Oh ice-pops, shaped so suggestively like.. Well.. Randy things.. Oh gummies that are shaped like PUCKERROOOOOMS! and oh strange gums that just don't make sense, I love you! You make me want to do naughty and dirty things to you, things that can only be done to the magical sounds of Mr. Barry Whites musical talent. Oh yeah, baby. Lick that ice-pop, suck that puckeroom, and gently, softly, and sensually masticate that gum (Wow does masticate ever sound like a dirtier word than it is in this context!)
We love you, Strange redolent candies and we adore you, remarkable retro rations!
It never ceases to fill me with joy when I see a product branching out into the strange domain which it was not meant originally to dabble, these products usually don't survive their companies commendable foray into the abnormal but they're almost always beloved by someone in the long run and you can always find someone that remembers them fondly. Some of them rock, some of them suck, and some of them are just.. Straaaange.. Let's see what we can drudge up, shall we?
Well they're meant to taste like Trix Cereal anyway, they tasted more like Lifesaver Ice-Pops which was kind of disappointing, frankly I think if they actually tasted like Trix Ice-Pops they'd be considerably better. Trix is fucking delicious cereal, a way to freeze it in a liquid-like form and make an Ice-Pop out of it would be epic. That wasn't what these were though and now it's definitely not what they are because I'm pretty sure they're gone, I haven't seen them sold for years. Shame because they weren't bad, they just weren't anything special; you could get cheaper that were just as good without the brand.
Know one thing that would be better though? If they made Ice-Pops to taste kind of like the Trix Yogurt. Trix Puddin' Pops. Tell me that doesn't make you salivate.
Dr. Pepper Bubble Gum was introduced in the mid 1980s and much like the Freshen Up Gum of 1975 this gum sported a strange liquid center. This shit was really weird, it was weird not because it was bad which is an extremely strange thing to be saying, I would have expected this gum to be terribad but it was actually pretty good, it amazingly tasted just like Dr. Pepper. I don't know how.
It's strange then and perhaps a little bit of a positive precursor for the possibility of the Extra Dessert Delights Root Beer Float Gum being decent that we've had a decent Root Beer Gum in the past in the extremely unexpected A&W Root Beer Gum.
..At least I hope.. I've liked all the Dessert Delight gums so far, I'd really like them not to fail me now but I have to admit while I'm on the subject, I really would have preferred to see Bananas Foster to have won the gum voting.. That or Lemon Squares..
Hubba Bubba Soda:
Picture if you will a can, this can has bubblegum flavour.. Except it's not bubblegum flavour, it's bubblegum syrup. Not just any syrup, it's like pure extract of bubblegum syrup, sickeningly sweet, makes your teeth hurt on contact, and over powers your taste buds the first swig you take. Your stomach churns when you try to drink this and you immediately feel as if you're going to forcefully hurl the entirety of your stomach contents as this heavy and thick shite plops down and spills into your stomach.
My god this was awful.
Strangely a lot of people actually liked this shite, I can't understand this. I cannot for the life of me fathom why anyone would consider this crap good but some people did.. I mean for fucks sake it was basically snow cone flavouring syrup in a can. Who the HELL drinks snow cone flavouring syrup? Eck..
