in dark chocolate.


Now that might be something I could get addicted to. I shouldn't even try it since I have no intention of gaining any pounds.

The radish chips might be a healthy alternative.

Also, it's apparently available exclusively in Australia, so @DrElmer, I'm counting on a review from you.


If I decide to take a 37 hour, 3,500 km drive to Fremantle, I will try their fishy ice cream. Until then, you won't be hearing about it from me.

Apparently this is Australian, so we'll make @DrElmer try it and tell us about it.


Again, this dish is not local. Adelaide is a good 8 hours away, and that's certainly not a distance I'm willing to drive for a meat pie in some pea soup. That's literally all it is. I could make a meat pie at home and plop it into some pea soup. How much is really left up to the imagination?

What is that bear thing? Is that ice cream or.....meat product of some variation?

It's funny to think that, from the west coast of the United States, we could fly to Fremantle, Australia in almost half the time it would take @DrElmer to drive there, even though our trip would be closer to 8,000 miles.

Wha-wha-what's that bear thing?

Some sort of lunch meat? Ugh.

For those of you wondering about the meaty pink bear @09philj posted (which looks like the second cousin of the armatar @wishfulpoison77 is wearing), it goes by the name of Billy Bear, it's a sliced sausage used for lunchmeat and sandwich purposes, and for those of you speculating as to what it must taste like, you're probably right.

Not surprisingly, this idea was the brainchild of British grocery chain Tesco. Those of us who have never been to or seen a Tesco remember this store for one specific incident.

I suppose a bear is at least a step above a horse in terms of edibleness, although there are some Japanese ice cream manufacturers who may have the opposite opinion.

If I decide to take a 37 hour, 3,500 km drive to Fremantle, I will try their fishy ice cream. Until then, you won't be hearing about it from me.


The trip for me would probably take at least a week just to get there, and most of it would be underwater. Not to mention the obscene gas prices. There's no way you'll get me to drive all the way to Australia just for some ice cream.

How much is really left up to the imagination?


Authenticity?

Basashi vanilla?


Delicious vanilla ice cream with bits of horse mixed in. How could you possibly turn down anything with such a promising logo?

Octopus?


I might almost take this one over the horse ice cream, honestly.

Cactus?


There aren't too many decent pictures of this one, but there is an interesting article on various Japanese ice cream flavors.

http://bertc.com/subfive/recipes/images/jiccactus1.jpg

The other images of this flavor just looked like regular dishes of ice cream, so I wasn't even completely convinced they were really the flavor they claimed to be. If I wanted to, I could take a picture of lemon sorbet, call it cactus ice cream, and someone somewhere would believe me.

Why do my long posts always end up near the bottom of the page?

If I was offered some of that, I would decline and say "nay." Just the idea of raw horse meat mixed into ice cream sounds like it would smell terrible. Yes, it is raw horse flesh. I looked it up to hear what people said about it and it's apparently vile.

Back onto fries:

Yeah. You get about ~30 fries per box, they actually taste pretty good. You just micro wave for four minutes, and voila! Fries!
