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

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
I don't think I ever met another person who actually liked the taste of a fun dip stick, but it was my favorite part. I would usually eat one separate and use my finger in lieu. The mild flavor is exactly why it was a personal fave. It definitely spoke to my Japanese side lol.
Yeah, I like what it is doing in contrast and I love contrast in mouth-feel, flavours, etc but I wouldn't want to eat it on it's own.

BTW, do you like banana runts? I don't mind them but a lot of people hate them and I feel like the taste is comparable.
It's 'fermented butter', not honey. What that means, I'm not sure, but it'll probably just taste like a very rich, buttery chocolate. Also the pretzel-sticks underneath the chocolate are advertised as using whole grain flower so those'll probably taste different too.
Oooh, this sounds good. As I get older, I do like heartier tasting carbs. Mostly it's texture.

Ah, Combos. The only snack with a canon Marvel super hero.

Haha oh noooo. I haven't eaten a banana runt in at least several decades but I can still taste them in my mind's eye. They do indeed have a mild, sugary flavor. But that flavor is tainted beyond redemption by icky artificial-banana flavor. Which might be the worst artificial fruit flavor there is next to artificial apple and artificial grape.

Bought a cheap toy with some candy attached.
Oof, this is the worst gum I've had so far. The flavour isn't great but it then turns into bitter ooze with no chewability. It's real gross.

Pocky Tasty
OQ4bLrA.jpg

I don't know if this is just regular Pocky in some special packaging or not. It looks like it's some milk and honey flavour based on the packaging.
I liked this but I don't think I could tasted the fermented butter or if it was used in the chocolate or bread stick or both. Still, Pocky is good.
Kool-Aid Popping Candy

I did the Christmas version of this but I think this is a different flavour.
I don't know what makes tropical kool-aid pop rocks "Eastery" but I guess it isn't bad. I like the kool-aid tart flavour but I hate getting to the part where it is just the plain sweetness of the sugar rocks.

Combos Pizzeria

It's weird the flavour is a location. It looks like it is more cheese focused but also apparently the other one has a cracker shell (my mistake) and this is pretzel.
This is more cheese based than the other pizza ones and they just have a duller flavour. I can KIND OF parse some subtle pizza elements, I guess.

Lime Crush

I love orange Crush but let's see what lime can do. Something, probably.
Appropriately, kind of tastes like half a 7-Up.

Hershey's Cookies and Cream with Graham Crackers

Yum! Looking forward to it.
I like the cookies and cream bar and the graham crackers don't add a TON to it, still move the needle in adding something I like.

Jolly Rancher Green Apple Drink Mix

I love green apple flavours.
Yeah, these Jolly Rancher drink mixes are everything I like in a Jolly Rancher in drink form. Good stuff.

Hershey's Birthday Cake

I like birthday cake but I'm kind of tired of birthday cake as a flavour and I'd rather just have chocolate.

Bazooka Bubblegum

Wait, not Bazooka Joe? If this comes with comics, you will all get to read them.

Andes Mint Cookie Crunch Thins

I have had this in stick form but not in little bitties.

Going through some basic ass Crush flavours.

Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry Drink Mix

It's weird how often blue raspberry is a flavour. I've never had a real blue raspberry.

Kool-Aid Popping Candy 3-Pack

This has two flavours I've yet to try.

Asterisks on your flavour feels like I should be wary.

Herman is the fucking worst. I can already tell. Cut your losses, Guy Trapped in His Own Turtleneck.

I don't think the Fortune knows what a fortune is. Also, recycling could help the world but pales in comparison to massive systemic change. What about that?

There are typically very strict governmental guidelines that determine whether or not a product can say it has cheese in it or calls itself cheese, so I assume that's what's going on here. It can still taste good, but it probably doesn't have any actual cheese in it. The way 'buttery spread' doesn't actually have butter in it but still tastes aight.

Fun semi-related fact: Tutti Frutti is an actual FDA approved flavour. I don't know why that one always stands out to me as seeming weird to be on the list, but it does!
