While I’ve talked on this subject before, I feel like I should bring it up again for two reasons.
One, because it’s a completely ridiculous thing, and two, it’s something funny and different.
Our nation grants us freedoms that some countries only dare to dream about.
We have the freedom of religion and speech, the freedom to travel wherever we want and the freedom to make some of the most disgusting flavor combos known to mankind!
Some of these flavors might appeal to you, but hey, I have freedom of speech, and my speech is this;
Who gets paid to make up such weird and unappetizing flavors?
There is no way the inventor of the Wonka Bar would dare to invent such flavors…
Before I get into the flavors, let me ask you this; do you remember when there was only a couple of different flavors of chips or Pringles? Cereal? Candy canes?
Now we have more flavor combos than a zebra has stripes.
The most common flavor in foods I’ve seen lately is pickles. I’ve seen pickle-flavored candy canes, fried pickle with ranch-flavored chips, dill pickle Pringle chips, pickle pop corn…
Oh, and then there is this gem that I saw at a local store.
Who in the name of Willy Wonka would drink that!? But it does not stop there for the pickle world. There is also pickle-flavored Ice Cream with dried pickles on the side…Yes, you read that right.
In New York City you can get Pickle Ice Cream with pickles in and outside the ice cream.
Pickles are good for one thing, to eat, no to put them in something as sacred as a candy cane!
Another flavor taking over is bacon. First off, I’m not a huge fan of bacon anyway, I know, I dare I say that…I dared.
Why is it every time you turn around bacon has been added to something, including candy canes (really? again!?), frosting, bacon maple-flavored coffee and even bacon soda.
Jones Soda is famous for its extremely weird and unusual flavors, some of their limited-edition soda’s included: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Thanksgiving dinner themes flavors such as turkey, potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, brussels sprouts and pumpkin pie, and you this was coming…bacon flavored soda.
These foods should be eaten! Not drank like a Coke or a Pepsi…expect brussels sprouts, those should not be drank or eaten…them veggies are just wrong…sorry Mom
Other flavors of foods I find questionable are Candy Corn Oreos, Jelly Donut Oreos, biscuit and gravy potato chips, wasabi candy canes (Really? candy cane again?!) and last but not least, Mayochup.
Mayo and Ketchup put together in one bottle. Again, sacred things put together!
I am a bit of an old-fashioned person, not a fan of change, I like the classics of many things, but I will try and like new things to a point.
But I will be loyal to my peppermint candy canes, eating my pickles and my bacon if I have to, and as far as chips, I love chips, just not pickled!
What’s the next biggest food combo? Bacon flavored pickles!?
Hope y’all enjoyed this post, and maybe it made you smile…or throw up…as I think I did a little bit as I discovered these flavors.
