Personally, I think Blue Pepsi tastes like carbonated blue Kool-Aid, except much less refreshing. The aftertaste is like chemicals. I think blue anti-freeze would probably taste better.

For those who've never ventured to the States, Twinkies -- as well as any similar snack cakes -- taste like chemicals.

Here in America, we like our chemicals. Most pre-packaged food here is chock full of 'em. And, then there's always the gunk in the air. (Sometimes in Houston we have Ozone watches, some serious enough that they recommend no one goes outside.)

Yes, we in the States absolutely love our chemicals. Sometimes I get the urge to just drink some industrial waste in a cup and speed the process up a bit.

But seriously, I'm a hypocrit 'cause I eat plenty of food that's terrible for me but tastes pretty good.

They were helpful; thanks Zorro. I now know to take my own food with me when I vacation in America. If Twinkies don't get damaged much when dropped off the sixth floor of a building, then they are not the food for me

I said 'if done properly' which means take a lunch bag and fill it part way with flour, put the egg in it, and make sure it's thoroughly surounded by the flour, then drop it, the flour absorbs the impact.. as for the twinkie, there are probably other foods that can withstand the same thing, a twinkie is actually sponge cake, it's just got some extra chemical additives for freshness and to keep it 'moist'..

ah, you got me there *admits defeat*

I take comfort in the fact that, as dualg so rightly puts it, there is no egg...

and as there is no spoon, either, then the whole British institution that is the egg and spoon race has died a horrible death. Say it ain't so!

Whew! I feel so much better now. I am the egg and spoon queen; it was the only sport I was ever good at on Junior School Sports Day... and don't believe what anyone tells you; I never boiled the egg first!

Really -- for all of you who have eaten Taco Bell, hot dogs and other shady food:

What guarantee do you have that the meat you think you ate is really what you ate? For all you know, you might have already eaten rat, dog, cat, etc.

Ah, time to step into the way-back machine and venture to the year 1920 when chances are that the pack of beef you just brought home is actually human meat that no one noticed..

actually I was serious, back before the 1930's they would remove beef from the cows bones by dropping the carcasess in boiling water, and the people who's job it was to stir the water walking along planks would sometimes fall in, and wouldn't be noticed untill after the meat was shipped out and sold, there were no laws regulating that kind of stuff untill after someone wrote a book about it.. I can't remember for the life of me who wrote it or what it was called, but it was really an interresting book..

Well... rat meat is greasy and has a very gamey flavor to it and is pretty stringy and tough. You might be able to pass it off as jerkey, but it would stand out too much in most regular dishes to pass for beef, pork or chicken. It's the sort of gross thing you'd only eat if, for example, you were on spectacularly unsuccessful week long hunting trip and someone dropped the pack with all the food while crossing a stream leaving everyone half starved and two days hike from the vehicle.
