    21 Foods That Forgot How To Food

    Flavours that should never have been, and yet were.

    1. Whale beer. /

    This controversial Icelandic beer is made with whale meal and will apparently make you "a true Viking". Brewery spokesman Dagbjartur Arilíusson described the taste as something "in between beef and fish." So now you know.

    2. Thanksgiving gumballs.

    Bringing together the flavours of turkey, pumpkin, cranberries and gum! Finally.

    3. Chocolate with bacon and potato crisps.

    It's like there's a party in your mouth and someone threw up on the carpet!

    4. Salted caramel green tea.

    5. Cheddar and chorizo donuts.

    6. Turkey and gravy soda.

    Ever wondered how carbonated meat juices would taste? Wonder no more.

    7. Scorpion lollipops.

    Ingredients: Maltitol syrup, artificial flavouring, colours (E102, E133), scorpion.

    8. Charcoal ice cream.

    "Disappointingly like vanilla."

    9. Ginger and orange popcorn.

    10. Foie gras bubble gum.

    It's okay, it's cruelty-free.

    11. Orange juice cereal.

    Orange juice! And milk! Together in a bowl! Discontinued, alas.

    12. Crocodile egg ice cream.

    This ice cream features crocodile eggs instead of chicken eggs, because crocodile eggs are 80% yolk.

    13. Milk chocolate filled with liquid salted licorice.

    14. Bacon popcorn.

    The bacon shark, jumped.

    15. Blue cheese ice cream.

    The veiny, blue goodness of a mould-ripened cheese, now frozen and in pint tubs ready for spooning into your face.

    16. Watermelon Oreos.

    Apparently they taste like vanilla and watermelon-flavoured gum. Which may be what you want in a biscuit, I dunno.

    17. Baked potato-flavour Kit Kat.

    Strangely intriguing. I will not rest until I have tried this.

    18. Breast milk ice cream.

    A dessert called "Baby Gaga" made with human breast milk actually went on sale in London, but was banned in 2011.

    19. Buffalo wing soda.

    Combining "spicy hot-wing flavour" with "the subtle acidity of an orange".

    20. Ramen chocolate.

    A delightful combination of 63% dark chocolate, crunchy ramen noodles, onion, garlic and soy sauce.

    21. And finally, fried chicken Oreos.
