Johnny Unusual Ate This - A near-weekly series of terrible mistakes

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
Shark Bite Cherry
QnU5Aj1.jpg

I'm not anticipating it from being different than most cherry lollis but I find cherry the most consistently good flavour.
Yep, cherry. Is good.
Cheetos Fine Turkey
dz6qnN8.jpg

Fun fact, Chinese Cheetoes use meat flavours rather than cheese flavours.
The savoury non-cheese cheetos don't do a lot for me but they are fine.
Easter Buddy
l4SINLu.jpg

Chocolaty means not chocolate.
Yeah, I've had worse fake chocolate but it is the weird sweetness that tries to trick my brain into thinking "chocolate". Not working.
Maritime Madness - Garlic Goodness
OVF96fC.jpg

Their least spicy flavour (except for the cocktail sauce.)
It works fine to add a little garlic flavour into my wraps.
Ghost Strawberry Kiwi
YfOSCN5.jpg

The spirit of the most popular drink flavour of the 90s. Should be served with undead curly fries.
Pretty good stuff and we got to turn the bottle into an after school science experiment.
Dubble Bubble - 3 Fruitastic Flavours
oYm1PKc.jpg

They spelled "fantastic" wrong
This is pretty yummy fruit gum. Recommend for people who are into fruit gum.
Alpine Coockies and Cream Snap Bar (Easter)
qM4AdSi.jpg

Sure, I've eaten this before but not with Easter Eggs barely visible on the packaging.
Still good.
Jean-Talon Chocolate
rcqB3Jz.jpg

There are four tiny chocolate animals in the package!
There's real chocolate in it but unlike the big one, this felt like half-fake/half-real. Which puts it above that bunny I ate.
Hershey's Milkilicious
ObeqVJY.jpg

This seems interesting to me. That said, while it isn't clear in the photo, the bar is shaped like the face of a melty man.
This is fine but I don't find it particularly more "chocolate milk" than other milk chocolate.

Takis Dragon Sweet Chili
3P6WsTp.jpg

Oo, I do like sweet chili flavour.

Shark Bite Blue Raspberry
ehXxgvk.jpg

Here we go again.

Chicken Feet Gummis
ixj6Pd1.jpg

What are we even doing anymore? Are shapes decided by AI now? I would believe an algorithm caused this to happen.

Tunnock's Caramel
kY3IEMC.jpg

This seems old timey. Into it.

Blow Pops Inside Outs
yYwTSF9.jpg

Gum with hard candy inside? This seems like a recipe for disaster.

Oh Henry! Egg
dE6zH4Y.jpg

It's an Oh Henry but slightly rounded and smaller.

Gustav's Dutch Licorice Beehive Licorice
U4yyJnv.jpg


Sweetarts Ropes Twisted Rainbow Punch
wr1fl4J.jpg

Twisted Rainbow Punch is definitely an anime attack.

Ghost Mandarin
zakMBH7.jpg

Oooo, I do love mandarin flavour.
 

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
It's pretty divisive. I hated it as a kid and I'm still not a big fan but I actually think it works well to compliment other flavors. There's an orange/licorice ice cream called Tiger Stripes (or maybe tiger tracks) that's pretty good.

As for the taste, have you ever had aniseed or fennel candy? I feel like if you haven't had licorice you probably haven't but if I'm wrong, very similar taste.

Also, some people find the smell and aphrodisiac. Not me, though.

Hey Johnny, I'm not sure if this is in your wheelhouse or not...

chili-cheese-stick-01.png


I came across these while I was at Shoppers yesterday, and it blew my mind -- mostly because we don't have Chili Cheese Fritos up here, much to my everlasting dismay.

I got one, and it's not bad, but doesn't quite satisfy the craving, y'know?

Yes, "Takis are a type of rolled corn tortilla chip known for their spicy, intense taste."

I've actually never had black licorice. What does it taste like?
Yeah, like Johnny said, it's very hard to describe. If you're going to try it, though, get yourself some of the good, gourmet stuff. Most people's exposure to black licorice is either through Red Vines' black licorice twists (which are bad) or licorice jelly beans (which can vary from awful if it's store brand beans to decent if you're going with something like Jelly Bellys). The really good licorice chews are where it's at, though. I would recommend just getting a small amount from a bulk bin at a candy store, if that's feasible, rather than dropping $6-$7 on a full bag of something you may or may not like.
 

Torzelbaum

(he, him, his)
Let me tell you, if I'm not into a candy (or there's too much of a hard candy), I mix it into my morning oats and that's where my Red Vines black licorice from months and months about have been going.
Uh, how does that usually work out for you?

I had some of those Dinamitas, both the fries and rolled tortilla chip. I like them both but I'd like to see a non spicy-hot variety to really enjoy the corn flavor, especially the rolled chip.
 

