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

7 treats of Christmas!

QeEDRJ1.jpg


JBear's SO gifted me with 7 candies for the Holidays!

Senzu Beans
Nb2zBwz.jpg

Finally, everyone's favourite narrative workaround presented by everyone's least favourite Goku mentor. I mean, at least he's not a fucking sex pest but despite being a mind-reading talking cat, he leaves shockingly little impressions.

Chocolate Shot
Ht1XzvD.jpg

New vaccine just dropped.

Gummy Sushi
ppYB02S.jpg

If I don't eat this with chopsticks, I've made an error.

D20
YcADGRs.jpg

I actually don't know what's in it but I love the mystery.

Peeps Peppermint Bark
QgKyIX2.jpg

The dipped peeps aren't bad by more than that, peppermint has a notable flavour. I actually like peeps but I always find their attempts at variety are too subtle. But mint flavours are hard to miss. So this seems like a good idea.

Pretz Chicken and Herb
5rF5nSt.jpg

Pretz was recently a plot point in my Eyeshield 21 re-read so... synchronicity.

So since it's the holidays, I think starting with Christmas I'll try one a day! That sounds like a treat for myself. Or maybe I'll just gobble them up tomorrow like a goddamned garbage monster.

Bebeto Metergum Fruit Flavor

YQgwcAA.jpg
Even worse than the last one. No idea what fruit it is supposed to taste like.
Million Dollar Bar
suu3YH2.jpg

790872.jpg
Better than I suspected. I mean, it's just chocolate. That's it. But it's decent quality chocolate, which is more than I suspected. Weirdly, the chocolate itself doesn't look like a million dollar bill.
Grapehead
SWJtkos.jpg

Applehead but grape now.
About the same.
Hershey's Zero Sugar
D1BbMSP.jpg

I think I bought these before I started journaling this. So I guess I got to buy them again.
No bad for fakey chocolate.
Sour Patch Kids Watermelon
w4NKIO5.jpg

Do... they look like watermelons? They aren't even kids anymore.
OK. Just... OK.
Pepsi Max Lemon
53nU4JW.jpg

I assumed this was Extra Caffeine but I guess this is the no-sugar one.
Also just OK. I'm not sure I taste anything more than a subtle aftertaste from fruit colas.
Crush Watermelon
NQ0X7MM.jpg

I wish there was a watermelon Bubly to go with these.
Not bad at all.
Lay's Stax X-Tra Flamin' Hot
lT2N64D.jpg

Curious how extra. Most of these are just pleasantly hot.
Spicy but little flavour that isn't "potato".

Chocolate Shot
Ht1XzvD.jpg

New vaccine just dropped.
This is just frosting in a syringe. I ate it. Can't decide if that's great or terrible. Except it is really awkward.

I also forgot I also got an M&M chocolate figurine and...

dVn64SR.jpg

That's clearly a good chocolate mold but it still came out looking horrific.

Nightmare in the front, candy in the back.

How dare you. He's adorable, I love him.

Just leaving this feels weird. So, I enjoy this thread very much, always have, thanks for sharing your tasty treat impressions with us.

This was a bit weird. They were candies you crunch down on and they were really hard. So I was like "Oh, maybe you suck on them." But the outer shell actually didn't have much flavour.

Speaking of which, I'm not sure what the flavour was. I like them and they had a Sweetart like tartness. The fact that they are hard to chew makes me think this might be a bit on brand. They didn't taste like bland legumes, which they are supposed to, but I would imagine they might be hard to chew, perfect for our tough boys.

Gummy Sushi
ppYB02S.jpg

If I don't eat this with chopsticks, I've made an error.
I couldn't find chopsticks.
Also, I really appreciate this from a design standpoint. Like, it just taste like gummies but the whole set looks good. Even when you realize that the uramaki is just a gummi bear stuffed in a green apple ring.

YcADGRs.jpg

I actually don't know what's in it but I love the mystery.
They were called +1 Cherry Potions and shaped like little potion bottles. Serviceable Candy.

The peppermint does help these stand out, even if they are lightly pepperminty.

I'm late. Here's stuff I ate last Saturday...

gWbENGG.jpg


Junior Mints Spooky Mints
E7VhNN4.jpg

It's just different colour junior mints. Still good, though.

