12 Bizarre Beverage Flavors Slideshow
February 1, 2011
Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer
Slice of pizza and a pint of beer? Classic. Pizza as a flavor of beer? Now that's another story. Created by homebrewers Tom and Athena Seefurth, Margarita pizza is supposedly put into the mash and steeped like a teabag. Expect flavors of tomato, oregano, garlic, and basil from this savory "culinary" brew.
Jones' Tofurky & Gravy Soda
Jones Soda Co. is known for their variety of oddball specialty flavors. (Just consider the Thanksgiving Holiday pack "sides": Sweet Potato Soda, Pea Soda, Roll Soda, and Antacid Flavored Soda). But Tofurky & Gravy Soda? Only die-hard Tofurky fanatics need apply. In a recent taste test, we detected a “new toy” smell and “aspartame” finish.
In a cream sauce for fish, or mixed in with mayo for chicken salad, tarragon is lovely. But as a flavoring for soda? That definitely crosses over into bizarre beverage territory.
Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Soda
Pepsi White — Yogurt Flavor
Pepsi and yogurt: A match made in unlikely beverage heaven? The sweet taste of Pepsi meets the creamy flavor of yogurt in this unexpected pairing, available only in Japan.
Pepsi Ice Cucumber
'Cool as a cucumber' gets the soda treatment in this drink, another unique limited-edition Pepsi product out of Japan.
Espresso stout and coffee-based cocktails have had such great success, too bad the same can't be said for coffee-flavored soda. That is, at least, in the case of the short-lived Coca-Cola BlāK. Discontinued two years after its release, Anderson Cooper infamously spit the drink out on Live with Regis and Kelly. Let's just say it was no Manhattan Special.
Chelada - Budweiser & Clamato
The all-in-one-can solution for the Michelada Clamato drinker.
Exactly what it sounds like: beer plus milk. And here's the kicker — this Japanese low-malt beer is said to have a "fruity" flavor.
Cab Cola & Beer with Dragonfruit
Dragonfruit flavoring tips this already interesting combination of beer and cola over on the bizarre beverage scale. Apparently, this German brand of beer-based mixed drinks also makes Banana & Beer and Cherry & Beer variations.
Bubble Gum Vodka
Vokda gets flavored with a lot of interesting and 'out there' ingredients, but bubble gum?
Orangina Cowboy Menthe
French orange soda flavored with a heavy does of mint syrup. Just what exactly is "cowboy" about it we're not quite sure.
