    So my mom came home from the grocery store the other day and I saw that she had gotten me some gum,which she usually does. But this was a new lemon flavor and she thought I might like it. I put one piece in my mouth and cringed. It's like a chewy cough drop, but worse because it has no real sugar in it. If you ever see lemon gum, be sure to avoid it. I'm thinking of taking a poll at school and giving out pieces and seeing how many people hate it vs. how many actually like it. If it yields interesting results maybe I'll post them here. Stay tuned for an exciting update...

    buttered popcorn Mike and Ikes!

    we had these once, and they were surprisingly good, though I couldn't get over the fact that someone would flavor something like that!

    Speaking of guac.

    I just made some KILLER guacamole.

    2 avocados
    Spicy SPIKE brand seasoning
    regular SPIKE brand seasoning*
    a 'hint' of lime
    dash of sea salt
    dash of garlic
    2 spoonfuls of PACE picante(medium)

    whew, it was GOOOOOD

    went well with the burritos we made(that had my famous spicy sautéed onions ;)

    I'm starting to really like cooking:D

    oops gotta go clean up!


    *Spike Seasoning Is a multi seasoning that I use a lot, it's very savory and is a pretty darn good blend of a lot of different flavors, in conjunction with some extra pepper, some garlic, and some good salt, you have yourself a killer seasoning combo.

    Fort Worth.
    Salsa Verde Doritos. period.
     
  13. Gatorade use to make some lemon/lime flavored gum. It was really good, kinda sour. But didn't last too long.

    My favorite chip flavor: Kruncher's Jalapeno. Too bad my local market doesn't sell them anymore. But sometimes I find them in the vending machines at my job:mad:

    Hey reasonbass.....I remember that Gatorade gum. The Big 5 sporting goods around here stll sell it. It tastes good for about 20 seconds, so you have to buy about 10 pieces at a time.

    I generally like citrus flavored things, so I might enjoy the gum you speak of.

    Anyone tried the ketchup flavored chips? How about black pepper? I am always amazed at the plethora of flavors available nowadays. I laugh at the ones they name for cities famour for a certain flavor. How about KC BBQ, or Maui Onion, Santa Fe Ranch. I can remember when it was limited to basically Doritos, sour cream and onion, BBQ, and plain. Oh yeah, the cheeto's too. But those were plain cheese flavored.

  16. If it's eclipse of course its gonna taste cough dropish...they want a strong breath-altering flavor.
     
  17. sorta on topic...

    Where is that barf smiley when you need it? I did some tech support for one of our Canadian plants, and they sent me a case of ketchup flavored Doritos. YUCK! They sound OK in theory, but they are AWFUL in real life.:spit:

    Some of our plants outside the continental US make some strange flavors.

    Hawaii has shrimp flavored chips, and watermelon flavored cracker jacks. Mexico has a lot of strange flavors, but most are citrus, with lots of variations of lime and whatever. Even stranger stuff from the European and Asian plants.

    Has anybody heard of the Jones turkey and gravy flavored soda? Apparently the people who got to try it really liked it.
