    Taking a big bite of vanilla yogurt, only to discover it's plain. Tight lips

     

    Same thing when taking a swig of Sprite/7Up/Sierra Mist and discovering the syrup is out on the soda fountain. Dead

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      Sweet Tarts

      I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

        Not as startling as Sour Patch Kids, though (which make my teeth hurt, BTW).

         

        Ooh, that reminds me...never eat Jelly Bellys in the dark.  You'll always end up eating the nasty flavors, like buttered popcorn and PB (flavors I adore, aside from the bean version), then feel like retching.

          Thought of another candy-related one.  In the UK I once had an Irish creme chocolate bar that had REAL liquid whiskey in each square.  I was totally not expecting that, as I'm sure that could not be sold in the US, at least not without an ID check.

              Hmmm...yes.  Though that could be kinda tasty, too, in a different way.  That's one I'd be tempted to try, actually.

                A few years back I watched my dad pour orange juice into his coffee.  I kept quiet, trying to figure out WHY he was pouring orange juice into his coffee....turns out he thought the gallon container was milk, but hadn't realized his mistake until the first sip!  After the initial shock, he laughed and figured out what he had done.  Then, he drank his OJ coffee.      Big grin

                      I think I might drink OJ coffee before that.  We had an alcoholic neighbor years ago who would drink root beer with tequila.  He was very generous, but we never wanted to share his concoctions.

                        This doesn't fit exactly, but I'll put it here anyway.

                         

                        I put sugar in my coffee.  One day, I was out of sugar, so I used powdered sugar.

                         

                        And...

                         

                        NO.  Just, no.

                         

                        "Powdered sugar" isn't just a different form-factor of sugar.  There's other stuff in it.

                         

                        Now I know.

                          Root beer? Good lord why not just do tequila shots! 

                           

                          I had a neighbor who swore that drinking beer through a straw made the buzz come faster. However he was mixing that with other chemicals so who knows.

                            I put sugar in my coffee.  One day, I was out of sugar, so I used powdered sugar.

                             

                            And...

                            I think corn starch is the other stuff. Yeah it doesn't work for much. 

                             

                            BTW sorry I missed you at monkey. I think I saw you but was shy because you're all like famous and stuff.

                              That was always the urban myth that floated around when I was in my late teens.  I got really sick my first semester of college drinking some nasty Malibu rum drink with a straw.  I have refused to drink anything alcoholic other than margaritas with a straw, since.  I haven't had Malibu since then, either...

                                Is it just me, or does powdered sugar just taste different, too?  On a doughnut I'd rather have granulated.