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
Takis Dragon Sweet Chili
3P6WsTp.jpg

Oo, I do like sweet chili flavour.
It's as good as you'd think. Less spicy than a lot of the Takis but flavourful.
Shark Bite Blue Raspberry
ehXxgvk.jpg

Here we go again.
Yeah, it's fine. Whatever.
Chicken Feet Gummis
ixj6Pd1.jpg

What are we even doing anymore? Are shapes decided by AI now? I would believe an algorithm caused this to happen.
Good but I'm not sure what the feet shape does. Flavour is strawberry banana I think?
Tunnock's Caramel
kY3IEMC.jpg

This seems old timey. Into it.
It felt... not stale but the kind of semi-hard softness I associate with staleness. But it didn't taste bad. It was good but the texture took me aback.
Blow Pops Inside Outs
yYwTSF9.jpg

Gum with hard candy inside? This seems like a recipe for disaster.
Decent but barely noticed the candy.
Oh Henry! Egg
dE6zH4Y.jpg

It's an Oh Henry but slightly rounded and smaller.
If you like an Oh Henry!, you'll like this.
Gustav's Dutch Licorice Beehive Licorice
U4yyJnv.jpg

These were decent quality Licorice. Still not a big licorice guy but it was the better version of it. Didn't taste overly cheap/fakey.
Sweetarts Ropes Twisted Rainbow Punch
wr1fl4J.jpg

Twisted Rainbow Punch is definitely an anime attack.
I like Sweetarts Rope. I keep getting afraid the inside with have a flavour like the "creme" I've had in a similar snack but it all goes together well.
Ghost Mandarin
zakMBH7.jpg

Oooo, I do love mandarin flavour.
Decent but it's watery in a way that dials down the Mandarin flavour.

Russel Stover's Mint Patty (no sugar)
Gn0ZZNE.jpg

I genuinely don't know if I've had a Russel Stover.

Sunny D Blue Raspberry
8ykzVN8.jpg

Don't put photos of a fruit that never was!

Koala Egg Gummies
hMu0yrV.jpg

I... this isn't possible... is it?

Dill Pickle Cotton Candy
RsGvFKr.jpg

Here we go again.

Bacon Me Crazy Cotton Candy
VP8lr9X.jpg

Clearly, I'm punishing myself.

Pringles Chili Cheese Fries
GxQaDMD.jpg

This will probably taste like any other savoury chip to me. But I'll still like it.

Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookie Biscuit
v816oTV.jpg

Usually I'd complain about this being too many things but at least I think orange biscuits are a thing.

Dubble Bubble Painters
1ldDVBi.jpg

I thought I did these but they were a different mouth colouring gum.

Super Roller Bluebewwy
qr7iHRo.jpg

I know I should comment on "bluebewwy" but I'm more interested in the fact that this is just a sex toy.

Sunny D Blue Raspberry

Sunny D makes drinks that aren't... sunny... now?
Pringles Chili Cheese Fries
GxQaDMD.jpg

This will probably taste like any other savoury chip to me. But I'll still like it.
Oh my god, I want to try these. Chili Cheese Fritos are some of my favorite chips, if not THE favorite for me. I wonder how these compare.

Import, I'm assuming?
Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookie Biscuit

Usually I'd complain about this being too many things but at least I think orange biscuits are a thing.

I love their chocolate oranges, but never had this. Eager to hear about it.

Russel Stover's Mint Patty (no sugar)
Gn0ZZNE.jpg

I genuinely don't know if I've had a Russel Stover.
These are fine, kind of genericky minty chocolate patties
Sunny D Blue Raspberry
8ykzVN8.jpg

Don't put photos of a fruit that never was!
I think I preferred the regular Sunny D. Blue Raspberry ads nothing.
Koala Egg Gummies
hMu0yrV.jpg

I... this isn't possible... is it?
This one had a weird taste. It seemed familiar but I couldn't identify it. Creme maybe? Probably my least favourite gummi eggs but not bad.
Dill Pickle Cotton Candy
RsGvFKr.jpg

Here we go again.
The last time I had pickle cotton candy, I surprisingly didn't hate hate it. This I did, though I managed to finish it. It's just... too garlicky.
Bacon Me Crazy Cotton Candy
VP8lr9X.jpg

Clearly, I'm punishing myself.
Meanwhile, this... didn't really taste like bacon. More like just cotton candy. I bet it's in there but it's way too subtle for me.
Pringles Chili Cheese Fries
GxQaDMD.jpg

This will probably taste like any other savoury chip to me. But I'll still like it.
This actually did have a decent, unique flavour. Granted, in terms of quality it's about equal but the taste is notably different than the other savoury, meaty flavoured chips.
Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookie Biscuit
v816oTV.jpg

Usually I'd complain about this being too many things but at least I think orange biscuits are a thing.
Oh, this was REALLY good. Strong recommend if you like Terry's Chocolate orange.
Dubble Bubble Painters
1ldDVBi.jpg

I thought I did these but they were a different mouth colouring gum.
Decent gum but didn't paint my mouth.
Super Roller Bluebewwy
qr7iHRo.jpg

I know I should comment on "bluebewwy" but I'm more interested in the fact that this is just a sex toy.
OK, so I didn't like this. It's supposed to be like roll-on deodorant but for your tongue but it doesn't work very well and I just don't like the taste. But I'll probably use it to flavour from stuff.

Cherry Blossom
skZcAnj.jpg

A Canadian classic... though I don't like marachino cherries.

Bubblegum Cotton Candy
HYBonf5.jpg

I didn't mean to but I like how this little treat is hiding behind another treat.

Fairtime Taffy Frost Animal Cookie

This feels like it's written by AI.

Takis Nacho Xplosion

Unicorn Fluff Cotton Candy

Delicious horsehair

Super Roller Straw Bewwy

Will I dislike this one, too? Probably.

Warheads Sour Watermelon Soda
c1H7OY2.jpg

I feel like none of the sour sodas were sour. Prove me wrong, Warheads

Gummi Pigs

Looks great if you want to eat props from a David Cronenberg movie.

I feel like this happened before but I’m once again curious what flavor unicorns will turn out to be.

I didn't realize these were a local thing! Came across them and All-Dressed at Superstore the other night, and grabbed one of each on sale.

Haven't tried All-Dressed yet, but these? These are good. They're no Chili Cheese Fritos by a long mile, but they're still good in their own right.
