12 Bizarre Beverage Flavors Slideshow


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

Maryse Chevriere

Jones Soda Co. is known for their variety of oddball specialty flavors. (Just consider the Thanksgiving Holiday pack "sides": Sweet Potato Soda, Pea Soda, Dinner 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.

Tarragon-Flavored Soda

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

Way ahead of the curve on the juicing trend, this celery-flavored soda has been around since 1868. Prevalent in New York and South Florida, the drink can most commonly be found in Jewish delicatessens and restaurants. Made from celery seed extract, the flavor has been likened to a spicy ginger ale.

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.

Coca-Cola BlāK

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.