Dairy Milk Caramello
jZxkNaz.jpg

It's basically just a Caramilk but it's a very nice Caramilk.

Boston Baked Beans
2mzyyj2.jpg

I wasn't prepared to like these but there's something nice and simple about these candy coated peanuts. And I'm not really a peanut guy. Still, very nice.

Bebeto Metergum Apple

LJx1hoy.jpg

Eh... It's just not very good gum.

Orange Crush drink mix
noDR8r1.jpg

Not bad but needs to be mixed with an orange tonic water.

Pepsi Max Cherry
RwzuiDN.jpg

It's OK but it mostly tastes like a Pepsi. Maybe it's just me but the cherry taste is subtle.

Combos Cheddar Cheese

9fSI2mx.jpg

The most basic combo flavour. It's fine.

Kitkat Pops

uoPmSGJ.jpg

The corn part is weird. Not bad, but weird. It's not like there are hunks of corn, just a conspicuous corn flavour.

And here's this week.

Hershey's Special Dark
ThjB92f.jpg

Not sure what makes it special yet. It might just be dark.

Reese's White Trees

QMjOsyF.jpg


They do like their seasonal shape foods.

Sneaky Stardust Blue Raspberry
bN8u8ay.jpg

According to one expert, the flavor profile of raspberry was developed using "mostly esters of the banana, cherry, and pineapple variety."
Terry's White Chocolate Orange
AABJ1Es.jpg

I like the oranges but the white chocolate flavour? Not so much.

Chubby Pineapple Sunshine
K17SZQd.jpg

This is a great LSD name.

Herds
JkTEhk4.jpg

Oh, fun a gummy you can play with... by sticking their noses up their butts.

Crush Strawberry
5cVBdK7.jpg

Generally, I don't care for the non-orange Crushes.

Pringles Hot Ones Los Calientes Verde
rCxsDzm.jpg

I do like the hot Pringles OK, as long as they are flavour-first.

Kist Fresa
0cvjdzx.jpg

Again, not a big Strawberry soda person. Also, is Kist just another name for Fanta?

Peeps Skulls
IqRgDCp.jpg

It's Peeps. It's fine.

Hershey's Special Dark is baby's first dark chocolate bar. For the longest time, it was the most widely available option; just like diner/perculator brewed coffee being the dominant commercial version in the US for so long.

It's... a dark chocolate bar.
Reese's White Trees

QMjOsyF.jpg

It's OK. Not super into the white chocolate. I also find these shape ones a bit PB heavy for me. I tend to like a lighter PB touch.
Sneaky Stardust Blue Raspberry
bN8u8ay.jpg
Blue Raspberry remains something I'm tired of.
Terry's White Chocolate Orange
AABJ1Es.jpg

I like the oranges but the white chocolate flavour? Not so much.
Actually good. I'd prefer a milk chocolate or even a dark chocolate but I still love the orangey flavour in it.
Chubby Pineapple Sunshine
K17SZQd.jpg

This is a great LSD name.
But a pretty boring flavour
Herds
JkTEhk4.jpg

Oh, fun a gummy you can play with... by sticking their noses up their butts.
The gummies were a little tough and they actually didn't connect well at all.
Crush Strawberry
5cVBdK7.jpg

Generally, I don't care for the non-orange Crushes.
It's OK. Again, if I had a strawberry Bubly to pair it with, that might be another story.
Pringles Hot Ones Los Calientes Verde
rCxsDzm.jpg

I do like the hot Pringles OK, as long as they are flavour-first.
Pretty hot but the heat/flavour balance wasn't quite there. I'm really just not a hot sauce fan.
Kist Fresa
0cvjdzx.jpg

Again, not a big Strawberry soda person. Also, is Kist just another name for Fanta?
It's fine.
Peeps Skulls
IqRgDCp.jpg

It's Peeps. It's fine.
Also fine.

BTW, I'm also hosting a top 50 Adventure Movie list. I have four lists now but I'm hoping to get to around 15. If you want to send a list, check out the rules here and send me a list of your 25 favourite adventure films.

