I have tried the vanilla coke and although I didnt like it the first time, I do now. It's more satisfying when you have it with food and not by itself. Otherwise it has a kind of odd aftertaste.
I will try the blue pepsi. When is that coming out?
I realize this is a soda thread, but I must add...I was at the store yesterday and in the frozen section, in the frozen potato section Ore Ida is selling......Blue, yes blue french fries I realize this is a tie-in for Jimmy Neutron but....I'm sorry but this is disgusting! See for yourselves! http://www.nick.com/ads/oreida/
I couldn't bring myself to allow my son to get them even though he wanted them (and this from a kid who doesn't like any fries except McDonalds fries) which he rarely gets because we don't go to mickey d's!
I hate Pepsi anyway. Flavored Coke only tastes good if you do it fountain style - real vanilla added, or lots of sliced lemons for lemon coke. I am partial to a good cherry coke (grenadine or maraschino syrup) every once in a while - but the rest of that **** is nasty, nasty, nasty. It's like all the so called energy drinks - Red Bull, Merlin, RockStar- that distinct aftertaste of chemical crap, no matter what color they make it. A rep brought me some energy/caffeine concotion that was bright blue (!) - needless to say it dyed my tongue, and just like beets, was definitely noticeable exiting my system! (Sorry about that one)
You know what they call diet Pepsi and vodka - the supermodel
Red Bull and vodka - wide awake drunk
I just bought a case of vanilla coke to try. I'll see how it sells and let you all know. About the blue french fries - I had mesquite smoke flanksteak and purple pomme fretes as a special last week... (my own version of blue ff).... didn't sell one. I guess western NJ is not ready for blue fries yet.
As for the french fries: they also have chocolate ones and cinnamon sugar ones. Isn't there enough sugary junk out there???? Or aren't the kids flabby enough? Even the active ones are getting tires around the middle.
Kimmie -- I understand that by "blue chip" you mean what we down here call french fries, and I agree. However, blue potato crisps (chips to us southerners) are great! My favorite junk food company, Terra Chips, makes them as well as other potato and veggie chips, and they almost make me feel not guilty to eat them! (Althugh the Spiced Taro chips are my all-time favorites.)
I do believe there was a study done once and it showed that the most unappealing color for food was BLUE I would have to agree with one exception...naturally occuring blues. Blue corn, Maryland blue crabs, bluefin tuna, Eric Clapton, etc
