A few years back we went to Italy for our friends wedding (for those of you that came over for the P post this is the same trip from the whole penis biting incident).
We were having a great trip. And then Venice happened. After a long day traveling people got a little cranky and there was a little tiff. We all went to our rooms to settle down and not wanting to go out we raided the mini fridge and met....Campari Soda.
Aws. Cute little bottle. Darling, really. And it turns out....evil.
Thinking it was just a little cherry soda or something like that off popped the lid and down went the "soda". And OMG! that was just, well, a really, really big mistake. Turns out it supposed to be mixed into a drink not just "enjoyed" straight and man do I wish I had known that little tidbit just a few minutes sooner. This stuff is just foul! And really likes to linger. Nothing would get rid of the taste. Brushing your teeth, gargling, eating other foods, drinking other drinks. Nope it coated your mouth and would.not.let.go. It's been like 6 years and still it just gave me a body shuddering flash back.
Learn from my mistake people. Cuteness does not equal yumminess.
Next up! Tofurky. Now, I'll totally admit it has been like 13 years since I've had one of these but it was just so bad it stuck with me! Back in high school I decided to go veggie on a bet (I still am all these years later and so won that bet). My first Thanksgiving my mom decided to make me a Tofurkey to go along with the dinner. She's pretty great, right?
Okay, so this one doesn't even look cute. But we had to give it a try. Over the years I've tried a LOT of fake meats. I like a lot of them. Some have been too realistic, some kinda tasteless. Tofurky, so fun to say and so, so, very....bad.
It even came complete with faux-giblets and wishbone! Yeah. It was, just, unfortunate.
Sweet Corn Cupcakes
This is one of the newest additions to the list. Back from the [C]upcake are the devil post earlier this month. They definitely merit another mention.
Just imagine slightly sweetened cornbread with a huge dollop of oh so very sweet browned butter and powdered sugar icing.
One of those things where your brain totally riots what's happening and there's a bit of a panic stricken search for the closest trash bin.
Yeah. The dogs and cats wouldn't even touch them.
Damn me and my impulse buys! This one kicked my ass and kicked it thoroughly.
We have a bunch of really great used bookstores in our town and I just cannot be held accountable when I'm let loose in one. Especially when there are little gifties around the check out.
And that's how Zombie mints happen.
Yeah. They're pretty bad. One of the few times I didn't smell before I tasted and I ended up with a mouth full of liver flavored mints. Or, well, brain flavored mints.
Awesome zombie tin. Awesomely bad zombie mints.
Oh, and a little work related "Things I wish had NEVER been in my mouth"..... flea meds are really really bad too. I so sympathize with the cats and the whole foaming at the mouth darting around the house bit they do. The stuff is gross! Dewormer though tastes like banana. Just thought I'd share. :)
So. What's the worst things that's ever made it's way to your mouth?!