Gummi Bulging Eyeballs
W55kNYH.jpg

"Oh, you."

Buzzsaw Pop
7czSDEi.jpg

I've had this before and it isn't good but I didn't think to log it so I'm having it again for posterity.

Peeps Stocking
oGPL5du.jpg

I bet this shape will taste different than the other shapes.

Peekaboo Penguin
LPzvyh8.jpg

It's a candy in a candy and I bet it tastes mediocre but I like it aesthetically.

Sneaky Stardust Strawberry
an7v9qr.jpg

The last of these flavours.

Hot Cocoa Balls
oWxPV1W.jpg

I better try one early tonight. It's miserable out and perfect for cocoa.

Hershey's
haybqCe.jpg

It's a chocolate in bar form. Beautiful in its simplicity.

Crush Cherry drink mix

9SsHRhs.jpg


Pringles Scorchin' Cheddar
lCvyoPG.jpg

So now they are just adding spice to all their basic flavours, huh?

This is a decent gummi.
Buzzsaw Pop
7czSDEi.jpg

Bleh. Last time I got one I was slowly sucking on it for months and not being happy. Last night I just gave up and crunched down. Still don't recommend beyond the fun look. Oh, and the blood is the packaging, not on the candy, if that is the real deal breaker.
Peeps Stocking
oGPL5du.jpg

I bet this shape will taste different than the other shapes.
I actually think this worked well as a shape. It felts slighting smoother than usual.
Peekaboo Penguin
LPzvyh8.jpg

It's a candy in a candy and I bet it tastes mediocre but I like it aesthetically.
It's pretty cute and both the chocolate and the candy tasted pretty decent. A cute treat for kids.
Sneaky Stardust Strawberry
an7v9qr.jpg

The last of these flavours.
And that's it. Not a lot going on. It's subpar gum fragments in pink sugar stuff.
Hot Cocoa Balls
oWxPV1W.jpg

I better try one early tonight. It's miserable out and perfect for cocoa.
It's fine. I wish these would melt better without me having to not just stir but really work on the chocolate.
Hershey's
haybqCe.jpg

It's a chocolate in bar form. Beautiful in its simplicity.
It's a good bar. Not to be confused with Mr. Goodbar.
Crush Cherry drink mix

9SsHRhs.jpg
I liked this a lot more than strawberry.
Pringles Scorchin' Cheddar
lCvyoPG.jpg

So now they are just adding spice to all their basic flavours, huh?
A completely OK cheddar Pringles with slight heat.
Coca Cola Vanilla
OEUvBYd.jpg

Mmm... beige.
I actually liked this a lot more than I expected. The vanilla gives it a nice, smooth taste.

For Tuesday

Warheads Sour Popping Candy
1wGRHE5.jpg

Cackle Apple is fun to say but it makes zero sense.

Aero Truffle Tiramisu

ThFLB3l.jpg

I always forget what Tiramisu is but I remember I like it.

Andes Peppermint Bark Snap Bar

SO8wOGh.jpg


I liked the other one but I feel like I might have liked the pieces version rather than the stick... for some reason.

Scary Eyes

Am07tu0.jpg

I guess any bag of eyeballs is kind of scary, to an extent.

Chewy Lemondheads Fruit Mix
iXnS1BY.jpg

So... should it be fruit heads?

Gold Mine
L7pSk0s.jpg

Heh heh heh! Gold, I tells ya! Sweet, sweet gold!

Hershey's Hot Chocolate Bomb - Milk Chocolate with Cinnamon
OvRgY3M.jpg

Yet another bomb. Can cinnamon make this stand out?

Pringles Scorchin' BBQ
MrRzNqV.jpg

Yet another classic flavour, but hotter.

Jarritos Pineapple
IDOc1Oe.jpg

When Mexican restaurants made a comeback in this town, so did Jarritos.

Crush Pineapple Drink Mix
u3tv8D9.jpg

I think this is the end of the Crush drink mixes.

It's funny, I REALLY like pineapple but I tend to (slightly) bounce of pineapple flavoured candy and drinks. I rarely DISLIKE like it, but only have excitement for the real deal. Even then, it will never be as good as when I lived in Thailand. So tangy it made my tongue sore.
