Chocolate Soda?


I found this. I just had to try it and see what the heck a chocolate soda tasted like. Especially one that is apparently a diet drink. I assume there’s some diet program that tells you to drink this so you won’t eat a bunch of sweets, but who cares. I want to drink this thing.

Pouring it… The smell is very… uhh… chocolatey.

Here goes nothing……



It actually ended up being not that bad. Like… It has this extraordinarily odd taste. Carbonated, diet chocolate soda would probably have to be odd. Once you get past the weird carbonation/chocolate combination, it actually starts tasting pretty good, and doesn’t even have a bad aftertaste. Thing is, at least with me, I can only drink a little bit at a time. I start to get a headache after drinking it…. Which is obviously a gigantic turnoff to this drink and I can’t even explain why this is. Maybe it’s just me.

Regardless of that, I would recommend everyone try it just to see what it’s like. It’s definitely the most unique soda I’ve tasted in a while.


The Most Disappointing Candy

This is Now & Later, the most disappointing candy of all time. When you first look at it, you think, “Oh boy! It’s a delicious Starburst candy!” You take the wrapper off (if all of the wrapper even comes off. Parts of it usually stick to the candy), take a bite, and break your teeth. This is not a soft, juicy candy; no, this is a flavored rock. You painfully chew for a couple of years before it breaks down to the point where you think you can swallow it without choking out, and then it’s over.

The worst part of Now & Later is not that it is a bad candy, but that it is such a poser Starburst imitator. The creators of this candy must have been really either really low to trick people into thinking they are buying Starbust, or they are huge hipsters and say, “Ha, Starburst? That stuff doesn’t take you an hour to chew. Let’s make a candy that does! Mmmmm, yum! I can taste the broken-off pieces of my teeth!”

Maybe I am over-analyzing this, but I am thinking that it is possible the denture industry is the reason these candies still exist. The FDA should not approve of this stuff being produced, so maybe they get paid a little extra in Sea-Bond bonuses, the candy sells well by accident, the denture industry makes a huge profit, and then everyone is happy. Everyone except for the poor, unfortunate souls that have to eat this candy, that is.

My Weird Food Obsessions

Here are some really strange food combinations that I love:

-Honey and Cheez-its: I can’t explain why. It’s just good.
-Peanut Butter and Chocolate Syrup Sandwich: It’s the closest I can get to homemade Reese’s Cups. =P
-Putting chips on frozen pizzas and eating it like a taco.
-Getting a bowl of chips, pouring spaghetti sauce over it, and then putting some shredded cheese on it.

Yay for food.
