I Never Knew…

24 Jun

So I’m at work, a little lonely and again so hungry, so I’ve decided to torture myself with food. Haha.

Why not look up strange varaiations on foods or possible flavors,products, etc. we don’t have around here?



Apparently they are chocolate-covered Twinkies. And they apparently are difficult to find in some parts of the country. I’m not a big Twinkie fan myself, but Wikipedia claims that these things are terrific.

Strange Pringles Flavors

Three very strange Pringles flavors, available in Asia

We all are familiar with Sour Cream & Onion and Barbecue flavors but how about Curry? Or Soft-Shelled Crab? Or even Seaweed? uh…yum? Most of these flavors are only available internationally.

Strange Kit Kat Bar Flavors

Again, another food with bizarre international flavors. Japan boasts  “tasty” versions such as Sweet Potato, Apple Vinegar, Sweet Corn, Pumpkin and Green Tea.

Other countries have special recipe Kit Kats (made from different cocoa beans) and other slightly altered version of the bars we know.

A Kool-lickle

There is somewhere in Mississippi where lucky patrons can get a pickle “soaked in strawberry, cherry or tropical fruit Kool-Aid…” Wow, how could that taste?

Butterscotch Krimpets

From what I’ve read these little cakes are only available in Pennsylvania and they have a huge following.  They are mini sponge cakes with butterscotch icing. Sounds pretty yummy to me 🙂 . A review can be read here, for those so inclined.

Cereal Variations I’ve Never Heard Of

I consider myself almost a cereal conniseur, I love the stuff. So how is it these cereal versions escaped my knowledge?

Post’s Dino Smores Pebbles. They have tiny dog (or exscuse me, dinosaur) bones miked with chocolate and marshmellow pieces. How tasty! They appear to be still available.

Post Cinna-Graham Honeycombs   Um,yes please? They also boast a Strawberry-Blasted version!

 Kellog’s Special K Yoghurty version   Special K and yogurt? I’m there. Or at least, I would be if it weren’t only available in the UK.

Garbage Plates

These piping-hot plates of ridiculousness are found Nick Tahou Hots in Rochester, New York.  It “is a combination of one selection of cheeseburger, hamburger, red hots, white hots, Italian sausage, chicken tender, fish (haddock), fried ham, grilled cheese, or eggs; and two sides of either home fries, French fries, baked beans, or macaroni salad. On top of that are the options of mustard and onions, ketchup, and Nick’s proprietary hot sauce, a greasy sauce with spices and ground beef. It’s served with rolls or Italian toast on the side,[3] which is made fresh at the bakery next door.[2]” Good Lord!

Strange Lay’s Potato Chip Flavors

Again there are a good handful of weird flavors for international Lay’s consumers. Our neighbors to the north can enjoy flavors such as Fries & Gravy, Curry, Wasabi and Salsa.

Rare Poptarts

Some hard-to-find and/or discontinued flavors include Gingerbread, Orange Cream, Icy Cold Polar and Chocolate Graham Cracker.

    Wow! this is pretty cool. Some girl in my class was from Mississippi and always used to talk about how she used to buy kool-lickles from a store somewhere a round her neighborhood. but yeah nice post 🙂
